Chris and I spent the day in Astoria Sunday with Sandra, Colin and Colin's brother Russell. More pictures are to come, but I thought I'd share a few of Chris and I first.

work. knit.

Today I plan to knit. All day. much as my fingers will let me! I guess I should also clean the house, too...ick. What are you crafting these days?

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I'm headed on a little road trip this weekend to see Sandra in Boise. This is a much needed missing my friend trip, relax trip, coffee date trip and Lonely Quail planning trip. See you all when I return! Oh and happy Memorial Day weekend!

a day at the coast

I wouldn't mind having this outfit for a day at the beach!  It's that time of year where city dwellers leave work early on Friday, gridlock the Sunset Hwy and enjoy everything the Oregon coast has to offer. I'm so ready!

I've decided to share a short series of photos I took a while back. All of these were shot with a Pentax K100-D with a Vivitar 105mm macro lens.

coffee date

I'm definitely seeing a trend with my clothing choices these days. Even with Spring here (well, sort of in the NW) I am liking the same old stuff - stripes and black. How can I jazz up black for Spring and Summer?

coffee date

I created this outfit with the vision of having coffee with my bestie. When I normally have a coffee date I wear jeans, Toms and some random top. I wish I could wear this!

travel time thanks to polyvore.

This is my type of outfit for traveling. Comfy (jeans and sandals), go to pattern that goes with everything (stripes), some fun accessories (totally love wood right now) and a backpack (not of the Jansport variety...). What do you like to travel in?

new stuff here on Lovely NW!

Hey all - just a quick post to tell you what is coming up on Lovely NW and what I need your help with!

Today I uploaded a new blog header that I'm excited about AND I plan to make some corresponding blog buttons to go with. Look forward to more new design stuff around here!

Also, here is what I need your help with. What do you like to see when you read a blog, any blog? Do you like to see outfit posts? Lots of pictures? Things from around the web or just personal things from the blogger? I need your help so I can develop Lovely NW and Lonely Quail (me and Sandra's project.) Leave me your comments.

rocker? maybe...

Ok enough Polyvore - promise! You know how it is when you discover something new? You sort of go overboard.

Hope you all have a great weekend!  xo Lovely NW

dark look

This would be my outfit for a day I wanted to sport all black (that seems to be a lot of days...) I really like the look of gold/brass and black together with just a touch of color. I think the jacket and boots add some "edge" I am always wanting and the bag and accessories make it look expensive.
dark look

I really wish I had this outfit! I need some "edge" in my life and wardrobe haha.


I've seen Polyvore outfit montages on Pinterest about a gazillion times. I always like them and wonder if I should make my own. Today I did! Here is my first attempt at putting together an outfit (of mostly items I, unfortunately, do not own.) I will post my "dark outfit" montage next!

Do you use Polyvore? Do you like creating "outfits" for fun? or in your daily life?

o.m.g many months, heck years, I finally got my laptop working! No more blog posts from the iPad!!       Once I get some things figured out on here (updated the software, too!) I will continue to post and bring Lovely NW back to life.

Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I have no idea what to post about anymore. If you have ideas of what you would like to see, what you think I'm good at and want to hear more about, please leave a comment. I need blog ideas so I can get back in to this!!
