stylista, jan 2014

My wardrobe has changed an awful lot since last year at this time. Like almost entirely because of the difference in size. So I'm learning how to purchase pieces that can mix and match more easily. I have a limited number of winter wear, so I'm layering a lot. Instagram is getting to see a glimpse into some of my favorite #girly outfits, so I'll link a few of them below :)

Jan 5: pulled together a out/groc look with layers against the cold and comfy stuff - knit citron shawl and spring forward socks. striped shirt, black button up and jeans from old navy. necklace from world market. and pinks on my eyes are nyx jumbo eye pencils with a cover girl jumbo gloss balm on the lips. simple but a comfy #girly look!
jan 6: I would enjoy this outfit a little more if the speckled one wasn't so silky and move around so much! I'm adjusting layers far more than I'd like to. but it is a fun color combo so I keep trying!
Jan 8: yoga-Kristine returns! #watchmedothis back to yoga-pilates after the break.
Jan 10: oops, I think I erred on the side of too-fancy for an impromptu lunch out. very comfy tho, this skirt/dress layers great with everything. shawl is Cladonia
Jan 11: took this pic especially for @emiliaguth who LOVES my affection & enthusiasm over my Joss shirt ;) #whedonesque #girly #kristine plus my Enchanting Temptress sweater and Coraline socks. and a bit of a funny perspective from holding the mirror.
Jan 12: the Kristine of today - grey shirt and floral print sweater; black cord skirt, leggings, and boots; and magrathea shawl with matching mamba necklace (tied long this time). confident and casual feeling for a downtown Portland outing of lunch, yarn pick up, spice store, and mall/other stores. #girly #kristine
Jan 13: yes, my shirt has a ball of yarn on it ;) from @twistedpdx + #austinhoodie and TDTU socks and @bama_ry jewelry. #kristine #girly

Common themes: comfy and cozy. always at least one handknit. layered textures and prints. Kristine-colors. favorite jewelry.

Do any of them seem more "kristine-y" than others? :)

Kristine rock

When me and my siblings were little, we would often drive to the beach. I wasn't a big fan of the long 2 1/2 drive on curvy car-sick-causing road with my many siblings, or getting sandy on the beach and driving home with wet clothes after dark. So one trip, my dad told us we were going to "Kristine Rock", giving it a special name to try and entice me to enjoy the trip. We made many trips after that to Kristine Rock, and even though the smell of beans for our traditional picnic lunch of Haystacks didn't set well with me, I felt special enough that I put up with it. Several trips, we rerouted the water flowing from the creek into the ocean, and then came back and found our new waterway had stayed where it was, so we switched it again. My siblings and I still call it Kristine Rock to this day.

Fogerty Creek
red dot is for kristine rock!

The actual location is Fogerty Creek, just south of Lincoln City, OR before you get to Depoe Bay, OR. There is a creek and depending on which side of the driveway you go in, you end up on either side of the creek and can climb on the rock from the south side.


I made E visit with me on one of our Anniversary trips - this is June 2007:

And on Christmas Day, I took my inlaws to visit. it was a beautiful December day. Clear sky, beautiful waves, and some great photo ops.

And many years later, I still feel special that my dad "named" the rock after me :)

...and that's the story!
