Portlandia Day One

I flew up to Portland, Oregon last week for a little visit of that fair city. It was kismet that the weather was cool enough for me to wear my new horse sweater on a day I ended up spotting tiny horses on the streets of Portland! Seriously, one of my favorite streetart sightings ever. These little toy horses were tied to old iron horse rings throughout the city by artist Scott Wayne Indiana. They're so cool and very fitting for my blog title--I'm tempted to continue the horse project in my own neighborhood!

  1. horses, everywhere! how lovely and adorable :) I'm leaving for Portland on Monday, this post has sparked some extra excitement for me! I hope you're enjoying your time there :)

  2. This is such a cool idea, I'm going to check this 'horseproject' :)
    If you have moment I would be delighted to know what you think of my last post: http://goldielondon.blogspot.com/2011/08/christian-dior-retrospective.html
    Have a nice day

  3. I lived in Portland for six years, and I really loved spotting these horses all over the city. There was one in front of the last house I lived in before moving!

    Love your socks and oxfords combination!


  4. What a cute little discovery! And, you're right, perfect for your blog and your sweater!

  5. Love the socks! I'm always worried that ankle socks will make me look even shorter, but you are rocking it and I know you are a shortie too! Maybe I will give it a try once the weather cools a bit. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Those horses are unbelievably sweet! Your top is lovely too, so many cute horses! Hope you had an amazing trip xo

  7. Cute sweater! I have a similar top that I picked up from F21 a while back, and it's so fun to wear. The horse project sounds pretty cool. My husband knows Scott Wayne Indiana, and is a big fan of his art projects. Very creative guy!

  14. Scott Wayne Indiana was my high school geometry teacher!

  15. haha, i know the person said this above me, but he was my high school geometry teacher too. that is his "stage name" so to speak. his real name is scott buchanan. you can find his website here: http://www.39forks.com/

  16. @Risa & madizon anderzon, that cracks me up to no end! My sister just interviewed a street artist in her city and it was the last person you would think spray-painting the streets. :)

  17. Your horse print sweater is just adorable and will be perfect for fall! I love the shoes too. Really cool look and fun little horse toys too!

    Also - major love for your sweater and shoes. The fall is in the air)


  19. Welcome to my city! If you need any good pointers on eats and shopping in the City of Roses, I am your gal.


  20. I used to live in Portland and this post has me missing it so much! I never realized all the little horse toys around town were all done by one person, I assumed it was a clever joke that had caught on years ago

  21. I love that horse sweater. I might have to pick one up for myself. It's amazing.
