vacation outfit, oregon outfit, beach outfit, denim shorts

The goal of our vacation was to chill and clear our minds for a bit, so I kept my outfits really low-key. Most of what I’m wearing in this picture are pieces that I wore nonstop through the trip. I lived in my cutoffs and the cardigan was necessary for the cooler coast weather. I’m also wearing my MVS (Most Valuable Sandals) of the summer. I purchased these right before I went home and I’m so glad I brought them along. The style is simple, so it pairs well with pretty much everything. On top of that, they’re very comfortable. They were truly tested this summer as I did a lot of walking around, and I even hiked in them during this trip.

I just had to include this shot of my lovely mom. My siblings and I were snapchatting a lot during the trip, and my parents got a kick out of watching our stories each day. My dad even had us download Snapchat on his phone. I asked him if he planned to start snapping and he said he just might! Haha, I can’t even!

  2. Ha! The fact that you father downloaded Snapchat makes me now feel like I am so behind — I am not even on it at all, lol. But, who knows perhaps I will cave in. Love your relaxed look and I’m sure the MVS made it all the more comfortable. :)

  3. I had a very similar mantra on my last vacation. It was all about recharging and simple outfits fit the bill perfectly. Love the photo of you and your mom- so sweet!

    Your dad is too cute. I don’t even have Snapchat! It seems like more and more people are using it though.
