We had THE perfect Oregon coast beach weather, we got really lucky. I brought quite a few clothing options but luckily got to wear the nice-weather ones. Which included this dress, seriously one of my faves ever. Made it a couple years ago now and it's definitely just one of the most wearable, easy-cute summer dresses I've owned. Guess that means I should make more that are sort of like it!
Got to wear it walking around Downtown Seaside, one of our fave places to go. Love the pedestrian-friendly layout of the downtown area leading up to the boardwalk.
I also rocked my new hat for quite a lot of the trip. I'm pretty late to the fedora trend, but I really like this one! This is super new for me, so I experimented wearing it with several different outfits! Yellow jeans one day, homemade dress the next... hope it worked ok. I have a huge head, too, so usually hats off the rack don't fit. But Forever 21 had about 15 different styles I swear, and this one fit the best.
P.S. Sorry for the blue, shady hues of all the pics... sunny day = harsh shadows and I don't know how to make that look good in a photo. But, check out the coolness of my new lens!
(Hey, that reminds me... anyone have any tips for taking quality pics in full sun? Know of any great posts or tutorials?)
