WEEKEND WEAR GUEST : Portland Street Style in Seattle


Since I wasn't able to visit Portland, Oregon this time around, I had Portland come to me in Seattle. Including but not limited to, dear friend meetups at the coffee shops & book stores, hilarious waiters and real blueberry pop tarts, friend circles converging, and that oh so wonderful PNW fashion scene! I've always been a huge fan of Lauren's style - or should I just say Lauren in general?! Her approach to fashion comes from a perspective of the practical minimalist who is intentional with each look she creates.  From floral dresses with tights to the casual street wear, Lauren is a favorite.

Isn't her bag just incredible? Better yet, it's from FashionABLE - a local and global company that works to empower women who have overcome by creating beautiful products - See more and shop here!

Mix it up: Since we met for coffee for just a few hours, we decided to shoot only one outfit. But for continued inspiration, Lauren has a mean Pinterest board worthy of everyone's follow. Pretty sure I repin most everything of hers....

Ah! Lauren! Come live on the East Coast and always make me laugh!
