read.visit.wear.watch: Portland


Next weekend, I am taking a girls trip up to Portland!  I have never been and am so excited to explore our neighbor to the North.  Living out on the west coast for so many years, I would have imagined myself getting to Oregon a lot sooner than 2013.  My friend and I were busy planning all of our to-do's (Voodoo Donuts, food carts, Nike!), but I would love any suggestions on must-sees or off the beaten path adventures to try out while I am there.  Particularly any local shops, eats or breweries!

Visit: Portland!

Read: "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed.  This does not fully take place in Portland, but I loved reading this memoir/trekking guide to the PCT.  

Wear: A cozy sweater for all those chilly rainy days.  This one is from Mexchic.  A company dedicated to supporting local artisans in Mexico.

Watch: Portlandia.  An easy out I know.  However, I will admit that I am not been a huge fan.  I love the idea (and the fun catchphrases), but the sketches last a little too long in their awkwardness for me to fully enjoy.  However, I did find this amazing article of how Portlandia ruined hipster life.
