Summertime Look for the Peninsula Park Rose Garden

The Peninsula Park Rose Garden is truly a gem in North Portland. Cared for by volunteers in the community, it’s the oldest public rose garden in Portland. Truth be told, the first time I entered it took my breath away. Over 6,000 roses in every color imaginable and free for the public to enjoy!

I had been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear these adorable lace up linen shorts from Free People that I recently thrifted. So when S.J. from All Glam No Filter joined me to explore the rose garden on a sunny Saturday afternoon I knew I had found my chance.

I paired a sleeveless turtle neck top with the shorts, in a neutral color so the shorts could steal the show. 😉

This leather crossbody from The Sak has been my go-to bag this summer. In my humble opinion, a good crossbody is fashionable and functional, with enough room to fit a book. This one hits all the marks.

Summer is starting to wind down, which means I have only one last summer look to bring you. But that also means my favorite season for fashion will soon be here: AUTUMN! 🍂🍁🍂 Along with affordable autumn fashion, I have some really cool stuff planned to share with you this fall. Stay tuned!
