Some film from earlier this spring, when the camellias were blooming in Forest Park. There are a few paths that are completely lined with these blooms, basically the best type of thing. Being surrounded by flowers is one of my most favorite things. I’m not an expert, not even close, but flowers definitely give me major feelings, ESPECIALLY when they are decorating a forest. Nothing could be better.
This is my beautiful friend Marika, who makes the jewelry line Ay Marieke. The first day that I met her we were working on a photoshoot, and the whole day she was adorned with jewels and ornate crowns, for the sole purpose of lounging on crazy textiles and velvet sofas in the middle of the forest. It made sense, this girl is fancy. She’s infinitely creative and funny, and I love it when she gets bossy after a drink or two. Plus, she’s one of the only people I know that wants to talk with me about Pretty Little Liars, haha. I have more photos from this day to share that feature her spoiled baby cat Arthur, but we all agreed that he deserves his very own post.

This month, the Clever Nettle shop on Refinery29 has been updated all in one go, so all of June’s new arrivals are ready to shop! Went a bit sporty on the vibe this time, I’m super into it! Heading out today to do some thrifting for next month’s collection, and I have been frequently adding pieces to the vintage shop on etsy as well so don’t miss those items!

Stoked to announce the Drew Leather Clutch, made with a special floral print leather that is exclusive to Summerland! I love how it’s a bit retro, reminds me of cute old wallpaper and reminded Megan of 90′s Drew Barrymore and her iconic daisy-wearing era. The daisies are popping off here in Portland (along with one billion other flowers) and you can really feel summer in the air. It’s hard to believe in it, because sometimes we get dissed by nature and the rain returns before Official Summer, but for now I’m enjoying it! Going to Sauvie Island today with some ladies for a picnic. Let’s finish this post with a little photographic ode to 90′s Drew:
This ANN-YA tropical floral print leather is easily my new summer favorite! It is now available in three styles, the classic pouch, the change pouch, and a new zippered design, the oblong pouch! I hope this summery floral print will inspire trips to the beach (or around here, the river) wearing huge sunglasses and neon lipsticks.
Don’t let Caturday slip through your fingertips! Pet a cat today!

Warby Parker Class Trip has arrived in Portland! The eyewear company is traveling the country in a remodeled school bus, fully outfitted with a mini glasses shop that’s open to the public. They’ll be here until June 9th, and you can find the bus at NW 10th & Glisan. Megan and I stopped in to their party after the final Mercury fashion show, it was crazy packed and admittedly we didn’t stay long since we had dinner date plans and wanted to chill out a little more. We went to one of our favorite restaurants and the site of our first lady date, Navarre. A couple days later on a quiet rainy morning, I went with Hailey to check out all the glasses. She let me snap some photos of her while she tried some glasses, lookin’ so cute in blue frames!
I wear contacts usually and have a hard time finding glasses frames that suit me, and it’s cool that they brought along so many options. I have a pair from the 50′s that I really love, but they need new lenses so I rarely wear them. I get kind of overwhelmed by the task of finding frames, because they have to be so perfect if you’re going to wear them right on your face all the time, so I stuck to browsing sunglasses and am super into the Boyd sunglasses (in marbled charcoal, duh, of course I would like that). MARBLE ADDICT.
It’s worth a visit if you’re looking for new glasses! You can also shop online here.
