What I Wore: Day Out With Mom

My mom is in town.  She flew in on Wednesday afternoon, from Las Vegas.  She figured since she was already on the mainland for vacation she might as well stop off in Portland for a few days before heading back.  I love when my mom visits.  We shop; a lot.  Eat out, a lot.  And generally really enjoy each other's company.  My kids love it as well!  They take every opportunity to spend time with their Tutu!  I feel bad for my mom because it seems difficult for her to split up her time between each child, ensuring they each get to spend ample time with her.


Yesterday was mom's first full day in Portland.  And we woke to this.  It was crazy!  We spent most of the morning at home.  After shoveling the driveway we spent a couple of hours at the mall before picking up the boys from school and taking Donx for his overdue, 6-yr check up.


Luckily this morning was mild and you could tell it was going to be beautiful.  By mid day the sun was shining bright, it was in the low 50s and I didn't need to wear a coat!  A denim jacket was all I needed.  I took the opportunity to wear a great, little satin dress with a brown belt and boots.  And most excitedly I busted out my eagle necklace, which I am so, incredibly obsessed with.  T thinks the necklace is hilarious, my mom says its "nice" with a slight eye roll and they both kind of laugh at me because i'm simply mad about it.

Today mom and I went to one of our favorite breakfast spots, Arleta Library Bakery Cafe.  We go here every time she visits because my mother is in love with their biscuits & gravy.  In fact much of Portland loves their biscuits and gravy.

We hit up a few stores today, stopped off at Ikea, strolled around downtown Portland, lunched at Hubers.  It was a low key, relaxing day.  We soaked in as much of the sunshine as we possibly could because this being Portland and all, who knows when we'll see it again!
