Following up from last weeks post about Pistills Nursery, some photos from our foggy day at Cannon Beach! We packed up the van and strayed from our road trip itinerary for a day spent at one of Oregons most popular beaches. In retrospect this was probably one of my favorite days of our road trip,…

Vintage Velvet Dress

I know I have mentioned it here before but I am a very big fan of thrifting and all things old + used + otherwise forgotten. I picked up the habit in high school and it seemed to stick as tradition while in college. My friends and I were at the local Goodwill almost weekly…
