Inside Out

You may think that the first day of summer is sometime in June (don’t make me look it up, all right?) but if you live in Portland you know that the summer doesn’t begin until after the 4th of July. For me, that means that I moved my boots and closed toe shoes, long sleeve tops and heavy denim to the guest bedroom closet. Then I got the Christmas-like fun of unveiling my summer shoes and clothes and moving them into my closet. That done, it’s now officially summer.

The advent of consistently warm weather means my thoughts turn to indoor/outdoor living. Not mine, of course, which is just fine, but to something a bit grander, more conducive to languid hours and a chilled cocktail. Here then are just a few ‘backyards’ where I could happily wile away the summer.

Inquiring minds want to know...the "end of the season" clothes sales start around the first of July here. Do they start rolling out Fall clothes in your area just a couple of weeks after the weather turns warm?

I am so agreeing with you here and living in the PDX area, too. I haven't bought any summer clothes in ages, because it's always such a surprise to see them again after our over-long fall/winter/spring/rainy season!

Good question, Kathy! I don't do much hopping anymore but I don't think the sales will start until the end of July. August is when the fall stuff hits the store.

Welcome Gretchen! I'm still getting used to it as we loved in UT for 10 years. I have numerous adorable sleeveless tops but wore my first one today because we hit 90. I doubt the rest will see the light the rest of the summer. Still, I'll take cool over HOT anytime!
