make-believe: oregon coast afternoon

July 28, 2014

If there’s one thing that nursing a tiny infant affords you, it’s plenty of forced downtime. And while I admit to sometimes whiling away this time trolling instagram for longer than I should, generally, I allow myself to enjoy a good little daydream. Lately, all I can think about is last summer’s trip to the Oregon coast.

If I had a spare hour or two to myself and was lucky enough to find myself back in Falcon Cove, I’d scoot down to the beach for a little reading, a little beach stone collecting, and plenty of breathing in that Pacific Ocean air. And in my daydream, I also have:

1. a sweatshirt for staying cozy | 2. bobby pins for wrangling beach-blown wispies | 3. a lidded jar for sneaking a single serving of rosé | 4. a good beach read for getting lost in | 5. a cozy beach blanket for lounging on | 6. summer sneaks for navigating the rocky parts | 7. cut offs with deep pockets for tiny treasures

    This is lovely. Now I absolutely have to get to the beach on my next trip to the Pacific Northwest—and you've given me a source for my next outdoor blanket to boot. Thanks!

    I love those blankets! Not tacky, like most beach blankets, and perfect to keep in the car.

    The sweater/shorts/shoes combination looks perfect for cool beachy evenings.
