Spontanenous adventures are my favorite and serve as proof that you should just go with the flow of the universe. I had awesome plans for last Saturday night which were randomly foiled that morning. Luckily, the universe had different plans for me, namely a completely spontaneous photo adventure to the coast where the Dune series was inspired. (Don't be fooled by the dresses and lipstick, I am a giant geeked out nerd for life). This is what I look like when you give me 30 minutes to go from gross slob to blog ready:
*Vintage 1950s home-sewn top: thrifted
*Vintage belt: Kitsch, Eugene Or.
*My trusty boots from forever ago
*Betsey Johnson dress worn as skirt from years ago
The dunes themselves.
After traversing the dune above, this is the view:
I love the wild, timeless and almost savage feeling I get at all along the Oregon coast. Best of all is the sound of the waves beating out every other worry or thought in your mind.
*Vintage 70s "saddle bag": Red Light, Portland, Or. (I promise to feature it again)
I just wanted to show off my manicure because I adore hot pink to the bottom of my baddass core.
Mostly I had fun using pictures from the day to create animated gifs:
If you know me, then you know for a fact that I loooove to frolic and I do mean literally FROLIC:
Me pretending to flash the ocean (actually showing off the button-up back of this shirt since I was proud to accomplish the feat by myself.)
*Cardigan: free pile, Portland. (Ideally I woulda worn a black or gray one but as I do not own one and threw this outfit together at the last minute...)
And then there was evening's main event, the sun's glorious descent into the horizon:
(fyi: no photoshop manipulation)
I hope you've enjoyed this post-- I do believe that me and my tripod are about to become very close this summer since I have so many more adventures and journeys already in the works or Melina-dream-machine. Any body else starting the summer off with a spontaneous burst of fun?
