Dream Outfit: Le Mont Saint-Michel


I’ve had Le Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy and Brittany on my mind for several years now. This region is at the top of my travel wishlist and I’m becoming increasingly consumed with thoughts of a nice long stay. I want to drink cider, eat sea salt caramels, stare at the sea, tour Le Mont Saint-Michel and just soak everything in. I don’t know when it will happen, but it will! If you’ve traveled to this area before–I’d love to hear about what you loved!

Here’s a little outfit I put together while daydreaming about visiting Le Mont Saint-Michel. I’m sorry that it’s been such a long time since I made a Dream Outfit! Find more HERE.

DREAM OUTFIT: carnaby hat / tortoise sunglasses / blush elbow-sleeved tee / jeans / spyglass necklace / French cider / stamped leather bag / garden perfume / travel poster / eternal optimist nail polish / wild child lipstick / caramels bretons / leather ballet flats

Dream Outfit: A Rose Garden Stroll

As summer is getting closer I’m looking forward to frequent trips to the amazing Portland Rose Test Garden. We always have a regular stream of visitors during the warm months–flocking to take in the town for the first time or the 12th time. The garden is a place I look forward to taking friends to watch them become completely overwhelmed by the remarkable beauty.

Here is a dreamy outfit I put together for a June Rose Garden stroll–maybe on my birthday (it’s coming up on June 26). I already have the locket and cedar rose hair oil (it smells AMAZING)–so, now I just need the rest! That moon ring is making me swoon! I’m such a moonchild and pearls are one of my birthstones, too. Also, that dreamy leather bag would be perfect. Sigh.

ROSY DAY DREAM OUTFIT: 1. silk dress 2. enamel locket 3. moon ring 4. leather bag 5. shoes 6. nail polish 7. cedar rose argan oil hair tonic

Rainy Day Dots

During a torrential downpour on Monday, I put some cute polka dot pieces I’ve been admiring together. Here’s a spotty outfit to lounge around in while you’re waiting for the skies to clear. Polka dots just always seem to make me feel more cheerful!

Unruly Things: Whiskey By the Fire

hi there! this is Alyson from Unruly Things. I’m excited to fill in for Jen while she’s off in New York. Jen asked for our guest posts to have something to do with the theme “love” and the first thing that I thought of was taking a romantic, weekend vacation–for two! since my son Wolf was born, my husband and I haven’t had any “us time”.  not to say we’re dying to get away from the little guy, but a weekend for just the two of us sounds quite nice!

lately my mind has been pretty distracted with the idea of enjoying a wintry weekend getaway to a cabin in the woods. free of distractions, time to unwind and most importantly, exploring the wilderness. we’d explore on snowshoes. we’d play outside in the cold air until our noses and cheeks turned pink. then we’d hunker down in our comfiest sweats in the evening. we’d dream about our future while fixing a delightful dinner. we’d play cards and make up silly songs.  we’d warm our bodies with whiskey by the fire.

we’d sneak outside, bundled up in our warmest blankets and stare at the stars. we’d wake up early to catch the sunrise and with hopes that we’d spy a few deer passing by. we’d sip hot tea and dine on buttermilk pancakes for breakfast. we’d do all of this together and not once think of the responsibilities we’ve left behind in the city.  sigh… now who’ll watch the baby?  ;)


and to get me even more inspired {and dreamy} here’s what I might pack for our cozy night away:

denim shirt / parka / earrings / pack / sweats / blanket / mug / mandolin / harmonica / moccasins / firestarter kit / libations


Thanks, Alyson! Find Alyson at Unruly Things and on Twitter.
