Rainy day hues...

Today was the first rainy day that we have had in Portland for a while. Don't sound so surprised - it doesn't rain here nearly as much as everyone thinks! Especially not in the summer. I am completely crazy and love, love, love a rainy Oregon winter. There is no better excuse to saddle up to the bar in a dark and cozy watering hole, or stay at home and curl up on the couch with a good book and a glass of Cabernet? That said, I am definitely not ready to let go of the sun yet - it's only August for Pete's sake! I vow to do the following before the clouds roll in for good.

Romantic picnic for two.
Such a nice way to eat a Sunday lunch!

Saturday morning farmer's market date with my girls!

Wearing all of the fun summer dresses before we have to layer!
Although, cold weather would give me the excuse I need to shop at Poshgirlvintage.com.
The clothes on here are out of control - a bit out of my price range, but seriously splurge-worthy!

Wear flip flops. Need I say more?
What are you going to do with the rest of your summer??


  1. I'm originally from Seattle and also love the rainy winters :) The Pacific Northwest is truly beautiful. I'm actually looking forward to the fall...is that crazy? But saying goodbye to flip flops every day is definitely difficult!

  2. I moved out here from CT almost 10 years ago. I tried to leave once, but just couldn't stay away! Where did you land once you left?
