nothing like looking back at some photos from only a couple weeks ago and wondering how the last few months flew by so quickly. and it's not even summer that has escaped me. according to the calendar, it's almost october. i think i'm still trying to complete my july to-do list...slightly behind :P

taking an hour and a half detour on the way back from portland to stop at cannon beach was the best decision we've ever made. the oregon coast really is as beautiful as people say. we spent a few hours enjoying a relaxing picnic on the beach while people watching. it was a beautiful warm day, perfect for a simple maxi dress and floppy hat. although, i could barely hang onto my hat in such extreme winds! and an afternoon at the beach wouldn't be complete without a photo shoot (in my world anyway). although, photos can barely do the views enough justice. you must see it for yourself! next time we plan on staying beach front and venturing into portland on the way home, we just can't get enough! have you ever been to cannon beach?

hope everyone is having a great week. i've been a really bad blog friend lately, but I promise to pop by every one's sites this week to catch up! xo

  6. Omg..this is magical. Love all the pictures and hope I'll have something like you two have one day xxxx

  7. STUNNING photos Alicia!! Firstly, you look absolutely gorgeous in that dress, the couple shots of you walking on the I love the shots of you and your bf too, it looks like you had so much fun.
    I am shocked at how quickly time is flying by...I am with you, so behind! But it is important to just enjoy the ride, I guess :)

  8. That dress is incredible! I know, I have no idea where the time is going - my friend is already talking about Christmas plans!!!

  9. Aww, fun pictures! That dress looks gorgeous on you and goes perfectly with your floppy hat. I've been down the Oregon coast but never to Canon beach unfortunately!

  10. I've heard that this beach is amazing. And so close to where the Goonies was filmed!

  11. Okay, it's official. Portland is now on my list of must-visit place. Cannon Beach looks amazing- I've never thought of Oregon as somewhere with a picturesque coast, but clearly I was misinformed! And I just have to tell you how much I love all of your Bardot pieces. This dress is such a gem, as is your peach blouse. Is there anywhere in Vancouver that sells he line regularly? Or did it all come from sample sales? I must know, because if there is somewhere to buy it, I will be getting my hands on some ASAP :)

  12. Sean & i were just talking road trip ideas the other've sealed the deal with these stunners! Oregon it is! glad you took that detour and showed us the wonderfuls provided from it. lust for life is what, these photos and the two of you are simply smashing! xoox ♥

  13. I just went to Cannon Beach a few weeks ago too! It is a lovely beach. I love the coast here in Oregon! (A lot of it is new to me since I just moved here, to Portland). Love the photos! :)

  14. That beach is absolutely breath-taking! WOW! Amazing shots.

  15. omgoodness you are soo cute!! love all these pics! :)

  19. You have inspired me to take a detour on my road trip from Portland to Seattle. I so love these photos and hope that I have such beautiful weather.

    Any other Cannon Beach recommendations?

  20. These are often disguised and misleading, and can be also deceptive
    by creating a name very similar to a actual bank or traditional bank you are far better off
    in case you utilize a website that features a database of lenders that you can be matched with.
