Ahhh I'm obsessed! This dress is a party of a lot of the things I love- peter pan collars, coral, & sparklies! It also happens to be very special to me since it was gifted by my Tyler as a birthday present! Too sweet. I've paired with the beauuutiful RACHEL COMEY'S (scroll for story).

Kits guest stars!

Just look at that collar!

Okay so the story! These are infamously worn by the fanciest & fancay-est Fancy Treehouse (who I have also dubbed as Queen of Comeys!). I've always admired them but knew there was NO WAY I'd ever be able to afford them. Then one day, my greatest girl, Jess found them for the most amaazzzing price ever! I, of course, could not resist. As a first time Comey owner, I have to say they are made of wonderful quality & are actually really comfortable for their height. Win win win!

Summer... sweater dress?

Not sure if this errands outfit even qualifies for an outfit post, but I'm letting it happen anyway! I got this cozy striped sweater dress from H&M recently for 50% off(fall/winter clearance) thinking I could just save it for fall. Luckily, Portland summers resemble October, so I suppose it worked out. I especially appreciate the gold buttons on the shoulders!

Ps, I plan to start using my dslr eventually, thanks for bearing with my mehh digital camera pics!

Blue & Orange

I've been 23 for two days now! Old and moldy. I don't like it. Anyway, let's talk about blue & orange. Remember Christina Aguilera via Genie in a Bottle? Orange & blue at its best. Also, I'm pretty much obsessed with Lauren Conrad dresses at Kohls. If you're patient enough you can get them on sale for around $20-30! I have my eye on this guy next..

sailor in a sweater

Welp.. back to sweaters, cardigans, & boots. That was predictable! This little nautical top is for XXI. I love the collar & how it looks like the really affordable top version of this dress by Boutique by Jaeger. I actually took an XXI detox for a few months,and OMG SO IN LOVE WITH XXI RIGHT NOW. (proof)

lemon & bows

WOAH! No tights or cardigan? It was a treat to get a day that actually feels like summer today in Portland. I just picked up this dress yesterday, and it's kinda funny since I wasn't planning on getting it at all! I just couldn't resist since it was on sale + I love the color. I paired it with my Seychelles bow flats!

ALSO, this dear has been living in my front yard for the past 2 days! Maybe it's waiting for its momma? It's so cute and often just sits in the same spot. What a cutie.
