I’ve never traveled to the Pacific Northwest, but I’ve been enchanted by its stately vistas and rugged geography for quite some time. I guess my infatuation with America’s northwest corner began when I watched The Goonies for the first time. As a kid, I thought Mikey’s foggy seaside neighborhood was the coolest place in the world—way more exciting than my small, landlocked hometown in rural Pennsylvania. My love for Pacific Northwest imagery was solidified even more when I saw Twin Peaks. Douglas firs, rapid waterfalls, and moss-covered boulders gave each episode an eerie dose of intrigue, and the opening landscape credits get me every time. With all of this in mind, I’ve decided to embrace a Pacific Northwest aesthetic in my wardrobe this year. Check out the inspiration board above, and the inspirational images below, and let me know what you think!
