Being a Blogger in Eugene, Oregon

Being a blogger in Eugene, Oregon is NOT ideal. The summers are very beautiful, but my goodness it is SO cloudy and rainy and foggy during the fall/winter. Which makes picture taking VERY hard. On top of that, I'm at my office working full time, so I always miss the sun if it DOES decide to peek out (I find myself staring outside when the sun shines through the clouds... haha). So I'm sorry my photo location has been the same for the past while. I come home for lunch and take photos sometimes, so I don't have time to venture out very far from our apartment complex ;)

I'm especially excited about today's post because it truly caters to the environment around me-- A rain jacket and wellies combo! This bright and happy green rain jacket + rain boots from Joules make a perfect outfit for the Oregon weather. It seriously rains out of nowhere here (and often!) so it's important to be prepared :-) They also have the rain jacket in yellow, navy, and coral. I love the striped lining on the inside.

I decided to wear the bright green jacket with this delicately beautiful sweater from Gypsy Threads. Gypsy Threads is temporarily closing their online shop, so EVERYTHING is on sale, 40-75% off! But don't hesitate, things are going FAST, so take advantage while you can! Scoot yourselves over to their site and find something for you to add to your closet.

What Else is Neu(tral)?

No, really though... a gray, black, and tan outfit. I can't stay away from them neutral tones! Black is the new black, and I'm loving it. What makes an outfit like this interesting is the mixing of different textures. The knit sweater and faux leather leggings combines casual with dressy-- the perfect balance :-)

So sorry to be short on words-- it's currently 11pm Wednesday night (so yesterday) as I'm writing this, and I'm trying to force my eyes to stay open to write something interesting, but it's not happenin'. HAHA. Thanks for stopping by anyways, you guys are the best!!

Lady in Ivoire: Boho Chic

The combination of light wash denim & cream/white makes my heart swoon. I LOVE the combination! While this lace Anthropologie dress is quite dressy, I love being able to dress it down so I don't feel to overdressed when I wear it! :) Adding a casual denim jacket, my favorite chunky heeled booties, and wearing my hair in a side braid help this dress to have a casual vibe to it.

Speaking of hair, I feel like my hair stopped growing for a while. But lately it seems to be growing again! I am so happy. I've been trying to grow my hair out for a while so this is good. Although, my split ends are increasing so I may need to get a trim soon........ 

While this dress is sold out, you can check out eBay if you're interested!
