A Day at the Beach, an Outfit Post with a Twist


It's been a busy two weeks for us so things have been a little quiet on the blogging front. I have had the most amazing coast vacation with my sweetie. Will and I travelled to Long Beach on the Washington coast for a weekend celebration of our 5 year anniversary of dating. We totally lucked out with the weather and it was sunny for our entire stay!

On Monday we had a very secluded picnic on the beach. I decided to wear my new Vanilla & Lace dress with some Hunter rain boots. We drove up Long Beach a little ways, outside of the touristy area and found beach access which you can drive out on. Yes, that's right: in Washington you can drive on the beach. I kept feeling like we were doing something wrong and Will had to keep telling me to stop worrying. We parked our car and set out a picnic and there was no one around!

I wore my Hunter rain boots, although it did not rain our entire visit, it did help cover my ghostly white legs!

You may want to lean in a sec because I have secret to share with you....

I am engaged....

to this amazing man!

Isn't my ring beautiful?! Will did an amazing job and I love it so much, but not as much as love the idea of being married to my best friend...

...so excited that I had to jump for joy...

....and do a little dance!

Outfit Details: dress- Vanilla & Lace; cardigan-Target; boots- Hunter; sunnies, Target; earrings- We Dream in Colour;
1920's Art Deco-Edwardian Engagement ring-from my love.

For everyone that has sent us congratulations and well wishes, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are so happy to share this exciting news with you and your support means so much to us. We are really looking forward to this next chapter in our lives. My heart feels so full now that I will be promising to share the rest of my life with the most amazing man and my best friend, William.
