Sea Salt

Oregon Coast photos

"Sea salt soothes the soul"

Whenever the pressures of the city get too much, I love to escape to the Oregon Coast.  It's only a short drive from Eugene, where it was 95 degrees on Friday.  Florence was cool and breezy and the Pacific ocean displaying a beautiful summer color palette.  Have an easy week my friends!

Blue Hydrangea

blue hydrangea

In love with the blue hydrangeas in my backyard this year!  They seem to match perfectly with the blue, chambray, and turquoise colors that are so on point this season.  I couldn't resist styling the flowers in photos with this turquoise and blue print Sanctuary clothing blouse.  I also practiced some floral stillife photos, styling with a new Fiestaware plate.  The floral stills have a sort of moody look to them since I used a dark grey wood background, and took the photos towards the end of the day in a deeply shaded area of the backyard, up against a wooden fence.  I really wanted to bring out the deep blue of the flowers against the cool colored lower light background.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!  I've been working on few home decor projects, hope to share on the blog soon.  What fun projects have you been working on this summer?!

Boho Summer

Boho Summer Style

Gearing up for a warm sunny Oregon weekend and wanted to share some of my latest boho summer additions with you.  Took these pics over the past few weekends, and as you can see, the backyard roses are in full bloom!  Descriptions and shopping links below.

Kimono:  An easy addition to any summer outfit is an easy flowy kimono that can be thrown on over jeans or shorts.  The kimono I'm wearing pictured above is by Michael Stars scored from Miss Meers boutique in Eugene.  Online option for the perfect kimono here.

Boho sun hat:  Love this Michael Stars hat, it's perfect for keeping the sun rays off my face, great online option here.

Feather Journal:  Scored this beautiful feather print journal with blank pages online from UO.  Perfect for jotting down blog ideas on a summer afternoon.  Picked up these colorful pens and matching prop scissors as well.

Cotton woven throw blanket:  The black and white background in the photo above is my new woven cotton blanket, also from UO, perfect for laying out, or to use at an outdoor festival.

Instant Camera:  I scored my little white fujifilm instant camera at Shutterbug in Eugene, UO also carries the same one here.

Bison skull gold sculpture:  Love, love this addition, I've hung it up on the wall in my front room.  Decor mixed with a touch of gold or brass is so on point right now, and the style of this piece is so cool, avail from UO.
