Earth Day: Our Eco-Fashion Picks!

Happy Earth Day, everyone! Whether you chose to walk to work (I did!) or simply took a 5 minute shorter shower, every little bit helps! But why should Earth Day and the Green Movement be only about the act of reducing? Maybe we should start splurging on the “right” pieces! From organic cotton to locally made in the USA (lower transport costs… yes, please!), there are so many great brands to choose from. We’ve put together a special Eco-Fashion Collection just to celebrate today!

ecofashion Earth Day: Our Eco Fashion Picks!

The hottest piece out there right now is the Prairie Underground Forties Coverall. The soft, organic cotton is practically like wearing your pajamas! It is so easy to dress up or down with a simple swap of footwear and accessories. Plus – POCKETS! Now you’ll never lose those pesky lip gloss tubes. If you’re more of a patterns girl, Hard Tail makes the oh-so-versatile Hard Tail Long Skinny Tee in a variety of patterns and colors!

If you’re looking to go all out this Earth Day, the ecoSkin line is fully dedicated to sustainable fashion. Most eco-conscious brands stick to producing basics, but ecoSkin has several unique pieces like the Hamilton Dress pictured above. How cute would this look with the Betsy and Iya Leather Bangles and the 49 Square Miles Clingy Wallet Last but certainly not least – beauty products! Both Butter London and Scotch Naturals are great alternatives to traditional chemical-filled nail polish. There are so many shades of pastels to get you in the mood for spring! Butter London even has a delish selection of lippy!

photo 4 1 900x1200 In Store Customer of the Month   Michele R. (Michele is wearing the Hudson Signature Jean Jacket in Rise, the Jack by BB Dakota Cayleen Skirt, and the Calou Astrid High Heel Clog)

Q: How did you first hear about Adorn?
A: I actually love Prairie Underground and bought my first piece in Bend, OR. I looked to see local places where I could find more and up popped Adorn.

Q: What do you love the most about Adorn?
A: I love the selection of Prairie, the staff, and their care to help you try and find what you like and even suggest things you might never have tried. I love the vibe of the store –  approachable.

Q: What is your favorite Adorn piece?
A: Well, of course, my Prairie pieces, but especially my new forties coveralls…just perfect.

Q: A trend you are loving for this Spring?
A: Coveralls of all types.

Q: If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it look like?
A: You probably thought I would say coveralls or Prairie, but actually I would pick my lululemon leggings, black Soprano tank, cardigan and a beanie. It is my go to outfit and I fill comfortable and most like myself.

Q: Where do you get you style inspiration?
A: I would say my inspiration is varied. Really urban/street/people watching. I notice details/pieces on others and tweak them to my taste. I like to blend basics with a pop of color or artistic flair.

Q: What is a brand you’d love to see at Adorn?
A: I’m not really a brand girl, that I could tell you the name of the pieces in my outfit above is only because I looked at the labels. I like Adorn because they offer a diverse look, I love angles, interesting takes on pieces, local designers as well as current trends, so keep doing what your doing, I always find something I love.

Want to be our next customer of the month? Stop by the shop and try anything on and let us snap a pic! You’ll be posted to our “Wall of Adornable Customers” and uploaded to Facebook so everyone can see how fab you look. Remember to share it on your own wall and you’ll be entered into the running to become our next customer of the month. In addition to all the fame, you’ll also get a $100 gift card to Shop Adorn, a 30 minute personal style consultation, and a blog all about YOU!

Maxi Dress Madness!

We know you hard working women on the go are always desiring something easy, but still fashionable. This year, we think your go-to piece for spring and summer is going to be the maxi dress. Put one of these babies on and BAM, you’ve got an instant outfit. Just make sure you pop on some accessories or light layers if it’s still a little brisk out there. Our shop is full of fabulous spring/summer maxis, some more of a classic that you could easily layer into your fall and winter wardrobe, others that are bright and lightweight for the warmer days. Enjoy these outfits we put together at our Portland Boutique. Not local? All pieces are available online too!

bobi maxi e1397783971852 900x1200 Maxi Dress Madness!

This Bobi maxi is buttery soft and has an overlap v-neckline and adjustable straps. Pair it up with a thin belt if you want a more structured look, or go a little more whimsy with a Kut from the Kloth blouse tied at the waist. Styled here with a Lulu Jewelry necklace.

CT chacha black maxi e1397784048343 900x1200 Maxi Dress Madness!

This adorable maxi sold out super fast last year, so we thought we’d bring it back in classic black! Yes ladies, it is OKAY to wear black in the spring and summer, just add some pops of color to brighten up your look! Styled here with a Hudson denim jacket, Subtle Luxury scarf, Grayling Jewelry necklace, and Yosi Samra ballet flat.

CT chacha maxi e1397784104497 900x1200 Maxi Dress Madness!

Yes, this is the same Charlotte Tarantola maxi, but in a muted olive green! Again, we see this as a perfect “seasonless” maxi that you can combine with plenty of layering pieces when needed. Styled here with a Roost necklace, Shiraleah tote, and Betsy & Iya Bridge Cuff.

MS maxi e1397784150925 900x1200 Maxi Dress Madness!

You’ll love the softness and the flattery of the diagonal and horizontal stripes that meet at the waist. Stripes have a way of elongating and defining your amaze silhouette. Again, pair this with a belt, or leave it off and just allow the elastic waistband to fall where it feels most comfortable on you. Although, for an elongated/slimming look (I mean, who doesn’t want that?), it should be close to the smallest part of your waist.

If you didn’t know, we now carry a very rare Swedish shoe brand called Calou Shoes! These black leather booties with a wooden sole go with EV-ER-Y-THING! Don’t forget an adorable Subtle Luxury scarf and Selen Design jewelry to polish off your outfit!

Want some more outfit inspo? head over to our special occasion outfits section to get ready for all of those memorable events coming up!

Spring 1 620x526 Fun and Fabulous Easter Outfits

1. Polished and Flirty. “Wrap dress”, “comfortable, and “adorable” are basically all synonyms if you ask me! And you definitely can’t go wrong with this Tart Collections Marie Dress. Thow a cami underneath, some supportive heels, a statement piece, and you’re ready to go. As always, a pop of color is perfect for any neutral outfit—and This Ollipop Aurora Navette Jewel Ring in Jade is just- perfect! This beautiful hue emulates the beautiful spring buds blossoming all around us this time of year…Why aren’t you rocking it with all of your spring wardrobe again?

2.) Comfortable AND Chic! Not a dress person? Or maybe you are, but have a row of ducklings to chase after during your Easter festivities. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! These Prairie Underground Cigarette Leggings are comfortable, but sophisticated at the same time. Pair them with some strappy shoes, a flowy polka dot blouse, and a monochromatic watch and you’re in business. If this outfit doesn’t scream spring, we don’t know what does!

3) Sweet and Quirky. This girlish Pendleton Portland Collection McKenzie Bridge Skirt is sure to give you a fresh and pretty look. Paired with these light-weight and comfortable Calou Fia Boots, the outfit takes a turn for quirky and sweet. Try dressing this outfit up with some delicate gold details like pictured above. If the weather is not being quite as delicate, throw a cardigan on, and you will be picture perfect!

4) Casual Cute. The romper isn’t going anywhere ladies! This Pendleton Portland Collection Champoeg Romper is both shapely and put-together. Pair with a gauzy scarf, some close toed wedges, and accent earrings. We love how this pair brings out the mint green in the scarf. This would also pair beautifully with a skinny brown belt to bring attention to the smallest part of your body. Don’t be afraid to pair more “formal” jewelry with casual pieces. This can really dress up an outfit and take it from blasé to exciting!

We hope you have enjoyed this Easter Outfit ideas. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, there’s nothing wrong with being the most fashionable (and comfortable) girl in down this season, is there?
