Holy moly, I guess I should probably post day 1 pics from our mini Portlandia foodie adventure from the beginning of the month. With an abundance of celebrations, and being sick (again. UGH), it’s been difficult to muster up the energy to get to blogging. I’ve also been prepping myself mentally as I started in a new role and sure enough, the start date was my birthday! If that’s not a good sign, I’m not sure what is. So please forgive as life has been sucking the life outta me, in the best way, of course!
Back to Portland.. What a beautiful city, even with random spikes of rain and 5 seconds of hail. It was the perfect time to escape and experience actual autumn with leaves turning color and the crisp cold air, slightly chilling to the bones. So I know we’re not suppose to be chasing waterfalls, but god damn, we did so anyways. Why? Because Multnomah Falls is breathtaking. If I could just sit in solitude without becoming a icicle or eventually get drenched by rain, trust, that is where you’ll find me.

My sister copped this crop top for $4, a steal! I decided to pair it with some high waisted shorts and sadly, even then, my abnormally long torso continues to reveal. Le sigh, first world long torso problems where bra-ettes and crop tops are just beneath the bra line for me. I felt since I’ll never get to wear a midriff back home, I might as well suck it up, and wear it somewhere sunny! LA weather was absolutely gorgeous and continued to heat up that I really didn’t need to bring a long sleeve. However, being so accustomed to city nights, it’s engrained to always be prepared for a chill.
Whilst painting the town of LA with the girls, I paired up with my friend Brian to take these fun shots, along with a few more outfits in the next few blog entries to come! He was able to capture so many great shots, super helpful, and accommodating to your image direction. If you’re ever in or already in the area of LA/Burbank, definitely hit him up: http://www.briancuasito.com
