our adventure to Crater Lake

last weekend we took a spontaneous trip to Crater Lake. after living in Oregon for over 7 years, it was about time we made the adventure! it’s about a 2 hour drive from Bend and perfect for a day trip. at 36 weeks pregnant, it’s hard to know how much time we’ll have left for adventuring before this babe arrives, so we packed up a lunch and headed out mid morning.

I’d always pictured going to the lake would be just that. you show up, take a few photos and go home. I had no idea that you could take the 33 mile drive around the lake in it’s entirety, while taking in each stop and lookout along the way. so we spent the entire day exploring. and the views are breathtaking. these pictures just don’t even do it justice. we’ve had quite a few wildfires this summer so it was a bit of a bummer that we didn’t catch it on a super clear and sunny day, but you could still see how incredibly blue the water is.

if you’ve got an opportunity to make it to Crater Lake, I highly recommend. it’s one of those natural wonders that is just so magical, it should be on everyone’s bucket list.

pajar boots

pajar rain boots

while living in Portland, rain boots were essential. I had a few different pairs but I was always on the lookout for more stylish and affordable boots. these brights from Pajar are wonderful. I just love that red!

and now that I’m living in Bend, snow boots are my every day winter essential. I’ve got the old fasioned clunky ones that I wear when it’s icy and a shearling pair for super cold days. Pajar has a lovely collection of winter boots, too. here’s a few great ones I spied.

Guatemalan inspired textiles from Archive New York

Vintage Guatemalan Inspired Textiles + Pillows from Archive New York | Unruly Things

I just adore these pillows from Archive New York, created by textile designer Amira Marion. she recently launched two beautiful collections : a digital collection in which she prints replications of vintage fabric fragments on to silk and a woven collection in which she worked with non-profit Maya Traditions and local Guatemalan weavers to recreate some traditional woven textiles. swoon, right?! see both collections here.

currently coveting : fall arrivals at Myth & Symbol + 15% off!

myth & symbol | drawing by Chau Nguyen for Unruly Things

like I said, I’m totally not ready to start talking Fall BUT with new arrivals this good, I just have to share. Myth & Symbol is one of my all-time favorite spots to haunt for brands like Ace & Jig, Black Crane, Rachel Comey and Ilana Kohn, to name a few. Chau asked me to pick my favorites from the latest arrivals and she illustrated them, just for Unruly Things. how amazing are these?!

I’m loving the Ace & Jig Peasant Mini dress, those Odette snake studs {seriously – swoon!} and that Lauren Manoogian shawl. the perfect outfit, perhaps paired with these Dieppa Restrepo booties. I could live in it all season long.

bonus – from today until Monday August 11, take 15% off your entire order with code UNRULY. perfect excuse to get that fall wardrobe started.
