dress season.

Hello friends!

With spring quickly creeping up on us, we are finally experiencing all the blooms and…allergies! ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is almost around the corner, but with this season brings so many occasions (whether it be a wedding, prom, formal, etc.. the list goes on and on) to put on that fancy schmancy dress and feel like a Disney princess (Did I mention that Belle was always my favorite? I have yet to see the new movie though).

I don’t know about you, but Iย always seem to procrastinate ’til the last minute and go crazy trying to find a dress the week before a big occasion.

I was sent a few dresses fromย Ever Prettyย to try and omg (it is acceptable to talk in acronyms on a blog?).. I fell madly in love!

The prices are all very affordable (all under $100), and they fit so nicely! It’s safe to say..details are definitely on point with these.

Yes, I felt like Cinderella in this dress. It must have been that perfect-pastel-royal shade of blue.

I also felt like I embodied “Spring” in the two pieces. The ironic thing? This is the first year in like 5 years that I do not have a wedding to go to! Someone find me an event to wear these to..and quick!

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be over here playing dress-up by my lonesome… I mean how could you resist?

Must-Eats & Most Instagrammable Places in Portland!

Hello friends,

Portland has been a place I had heard so much about and knew I needed to experience the culture and all that good foodย for myself. It also seems to be the spot that all the foodies/instagrammers are flocking to.


If you’re looking for a good list of places to go, look no further! Here are the places that I had a chance to go to and recommend:

Coffee:

  • Good Coffee

Hint: go during the day. Think.. perfect lighting. So. Much. Aesthetic.

  • ย Case Study Coffee

Located in the heart of downtown. I loved the feel inside and my mocha was sooo good.


Desserts
:

  • Blue Star Donuts

The flavors are so interesting but it works in their favor! ย I got the passion fruit with cayenne pepper and cocoa nibs.. omg. Spicy, sweet, and perfection! There’s also a location at the airport if you run out of time.


  • Salt and Straw

Get the flight. You won’t regret it. Because.. one flavor isn’t enough ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wiz Bang Bar

Salt and Straw’s soft serve baby inside of Pine Street Market (hip cafeteria paradise). The shell is magical.

Food:

  • Grassa

Literally the best Italian food ever. Hand-made pasta is SO GOOD!

  • Pine State Biscuits

Because apple butter. YUMMM. I got the Chatsfield and it was so so so good. Seriously, the bacon was the best I ever had.

Scenery:

  • Multnomah Falls and the Columbia Gorge

Because.. #PNW. I couldn’t stop being in awe of how different it was from the nature of California. So much green. Am I outdoorsy yet? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Departure Bar

That view though. I would definitely recommend coming on the weekend as they don’t normally open up the balcony during the week.

Ready for my next trip already…

Xoxo,
