Orn Hansen

I’ve been admiring a lot of things at Orn Hansen lately. The new Portlanders, Rob and Rodellee, stock lovely things for ladies, gents and sweet stuff for your home. Some of my favorites are the camel wool coat, cream cardigan, the mossy green cardigan, wide-brimmed hat, Fair Isle socks, these classic boots and their cute denim. I’d also love to try that Juniper Rose Syrup — probably on and in everything! I’m really looking forward to their PDX brick-and-mortar coming in Spring 2015 — stay tuned. More HERE.

Happy Friday, friends! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? I’m planning to do a lot of snoozing and a little antiquing for Art Deco housewares on the coast. I’ve been in total insomnia mode, but I personally believe that you can catch up and refresh by hitting pause on the craziness and sleeping a lot. Lots of chocolatey warm drinks help too, of course! Have a wonderful time — whatever you’re up to. xo Jen
