Sunday at the Boulangerie + $620 Giveaway

Sweatshirt, top, jeans: Gap; Flats: Nine West; Purse: c/o Emilie M. Handbags

To close the long weekend, Ben and I spent the rainy afternoon on NW 23rd street - a street in Portland packed with shops, restaurants, and specialty stores. We made a quick visit to Bull Run Distillery to taste rum, vodka, aquavit, and bourbon, and Lompoc's northwest tavern to try their seasonal brews. We picked up some fun treats from Saint Honore french boulangerie including a giant parisian loaf that was delicious and a creme brulee pastry. I picked up this new super-soft crew neck sweatshirt from Gap on Black Friday and am in love. I haven't taken it off in days as it's the perfect compliment to any outfit and so warm. I'd highly recommend getting it (it's on sale) if you're in need of a simple sweatshirt.

We're both dreading the return to work and school, but counting down the days until Christmas. We only have three weekends between us and the holiday (crazy!) and are prepping for a Christmas party next weekend that should be a blast. Hope you all had a fantastic week! Make sure to enter the awesome giveaway I'm co-hosting below! $600 in PayPal cash or VISA? Can't say no to that.
