Zara Sweater / Mink Pink Cardigan / Alice & Olivia Boots
While our trip to Oregon was brief but eventful, I wanted to share the photos Grant and I shot inside Sandbox Studio in Portland before our night out that eventually led to a huge disaster…but I’ll save that story for another post. Winter had been creeping in on us since the moment we departed for our road trip, so I packed a suitcase optimized for comfort. Ironically what I ended up with was a rotation of a chunky gray sweater in which during the course of two weeks, blended into one uniform look. Even though my dull wardrobe is a testament to the blandness of basics, packing white, gray, and black makes effortless pairings for when you’re more interested in the sight-seeing than being one.

November 10-November 24
In the two weeks we were off, we drove a total of three thousand miles North and South of Pacific Coast Highway, kicked off our trip with a night full of white russians at The Madonna Inn, drove through the winding roads in Big Sur at sunset, ate Thai food at every city we stopped into no matter how small or large, drank hot toddies at the locals only bar in Brookings, ran around the Mission in San Francisco on a Saturday night, managed to retrieve all of our belongings after being robbed blind, and celebrated the close of our road trip dancing the night away at Harvard and Stone. This road trip was a reminder of how much I live for adventures like these–moments that drag you into the present moment and the future is only as far as the road ahead. Thank you to Laura and Grant for being the best road trip companions a girl can ask for…and for one of the most breathtaking, delirious, exciting, devastating, and hilarious two weeks of my life, along with our new friends who hosted us along the way. You can trace our journey through our hashtag #Storiedventure. Stay tuned for round two.
