HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! What a week! I’m so excited about my two amazing giveaways and everything happening in the coming weeks. The thrill of fall is dizzying and I’m already getting excited for the holidays. I think with such a hot ass summer — the promise of cooler days is that much more wonderful. My weekend is busy with organization and getting the house ready for my friend visiting from Montreal, but I’m going to try to squeeze some more baking and soup making in. Have a good one! xo Jen

P.S. Has anyone been watching this show? It’s on my list — maybe this weekend.

Emerson Fry Giveaway!

YAY! I’m so happy to be having a big Emerson Fry giveaway today to welcome autumn and celebrate Emerson’s beautiful collection. One lucky person will get a $1,000 gift card to spend on whatever they’d like from the dreamy Emerson Fry shop! Emerson’s clothes are a joy — beautifully made, versatile, feel so good to slip on and you can move in them. I really appreciate her thoughtful take on design, textiles, production and what modern women will want to reach for in their closet again and again. My current faves are the Ryan Coat, the Tie Up Dress (both in black and Stone), the black coated Moto Frenchie Jeans, the Layering Hoodie, the Jet Silk Yoshi Tunic, all the EF Sweaters and all the pretty shoes. Plus, Emerson has a cute dog, is obsessed with finding balance, takes risks and loves Donovan records, so she’s 100% my kind of lady. More HERE. GOOD LUCK, FRIENDS! ♥

I hope you have a good weekend planned for yourself. I am going to go crazy with baking and cooking to try to make a dent in a mountain of pears and apples we’ve accumulated from our farm share. We also have a bunch of beautiful mushrooms to use — I’m hoping to make and freeze a bunch of meals. Maybe soup and tarts. Any recipe ideas are very welcome! I’m so excited that it is cool enough now for soup and baking! I also want to read a stack of magazines and catch up on my sleep deficit. Happy Friday, friends! xo Jen

I’ve been loving the new collection of jewels from Barrow — made here in Portland by Lindsay Jordan Kretchun and Rachel Warkentin in their sweet NE studio. The new muted, watercolor like glaze and pretty hand-dyed cotton cord are so beautiful. My F/W 2015 favorites are the Estrella Necklace, the Norte Bangles, the Laredo Tassels Necklace and all the stud earrings. Aaaannnnd… if you are trying to quit — I think a fancy English rose and gold porcelain cigarette is an elegant badge of honor for making such a good choice! More HERE.

Portland peeps — This Saturday 9/26 make sure to stop by the fun BLOCK PARTY event that Barrow will be having with other local makers from 5PM to 9PM at 323 NE Wygant. Drinks + deals! MORE INFO.

I love the new Favor Jewelry collection! Portland-based designer, Monika Reed, decided to get back into stones after taking some time off from using them until she could find some ethically-sourced stones and I’m over the moon that she found them. My Favor faves for F/W 2015 are the Apex Earrings, Black Spike Earrings, the Clear Spike Ring (stack with Black Spike Rings!) and the Perimeter Necklace. There is even a dreamy bronze option for many designs and, as always, they have such amazing prices for her pieces. Also, Favor is having two jewelry giveaways and anyone who buys jewels between now and midnight this Friday with the discount code (below) gets their name in the hat for even more jewels! More HERE.
