Salt & Straw

I think choosing outfits would be a lot easier if I didn't have this blog. Instead of just throwing on whatever is comfortable for an evening stroll with Josh, I spend twenty minutes agonizing over my outfit, trying to find something that is Totally Innovative and Never Seen Before By My Blog Readers. The other evening, though, I got so tired of trying to be creative that I just threw on what I really wanted to wear, which was this.

And on our walk we stopped at a new ice cream shop that opened in our area called Salt & Straw. Oh. My. Goodness. I've never had better ice cream in my life. It was so good I wanted to cry. If you're ever in the Portland area, you really should try it. We shared the sea salt ice cream with caramel ribbons - the salt was, surprisingly, the perfect touch. If I could, I'd eat that flavor every day for the rest of my life.

I took this photo on our walk; lately I've been obsessed with photographing flowers with the evening light shining through them...


  1. I will definitely try that ice cream place next time I'm in Portland. It sounds delish!

    Also, I know what you mean about the blog. I spilled coffee on yesterday's outfit and when I went home to change I agonized over wearing something brand new (to the blog) and photographing a second outfit or wearing something that's already been on the blog and not worrying about it. I went with the latter but it seemed silly to me to have to think about it.

    You look gorgeous though and I love your wedges. I just ordered some colorful ones of my own; I hope they look half as good!

  2. Lovely, colorful outfit as always! I've been looking for a cuff bracelet like it.

    I'm enjoying the sea salt and caramel trend lately, especially in candy. Sooo good!

    1. Sea salt and caramel is officially my new favorite flavor combination - someone made me caramels recently with big chunks of salt in them, and they were the most amazing candy ever.

  3. Those flowers are real?! Holy cow they are gorgeous.
    I know what you mean - sometimes I think if it's not worth photographing then it's a horrible outfit. Stress!! But, I think I'm just going to do a sweatpants post and get over it! Ok - maybe I won't go that far :)

    1. Yes, do a sweatpants post! That would be awesome :)

  4. You're so cute! I know what you mean about putting outfits together, and sometimes the less thought you put in the better the outfit turns out.

    That ice cream sounds pretty magical, I'm bummed I don't live in the area!

    I really like your feather bracelet - adorable! :)

    New follower, look forward to seeing more!

  5. I love your arm cuff - what a cool piece. Those flowers are surreal, too!

  7. Hello Stacey!

    I think that every personal style blogger goes through the same dilemma in the event an outfit is somehow ruined, I usually choose my outfit according to the background that I have in mind so I can totally feel your agony! Love to see another local blogger representing this amazing city!
