Striped palazzo pants + white front tied top

Spring is in full swing now, so off we go in search of spring fun and flowers! Whoot Whoot! We ended up at the Leach Botanical Garden in Portland, Oregon. The flowers were in bloom all around the property, with hints of more yet to come. What started off on a more serious ‘down-to-business’ note ended up on a rather goofy note by the time we made our way up to the top of the gardens.

White top + silver hoop earrings

This outfit was perfect for a romp around the botanical gardens. The lightweight wide leg striped palazzo pants make it a comfortable, yet whimsical outfit. Tying the white button up shirt in a knot at the bottom also adds to the casual day look rather making it look too business-y for a day in the park. Add on comfortable velvet sneakers and a denim jacket for walking in the shady parts of the garden and you’re all set for a fun outing amongst the trees and flowers.

Blue and white strapless floral jumpsuit

It’s that time of year again – where we start transitioning from summer to fall, and this floral jumpsuit is perfect for a cooler fall day paired up with this gorgeous orchid blazer and a pair of velvet tennis shoes. Not that I really want to start thinking about fall because I love summer, but ready or not, here it comes. Get ready for cool crisp days and layering up your look.

I love the silky smooth feel of the material this jumpsuit is made out of. It is actually a polyester / spandex blend, but feels cool to the touch. I wasn’t too sure about the fact that it is strapless. I always feel like something without straps is going to fall right off of me, but it has a wide elastic band on the top. It isn’t going anywhere. And, it has pockets. I love pockets!

The jacket on the other hand, while being super cute, the pockets are fake, and the buttons don’t button up. Hmm. Weird. I mean, this is a Romeo + Juliet blazer. A pretty good name brand. But fake pockets and buttons that don’t button? Is that why I found it at Ross? Ha. I love a good deal, though, and found the jumpsuit, blazer and shoes all at Ross. Gotta love name brand fashions for less, right?

Then there’s those shoes, cute, comfortable and a nice combination of dressy / casual. They are Ralph Lauren’s – found on clearance at Ross. The blazer was a clearance item as well. Not the jumpsuit, but with Ross everyday prices, it was actually less than the other two items.

I just have to mention that my hair had been done on the set of Timmy Failure by the lovely hair stylist, Kay, the day before and I tried to keep it going for the next two days after that. It only looked good still the second day, though. I really only tried to make it look good the next day for this photo shoot, then didn’t try so much the day after that. Plus my head was getting itchy. Time to take the updo down!
