Sticks and Stones Kiddie Pool Party: Part Deux

This is a post is particularly near and dear to me, as it marks the one year anniversary of my blog and my arrival in Portland. They say the first year is the hardest but I fall more and more in love with you everyday, Portland. Sticks & Stones make rad jewelry, I’ve mentioned them plenty of times before so I’m not going to get into it, but these guys know how to party and are friends with some major babes (read: this was one hot gathering). Last year it was nowhere near warm enough to go swimming. This year was a real scorcher, and it was BYOSS (bring your own super soaker). Needless to say people got soaked, (thanks Stephan for not nailing me). Turning to the clothes, girls and guys alike looked good. But what stood out most to me was the surplus of super-fly handbags in the crowd. Peep the amazing looks below.

Babe in Blue – Love her color scheme with the hot pink. Awesome handbag #1 – Cambridge Satchel Company

I love nothing more than a preppy summer look. White denim is my fave!

Awesome handbag #2 – Marc By Marc
