Lovely Things: Mother’s Day Edition

Hello! Here is a new installment of LOVELY THINGS and, this week, I decided to give it a loose Mother’s Day theme with a bunch of things that I think my mom friends, you, your moms, and your grannies might like to be gifted. There are lots of brick and mortar shops here if you live locally in Portland. Go shop around! And, as always, sending out hugs to everyone who has a hard time on this celebratory day — whatever the reason. Life can feel pretty loaded — you aren’t alone. Take care of yourself and take it easy. Lots of love to all my ladies who are raising the coolest kids — I’m so happy to get to see it all happen and to know your amazing babes. More LOVELY THINGS.

This beautiful linen jacket would be a super closet staple for… well, everyone? PROMO: Free Worldwide Shipping! (no code needed)

Maybe mom needs a cute new dress that works in all seasons.

Your momma probably doesn’t want to get a sunburn while strolling beaches or drinking pink wine (or gin!) on patios. PROMO: Free US shipping on orders $100+ PDX SHOP: Shop Boswell is located at 729 SE Morrison Street ♥

Oh, just a super special little clover necklace that lucky dreams are made of.

YES. This linen tee is so sweet with that skirt and would be a simple sundress coverup to have in your bag. PROMO: Free Worldwide Shipping! (no code needed)

I can recommend these lovely locally made mugs because I love the ones I bought for myself. PROMO: Free tote with every purchase of $100+ PDX SHOP: Notary Ceramics is located at 8035 SE 13th Ave. ♥

It would be hard to decide from the faded rosy pink or the minty green. Beautiful! PDX SHOP: Beam & Anchor is located at 2710 N. Interstate Ave. ♥

YUM! Such a delicious collaboration between two Portland creative geniuses — Bergamot Cardamom Dark Chocolate. PDX SHOP: Olo is located at 1407 SE Belmont Street ♥

Say it with big ol’ hoops and other statement jewels. PDX SHOP: Betsy & Iya is located at 2403 NW Thurman Street ♥

… or maybe swinging brass petals? PROMO: Free U.S. shipping on orders $250+! PDX STUDIO: The Seaworthy studio is located 3322 NE Wasco St (you can arrange to pick up locally and follow them for open studio days!) ♥

Does your momma need a chill pill, some brain tonic, or a cup of fireside chai? PROMO: Free US Shipping now thru 5/10! PDX SHOP: Wild Poppy Goods is located at 5713 NE Fremont Street ♥

Maybe mom needs a dreamy suede jacket that makes her feel like a French pop chanteuse?

Get yourself (I mean, your mom!) a beautiful leather handbag that comes with a shoulder strap and a cross-body strap.

Does your momma sew? A very affordable subscription to this magazine comes with so many amazing sewing pattern freebies, a ton of useful info, and a sewing community forum.

An intriguing fragrance can be an incredibly sweet gesture and may find your loved one with a new signature scent. I wear Cedar & Rose pretty much constantly all summer. PDX SHOP: Olo is located at 1407 SE Belmont Street ♥

These necklaces look so good together — the Cloud Peak and the small Hyalite Diamond pendant.

Moms, and non-moms alike, love gauzy block print scarves, like these versatile cotton voile honeys. PROMO: Get 20% off with code: MOMLOVE 5/10 thru 5/13 + free U.S. shipping on orders $100+! PDX SHOP: Tilde is located at 7919 SE 13th Ave. ♥

Maybe mom would like a dreamy KC poppy pillow to rest her pretty face on? PROMO: Free U.S. ground shipping on orders $75+

How about a comfy block print robe or an amazing scarf?

I love this linen bag. I have the pink linen version that is my favorite for farmers market shopping and for beach times. PDX SHOP: Alder & Co. is located at 616 SW 12th Ave. ♥

Maybe mom’s a little woo woo and would love a game of lunar phases dominoes? PROMO: Free U.S. shopping for orders $250+ PDX SHOP: Woonwinkel is located at 935 SW Washington Street ♥

Anything from Tata Harper would likely thrill any lady. Perhaps a bottle of Hydrating Floral Essence to spritz before her face cream, the ultra healing Repairative Moisturizer, or one of the beautiful TH Face Masks would help her face feel super nourished and soft. PROMO: Free U.S. shipping for orders $50+

I love Debbie’s foggy mountain art print, the rose garden print, and really everything else she does. PROMO: Free U.S. shipping on all orders.

So many simple beautiful things in this shop. I especially love this barrette right now.

Does the mom you are shopping for have a bit of a sweet tooth? All the cookies and other sweets from Jenna and Mark are insanely delicious. They also have lots of sampler gift box options!

Sleep tight, mom. She can rest her head under a brass phases of the moon garland. PDX SHOP: Charming the Moon will be at a Portland pop up shop this Saturday, May 12, from 12PM to 7PM at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel at 403 SW 10th Ave. ♥

Happy New Year!

Happiest New Year to you all! I’m so grateful for you joining me here — it means so much to me. Truly. It’s been such a tough year and the next one doesn’t look to be getting any easier with the people in power. I am working on my New Year’s Intentions list to post in the next couple weeks, but my heart is just so thankful for unity and community. Most of us aim to be on the right side of history and knowing that is what keeps hope alive for the triumph of decency and progress. Knowing that there are more good people than bad is a potent energy. Sending you all lots and lots of love. I’m going to keep it light and take some much needed time off in January, but I’ll definitely be popping in for some posts. I hope you make room for some self-care, too! xoxo Jen
