For all my readers who celebrate, I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas yesterday. I myself spent my Christmas Eve sleeping in until noon and finishing my favorite book of all time, Anna and the French Kiss. My older sister came home for Christmas so we were all able to open presents together and watch Christmas movies – it was a lovely time.
Last week, my good friend Maggie from my sorority and I spent a fun day together in the Pearl District of Portland. A year ago, we went to Tea Bar, so we vowed to do the same again this holiday break. Funnily enough, you can read my post from exactly one year ago here.
For those who don’t know, Tea Bar is a wonderfully delicious tea place, serving yummy pastries and bubble tea. My go-to is the Lavender Bubble Milk Tea and the rose croissant. It’s not cheap though, be warned! Definitely a splurge treat.
Maggie and I weren’t the only ones having a photoshoot inside Tea Bar: practically every customer who came in had a DSLR strapped around their neck. It’s a pretty aesthetic place, I have to admit. I always joke that Tea Bar doesn’t need a social media marketing team, because their customers do the job.
After, Maggie and I walked around Portland to shoot some outfit pictures! The Pearl District is really beautiful and clean. It was freezing, but bloggers gotta blog.
I am positively obsessed with this ruffle-sleeve top. It’s from Banana Republic, and I just feel super cheery when I put it on. I had to pair it with my white jeans because regular jeans or black ones would be way too dark. And of course, a pair of slate grey booties!
After walking around the district, we decided to try going on a rooftop for a different perspective. We found a parking garage and went to the very top. The view was gorgeous!
And that’s a wrap! Have you been to Tea Bar? What pieces have you been donning this holiday break?
Thanks for reading, y’all. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for my 2017 wrap up!
