Coming Up Roses










Pants: Gap (on sale!); Top: Gap (on sale!); Sweater: c/o Aeropostale; Flats: TJ Maxx (old)

It's my brother's last night in Portland and we took some picnic food from Zupan's up to the Rose Garden to eat and play frisbee. It was such a gorgeous, warm evening for it that I am glad we didn't just stay in for snacks.

During my brother's stay, we've been "collaborating" on some pen + watercolor art and I'm loving having my talented brother help me out a bit on doodling and coloring. He's far beyond me in skill level so it's nice to have him draw me outlines and then I get to color them in. It's like having a human coloring book! I am definitely going to be sad to see him go and get back to normal life, but there's a ton going on this week that I need to take care of both at work and in the blog world (Portland Fashion Week events, some shopping to complete, some outfits to share, and on and on and on). For now though, while I enjoy the last few minutes of tonight before bed - hope you're enjoying these pretty, end-of-summer roses.
