PNW Blog: Life in Idaho

I am back in Portland after a week in Southeast Idaho. It was literally below freezing, sub zero temperatures. (I didn't pack for that...) but I do love the high dessert cold, it's so dry that it can be bearable. However, the snow would not form into any shape, it was like sand!! Portland snow wins as the best kind of snow. :)
Anyways, it is my fiance's last semester!!! Wooo! It's been a long 2 years of of plane rides, skype dates, and letters, but he's almost finished with his masters! Here are some photos from my time in Idaho the last few days. I went to Idaho with an open creative mind, I ended up accomplishing a ton. I am SO, so, so excited for what's to come with my space here at Jade Rose Blog.  I can't wait to share it with all of you! Make sure you subscribe to the blog to find out!

I was running errands with my better half on a rather grey day (oh Portland) when the sun decided to peak out for a few moments but then shyly escape back behind the clouds. (See portlandia skit here, it's so true!) You'll notice the first few photos show the hint of sun and by the last photo it was grey and cold again. But alas, my grey induced outfit for running errands :) 
I'll be the first to admit that I wear these skinnies all too often (see herehere and here) but they are so comfy! 

What do your favorite pair of pants look like?!

What I Wore: Sequin Sweatshirt

On New Years Day I felt it only appropriate to start the new year off with a festive sparkly piece, my go to glitz is this comfy sweater from H&M! With my fiance still in town for another week, we have taking advantage of our time in between our to-do lists to have mini adventures. 
The first day of the year was actually sunny in Portland (!) so we ventured out into the cold and found a spot near the Columbia River where we could trot around on some train tracks. He began to snap pics for me (he's the master mind behind the best photos on this blog) and then we heard a loud horn.... and screaming around the corner much closer than we expected was a giant train!! I say giant, but really it was a normal sized train, they just look giant when they are that close!!! Needless to say, our mini adventure was cut short as we quickly jumped off the tracks and admired its power race past us. :)
Heeled Booties: Thrifted, Clarks. Chmabray: Thrifted, GAP. Oxblood Skinnies: H&M. Sequin Sweatshirt: H&M. Wool Coat: Urban Outfitters.


Best Christmas Present

My fiancé and I celebrated our Christmas a few days before the 25th to ensure time for ourselves with peace and quiet. We both bought each other amazing gifts... but my favorite of all?! You'll find out below ;)
I wore my classic outfit of black and white (outfit photos to come later that are not blurry)!

And my Christmas present?! In addition to my ring dish which is a beautiful class canoe, (see why here) he also wrapped up a little globe with a heart around a specific location.... 

We're going to Hawaii baby!!!
