Here are a few of my favorites from the Wyatt Orr Matryoshka Dolls and Open Spaces collection for Spring/Summer 2015 by Seattle-based designers Liise Wyatt and Karly Orr. I love all the simple shapes, minimal silhouettes, their use of color and textures, and the layering that they do. I look forward to seeing more from these ladies! My personal faves are the first two looks, the all black dress and the last look. More HERE.
There are some beautiful pieces in the new LunaSol collection from Portland-based designer Lindsey Alonzo. Her Sonora collection for spring was inspired by the Sonora Desert, adobes, desert plant life and the earth tones and soft colors found in southern Arizona, California and northern Mexico. I love that you can choose from a variety of lovely linen colors for the pieces that incorporate linen cord. My favorites are the Aponi necklace, the Sierra necklace and the Puebla ring. More HERE.
A SWEET DEAL

There are a lot of beautiful pieces for spring and summer at 100 Year Party right now. This shop is the new incarnation of what was formerly Pour Porter and I’m still in love with their merchandise selection and aesthetic. Some of my current favorites are everything from Atelier Delphine — the check dress with rope belt, stunning pebble dye Chloe jacket (SO IN LOVE!) and Lyric pant, and the natural Furoshiki rectangle bag. I also love the white NOT Side Pleat pants and all the amazing Sydney Brown shoes. More HERE.

There are so many shoes from Coclico that I’d love to add to my closet. Their new 1970s-inspired spring collection has a lot of beauties that look comfy to boot. Some of my favorites are the pairs that include leather printed with designs by Portland’s Haley Ann Robinson — whose work I’ve mentioned before. My faves for the new season are those white Pink Flats, the black Golden Flats, printed Golden Flats, Rush Sandals, Doobie Flats, Yola Sandals, Ros Sandals and the Noir Wedges. I also LOVE the Iris and Ivonne. More HERE and HERE.
“A decade that conjures the memory of so many idle hours spent in total abandon; the warmth of the sun and the magic of twilight lingering with kindred spirits in the halcyon days of summer.” — Coclico on the 1970s
Have a wonderful weekend!! I’ve caught some kind of awful flu and it sounds like a car driving on a gravel road when I breathe. I had so many fun plans for the weekend, but they have quickly devolved to tea and juice chugging while sleeping or watching Game of Thrones. I hope you all evade this beast — it really does a number on you. Have fun! xo Jen
