In case you are still shopping for me or someone like me, here is my holiday wish list.

Merry Christmas!

What have you been pinning lately? Here are some of my latest & greatest.

A Goyard bag & polka dot wallpaper & blue office are some of my recent favorites.

For the love of Jeffrey!

Recent trips to Nordstrom and afternoons on Pinterest have affirmed my love for Jeffrey Campbell. His flats for fall are fun and feisty- I have decided to showcase my top faves today on Tumblr. The Lion and Bengal flats might show up in my closet later this season.

Happy shoe shopping! 

I struck gold today on the internet. Fashion gold. I found these beautiful Mara Hoffman designs after seeing the two piece bather posted to Pinterest. My affinity for Mexican art is no secret. I even created some inspired drawings earlier this month for my living room- see here.

After sharing the dress with my BFF she asked if she should order one now and save it for maid of honor duties, at which I lol’d but told her to go ahead and do so- just stay the same size for a few years.

I found many more beautiful designs on her website, don’t you love them all? I can’t decide which piece to get or how to justify it, but I have to act quick!

Very much looking forward to shopping The Shops at Target. Wish me luck in collecting my favorites. My top shop is shaping up to be: The Webster from Miami.

Today I bought this purse and then 8 hours later it has been stolen, along with its contents :(

It was a great find at the Rack this afternoon and I was able to use both a Nordstrom gift card and one of my Nordstrom notes to cover the purchase. I had been coveting a bright colored cross body forever and this was the perfect purchase. If anyone sees it on the streets of Portland, please call me! Oh wait, my iPhone was stolen too. OK I am going to bed now to dream of soft green leather handbags & the happy return of my raybans, car/house keys & other valuables.

But really, I am fine and no one was harmed in this situation. It is just an unnaturally colored leather sack full of stuff.

shorts pls!

I just learned that Anthro is having a sale starting tomorrow through Saturday. 50% off all sweaters, jackets and outerwear. LOVE! How exciting. If there is anything I adore about Anthro it has to be their sweaters, they always look extremely cozy and wonderfully whimsical and are usually at least a couple hundred dollars.I will definitely be picking out a sweater or two for myself and maybe even snag a couple for the holidays! Here are a few favorites to get you started, happy holidays!

Paradoxical Sweater $64 after discount

Well Spotted Blazer $99 after discount

Penobscot Poncho $174 after discount

I am back to work today after over a week off & decided to put a little purr in my step with these new flats I picked up last month. I have been wanting and searching for a pair of leopard flats and these ones were right on the money. I look forward to wearing them year round, starting today in our cold 29 degree weather.

Check them out here.

I sure have, these are some recent favorites.

find me on pinterest.

I made it! I am finally on Pinterest! Just yesterday I responded to the invite I got back in February and have been happily pinning ever since! I think this is my new place to shop on the internet, so far so good.

Check me out and follow me & I’ll follow you too.

Weather has turned to the rainy and windy here in p-town… Just 4 days ago it was 90 degrees and I was sitting by a pool. But this weather does have its upside, shopping for fall footwear. The Frye ‘Lucy’ Boot is just what I am after!

A good start on some fall basics via thatkindofwoman. I can spot a few I already have and a few I wish to add. But sadly it feels like summer has just begun, the summer weather has finally arrived and it better stay through september- OR ELSE!
