We got some nature up in here

My new backyard is next to a wooded walking area, which means we have a bit of a forest view. Though we’re only 2.5 miles from downtown Portland, it almost feels like we’re in some strange suburbany forest world. This is by far the most “country” place I have ever lived. We even saw a deer the other night (I almost lost my mind) and found a little deer poo in our backyard (Franklin ate it). I’m not sure how I feel about this; so much nature!

Anywho, I wore this outfit on Saturday night out to dinner with Ross. Before leaving, I decided to pose with all my trees. Judging from these photos I hadn’t yet adjusted my skirt – whoa there mini! I hope I pulled it down before leaving…

Black skirt: American Apparel
Blue top: some random store in Quebec City
Mustard cardigan: Forever21 (via SWAPmaine – it’s coming back!)
Flats: Zara
Necklace: vintage
Bracelet: vintage
Watch: Michael Kors

Last but not least, here is a dark, blurry photo of me jumping maniacally off a boulder.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
