Astoria

Photobucket

We went out to Astoria to celebrate our anniversary, my brother has a house out there, and the coast really isn't that far away! Having grown up here with the mountains, snow, rivers, desert, forest, and ocean just a drive away, I forget how cool it is all this is always within reach.

Saturday we went to a WWII encampment, but more on that later. The rest of the time we just hung out, shopped a little, went to The Flavel House, and got beat at munchkin by my nine year old nephew.

Every outfit and accessory is simply fantastic! I love how they all draw from the same general colour palette and look so coordinated through these charming snapshots.

Being an East Coaster, my initial response to the post title was "like in QUEENS?" Which is where I was a few weekends ago. This looks so much more idyllic.

Anushka said...

I am incredibly jealous! Being a Goonies fan (and an overall beach town fan) I have always wanted to go to Astoria.

And as usual, your outfits are too cute!

Happy Anniversary! And...that seersucker dress. I'm a sucker for anything seersucker (did you see what I did there? Good.) and, even better, the style of the dress is SO CUTE! I'll make myself one. Eventually. Hopefully. :)
