Hello from scorching Portland. Whew. I guess I was complaining too much about wanting summer weather back…it’s back this weekend in full force…as in, the high yesterday and today has been 98 degrees, y’all (can I blame Nick Lachey?) Thank goodness for the recent romper purchases I made for both S and I…we are as cool as we could be without going out on the town in our swimsuits (I was seriously tempted since it was already 86 before noon!)
Here we took my BFF from high school and her family to see the Tilicum Bridge for some gorgeous (sweltering) Portland views. We did a rushed “oh yes, gorgeous!” take-a-quick-pic walk on the bridge before we headed to Powell’s Books for the best book selection and, most importantly, good AC, which most homes here are not equipped with (including ours).
Keep reading for the rest of the nutty Portland weather #myeverydayedit…
Romper– Gap Halter Romper – I love this romper. I have trouble finding one pieces that fit me in the inseam/rise. This comes in petite and tall for a much better fit than most. It has pockets, too. Wearing Petite Medium (a small might have worked though…runs a bit large). (40% off right now with code FORME)
Sandals– Matisse Rosie Flat Sandal – These I snagged from the Nordstrom sale and I love them. They are handmade in a lovely leather that will stretch to conform to your foot. They run a teeny bit narrow, but again, I can tell this is a leather that will stretch just enough. They are beautiful.
Bracelet– Betsy & Iya Tilicum Crossing Cuff Bracelet – Betsy & Iya make some of my very favorite jewelry. They are a local Portland company and make really rad earrings and bridge bracelets for each of the Portland bridges (so cool). Incidentally, I am wearing the bridge bracelet that matches the bridge we are standing on. Aw.
Sunglasses-(similar) Ray Ban Large Original Aviators
Romper– Target Floral Romper – I mean, I could not pass this up. I feel like 3 might be the last year she can wear a romper. Maybe? They are so freaking cute on littles. Runs a little long. S is wearing a 3T.
Hat– Target Paper Braid Hat – Yep. A matching hat…dying of cuteness.
Sandals– Saltwater Original Sandal
Tattoos– Color In Tattoo Party – Sienna got these for her birthday from her aunt and uncle. They are super fun!
You Knew There’d Be Overalls
This you will have seen over on Instagram if you follow me (@elletrain). Love this outfit SO much I have to remember which people I’ve worn it around so as not to wear it around the same ones every time. Haha. Does anyone else do that? I fear I’m really becoming the overalls girl…Sienna actually calls them overgirls and it’s my most favorite mix-up of hers evah.
Overalls– Citizens of Humanity Audrey Overalls – You’ve heard me rave of their amazingness. Still 30% off!
Blouse-(similar) Express Sleeveless Portofino
Shoes– Steve Madden Miillo Mules
The Day It Was Quite Cool But I Was In Denial and Still Wore Sandals
Alternate title: When Your New Hair Color Matches Your House. Haha. I decided to go a little lighter for the summer. It took a bit for me to get used to, but now I’m loving it. On this day I wanted it to be warmer than it was…so I wore sandals.
Jacket-(similar) Gap 1969 Icon Denim Jacket – I love their denim jackets.
Shirt– (similar) Madewell Central shirt
Jeans-(similar) Madewell 9″ High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Rip and Repair – Same fit as mine, but a bit different wash.
Sandals-(similar) Born Taj Red Sandal
The Game-Changer Cardigan
We talk about cardigans here on The Mom Edit and how, though useful, they can kind of make an outfit just…blah. Well, I feel like the way to avoid this but still benefit from a cardigan’s purpose in life is to find a cool long cardigan. This one I love because it’s lightweight, striped (I’m obsessed, yes), and long. It looks nice here with boyfriend jeans and adds interest to this outfit, but it also works so fabulously with shorts and cutoffs to keep you a bit warmer and a bit covered. The linen blend of this make it’s special, too.
Cardigan – Linen Blend Cardigan – I’m in love. See above.
Tee – Everlane The Cotton V – Wearing a Small for a more fitted look.
Jeans – Levi’s 501 CT Jean
Shoes – Steve Madden Miillo Mules
The Easy Shoes On-Repeat Right Now
Hi. I’m Laura. I love old school Birkenstocks. No, I don’t wear them with socks, but I wear them 80% of the time right now. Like, I think I forced myself to put some other shoes on for these outfits so y’all didn’t think I was quite so crunchy. Haha. Also, if you haven’t tried Native Shoes (what Sienna is wearing) for your kiddos, do it. Best. WAY cuter than Crocs, IMO, and still durable and wonderful for getting messy or for water play.
Shoes – Birkenstocks Arizona yeah yeah
Overgirls – Citizens of Humanity Audrey Overalls
Sienna’s shoes– Native Shoes
Sienna’s leggings (similar) – Old Navy Printed Cropped Leggings
For When You Really Want To Wear PJ’s But You Should Try a Little
Joggers and wedges…besides overalls this is my other favorite go-to outfit. I love joggers, but it is a little tricky to make them look put-together. Enter these Sorel wedges…YES. They are the right amount of sporty and, dare I say, sassy? I don’t know. I just like them and the bit of height makes the joggers look better. Throw on a cool necklace and it looks like you’re all fancy but really you’re just wearing sweatpants. Mwahaha. Yup.
Joggers– (similar) Maddy Washed Jogger Pants – P.S. Don’t get joggers too big. Most will stretch a bit through the day and these are something you don’t want looking too baggy.
Wedges– Sorel Joanie Mesh Wedge Bootie – I LOVE these. They also come in a cool white. They do run a tiny bit short in length. Super comfy like all of the other Joanie line of shoes though. And the mesh keeps feet cool.
Necklace– (similar) BP Bead Fringe Statement Necklace

@rabeanco: I adore your tone on tone photo…that top color, that bag, that wall. Perfection.
The next is hers, also, because, I mean…the top knot and the dress knot. So spot on. Sometimes I get sad I don’t have long hair to wear like this. Gorgeous.
@ruthyannie: You are looking so fabulous for date night. I mean! Gorgeous dress, mama.
