Chambray, Stripes & Sunflowers

Shirt: Forever 21 / T-Shirt: Forever 21 / Jeans: Old Navy / Shoes: Nine West / Sunglasses: Target / Tote: Free People / Necklace: BaubleBar / Watch: Michael Kors / Bracelets: JCrew & Alex & Ani

This casual outfit is a favorite of mine, I adore the waxed jean look, but I have had multiple pairs that the wax washed right off after the first or second wash, how rude. Thent I found these Rockstar jeans at Old Navy, they are the perfect "waxed" jeans but they don't have that sticky texture and they aren't stiff they just add a little edge to a classic outfit. 

I am so so sad, I lost this chambray shirt in Vegas. It was probably the most worn item in my closet, even though it was from forever 21 it lasted so long, I swear it is two years old. I wore this shirt over everything, it was the perfect addition to any outfit, and now I will spend this next week until forever looking for another one of these bad boys. This shirt was so perfect because it was fitted, not just a big floppy button down. I also had snaps, not buttons! Judge me. Also, I am a smaller person so I need to be careful not to have things look like I am drowning in them, I can loose my shape very easily, and then I quickly look like a little girl, or a little boy to be more specific. So the hunt is on, if anyone has any suggestion on where to find another PERFECT chambray shirt, please let me know in the comments below! I would love you for life for it!

August 2014 Favorites

For outfit details: Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5

Here is a look at some of my August favorites, what are yours? 
Remember by collaboration with KuDeTa Boston? LOVE! 
I can not believe that it is September already. Kev and I were talking about how we really didn't do much this summer, last summer we spent planning the wedding, so we really didn't do much last summer either. I think I can think of enough stuff to do this fall to make up for it though. I always hated the fall, most likely because school came along with fall, but now that I am older, I adore fall. I got married in the fall last year and I couldn't have thought of a better time of year. I have a long list of to do's for this fall that I can not wait to get to, Apple picking, hot apple cider, vineyards, a visit to Yankee Candle, you catch my drift.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway going on with TheLoveKnotShop. Happy Labor Day! Enjoy yourself and do something fun, or do nothing and relax, that always makes me happy.

All White // & A Giveaway! {TheLoveKnotShop}

I had to get one more wear out of this white dress before the summer ended. I bought this dress to wear this time last year for my bridal shower, I can't even believe it has almost been 1 year since our wedding. It honestly seems like yesterday, but at the same time seems like it was 10 years ago. I would totally do it over and over again.

I love loved this dress, when I wore it last year I paired it with a really sparkly statement necklace because psh, I was the bride. This time around I kept it simple with these beautiful, dainty rings from TheLoveKnotShop. How amazing are they, I mean seriously, could they be any more perfect.

Make sure you hop over to TheLoveKnotShop and check out the huge variety of styles – from this adorable crown ring, twisted bands to a set of hammered stacking rings. I also love the fact that TheLoveKnotShop offers solid gold (rather than gold plated) and all of the pieces are in my price range -- The plus side of solid gold is that it can be worn all the time and you don’t have to worry about the metal getting discolored or scratched (which is really frustrating when that happens). I swear to you these pieces are Tiffany's quality without the "brand name" mark up. Now, Stack Away!! 
(Scroll to the bottom of this post to find out how you can start your own stack)

Portland Casual

T-Shirt: Forever 21 / Jacket: Forever 21 / Shoes: Forever 21 / Shorts: Forever21 / Tote: Free People  / Sunnies: Kate Spade / Neckace: Target

We spent some time wandering the streets of Alberta in Portland on a beautiful Friday night. This was the perfect outfit for it, not to casual, but not to dressy and super comfortable to walk around the neighborhood. It didn't really get chilly until much later that night, so my shirts and blazer were the perfect combo. 

The food choices are endless in Portland, and you really can't go wrong. So, we spent some time on a beautiful outdoor patio eating fried pickles and drinking wine. It honestly does not get better than that. I am by no means a foodie, but it is so hard not to become one living in Portland, the food is just on point everywhere you go, and there are not really any chains which I love, Eat Local! Live Local! Also, side note, the people in Portland are soo nice, coming from New England & Boston it was so weird at first but it is really nice to be honest, and sort of refreshing, it took some getting used to but I totally love it. Take me back!

Black & Gold // Mount Hood, Oregon

Tank: Free People / Shorts: American Eagle / Necklace: Bauble Bar / Sunglasses: Kate Spade / Tote: Free People / Shoes: Nine West

On Saturday of last week, my last day in Oregon we went to Hood River & the Fruit Loop, which is an adorable little town with a 30 mile drive with vineyards, fruit stands, pick your own flowers and so much more, if you are ever in Oregon I highly highly recommend heading to Mount Hood. It is about 45 min from Portland. It was the perfect day trip, and you could spend so much more time there if you wanted to make a weekend out of it. Don't forget to stop at the Multnomah Falls on your way, you can see our little stop over on my instagram @sobeanie. The weather was perfect on Saturday so we totally lucked out, but these stops would be breathtaking even if it was raining. You all know how much I love flowers and gardening, these fields where literally to die for, I wanted to pick them all and see if they would let me come home with a huge bouquet on the plane..yea I didn't even try... 

I wore my new statement necklace from Bauble Bar, and one of my favorite tanks from free people, also seen here. And of course my American Eagle cut off jean shorts. It was a perfect outfit for all of our activities, I could have gone more causal, but why on earth would I do that?! I hope you all have a chance to get to Oregon and the Fruit Loop, I am already thinking about how I am going to talk Kev into coming with me next time. 

p.s. the flowers are so much cheaper in Oregon, not only at the Fruit Loop but in the grocery store, I nearly fainted when I saw all the flowers in New Seasons Market, I wanted to buy up the whole store just because they where priced so well.  I spent nearly $20 on sunflowers in Boston right before I left, and they had twice as many for $9.99, WHAT! We would be rich if I could spend $20 on enough flower for a month! (OK end rant! Just an FYI)
