Printed Maxi Dress at Cannon Beach

For our 6 year anniversary, Kirill and I went on a little family road trip to Oregon (we brought Lady with us too!). Our first stop was Cannon Beach, where I wore my sheer brushstroke printed maxi dress. There’s just something about wearing a dreamy maxi on the beach, and I knew the colours of this one would be perfect for the location.

Oregon has been on my list for a while now. I went once when I was 12 or 13 and didn’t remember much. It’s nice going back to places you went as a kid, the experience is so different as an adult. You appreciate it more … who wasn’t a brat when they were a kid? Having Lady there was the cherry on top. As much as I love travelling she’s the thing I miss the most when I’m not home, and she got so excited being in new places. It was adorable AF.

The first time I went to Cannon Beach I remember not being very impressed. Even though it was August, it was really cold. I guess bratty teenage me was expecting a tropical beach. This time I loved it. Haystack Rock is quite a sight and makes the beach look amazing. It’s a lot bigger and more dramatic IRL, you can see its top as you drive into town. Plus, the sand is super soft and light. The water was still freezing. I only went in waist deep for a few minutes and my toes got numb, but the views make up for that. There’s a light mist around Haystack Rock that gives the whole beach a very dreamy, surreal feel.

We only stayed for a few hours because we were behind schedule and didn’t want to arrive in Portland too late. After driving through the big highway in Washington State we had to go through a bunch of smaller roads. Once we got to town the parking situation was bad. The town itself is tiny (it doesn’t even have a gas station!) and made up of a bunch of awkward little streets. But once we got down to the beach it was so worth it. It was just what we needed after a long day on the road – we left home at 6am and arrived at Cannon Beach around 3pm.

Are there any places you’ve revisited as an adult or would to like to revisit?

      Thanks Rita! As much as I hate to admit it it’s slowly ending up here in the Northern hemisphere so you’ll get it soon 🙂

    You literally look like a model in these photos. You look beautiful and your poses are so on point– may have to be one of my favorites, this post. I’ve always wanted to see portland! but if its a place I revisited, it would have to be Israel– very different going with your fam and staying at your grandmother’s house, as opposed to living there at 19, on your own–exploring wherever you want.

    You look so gorgeous in this dress and with those big shades! I love light maxi dresses for the summer, so stylish and comfortable at the same time. I’m glad you enjoyed the beach, I would also hate it if it’s cold, doesn’t match the scenario 😀
