PHOTOS: Flowers from my garden this year. I’m in love with growing flowers after years of having a not so green thumb. I post a lot of pics about it at @honeykennedy on Instagram.

Luisa et la Luna

I love this sweet collection of designs from Luisa et la Luna currently at Founders & Followers! It’s no wonder that these pieces are so perfectly represented at F&F, Luisa et la Luna designer, Alicia Rodriguez, is actually the co-founder and creative director of the beautiful shop. She also previously spent a few years as Head Apparel Designer at Rebecca Minkoff, so it’s wonderful to see her launch her own lovely collection. My favorites are the Paloma Dress, the Martina Dress, the Aura Dress, the Paz Dress, the Marina Top, the white Lucia Jumpsuit (black too!) and the Arbarca Jumpsuit. More HERE and HERE.

Portland friends — Una (922 SE Ankeny St) carries some of these cute pieces locally!
