Statement City

Top: Francesca's Collections; Skirt: Forever 21 (similar savesimilar spend); Necklace: Stella and Dot; Bracelet: Macy's; Shoes: H&M

Guys, this city is agreeing with me! Not only is the apartment all unpacked (if disheveled), but the art is hung on the walls, and we've finally started exploring. Today, we spent most of the hot day inside watching Orange is the New Black, but did venture out to do some much-needed grocery shopping and then strolled along the waterfront and the waterfront garden near our apartment. It's beautiful here! It doesn't hurt that the weather has been so clear and beautiful that we can see Mount Hood from the waterfront, but this city is spectacularly green and clean. I love seeing trees and flowers and little urban gardens all over the built up city - it makes the transition from Tacoma easier.

In the spectacular news vein, I am thrilled to be wearing some new jewelry in this post. The bracelet was an amazing birthday gift from Ben (he has amazing taste) and the necklace was a Stella and Dot giveaway win! I cannot complain about this sparkly statement piece either!
