Tacos and Tassels

In honor of Taco Tuesday, I wanted to highlight my absolute favorite place in Portland for tacos: Por Qué No? This place has the most authentic Mexican food and I honestly can’t get enough of it. I’m not very picky when it comes to Mexican food because I love all the spices and it’s hard to go wrong with it, but nothing compares to the food I had when I visited Cabo 3 years ago. Finding a place in Portland with food to ...

Grilled Margarita and Pesto Chicken Pizzas

One of my favorite parts of Summer? The food. Who doesn’t love a warm Summer night with friends and food? Whether it means sitting on the beach with a couple of cold beers and the evening’s spread laid out on a blanket, or a bunch of people gathered in the backyard for a BBQ, you can’t beat a warm evening with delicious food! My dad, being a dad, has always been an avid griller so about 60% of the food I ate in the summer ...

On My Radar: Prairie Underground

Okay let me just tell you guys about this totally rad brand… I recently discovered Prairie Underground while working at my internship. Adorn Boutiques in Portland carries so many pieces by them and I instantly fell in love! But let me talk about the best part: The brand is totally ethical and sustainable. They use a variety of sustainable fibers, such as organic cotton, hemp, Tencel, and so many others. They also use reactive dye and ...

Summer Sangria

Last November I tried my hand at Sangria for the first time and came up with this simple Holiday Sangria! Traditional Sangria is supposed to be made with red wine but sometimes white wine is a bit more refreshing in the Summertime so I made this one using white moscato. With the addition of lemonade and strawberries, it’s kind of like spiked strawberry lemonade. And who doesn’t enjoy a spiked version of their favorite childhood ...

Post College Thoughts

It’s crazy that it has almost been a year since I started this blog. It’s exciting for me to see how much work I’ve put into it and how much work I plan to continue to pour into it. A month ago I made a promise that this Summer was going to be about focusing on me and my career and this blog is a huge part of that! Along with my blog, I’m also focusing on being more independent and figuring out what I want for myself ...

Shorts & Selvedge

Happy Saturday! With graduation and then jumping straight into my internship, the first couple weeks of my Summer have been kind of hectic as I moved back to Portland and have been getting back into a routine. But I’m finally settled in and have started making some awesome plans for the Summer! Stay tuned for lots of Summer recipes, trends, and some awesome activities, primarily in the Portland area! But today I wanna talk about my ...

I Like Your Style: Savannah

Last weekend one of my best friends flew to Portland all the way from Chicago to visit me for the week! It was a crazy weekend full of food, coffee, and playing tourist around Portland together. I met Savannah over a year ago in Italy where we shared an apartment and a visual merchandising class together and I was instantly inspired by her sense of style! Savannah graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in ...

Graduation, Laryngitis, and What’s Next

Hey everyone! So I don’t have any May favs this month because this last month has been craaaazy! My favorite thing was that one day I had time for a nap so… yeah. I spent the last quarter working on the merchandising team for my school’s annual fashion show and that was mixed with finals and then on Saturday I graduated! I feel like I only just now caught my breath. So here is a quick update on my life: I graduated from ...

The Best Gelato in Florence

Well, the weather is finally getting warmer and all this sunshine is making me crave the rolling hills of Tuscany, Aperol Spritz on the balcony of my Florence apartment, and, most importantly… Gelato! One of the highlights of living in Italy last year was finishing dinner and asking my roommates to walk across the city to our favorite gelato spots. I made it my mission to try as many places as possible during my stay. Before I dive in ...

Red Rocks Canyon

Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? Good? Great? Awesome. I’m taking a break from my heavy load of homework because I wanted to share some pictures from my recent trip to Vegas! Technically I was staying outside of Las Vegas, in a city called Henderson, with my boyfriend and his family. On Saturday his parents had the idea to drive out to Red Rocks. I had always wanted to go so I was 100% on board with this plan! Here are ...
