Christmas Spirit


This was what I wore Sunday evening to go into downtown Portland with my family. It is one of our Christmas traditions to visit Santaland, see the Christmas tree, and have dinner at the Rock Bottom Brewery. When my brothers and I were little, we loved to ride the monorail, walk the outside of the building to see the 12 Days of Christmas displays in the store windows, and, of course, sit on Santa’s lap. Unfortunately, in 2005, Macy’s took over all of the Meier and Frank stores and the holiday traditions didn’t continue. My family and I still went downtown, walked around and had dinner.

I wanted to be festive, but not too dressed up so I layered a white cardigan with a floral applique over my cranberry red knit dress and topped it off with a fun headband.
