We recently had some work done to our main living space, and since have had to move some furniture around to accommodate. Of course with every change brings new inspiration, so thought I would share some of my recent thoughts for our bedroom and living space. Collecting these photos was both fun, and very inspiring, hope you enjoy!

Coveting Theory

I used to think of a business suit at the mention of a white button down, I think it’s my age or maybe that they are becoming a little cooler, but now I think of denim, pencil skirts, chic flats and short boots paired with slouchy shorts. There is something so classic about a clean, white button down, I would love to snatch up this boyfriend style Theory blouse immediately.

Cocktails l TWELFTH AVENUE {Cocktail stop at Bon Appétit’s Mercantile tent. Bartenders served up Grapefruit Mimosas, Gin Fizz and Pimm’s Cup cocktails, drink up!}
Parish Cinnamon Rolls l TWELFTH AVENUE {These warm, gooey cinnamon rolls were my first bite at Feast’s Tillamook Brunch on Sunday. Topped with bacon crumble they were the perfect combination of sweet and savory.}
Bloody Mary l TWELFTH AVENUE {Could you drool over this bloody mary bar? I don’t even like bloody mary’s, and this stop was my favorite part. Equipped with bacon, salami, radish, green olives and mozzarella balls. Pickled green beans, asparagus and jalapenos, and gobs and gobs of hot sauce. I was in heaven with a full plate.}
Feast Bags l TWELFTH AVENUE {Back for the second year, this guy was working the press, printing personalized Feast bags. Options for cherry red, tangerine orange or a sunny yellow. I went with yellow, the perfect grocery bag.}
Austin Meat l TWELFTH AVENUE {Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbeque from Austin, Texas sliced up what looked to be very juicy, flavorful brisket. Topped with Haas avocado, their breakfast taco was a huge hit!}
Eggslut l TWELFTH AVENUE {The guys from LA’s Eggslut were working it all morning with their bacon fried rice, kimchi puree and poached egg packaged in a neat, little aluminum tin. Perfect for shaking to get the ultimate bite. I reconsidered being a vegetarian watching people devour their rice bowls.}
Dave's Killer l TWELFTH AVENUE {Dave’s Killer Bread joined the party with simple toasts, pesto and heirloom tomato. Bon Appétit!}
Pine State Biscuits l TWELFTH AVENUE {Pine State Biscuits served up a classic, buttermilk fried chicken and cheddar smashed between two creamy buttermilk biscuits. People were so happy while waiting to get their fried chicken sandwich, they were offering me their spot in line while I took this photo from the front.}
Mother l TWELFTH AVENUE{And the mother of all mother’s, Lisa Schroeder of Mother’s Bistro spooning gravy for the next up!}

I was giddy all morning long, thank you Bon Appétit and Feast Portland for hosting this most spectacular event. See you next year!

fall simplicity

Top: Saint James for J.Crew. Skort (on crazy sale!): Zara. Sneakers: Vince. Sunnies: Ray Ban.

I’m not sure what I love more, this Saint James slouchy tee or the fact that I wore a skort mid-September with leaves on the ground. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, the weather in Portland is beautiful right now. There’s no where else I’d rather be.

feast style

TestSunnies: Sunday Somewhere. Clutch: A.P.C. Shirt: J.Crew. Denim: Acne Studios. Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors.

What’s a food festival without a little personal style? Inspired by NYFW street style, I plan to keep it casually chic at Feast Portland this weekend with a slouchy button down, chunky heels and a clutch with pop.

What event are you headed to? Feast Portland has so much to offer with main events, classes, tasting panels and dinner series. It’s almost overwhelming the amount of breweries, chefs, distilleries and artisans in attendance. Tickets still for sale include, Thursday’s Widmer Brothers Brewing Sandwich Invitational, Friday’s Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting, Chardonnay is for Lovers Tasting Panel, A Walk on the Sour Side Tasting Panel and Negroni O’Clock Tasting Panel. More main events, tasting panels and a dinner series on Saturday with Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting, Beans and Booze Tasting Panel and Chris Cosentino and Kyo Koo at Bluehour.

Hope to see you there!
