     Sometimes we forget that we live so close to the beach. I always wondered how people who live like 5 miles away never made time to go to the beach and go for a walk or read a book. Now we are those people. The house we want to buy is 5 miles away (or less) and I couldn't even tell you the last time I saw the ocean. So we did what we had to do. Woke up early, headed to breakfast, grabbed some coffee and went and took photos right on the sand. It was a lovely, cool, overcast morning. There were dogs playing frisbee, people surfing, people working out, little kids playing in the freezing water... all stuff I hope we can do when we live closer! 
     It also made for a lovely backdrop for some outfit photos. I just have to say, I bought this bag in New York City at Century 21 and it was so expensive... but so on sale! It was great! I LOVE the shade of blue, it is like nothing else that I have and I love the clasps on the pockets. It perfectly livens up my otherwise neutral outfit. 


  1. So jaleous you get to live so close to the beach! ^^ From my place it's a 3 hour drive to the closest beach :) I love the top you are wearing! It's so loose and comfy ^^ and the bag is amazing too! x

  2. Awww the beach! You look so chic and comfy with that striped nautical sweater! :)

  3. Love these amazing photos and I'm SO one of those people. Hubs and I live about 20 steps away from the beach AND we are so guilty of the same crime. However, this will be the summer that I change my ways ;-) And you look absolutely gorgeous lovely lady, I'm smitten with your gorgeous stripes. xx veronika

  5. That purse is absolutely incredible! I LOVE the color, the shape and the pockets! It was definitely a great find!

    Once upon a time the hubby and I lived near San Francisco. We went to the beach no more than 5 times the entire time we lived there. Now I wish we'd gone every singe weekend! I miss the beach!!!
