These photos were taken on what I believe may have been the last warm, sunny day in Portland for the year. Call me crazy, but I’m looking forward to the change in weather that Fall brings. I love getting caught in the rain, splashing in puddles, and taking a warm bath afterwards. (What am I, 8?!)

Mother Nature, bring on the cold! I’m ready for ya with some knee-length coats, wool scarves, and Burberry rain boots!


What I bought: HRH Collection necklace and Forever 21 bracelets

I have photos of this whole outfit coming up in a post next Monday, so I’m not going to talk about the clothes, but I just wanted to highlight two new jewelry purchases that I’m really excited about.

The Cuff Necklace is from HRH Collection, a jewelry designer/ blogger whom I recently stumbled across. She’s got some beautiful, reasonably priced, unique pieces that make a statement with everyday wear in her online store.

And the bracelet I’m wearing in this photo is from Forever 21. I also bought it in yellow and in red, which I planned to stack on top of each other but found that I’m most partial to this teal color by itself. Because it’s from Forever 21, it’s really inexpensive (obviously). But because these bracelets are so detailed and elegant, I would have never have been the wiser had someone sold them to me at a much higher price tag from a department store. Don’t you love stuff like that?

Have you acquired any interesting statement pieces recently? I’m finding that accessories are the easiest way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank, so expect my future outfit posts to be accessory-filled.
