i heart oregon

Living in Oregon is truly a blessing.  I love that the wild, windy coast and the lush, emerald mountains are a quick hour away!  I recently spent a long weekend with my family in the hidden gem of Oceanside.  We had lovely pockets of sunshine, quick bursts of stormy weather and found inspiration under every small rock.

Frankie was enthralled by every small shell.

Our amazing crab feast.  Delicious.



The sun has been shining in Portland and we are inspired to start sporting some cheerful colors! Here are the new clutches that just hit our etsy shop!  Great patterns, organic canvas, lush colors...

Eggplant purple & ivory organic canvas clutch with citron denim accents.

Smoky gray & ivory organic canvas with stone denim accents.  Lovely folded or not.

Ahh, color pop!  Indigo & white abstract canvas with turquoise brushed denim accents.

guilty pleasures

This time of year, with our gray Portland skies, it's hard to stay motivated and I can most likely be found hibernating while listening to melancholy music. Remember the soundtrack of Once?  That's often on repeat in January. In order to keep moving this past cold January here at Frankie&CocoPDX we found inspiration in some booty shakin' music to keep us going. Here's two of our favorite motivational guilty pleasures. Enjoy! Maya has Beyoncé's new amazing album on repeat.


Sarah can NOT stop listening to Flo Rida's up-do of Nina Simone's "How I Feel."
