from the streets

Portland, Oregon is one of my absolute favorite places. Whether I'm driving through or staying a few nights (just a few hours from Seattle), I always leave feeling so refreshed and inspired by the lifestyle.

Urban Weeds is a Portland street style blog written by the lovely Lisa Warninger. It is a site I visit daily for outfit inspiration, so I decided to compile a few of my favorite looks for readers of Zipped!
Sage and Lynnsy

I am personally in the market for a pair of oxfords, and totally coveting Sage's! Love her bright orange layer under the denim too. Lynnsy has effortless layering skills, an adorable dog, and cites her mother as her style icon. I love her edgy printed tee with the classic denim shorts!

Julia and Lenay

Julia's printed scarf, cowboy boots, and super flattering high-waist skirt...what's not to love? Need. Lenay's. Skirt. In. My. Closet. Obviously. The crossbody bag pulls it together flawlessly.

Which look is your favorite?





Side note, author Kimberly S. Lin recently sent me a copy of her book, Recession Proof, about a gal named Helen whose life gets turned upside down as a result of the economic recession. The book has a lovable main character and a fun Sex and the City vibe, but please note that this book contains adult content i.e. not for my younger readers :-) Big thanks to Kimberly, as I love having books to add to my collection!
