Tonight was a lovely ending to what started as a stressful day. When my happy hour plans fell through, I quickly filled that hole in my exceedingly busy social calendar for dinner and a movie with my boyfriend and best friend. The temperatures cooled quite a bit and settled into the mid-seventies, the temperature that allows you to comfortably wear pretty much anything. After my rough morning I had every intention of wearing something frilly so I’m not quite sure where this outfit came from! Maybe it was the thought of the always freezing movie theater or maybe I wore pants just because I could now that Portland’s first heat wave of the summer has ended. Once I decided on these pants, I immediately reached for this tank, which I bought on a recent trip to Forever 21. As evident in this last week’s posts, I also can’t get enough black and white, and the print perfectly matches the vibe of cargo pants. Never one to skip a pop of color, I grabbed my poppy colored bag, which I love with the olive pants.

It was a surprise to me when Erin agreed to a few pictures. I’ve tried to coerce her many times in the past but with no success…nothing even close to success. But, with a sandal and sock combo as cute as this one, who wouldn’t want to show off a bit? Seriously, how adorable are those pointelle socks? Erin kept the rest of the look just as soft as her sweet socks with a simple oatmeal tank, a flirty chambray skirt, and a lucite necklace. A preppy pink and green duck print bag finished off her polished but youthful look. No one appreciates preppy details like Erin, and I know how happy this bag makes her, which is exactly why I convinced her to buy the middle of winter.

I know I’ve mentioned my genuine dislike of photos before I started this blog, but it still shocks me when I reach into my purse and grab a camera. When did I start carrying a camera? How did this happen? I kind of jumped into blogging without thinking about it too much because if I did I probably wouldn’t have done it and I’ve tried to ignore the changes it has discreetly brought on. Then there is a night like this one, when I am so happy that I had a camera to snap a few pictures of night spent with two of my favorite people in Portland (one of whom may or may not be coming to Mexico in my suitcase).

2. We are so cute. ;)

3. I will happily stow away in a suitcase.

Well aren't you two stylish peas in a pod! I love the idea of socks and heels (especially open toed shoes), because I hate feet (mine, yours, basically everyone's) and so the world of open toed shoes is a bit foreign to me. I'm looking to give this look a shot in the near future.
