Wide open spaces

 Today's outfit for wine tasting at Portland's Willamette Valley was inspired by People Style Watch's July 2013 issue:

 Tank - TJ Maxx
Pants - Rock Republic for Kohl's
Booties - Juicy Couture
Earrings - Forever 21
Bracelets - Bauble Bar

Day 2 in Portland, Oregon was dedicated to Wine Tasting in their up and coming Willamette Valley with over 150 wineries and growing. They specialize in Pinot Noirs.  We booked a private tour with where our guide was extremely educated in wine making, local wineries and everything that has to do with grapes. To truly enjoy the entire day and keep our taste pallets intact we paced ourselves and tasted either very slowly or split tastings and had an amazingly peaceful and fun day.

 My friends had the cutest sash and a tiara for me so everyone knew it was my big 4-0 birthday!

And you got to love this..... The birthday Card my friend got where she personalized it with our names on the cover:

 After a long day of wine tasting we hit the hotel for a quick change and hit the road again for more adventure....

 Crisply brussel sprouts and cauliflower...


 After two rounds of cocktails we felt brave enough to tackle the walk over the burnside road and the bridge towards south east part of the town back to the sketchy area to find this famous meat and cheese restaurant....

Walking on the bridge next to major traffic!

Crossing over the I-5 Freeway!
