Weekend trip to Portland

Madewell knit
Helmut Lang tank top (similar)
Madewell skirt (similar)
CĂ©line sunglasses
Gap jelly sandals (similar)
Forever 21 necklace (similar)

I like a good knit skirt because it layers well with slouchy tops for a casual chic look that can be dressed down with sandals or up with heels. It's versatile and the cotton makes it not look as high maintenance as bandage skirts. I wore this outfit when we drove down to Portland this past weekend for a mini-vacation. The first photo is while I was hungrily waiting to eat at Pok Pok (food post to come, and I'm on my phone probably checking in on Foursquare), and the rest are taken while we leisurely walked off our lunch by the waterfront. Lots more trip photos soon.

  11. Love the close-up shot of your necklace against the knit. My eyes didn't know whether to focus on the neon necklace or the laser cut outs!
