I HEART PDX

honey-kennedy-xtabay-vintage-clothing-pdx-summer-2014-01

Woooah. There is A LOT of fun stuff happening around town. I’m pretty sure that with some determination, coffee and maybe some naps — you could make it to all of these if you really wanted to. You could maybe even still have a picnic and go pick fruit on Sauvie Island. And bake a clafoutis. And take your bicycle for a country ride. Or maaaybe I need to figure out how many things I will actually be able to do. HAPPY SUMMER, YOU GUYS!! xo Jen

Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to a quick ocean escape. I can’t believe it will be my first time getting my feet in the sand and salt on my lips this summer. For me, trips to the sea always help me to feel balanced, release stress and think through the things weighing on me before reorganizing my priorities. So important! Ocean mental health. I’m also hoping to do a bit of baking if it isn’t too hot or maybe make a batch of homemade lavender apricot ice cream if it is… or both! Have a lovely weekend! xo Jen

Beach Party

honey-kennedy-kay-francis-edward-steichen-at-lilyan-beach-party-hollywood-1931

Monday, Monday. I’m not quite ready for the week since this weekend zipped by in a blink. I thought these beach party photos from 1931 looked nice and escapist — this gang knew how to have fun. Let’s pretend we’re lounging on white sands in floppy sun hats with dear friends and old movie stars while we mindlessly nibble summer fruit and sip iced tea without a care in the world. Or sangria… or mojitos. That sounds nice. Have a good week! Also, most of the shopping codes from the White Magic shops and makers will end today — make sure to use them while you can!
