As much as I LOVE having a blog, I never wanted it to come to a chore. I always wanted it to be something I actually WANTED to do. But with being in school and working full time - it's kind of hard to keep up a blog...no matter how happy it makes me feel. Thank you for the people who actually read! I would feel blessed if you decided to remain friends in some other form! Hope to hear from you :)

I went to the Oregon Coast (Pacific City), last weekend with my girlfriend (not actual lesbian…just a girl that happens to be my friend). We packed shorts, tank tops, flip-flops, and all sorts of summer clothing…unfortunately we forgot we live in Oregon. We were stuck inside all weekend! Of course our clothes was too (well non-existent), for the cold weather.
Not all was lost though. We made cookies, drank margaritas, watched movies, and laid around in this super comfy clothing all weekend. Pretending it was winter. Because going to the coast in Oregon – even if its mid August – will always feel a bit like winter.
To our great fortune, The Truth About Cats & Dogs was on TV on Saturday. An adorable film about a radio personality (Janeane Garofalo), and her best friend air head (Uma Thurman). Falling for the same guy with a sexy accent. He thinks they’re the same person (radio personality with the body of Uma Thurman….hahaha yeah right). And so the movie goes.
Aside from the totally 90’s fashion that I ABSOLUTELY love...
the movie also had this amazing song that
can’t, I won’t get over!

I blogged for a while.
Then I stopped.
And Now I’m blogging again. But the Orchid Grey blog is one blog I have never stopped following. Any friends that ask about blogs I follow, I definitely point them to Orchid Grey and into Julie Sharp’s (Orchid Grey blogger), capable little hands. And why am I writing about this beautiful lady today? Well yesterday my sister and I were emailing back in forth (we work for the same company and when we’re not busy – or just bored – we’ll email each other), and this was our quick conversation:
L – I am SO ready for fall fashion, despite the fact I’m not too fashionable!
R - Such Oregonians, I know I’m ready for fall. I always obsess over Orchid Grey’s closet in the fall!
And then I sent her about 100 pictures from the lovely blog. And sent a link telling her to look on it for inspiration. I decided I should share Orchid Grey with all of you! Now, I know that she is an amazing blogger, and has wonderful style YEAR ROUND! But I believe she truly thrives in the fall and winter months. Seriously. Go model for J.Crew. I gush…and then I go everywhere trying to find similar things to wear.
Dreaming of marrying cookies to a sea or hot chocolate. Waking up to complete silence, as snow has blanketed the earth while I slept. Walking Princess in our hazelnut orchards smelling the damp trees. Looking out my windows to see the vineyards changing colors. Oh Oregon, you too, come alive in the fall. Here you are; some of my favorite fall looks by the lovely Julie Sharp!
Who inspires you?

Now, I'm not going to go ALL OUT crazy over Samantha Baker's (Molly Ringwald) wardrobe, the outfits that always stood out to me where Duckie's! He was SUCH. A. BADASS. The Otis Redding impersonation is seriously the way I get when I'm listening to music! The vests. The scrunchie socks. The hat. The glasses. So great. I couldnt get enough of him in this film.

I don’t know about you but I’m all about Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Best on-screen couple. I love them together. But one of my favorite movies (Confession: I watched it 11 times in one week once…yes, I’m aware I have no life), is You’ve Got Mail! First…I love books. Second…I love fall (and that’s when the movie begins). Third…I’ve never been to New York but I’d love to go. And fourth…IT’S TOM HANKS AND MEG RYAN! What’s not to love. I'm always in agony whether Tom and Meg will get together in the end...watch it I know you'll love it! In her last scene Meg Ryan wears the simple outfit to meet her secret “online” friend and I thought the outfit would be simple enough to recreate. So here you are…plus some pictures of this adorable film:
