Today Madewell is opening it's highly anticipated store in Portland! 

I was invited to a pre-grand opening brunch yesterday, where I met up with Jade of Endlessly Enraptured, and we spent part of the afternoon shopping and meeting other bloggers and ladies just as excited to see a store finally opening in town. 

The shop is located in the Pearl, just off of Burnside (where Diesel used to be), and the weather was bright and warm, a perfect welcome into town. The employees were so friendly, and we even got to meet the head designer, Somsack Sikhounmuong

Thank you Madewell for a lovely event, and so happy to have you in Portland!

Easter outfit

Swedish Hasbeens sent me these shoes just in time for Easter (and a small break in the rain). I love Hasbeens, they're oddly comfortable and these will be perfect for summer!
This outfit was partially inspired by Chocolat, it's been ages since I've watched it, but her outfits always stick on my head. And how cute is this skirt?! Apparently a lot of girls in this area have it, it's a wagon trail print which I like to believe is the Oregon Trail :)

On the cusp of spring

Portland gave us a taste of sunny spring right on schedule, then jumped into April showers. Every time it starts to warm up people pack away their coats and pull out the sundresses. Having lived here all my life I know better and enjoy the blue skies but embrace the gray that will follow for another few months. It's like a little vacation every year! 

I did however pull this 40s novelty skirt out of storage, I traded it on Swapdom last winter and this cardigan matches it so perfectly! I just posted some new items in my profile up for trade, so go check them out! You can find me here
