I am so happy I found this shop! Fern is a wonderful plant design shop housed in a revived old Cincinnati gas station. Owner Megan Strasser offers beautiful handmade goods and artist-led workshops along with gorgeous flora. I really love that she put together a lookbook for her sweet plant shop — it really sets the tone for what to expect before you visit. I also LOVE seeing Elizabeth Suzann’s clothing represented in this lookbook and on the ladies in the shop. So awesome. I’ve only been to Cincinnati once years ago, but I’d love to visit Fern in person someday! Check out @fernshopcincinnati on Instagram — it’s a transcendent and inspiring feed. Take a peek at all the lovelies they carry (Yo! Monstera lovers!) — right HERE.

Autumn with Mr. Larkin

I’ve got my eye on plenty of things at Mr. Larkin again! Shop owner and house label designer Casey Larkin Blond has a wonderful eye. She stocks such a fluid mixture of pieces from designers like Carleen, Reality Studio, Micaela Greg, Luisa et La Luna, and others that go so well with her own designs. My current shop faves are that Navy Lou Coat with the fluttery sleeves, the dreamy silk coral Lava Annika Dress, the flannel Maker Dress, that amazing Nude Bouclé Clarice Top in wool/silk, the Striped Mia Top, the Grey Funnel Neck Sweater, the reversible Quilted Neko Triangles Jacket, the White Bronze Double Opis Cuff bracelet, the Warm White Flavia Shoes, the Nude Agnes Booties, and the Natural Leather Pocket Tote Bag. Plus, they keep adding more pretties every time I look! More HERE.

Terhi Pölkki


I’ve been admiring the shoes from designer Terhi Pölkki for quite a while now. I was holding off on posting my favorites from the Helsinki-based designer’s new autumn collection to see if some U.S. retailers might pop up, but it hasn’t happened yet. Here in Portland, Animal Traffic has a few pairs from last season, but no updates for now. Same story for Umeboshi in Vancouver, B.C.. Luckily, you can order from Terhi’s online shop. I LOVE the Black Hero Boots (want!) and I’m very fond of the laceless, oxford style Black Brandon Flats, Olive Green Hero Boots, the Moroccan-inspired Fiona Babouche Slippers (love the black and olive green), and the Cat Clogs. You guys — maybe we should just go to Finland! More HERE.

Happy Halloween, everyone! Time got away from me on Friday (so much going on with our sweet pup Zelda these days) and I wasn’t able to get my regular link roundup post together for you, so I am doing a Monday! post.

It’s getting real up in here! The happenings are happening… it is the gear up for… dare I say it… THE HOLIDAAAAAYS! Here is my big list of fun stuff happening in Portland today, this weekend, and out a few weeks. Have a blast and do at least one thing (or two) to get yourself in the spooky holiday spirit! I swear, it’s good for the disposition. xo Jen


YUM: I just wanted to give a shoutout to the deliciousness that is Red Sauce Pizza. I’m personally really into the Pub Salad, the HOT Nancy pizza (ricotta, red onion, house hot honey, sea salt), and the Ruthless (ricotta, mushroom, truffle oil, sea salt). Also, check the yummy specials. It’s one of the best pizza joints in the city and it is, in my opinion, THE BEST pizza joint on NE 42nd. Red Sauce is located at 4935 NE 42nd Avenue. 503-288-4899

COFFEE: I just had a delicious saffron, rose, cardamom cappuccino at Never Coffee — see HERE. I very much recommend this adorable little cafe. Never is located at 4243 SE Belmont St. MORE INFO.

RAD NW FARM SHARE DEALS: Sign up now for the Helsing Junction 2017 Farm Share and get a free week! AND, if you pay in full now, you get all sorts of amazing extras (half a flat of strawberries, 1.5 pounds of basil, 10 pounds of storage potatoes, 1 fall fruit share, 2 large flower bouquets…).

It gets busy, but tours depart every 8 minutes throughout the evening and are approximately 45 minutes long. Dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared for dark, uneven ground. Event proceeds are used for preservation efforts at Lone Fir Cemetery. There are mature topics, but I personally think most teens would be super into it. The Lone Fir Cemetery entrance is on SE 26th between SE Stark and SE Morrison. Pre-sale tickets are already sold out, so there are only a few hundred tickets left on a first-come, first-served basis at the gates. Worth it. MORE INFO.
