“Smile. Just SMILE!” I thought-screamed at myself while going through these outfit photos the other night. If it seems like I’m embarrassed to show my face, well, that’s because I am. I’ve got a pretty serious case of dead-behind-the-eyes in the un-cropped versions, which accurately reflects my feelings about taking outfit photos in the rain because, oh yes, the weather has officially taken a turn for the Pacific Northwest, meaning nasty and grey until about mid-June, if you can believe that. (I know. I know. Why do I live here? Oh yeah. The food.)

But things are looking up! This weekend, I am headed to the beach with my girlfriends and their babies (yup, I’m the childless one of the bunch) for what I hope will be some serious lazing around indoors with a few freezing – but picturesque – walks thrown in for good measure. I should clarify for you non-Oregonians that Oregon beaches are less this and more this. Beautiful, but cold.

What are you guys up to this weekend? Tell me your plans! Unless they involve warmth and/or sunshine, in which case, keep it to yourself.

    Love, love, love your leather jacket! I’ve been dying for a draped jacket like that. (I have a whole blog post about it) and I even bid on one on ebay last night. But I lost the bidding war haha. Also obsessed with your booties. This is pretty much my ideal outfit 🙂

      Thanks Sarah! This jacket was the find of the century – about 40% off on ShopBop a couple of years ago. I stalked it for what felt like months. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
