portland on a sunny saturday afternoon


we went to portland today and had scallop chowder from a market on munjoy hill. after lunch i daydreamed about sinking my tired feet into an angela adams birch circular rug. if you haven't seen one of her hand tufted rugs in person, i very much recommend it. they are so plush and inviting. if i had one, i would throw a bunch of pillows on the floor and read a book or two. someday....


we then headed to black parrot where i discovered that an 8.5 in the rachel comey sidewinder mocs is much much too small (that was their only size). then chelliswilson where i was happy to see clothing by fog linen after coveting everything lena ordered from the japanese site.

a raincloud mobile and a peek at chelliswilson's inspiration board.

a le bouton top (with pockets) and a gathered back. i'm hoping lisa will make more of these in a darker color like grey.

a fog linen dress, simple and so easy to wear. i threw it on over my pants because i was feeling lazy. such a soft pretty shade of blue.

a linen skirt by vestiare de cle (i think).

one of my favorite pieces. the very sheer scallop dress by loup charmant, which uses the softest organic cotton in a light, airy weave. it reminded me of an edwardian school-girl dress, perfect for garden parties, or maybe a city hall wedding/vow renewal.

now all i want is to wear linen and cotton lawn and sip lemonade. hope your weekend is lovely!

Love Lisa's top- my favorite out of all the looks. The white linen dress is also very pretty on you- very E.M.Forster.

Fog Linen does make amazing products.
Chellis Wilson looks like a nice place to spend a couple hours on a spring afternoon.

Leon has turned into such a little man-so cute.

Oh, these are all really beautiful, wearable pieces. I think the back of the le bouton top is especially great.
