HAPPY FRIDAY! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead with some much deserved lounging. It’s cuckoo to think that it will be September in 9 days — how did that happen?? I’ve been so busy this week with non-blog related wildness — hopefully I can share it soon. If you could keep fingers and toes crossed for me and send good luck vibes — I’d be ever so grateful. Make sure to take a little sloth-ing time for yourself, friends. Time goes so fast — sometimes it’s hard to remember to take it easy! xo Jen

Located within stretch of East Burnside known for great shopping and eateries, Haunt is one of my favorite shops in Portland. When you visit Haunt, you find yourself surrounded with jewelry, clothing, perfume and accessories from both well-known local designers and up-and-comers. Equal parts retail shop, gallery and design studio, Haunt serves as a showcase for all things unique and desirable.

Holly is an indie fashion veteran and helped put Portland on the map nearly fourteen years ago after founding the fondly remembered local Seaplane collective with Kate Towers — another amazing Portland-based fashion designer. Holly is also one of the sweetest and friendliest shopkeepers in town and always has great suggestions to aid in your quest to look fabulous. For the times when you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, her custom design services make it well worth a visit no matter what occasion you’re shopping for.

Knock Knock Linen

I love the linen garments and housewares from Knock Knock Linen. UK designers Egle and Gintaras make their lovely pieces with high quality linen from their home country, Lithuania. It’s inspiring how passionate Knock Knock is about linen, “Our products use traditional and sustainable materials that our grandmothers use to make clothes, towels and kitchen textiles with. At the same time, they have a modern design.” All the linen clothing is dreamy and they make gorgeous bedding, kitchen and table linens and bath towels. I want everything! Linen is the best — so utilitarian and versatile, but still elegant. More HERE.

Evens

Lovely Houston-based label Evens by Kate de Para has a new collection out! I love that Kate is once again using beautiful natural textiles and was inspired to create “the color and texture of the hill country”. My favorites are the pretty new Silk Smock, washed silk Opening Blouse, linen Button Back Smock, chambray Audrey Smock, washed silk Mica Midi Dress and wool Melody Coat. Her bags are stunning too! My favorite is still the Splatter Tote and the Grey Tote is beautiful too. More HERE.

HAPPY FRIDAY! Have a wonderful weekend, friends! I am going to be cleaning the house in a “take no prisoners” fashion in order to do a massive purge of stuff. The idea of it all is pretty daunting, but I know that when fall rolls in it is going to feel REALLY good to be out with the old and more organized. Also, with more space for the new (insert clenched teeth emoji). Have fun out there — I hope your weekend isn’t just a view of a musty basement! xo Jen
