Pendleton Outlet Grand Opening

My parents have always been big fans of Pendleton blankets and I grew up having them in almost every room of the house. My parents gave me one for my birthday a few years ago, which started my own Pendleton collection. Recently my dad has been downsizing and he gave me two of his blankets, 
I am so excited about those! 

I know it's not a good time to be thinking about wool blankets, it's SO hot out! But I want to share with you that the new Pendleton Outlet is having a Grand Opening this weekend {July 17 - 20} at the Columbia Gorge Premium Outlets {in Troutdale}. I won't be there this weekend because of my big work event but I am definitely sending a proxy. They will have gifts with purchase {while supplies last, of course}, special discounts, you can enter to win a gift card or a blanket and more. 
The store will have men's, women's and home goods at up to 70% off retail price! 

I am in the market for some Pendleton towels, they look so amazing. Perfect for summer!

heat wave

Old Navy tank, Asos skirt, Madewell Kensington satchel, Target sandals

I'm personally loving this hot weather. Sometimes I think we should move somewhere warm but then I just can't imagine not living in Oregon. This warm weather reminds me of our honeymoon {part 1, part 2, part 3}, and it was at least 15 degrees warmer there! I much prefer to be warm than cold.

a life update

Happy Wednesday!
This week doesn't seem any less busy than the last few weeks. It's that time of year! 
This is the busiest time of year at my job, we have our biggest event/fundraiser next week. 
It's going to be great but it's also bittersweet because it's the last event I'll work at my current job.
Because I accepted a new job!

Without going into too much detail, it's transition time for me. I'll be at another local non-profit doing the same type of work I've been doing, helping to organize the fundraising events. I've loved my job the last few years and I am looking forward to the next chapter. Jeff will also be starting a new job in the fall, he will be a 5th grade teacher! We've had a few bumps in the road this past year and I really feel like we are on an upswing and we are starting to live the life we are supposed to live. I am never a fan of transitions but I am looking forward to this one for both of us. I'll be starting my new job in August, which means things might be slower here again. I'll always keep my instagram up to date though. 

Thank you to all our friends and family that have been so supportive and excited for both of us!

neon pleats

Remember when I mentioned that I'm in love with this dress and my best friends have it in other colors and that I would be borrowing those? I wasn't kidding. Best Friend from Seattle came down for the #MillerGrayWedding on Thursday, she wore it to that wedding and then I promptly borrowed it for a wedding on Saturday. The weather's been so warm, this was a perfect summer evening dress.
Thanks BFF!

I've been a little busy lately, which means radio silence here. 
Well, one of my best friends got married last week! 
I love weddings, I loved being a part of their wedding, they are amazing, everything was beautiful, everyone looked amazing, it was SO fun! These are some snaps {sorry not sorry for the overload of photos} from the rehearsal dinner and wedding. I'm looking forward to seeing the professional photos!

Congratulations to Eric & Justine!

the short sleeve

Happy Tuesday! 
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I bought this shirt for Jeff and I mentioned that I'd be stealing it immediately. Well, I let him wear it once before taking it.
And I picked up these blue heels, my obsession with blue continues!
I wore some combination of these items all weekend, so easy and comfortable.

cobalt love

Leith t-shirt from Savvy Nordstrom, Gap skirt (old), Zara heels, American Apparel clutch, Target necklace, Urban Outfitters aviator sunglasses

I've slowly been adding color back into my daily wardrobe. Mostly cobalt blue so far. 
I know the color of the year is Radiant Orchid but I think the real color of the year is blue. 
Light blue, cobalt, all the blue. 
I picked up a pair of cobalt heels {affordable pair, dream pair} and I just ordered this dress, 
more is more right?

ps. this skirt is one of those pieces of clothing that I've had for years and I'm so glad I never got rid of it.
