My husband and I recently had the most amazing weekend in Portland. We ate and ate and ate our way through one of the best food cities on the West Coast. We were there for two nights and made it to five restaurants, two doughnut shops, one ice cream parlor and a paleo-focused eatery to track down our beloved bulletproof coffee. We went to eat and I can safely say, mission accomplished.

This was my outfit for our first day of exploring. The hat was an absolute necessity as it only stopped raining for about 45 minutes and unlike us Angelenos, everyone in Portland goes on about their business when it starts to rain. It's as though they don't notice it happening. The hat kept me dry and this sweater coat from Zara kept me warm. It's not available online anymore, but I went into the store last week and there were still a number of these left for only $39.99.

The jeans are part of Zara's new collection so they'll be easy to pick up online or in-store. They're the perfect amount of stretch and distressed and though mine didn't fit as well on the plane ride home as they did on the way up, that just means I need, as always, to work on my moderation skills.

Remember the folks over at Marshelly's who gave one of you a beautiful ring for Valentine's Day? Well, they also have a great collection or delicate gold rings that I'm obsessed with for achieving that layered look. You can check them all out here
