Beach Cottage Dreams on the Oregon Coast

June 21, 2014
My husband and I just got home from a fabulous week in Oregon.  After our fun weekend in Portland, we spent five days exploring the Oregon coast.

We rented this adorable beach cottage at Olivia Beach in Lincoln City!  

A great place to unwind and reconnect.

Love this man so much!

Wearing Gap skinnies, Converse sneakers, striped breton tee from Old Navy, and a H&M cardi.

There’s nothing quite like sipping coffee on the porch of a beach cottage and enjoying the ocean breeze.

I adore all the little beachy decorating touches!
Distressed skinnies, Roxy leopard sneakers, and this cozy Old Navy sweater made a perfect beach combing outfit.
Beach silliness.

Sunset over the Pacific.
Dune buggy-ing adventure in the sand dunes of North Bend.
So many pretty lighthouses and gorgeous beaches!
Enjoyed yummy clam chowder and this pretty Wyland wall in the fishing village of Newport. 

Yes, I wore my all white ensemble from this post!  It was perfect for a dinner out at an amazing seafood restaurant, Kyllo’s.

How cute are these seahorse earrings I picked up at an art gallery? I even got to meet the woman who made them, Linda Cline (

I also did some bargain hunting at the Tanger outlet mall in Lincoln City.  Love this Ann Taylor Loft sweater I got for a steal!  

Relaxing by the fire … beach cottage heaven.

Another shot of the gorgeous Oregon coast. 

We had such a wonderful trip!  But as always, it’s good to be home.  We sure did miss our furbabies while we were away!

Hope you all are having an amazing June!
Can’t wait to catch up on my blog reading!

    That beach cottage looks lovely! I have always loved porches but we don't have them here in Germany. We either have a front garden but without a porch and a back garden with a terrace. Seems you had a fabulous time!
    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog, I really appreciate them!

    Thank you so much for sharing these vacation photos, dearest Dawn!! I can just imagine what a fun time you both must have had (if that mid-air pic of you on the beach is any indication!!) My hubby and I – together with his mom and step-dad – rented a cottage in Seal Beach, California for one week last summer; I absolutely LOVED it!! XO

      It's so fun to stay right by the beach! We only live a half hour drive away from Santa Cruz, but still … staying right there on the beach is just lovely! Thanks as always for your sweet comments! I always look forward to hearing from you, dear!

    I love the Oregon Coast. My husband and I took a very long RV trip several years ago and stayed at several towns along there. I love Lincoln and Cannon Beach and Newport….all of it. So rugged and picturesque.
    Thanks for sharing your photos!

      Isn't the Oregon coast so pretty? I wish we had gotten to Cannon Beach. Next time for sure! Hope your hubby had a fab bday!

    You two are just so lovely. I am glad you had fun. Vacation is always nice and relaxing. How was the restaurant? How was your new adventure? It looked like you really had so much fun wearing that helmet sitting on that bug, on the sand?

    • Reply dawnlucy June 26, 2014 at 1:21 pm

      Yeah that helmet and sweatshirt weren't really a stellar fashion moment! Hee!
