In the last couple of years Oak + Fort has become one of my favorite brands. While it is stylish, I think the part that appeals to me the most is the comfort. At first glance, rarely anything looks flattering on me because it is all oversized. Interestingly enough, it’s the thing that I love the most about it. I grew up with much of the clothing around me having to be “tight” and “fitted” as per what was trendy at the time, but it never fit my personal style. I’ve had this oversized brown sweater dress for over a year, but it’s one of my favorite things because I can literally toss it on and go.
Fun fact: It’s also very warm so it’s perfect for a night out in the summer or through the fall and winter seasons.
Earlier this year, I shared a quick snippet of my birthday at McDonald’s which was glorious! However, that wasn’t the only celebrating we did. Before McDonald’s, we headed to my first Omakase ever. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of it, but never had the occasion to try it. I can get by with some simple sashimi and a few rolls usually! My birthday felt like an opportune time to try this out so I took this recommendation from an Instagram friend of mine and went to [OMA San Francisco Station.] It hadn’t been open for long, but we recommend still making a reservation. They accommodate eight seats and a few times that they serve per day so walk-ins are tough.
It was a different feeling receiving each piece of nigiri one at a time. Since the price is steep and the pieces are minimal, I was worried about being hungry afterwards. Obviously, that quickly diminished as I got to the end of the meal and realized that you can order extra when the Omakase is done. It was nice to be able to savor each piece as it was crafted by our chef and to spend these moments enjoying the meal in a way I hadn’t experienced before.
We had such a great time for my birthday that we actually went back for a second time to celebrate Kevin’s. These photos are from both occasions! It’s important to note that their menu has four different categories which include different price points and amounts of Nigiri. Each time, we chose the Nozomi, which includes 12 pieces of Nigiri and one Temaki for $85. While I haven’t tried other Omakases in the city, I have heard that this price and the quality is a great deal!
Everyone here knows that I was introduced to my first Pendleton back in 2012 and I haven’t stopped talking about it since. It was the nicest gift that I ever received from blogging and the warmest thing that I own. I know this Air Jordan with the Pendleton print doesn’t look all that appealing, but that’s not what we’re doing for here. I’m all about the Pacific Northwest pride and as clunky as this sneaker is, we’re all about it. Nike Jordans and Pendleton are the ultimate Pacific Northwest collab coming out of Oregon.
A release of these is slated for November and will be going for $200 USD. Readers, would you wear these? How would you style them with your other Pacific Northwest belongings?
It’s interesting for me to see clips of “Sesame Street” now in 2019 because I have so much context and general life experience, but I often wonder how I would have grasped ideas like this as a kid. Watching this clip now, they graze over the idea of “drug addiction” without actually saying it. Is it because it’s just enough information that viewers will discuss it with their parents afterwards? This leads me to become even more fascinated by the producers and those that create the content of the show. Regardless, these are important things to discuss. Growing up, I did have peers that faced difficult home lives and obviously they weren’t discussed often, but there were subtle clues that you didn’t know how to ask about or you did and had to tread those waters when you got there.
This isn’t the first time I’ve shared “Karli’s” story on Yow Yow! but even through a tough upbringing, she’s such a positive light. I’m loving her story line and appreciate how much it is resonating with viewers.
It’s not confirmed yet that she’ll be Catwoman, but if we’re following the comics correctly, that’s basically what is going to happen. We couldn’t think of anyone more perfect to fill this role than Zoë. As Bonnie in the last two seasons of “Big Little Lies,” I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what her next big role would be. She will star opposite of Robert Pattison in the upcoming The Batman film with a slated release of June 25, 2021.
I know we’ve spent what feels like the last month covering Fashion Week so I won’t drag this any longer, but we couldn’t not cover Bridal. Elynn recently brought me along with her as she tried on her first wedding dresses and the experience has completely changed my perspective. Dresses that I thought I’d love, I’d now say no to. There were some dresses that I never thought would be my style, but would now be open to trying. The tip? Try everything. Try what you know you will love and even those that you think you might not love because you honestly don’t know until you have it on. I’ll be sharing more details about my experience with Elynn soon, but for now, here are all of my favorite looks! It’s also surprising to see how my tastes have changed even from !
If seen from afar, you wouldn’t even be able to tell that these were made out of crochet! Since we’ve had Yow Yow, these are some of the posts I love sharing. Growing up, all of my toys came from the toy store and nowhere else. Everything was plastic and like every other toy my friends would own. Pieces like these tug at my heart strings though. They are so unique and made with a certain kind of care that you just can’t find at a store. While I think these would make for interesting pieces in a home, I imagine that they’d be even more delightful for a child who dreams of being a future baker and coming up with their own creations out of these.
I’m in love with Kate Jenkins’ designs and if you love these, you can view more on her [Instagram].
