Bird's Eye View

I brought my favorite cape out for another blustery day here in old Washington (as evidenced by the wind blowing my hair in my face). I actually saw several small whirlwinds build a few yards from me, threatening to turn into dust devils. I considered seeking shelter until the wind died down...but what's the point of life if you hide from a little breeze? Also, chances are spots this high up are often continously windy and I wanted to give a more complete picture of this region than usually presented on the blog. Whenever I'm wandering about for a spot for pictures or exploring, this is the scene I pass: distant purple mountains, fields, and eventually it all becomes evergreen forests. There are places where you can tell farms used to exist and orchards have become overgrown and unkempt, and dozens of spots for prime blackberry picking when the season is right. When I spied this hill I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to show more of a panorama of the area.

I love the profile shot. I also love these shoes, I think about it every time you post an outfit with them but I don't think I've ever commented about it.

Such a beautiful place! I'm inspired. I miss living near mountains (I live by the ocean now, so I guess that's ok!). Love your vintage cape, too! Perfect for a blustery spring day.

Little Ocean Annie said...

This is my favorite outfit you've ever worn! So cozy and cute! and that side picture of you is absolutely perfect!

What beautiful scenery! I miss the NW so much, but I'm headed back to Portland (after a few months in TX, yuk) and can't wait to see the color green!

Gypsy with a Camera said...

It's so pretty. I love.

Jane said...

There are no words for how much I love this cape...having done that thing where you discover a new blog then lose half a day devouring the archives, out of all your very beautiful clothes this one stayed with me the most. So much so that I immediately began the hunt for a similar one. Lo and behold, Lady Luck smiled on me because the same one came up on ebay and I snaffled it as quick as I could. It's a beautiful item, so thank you for bringing it into my life! : ) I live in Scotland though, so it tends to actually be a spring-summer item. Love the blog, you're a great inspiration!

bestie said...

Your usual backdrops of forest greens and pretty flowers are always stunning but it's equally exciting to see these new places. (: plus I love the last photo of you! (:

I've said it a million times, but I envy your location. I love Washington so much. I like the change of scenery today with the big panorama, really pretty and complements your warm outfit.

Beautiful photos Rebecca! I think this landscape is really beautiful to me--I love the starkness and the great sense of the Northwest land.

I love the cape--looks so cozy! I'd happily switch weather with you if I could. It's in the 80s here in N. CA today and it's too warm for my taste.
Gorgeous pictures!

pauline said...

the scenery is incredible, and ive said it before but i have a thing for your cape

Kimberellie said...

The third photo is thoroughly and completely beautiful. I adore it. I would hang it on my wall I adore it so much. There is something of C.S. Lewis' "joy" in it (now here I am assuming that just maybe you have read Surprised by Joy). If not, what I am trying to say is there is a sort of magic too it.

And of course the outfit is lovely. Adore that cape. LOVE that photo.

Miss Violet Bell said...
