What I love about my hometown just outside of Seattle is that I can get some peace and quiet. As much as I love to be shopping, dining and socializing, I also appreciate having some downtime.
I can get caught up in the drama that is my life pretty easily, but looking out at the Puget Sound calms me down. There's also something about my old stomping grounds that makes me feel so comfortable in my own skin.

Nothing says comfort more than a slightly over-sized sweater and a pair of satin-like pants. I love the way this knit sweater looks juxtaposed with my shiny joggers. Even thought it was a bit cold, I wore this sweater with nothing underneath to show a little (pale) skin.
While Portland does have just about everything, it's missing the expansive body of water that the Seattle area has. Looks like I'll just have to visit more often (which would be music to my mother's ears) to get some seaside serenity.
