Hope you are all having a wonderful week! We are having an extended Summer here in the PNW, the weather has been sun, sun, and more sun. It finally cooled off a little bit here today and is beginning to feel a bit more like Fall. Although I think we are going to be back up to 70 degrees for the rest of the week!

This past weekend Michael and I decided we were overdue for a little trip just the 2 of us, so we headed down to Portland Saturday morning. Such a beautiful drive with the sun shining and the leaves beginning to turn.

After checking into our hotel downtown, we headed for lunch at a cute little wine bar. Love a good wine lunch : )

After lunch we did a little shopping and then headed to happy hour at Portland City Grill to meet up with a few of our friends that live in Portland. So much fun and what a view!

Jeans – Hudson, Blouse – NY&Co, Scarf – H&M (similar at Target), and you can’t see, but I’m wearing these Loft mustard suede pumps

After happy hour we headed back to the hotel to get cleaned up to go to dinner.

Here is the only full outfit picture I got.

Jeans – J Brand, Blouse – Loft (similar here and here), Shoes – Max Studio (similar from Target)



We headed to dinner at Urban Farmer which was absolutely amazing!

We started our meal with a delicious selection of gourmet cheeses


Then we moved onto the main course, I had a grass fed filet, while Michael had the New York Strip sampler served along with some amazing green beans and a potato tart. So tasty!


Here we are very full…

After a cocktail at the rooftop bar we headed back to the hotel for a good night’s sleep!

We will just call this the Portland Food Tour because the next morning we were ready to eat again!

Off we went for brunch to a place my friend Leslie recommended called Tasty ‘n Sons. We had about an hour wait so enjoyed our coffee out in the sunshine while we walked around the neighborhood and played with the timer on the camera : )

Jeans – Hudson, Blouse – Old Navy, Jacket – WHBM, Scarf – Italy, Shoes – Nine West, Bag – Coach




Brunch was worth the wait – we enjoyed a delicious BBQ chicken hash along with a tomato and roasted red pepper stew with baked eggs.


Hope you enjoyed the Portland Food Tour : )
