portland diary: part 1

we originally planned our trip to portland because the boyf's brother was showing some work in an art show.  the show ended up getting pushed back but the idea of a mini holiday sounded too good so we headed south anyway.  luckily for me the weather gods are usually good to me when i go on vaca.  it was in the 70s and 80s when i was in new york last october and snowed less than a week later.  hows that for some luck.  anyway i couldn't have asked for nicer weather.  visited a few of our fav local haunts and discovered some new ones as well.  i had my heart set on eating at pok pok but with a two hour wait it didn't happen.  we ended up at bamboo instead.  IMO don't believe the hype its overpriced and bland.  but on the upside the bro took us to biwa and that was delightful.

coat ~ asos
sweater ~ j. crew
shirt ~ ralph lauren
shorts ~ ae {similar}
brogues ~ halogen
belt ~ gap
tights ~ drugstore 
sunnies ~ karen walker
bag ~ kate spade

on a side note, i've had these brogues for a few months now.  they began creasing a little where the foot bends but i expected that from patent leather but i wore them on a super rainy day and they start cracking like crazy.  nordstrom won't let you update a review or add to it once its been posted, so beware!  these babies aren't good for a real rainy day.

part two to come in a few days.
