Cate The Great x Tassles

Fall is by far one of my favorite seasons (not like there's too many to choose from!). BUT, I love transitioning my wardrobe and restocking my closet with cozy pieces. Most of all, I LOVE fall/winter footwear. This season, for SOREL, is no exception. I got this pair of Cate the Great Wedge Boots mid summer and started counting down the days until I could wear them. This day, I was a bit premature in my wardrobe decisions and had to bear the heat on a 90* day in Portland. Whatever- my footwear was on point, right? Either way, this boot is the perfect transition piece that'll carry you from fall into winter.

I can't say enough about how much I was not sold on this Kendra Scott necklace until it showed up on my doorstep inside my Rocks Box box. I'd seen a lot of other ladies donning it on Instagram and to be honest, didn't like it. Good thing I got to give it a go because I absolutely fell in love. It's definitely I piece I wouldn't buy on my own but I'm glad my Rocks Box stylist was thoughtful enough to send it over.

Weekend In Photos: Turning 30

Ho-lee-crap. I cannot believe I am 30 years old! My parents came in from Texas for the weekend and we had a great time wandering around Portland, eating and drinking. Fall (my favorite season) has arrived in Portland and I enjoyed showing my parents the changing colors, visiting a pumpkin patch, and getting lost in a corn maize. See below for links to many of the places we visited.

Friday night, heading out to pick up goodies for a charcuterie board for my parents arrival.

Morning coffee with my dad.

Stroll around the waterfront.

Admiring and smelling every.single.rose in the International Rose Test Garden.

Collage on Division. A Washi Tape dream!

Coffee + soda + grapefruit juice at Dapper and Wise? Still trying to decide if I liked it.

Corn Maize on Sauvie Island. Fun for 15 minutes then...WHERE IS THE EXIT?!

Love me some cute lil pumpkins.

Birthday breakfast at 23 Hoyt.

Cheers to day drinking!

Anna Mara flowers on Grand Ave.

Getting artsy amongst the random treasures inside Rejuvenation.

We went into Saint Cupcake for one and left with a dozen.

'Big Top' was my favorite.

Enjoying fall after dropping my parents off to fly back home.

Weekend In Photos | Labor Day

Three words: three day weekend. It was much needed but much too short. The weather was amazing- rainy, sunny, rainbows, cool, and fall-like. Ryan and I went bowling and finally had time (not enough!) to relax. I even had my first bloody mary of the season. Yum.

SOREL 1964 Wedge x Rocks Box

If there's one thing I love more than a pair of SOREL footwear, it's a pair of SOREL footwear with a camo outsole. Even though I have this pair of 1964 Wedges in two colors already, I saw this pair during the Nordstrom Sale and had to have them. Yeah-I know I have a problem-32 pairs of SOREL problems to be exact. (Does that mean I have 64 individual problems?!) This pair was the perfect colorful addition for my fall wardrobe. The best part? They come with an extra pair of solid color laces in case you aren't feeling the friendship-y pattern of the other.

I've recently became a Rocks Box member and I LOVE IT. Beside the fact that you get to look forward to the mail man coming once a month, you get 3 pieces of jewelry delivered right to your door! If you decide you want to keep them- keep 'em! If you decide you're not really feeling a piece, send it back--free of charge.

Want your own free month of Rocks Box? Go to and enter the code toribff46 at sign up- simple as that! You can then take a style survey, add pieces to your Wish List, and enjoy three hand selected items, sent right to your doorstep!

The code above is only good for the first three people to sign up! Comment below if you missed the sign up and would still like a code ;)

Ten Toes Paddle Boards x Trillium Lake

This week I'd been fighting off some sort of sickness and finally had to give in on Friday and take a day off from work to rest. I literally did not move from the couch all day and Ryan had to drag me out (for my own good) on Saturday for brunch. By the time Sunday rolled around, sure enough, Ryan had gotten sick too. However- we'd promised Ryan's mom some time on the water and couldn't go back on our word so we all hit Trillium Lake for an hour or so to test out her new kayaks and my new Ten Toes Paddle Board.

I started paddle boarding when I lived in Austin, on Lady Bird Lake. Since then, I've loved paddle boarding, but never owned my own board. Ten Toes sent me The Weeekender and couple weeks ago and I finally got to test the waters.

I've never paddled on an inflatable board, but I'm sold! I will admit, there wasn't much standing up this time around (because I still felt like I'd been hit by a bus and had a head full of snot), but it was fun. Tip: If you're not comfortable standing all the way up on you board, try paddling from a mid-kneeling position. This won't work your core as much as standing up, but your quads will be screaming! 

I was surprised how easy The Weekender was to assemble:

1. Unroll the paddle board.
2. Pump to about 16 PSI (+/-225 pumps)
3. Attach fins.
4. Assemble paddle.
5. Get in the water!

There was a bit of worry at first that because the board was inflatable, it wouldn't be as stable, but it was totally fine! Silly as it may sound, but the best part of this board is the bungee cord at the front. It was a lifesaver that held my flip-flops and kept my GoPro from falling the water when I wasn't using it.

Can you tell we both need Mucinex and a nap?!

Disassembly of the board is just the opposite- remove the fins, deflate, throw in the car! I recommend either fully drying the board off once you get home or letting it dry (unrolled) in your garage overnight before rolling up and putting away. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below!

Weekend In Photos

I haven't posted a 'Weekend In Photos' post in so long! This weekend was pretty relaxing. It rained Saturday and Sunday so Ryan and I were not focused on anything but chilling out.

Sunset from our balcony on Friday night. #nofilter

On Friday, we joined forces with a few other friends who live on our side of town for an "Apartment Crawl." The theme was margaritas, and everyone had to make a different type. We started at our place and worked our way up and around NW Portland drinking blended margaritas, margarita popsicles, rosé margaritas, and finally cadillac margaritas. Needless to say, I stopped after the popsicle and was good to go for the rest of the evening.

Saturday was SO foggy and rainy that Ryan and I slept in SUPER late and enjoyed the rest. The rest of the day was spent walking around downtown with the usual Starbucks check-in, shoefie shot of a new pair of SOREL rain boots, followed up with Cartel Land at the theater.

Shop the SOREL Out N About Leather Boot here and here.

Have you heard about adult coloring books?! I'm not talking about coloring drawn out nudes (insert monkey face emoji). There are actually coloring books for adults that promote stress relief aka art therapy. I was one of those kids who spend HOURS coloring. Talk to my mom and she'll tell you I won every single coloring contest I entered. I stopped into Powell's Books an grabbed on along with a package of glitter fruit scented gel pens (DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT?!

I also discovered the Koi Fusion truck that's right down the street from us. Ryan and I actually ate there again this evening because it was SO good. 

Today was a super crazy day at work and it was nice to come home to this little surprise:

More SOREL boots! I already have this pair of the 1964 Premium Wedges in Purple Dahlia and Shale. However, when I saw this collection through Nordstrom, I could. not. resist. How cute are the camo soles?!
