With all the long sleeves pushed to the back, the front of my closet is eagerly awaiting to be filled with this season’s best styles, buys, and finds. From shorts, sandals, and dresses, to fun accessories and my personal favorites from this season’s tomboy inspired looks, Portland shopping for summer 2015, has you covered in all the right ways.
Need a fresh take on all things shorts? Stop in to Mabel and Zora (748 NW 11th Ave) for attention-grabbing prints and patterns, and then discover what rompers or a Trina Turk jumpsuit can do for the whole look. Add a cute pair of sandals or heels with a long necklace, and you have a killer outfit (for day or night) in no time!
Seeking more timeless style to add to your wardrobe? Make a visit to Bridge & Burn (1122 SW Morrison St.) for your new Audrey Camo Shorts (soon to be paired with almost every top you own, I promise). Then pick up a Loren Olive Dress ready to be paired with flats or boots for a killer look that’s ready in 5 minutes flat!
Speaking of sandals we all need in our life this season, Halo Shoes (938 NW Everett St) has the answers to your dreams. Slide on a pair of Chloé Erika sandals with kilt detail, or Calleen Cordero Jocci sandals with gold, hand-studded detail, and the compliments you receive will speak for themselves!
No summer season is complete without attitude and style that encourage you to go out…and play! Seek adventure and support your inner tomboy with new, favorite pieces from Wildfang (wildfang.com), including their Midnight Tomboy Tank and The BLKLBL.01 Reversible Bomber for any chilly night following one of those unforgettable, rambunctious days.
And finally, for sustainable women’s fashion design check out EcoVibe in their new Nob Hill location, 904 NW. 23rd Ave.
