Brights at the AC
This past week really has taken a turn for fall - as in the air is crisp, the breeze is solid and the evenings are down right chilly.
In fact, I even wore socks to bed last night because my feet were cold <gasp>!
And as much as everyone is complaining about it, I sort of love it. I have been dyyyiinnngggg to wear some of my cozy knits and a few new jackets I swooped up in sales over the summer - which I would have paired with this dress had it of been colder last week when I wore it.
But anyway...it wasn't and so I thought for everyone who was wishing it was warm that this bright little number and the 90+ degree weather that day would bring back some summer memories.
And speaking of summer...this past summer another hotel joined us here in the Portland scene. Which, even though it's part of a larger chain, is one of their boutique style offerings...which you know I like.
It's called the AC - and I must say they didn't space much expense in the exterior look or the interior decor - it's absolutely stunning. Especially their bar area with floor to ceiling windows, plenty of space for groups, cozy corners for dates and water views all around.
In fact, the husband and I enjoyed it so much that we stayed beyond the "one drink" before dinner that we had originally planned on all the way through dinner.
Definitely a spot I have on my radar for a staycation this winter.
And back to brights...as some of you may know we are getting ready for a fairly large trip. We'll be gone most of October traveling to Australia, Portugul and Spain where bright colors are going to be rampant given the fact that it's summer(ish) there.
So even though it's feeling like fall, and I love fall clothing, I am going to have to resist committing too much because next week I'll be packing and preparing for multiple weeks in a bit warmer of climates.
I'm also not complaining about that...we've been looking forward to this trip for quite some time now and to say we're excited would be an understatement.
What I am not excited about is my growing to-do list of things to get done before we leave. It's so long that I've actually been waking up at 4am on the daily stressed out about it.
I need an assistant...for real.
And on that note...happy friday kids.
Cheers to the freaking weekend and putting off adult duties until tomorrow.
