As I’m wrapping my head around the fact that autumn is coming, I’ve been starting to peek at fall collections a little bit more. I’m enjoying the new REIFhaus A/W 2016 collection from Portland’s Lindsey Reif. I think my favorite new design from Lindsey is the Cascadia Poncho in sienna waxed canvas because it’s such a perfect layer for our misty, damp fall and winter weather in the Pacific Northwest. The collection of great separates is actually an homage to the landscapes and natural and urban settings that the NW provides easy access to — city buzz, roaring sea, dense old growth forests, and even a painted desert. I think the poncho is decidedly forest, but would also be lovely to have on blustery coastal romps. My other faves are the Ramona Wrap Jumpsuit in black linen, the Gather Blouse in black linen, the Big Shirt Dress in navy stripe, and the Yoko Jacket in wool tweed. More HERE.

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been enjoying time this week with my good friend, Jenna, while she’s visiting me from Brooklyn. We’ve gone to the ocean, picked fruit and flowers, talked for hours, and I’m looking forward to taking her to more shops around town. I’m also looking forward to doing some cooking! Well, light cooking, mostly making salads and ice cream (we have this simple ice cream maker and it’s great!) since it’s supposed to be 100 degrees this weekend. Have a fun one! See you next week. ♥ xo Jen

Hello! Here we go with another installment of Lovely Things! This roundup seems to be feeling the love for tomato red, hot pink, muted apricot hues, grids, black straw, abstract art, mid-century, and cool vintage babes. And shoes. I really want some new shoes and I’m kind of loving those red booties, but I always end up with practical neutrals for autumn. We’ll see — maybe I’ll go rogue this year! Check out more Lovely Things roundups HERE. ♥
Errrrmaghuuurrrrd. I love this beautiful bar cart. I also have a spot for it. Help.
I just love this lounge-y color story and subtle middle finger from Vogue in 1950.
Aaaaahhhhh! This cubist bookshelf is so dreamy. Love the colors.
Flying saucer? Little black hat? Such a great little incense burner.
This is a pretty good defense of carnations. They can be SO LOVELY.
There’s just something about red suede shoes.
These hand-woven recycled plastic bags are so pretty. The large tote, please!
All of these things, please. I like all the cute new takes on tassel loafers/oxfords lately.

The large, modern space utilizes beautiful mid-century furniture as backdrop for a wonderful selection of goods. You’ll find lots of jewelry, including pieces from Portland favorites Demimonde, Betsy & Iya, and Kiersten Crowley. I also recommend checking out the beautiful French barrettes, scarves, and other sweet accessories. There are art prints from a bunch of very talented artists, including: Julianna Swaney, Archie’s Press, Mai Autumn, Animal Sleep Stories, Archie, and Michelle Maule. Debbe stock a variety of handbags from the likes of Irish designer and cult favorite Orla Kiely, the well-made vegan leather line from Matt & Nat, and several others. There is also a huge selection of delightful stationery, candles, soaps, and more apothecary goods from lovely natural lines, and so, so much more!
During my visit I was delighted to overhear a mother mention — after stopping in with her small son — that it was their Saturday morning ritual to make a visit after breakfast to look at his favorite items in the shop. In fact, the shop was quite busy despite the early hour and coinciding gorgeous weather. Inviting seating and the lovely staff make it easy to want to get lost while hanging out and admiring all the pretty. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one or a special way to brighten your own day, Tilde always has lots of of great options from independent makers.

While I was working on my pretty Rose-Tinted Visions sunglasses post, I also bookmarked a bunch of lovely black, brown, and tortoise shades that I love. I’m starting to let the autumn vibes in, so this palette is my pick for when those leaves start to fall. No matter what the hue, I always gravitate to that old movie star glamour and vintage bad boy classics. I might be kind of a nerd, but I think those who wear good shades in any season add a little mystery, intrigue, and swag. I love the color of this brown pair (also, my middle name!) and I think they would look good on fellas, too. I own and love this glamour babe black pair that are 40% off. I wear mine ALL THE TIME. Those are the only ones on major sale, but there is a range of price points in that sea of fanciness. You can click the pics in this new roundup, too! ♥
