  • Plenty to do in Portland!

    It's officially starting to feel like Spring, and when you’ve got weather and time on your side it’s important to take advantage of it.  There’s plenty to do in and around Portland when it comes to the perfect date night, but what about the perfect outdoor day date?  Below are a few creative activities for those cute lovebirds who are looking to do something new.

    1. Hop on your bike or rent one and pedal your way around Portland with a guided bike tour.  Voted #2 top “10 Things to do in Portland” by Time Magazine, this is an experience you don’t want to miss!
    2. Tie up a pair of Brown Trail Walking boots by New Balance and go on a trek through Forest Park.
    3. Grab a public art walking tour map and check out a number of historic statues and stunning sculptures or take a stroll through the Pearl District and stop in the many alluring art galleries.
    4. Strap on a pair of Silver/Pink Walking shoes by New Balance and get lost in over 40 acres of tulip fields during the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm Tulip Fest.
    5. Get wet and wild with Portland Kayak Company while navigating the waters with a guided Ross Island Tour.
    6. Go on a doggie date at a local fenced site such as Brentwood Park or run wild with your dog in a pair of Silver/Plum Running shoes by New Balance at an unfenced site such as Arbor Lodge Park.
    7. Flood your senses with the fabulous collection of flowers at the Portland Japanese Garden or sign up for the Spring Bloom Photography Class at Hoyt Arboretum and create a memorable album of the great outdoors.
    8. Slip on a pair of comfortable Mocha/Lime Suede Elise oxfords by Dansko and sip on some of the finest local wines while on a tour of the wine country.

    Turn off the TV, ignore the emails, and put your phone on silent!  Make some time to get in touch with nature and out of touch with technology.  We promise the experiences above will be beneficial to not only your individual health and wellness but that of your relationship with your significant other too.

  • How to Wear Flats in the Winter

    Flats are a sensible, yet sweet-as-pie pairing with cropped jeans, cotton capris, and sundresses during the summertime.  A classy cousin to the frumpy flip flop, flats make for a polished look no matter what the occasion. We have a great Pinterest Board that shows some great outfits: http://www.pinterest.com/jayswideshoe/winter-flats/.

    Winter, on the other hand, sends many flats into hibernation, stuffed in shoeboxes for safekeeping.  For who wants freezing feet when they can find shelter in a snug pair of boots?  But for you fashionistas, wearing boots everyday can become a bore; which is why it’s time you take those flats out for a spin this winter!  Check out these creative ways to wear flats while keeping those feet of yours cozy.

    1. Flats look fantastic matched with a pair of tights and tasteful skirt, the kind that stops an inch or two above the knee.  Match your bashful black flats with a pair of bold black tights for a mysterious monochrome look or play around with patterns placed discreetly on sheer tights.
    2. Feeling flirty?  Introduce your flats to a pair of trouser socks or knee socks.  Not to be confused with knee-high socks, these socks stop below the knees and paired with a skirt give an outfit a lustrous lady-like look.
    3. Get in touch with your wild side and wrap up those legs in layers for an artfully done-up look.  Mix and match a pair of trouser socks with a pair of complimentary colored tights and finish off with some foxy flats.
    4. Rumor has it that flats look not-so-fab with a long skirt, but the truth is the two go great together.  Just like wearing a pair of flats with dress pants, it’s all about the hem.  The length of a skirt or dress pants will make or break your look with flats so find a strong seamstress who knows your shape and style.

    All year round, every occasion, comfortable, cozy, and too coy to admit how cute they are, flats are the best purchase for your feet and for a girl with good taste!

  • What Portland Has to Offer

    While the rare sunny days here in Oregon come and go, us Portlanders have to take advantage of it anyway we can. Being outside and exercising is one great way we can do this. Portland is one of the greatest and most beautiful cities. However, I know I am guilty of not taking full advantage of it what the city has to offer.

    In Portland we have woods, rivers, beaches, trails, and roads to explore. According to travelportland.com, Hoyt Arboretum, in Washington Park, has over 12 miles of trails you can walk, and that’s only one part of Washington Park! Portland isn’t home to only one, but many different parks with hundreds of miles of trails and unforgettable scenery.

    If you aren’t trail runner than the paved waterfront loop is for you. The waterfront loop is around 3 miles long and has multiple entries between the Steele and Hawthorne bridges. Now we know that it isn’t always sunny outside and dressing for the occasion is vital to surviving the chilly Portland weather. Jackets, long sleeve thermal shirts, and a nice pair of waterproof running shoes are all a must.

    We have waterproof shoes that aren’t only nice feeling but nice looking too. After serving the greater Portland area for more than 30 years, we know by experience how important it is to have these essential waterproof pieces of clothing.

    Portland is a great city with beautiful features. Unless we get outside we won’t ever see them. Travelportland.com has multiple hikes, and trails to feed your venturous side. So get outside and see what Portland has to offer.

  • What are you thankful for?

    Thanksgiving is the one day each year we designate to think about all that we are grateful for. It is also the one day each year that we often ask at dinner tables for each person to say aloud what those things are. Due to this being an annual ritual and not a daily one, many of us compress all the wonderful things that have made us feel special, loved, safe, valued, or simply happy into all encompassing words such as family, friends, health, happiness, etc. What we often don’t share are the little things on a daily basis that people do that make us feel good, and perhaps without even knowing so, restore our faith in humanity. For example, the gas station clerk who asked how your day was when you were feeling down, the neighbor who helped you fix a household appliance when you hadn’t a clue, the customer who left you twice the tip you expected when you were tight on rent, or the fellow shopper who held the door open when your hands were full. While these small, simple things are not recommended to be shared all at once at Thanksgiving dinner, it is these random acts of kindness that poignantly remind us why we should not only be giving thanks more than once a year, but also giving back. So put a few coins in an expired parking meter and save someone a ticket, leave a copy of a good book you’ve read in a public place and provide a peaceful escape, offer to take a picture of a couple that they can frame and reminisce over, or stand up for someone who is being treated wrongly when they can’t find the words. Spend a short amount of time on a strong gesture and start giving back to the world all those things that will go unmentioned, but silently noted, at Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Shake Your Tail Feathers

    With Thanksgiving right around the corner, you may be hoping (maybe even looking) for something a little different to do this year. Well, you’re in luck! Here are our top 5 things to do in Portland on Thanksgiving Day that will be sure to put a pep in your step.

    1.  Come shake your tail feathers at the annual Turkey Trot at the Zoo on Thanksgiving Day.  The 4-mile run/walk, which winds through Washington Park and the Zoo, is a creative way to start your morning with the family.  Afterward, gobble-gobble up a snack at the Cascade Grill located within the Zoo and experience exotic exhibits, such as the Red Ape Reserve and Penguinarium, on our nation's most traditional holiday.  Costumes encouraged!

    2.  Opt for a feel-good morning dance workout at Conduit so you can enjoy the stuffing instead of feeling stuffed after Thanksgiving dinner.  The two-hour dance event encourages participants to forget all that jazz that gets their feathers in a ruffle and rather celebrate their good fortune by moving and grooving to the beat of the ‘drumstick’ on the dance floor.

    3.  Give thanks for all that you have at PROPER's 13th Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner at Celebration Tabernacle.  PROPER, a North Portland community enhancement organization, provides not only a cornucopia tasty food, including vegetarian options, but also serves up a platter of delicious multicultural music and storytelling for the whole community.  This event is also a great opportunity to give thanks by giving back to the community and volunteering!

    4. Instead of sitting around the dinner table telling yawn-inducing "When I was your age..." stories to your children, transport them back in time by treating them to a Turkey Day TV Dinner at The Original Dinerant this Thanksgiving.  At this 1950s and 60s inspired diner, feast on roasted turkey in a tray, with mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, caramelized brussel sprouts, and more.  Fill up after on freshly baked apple pie while watching the football game on one of the many TVs and your children will be giving lots of thanks for the retro adventure!

    5.  Get in the holiday spirit with a Thanksgiving dinner buffet cruising down the Willamette River on the Portland Spirit!  While this may not be the Mayflower, it will certainly be a memorable experience for the whole family in that it puts a new twist on the typical holiday tradition of eating at home.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view as fall slips slowly into winter.
