Friday Favorites // 055 ::

  1. Being a PrAna Influencer means I get a sneaky peek at new styles. Lucky me! The new Cascade top in Gray Indigo is on my fall wishlist. I have a feeling I’m going to own the whole leggings and sweater thing this year. I’m getting older, and I just want to be comfy all the time. PrAna has an incredible selection of recycled and sustainable materials. I absolutely adore this company.
  2. I may have treated myself to both color ways of the new lotus pin from Inner Decay. That was a good mail day.
  3. Vena’s Fizz House is one of my favorite Portland spots, primarily because it’s one of the few adult places I’ve seen with an extensive (and beautiful) non-alcoholic drink menu. On our last visit, I got an orange shrub with house-made chocolate syrup. It was amazing. They have a great cocktail selection, too! Check out their infusion kits.
  4. The new fall collection from SpaRitual, Feminine, is out, with a few good neutrals. Spontanenous is probably my favorite.
  5. I’m a sucker for a classic hoop earring. I like a good mix of silver and gold when it comes to jewelry.
  6. I love these limited edition Chandra slip ons. These shoes are a collaborative effort between Bucketfeet and Piece & Co., a company that provides the fashion industry beautiful hand-crafted fabric ethically made by female artisans around the world.
  7. This underwear set from Thief and Bandit is the cutest. It looks super comfy, too.

Happy Friday, friendos! Have a great weekend!

Hello, Monday! I have to share the newest offering from Ovate with you, because it’s beautiful and is giving me full on “ready for fall on the seacoast” vibes.

It’s July, which inevitably means retailers start showcasing their fall products. I spent the last decade or so in retail-land, so I am used to this and not particularly bothered. It’s also beneficial because as a girl who likes dark clothing  and long sleeves, late summer is a great time to shop. The lace, crochet, and sheer pretty things I love for layering go on sale, and more black goes back on the shelves! Win.

Friday Favorites // 027 ::

  1. Carrie Bilbo’s jewelry designs are beautiful. My favorite is this sterling moth necklace.
  2. I love this moon return address stamp from Native Bear. Now that I have a more permanent home, I feel like this is something I could get for myself.
  3. Tj just bought a bunch of really cool tees from a local company, and I was disappointed when I discovered they don’t carry women’s sizes. I’ve been moping a little and making my own tee wishlist. That list includes this one (and some others) from Friendly Oak. This is one of my all-time favorite shops on etsy!
  4. You may or may not know, but I am definitely a big nerd. In all the typical ways. I’m proud. So. Can we talk about comic books for a quick second? The new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series from Archie Horror is actually really great so far. It’s a darker, horror twist on the original Sabrina character, and even though we’re only three issues in, I am definitely digging it. Lots of fun historical and folkloric references, so far.
  5. I love this simple black cord bracelet by Maslo at Moorea Seal. Perfect every day piece.
  6. These shades are killer.
  7. The UK designer Brit-Stitch is now available in the states exclusively at ModCloth. Brit-Stitch bags come in an array of colors, sizes, and shapes. I like this black one in particular. You can check out all the available designs and learn a little more about the company here.

Okay, okay. I mentioned Ovate only a few short months ago. I know.

Check out these new limited edition pieces from this incredible Montreal designer. These are beautiful, and once again, I am in love.

I still have the two tank tops  I bought when Simka Sol was Bark Decor (Astral Teepee and Wolf Totem, which have both been seen briefly on the blog, on my torso). Sara’s business has grown in leaps and bounds in the last few years, and I will forever be in love with her handmade (right here in New England) pieces. You can purchase Simka Sol on etsy or shop the Spring/Summer collection here.

These are some new favorites. I am obsessed with the “Oracle” print. I’m not sure if you can tell.
