Labor Day Weekend - Portland Trip

I went down to Oregon for the weekend for some shopping, eating and sight seeing.  I surprisingly didn't buy much since I had a mental list of clothing items I needed to buy.  

From Forever 21, I bought a neon yellow peplum top for $10.50 USD (similar style) and charcoal grey trousers with a lace stripe down the leg (for $22.80 USD).  From the Ann Taylor outlet, I bought the signature pump in porclini (similar style) - a taupe bone colour (it was regular $155, on sale for $80 but extra 40% off and additional 10% off worked out to be $44 USD).  These three items make a great outfit.  Just throw in a nice bag and the outfit is complete.  

I needed shorts for working out so I got these Under Armor ones at the outlet (for $10 USD, regular $40) and these Lululemon running Light As Air shorts - similar style (for $39 USD, regular $58).  I bought these PJ shorts from Forever 21 for cheap ($6.80 USD).

I also bought my Laura Mercier minderal foundation for $36USD (or ~$42 CAD) and NARS concealer for $22 (or ~$28 CAD).  I hate buying make up.  It's so expensive.  It's annoying how much darker my face got over the summer because of running outside and playing in the water at the pool/lake.  

There's one last final item I bought.  It's a shoe.  I don't have it with me at the moment but it's pretty different from what I normally wear.  I'll create another post dedicated to it soon enough.

The last day was reserved for sight seeing.  We drove to Cannon Beach to see the Haystack Rocks and had an early dinner at a local tavern.  It was super windy and cold that particular day.  There were surfers in the water, people flying kites, lots of dead birds on the shore (not sure why) and washed up dead jelly fish.  You couldn't tan or swim in the water leisurely that day because of the high winds and the cold weather.  We took the longer but scenic route back to Vancouver along the Oregon Coast Hwy to avoid the traffic along the I-5.

I was told that I look out of place on this beach by how I dress and carrying Prada.  Then again, I usually look out of place.  I'm wearing:

Forever 21 jacket and shorts, Jacob tank, Chloe sunglasses, Spring flip flops and Prada bag

Then today, I had my first day of school.  I only had 4 hours of sleep and I was so tired.  I woke up early to go to school to find out my orientation didn't start till the afternoon.  I took the time to explore the campus and sort out the things I was missing.  

September is going to be a busy month.  Not only with going to school full time, I have 6 important birthdays (yay for possible photo ops), my blog's 1 year anniversary giveway,  Vancouver Fashion Week S/S 2013, IVSA and Fashion Night Out on my plate as well.  I've got to be super selective with my time for this month or else I'm going to pass out from exhaustion.  




  2. Nice buys! I especially like that peplum top! I have yet to try that trend.


  3. ohhh cuteness!! the neon yellow peplum is ADORBS!!

    i love your boxy prada.. so chic!

    haha as for the sequin miu miu's.. they actually aren't that delicate.. although i'm not sure since i haven't worn them yet.. they're sewn on pretty tightly.. but i'm sure if i were to get it snagged on something.. it might not be pretty hahaha.

  4. Cute outfits! The beach looks beautiful!
