Courtney from kelly + olive (an AMAZING e-decorating site...seriously, USE THEM) is a long time friend.  We met years before betsy & iya and kelly + olive were even baby zygotes.  We were theatre junkies in Virginia at the time (we still kind of are...secret sides of our lives), but style was always knocking on the door---popping her head in to say hello.


I've always admired Courtney and been impressed by the amazing woman she's become.  She used to live in Portland (wah wah) and comes to visit on occasion.  She came to me with some mini champagne, stinky cheese and fresh bread from City Market on 21st.  It was so nice to escape from work and spend a sunny PDX afternoon with her.


Her style was rocking (as per usual) that day.  I like how simple and elegant this particular look is.  The girl looks good in anything! Dress, shoes, purse...kazam!

dress: an old Gap goodie.  clean lines, simple, beautiful.

earrings: betsy & iya


(brand new b & i design, currently owned by the beautiful lovely,  Courtney)

This time she couldn't leave without a new pair of earrings.  She looked so darn cute in them that I had to capture it and share it with you.


Make sure you check out her awesome work at kelly + olive.  And definitely check out her inspiring blog, here.  I can't wait to see what else she comes up with.  It's beyond satisfying to watch your friends grow.  Courtney, you're great--I'm so glad your stylish self is in my life.

Oh, yes.. we were just in Portland for the long weekend, so it was a quick visit. Love the city! Stayed at the Ace and did all the touristy things.. Powell’s, Doug Fir, Voodoo Donut, Pearl District.. I wish we had more time to shop… I am kicking myself for not looking up more Portland designers and stores!
