beach stop

Happy Labor Day, Monday, and September everyone! Today I'll be spending most of my day at the office thinking about the beach, and sun bathing with the pups so I figured I might as well share a day I did get to sort of spend there last weekend.

Last Saturday JD and I drove out east to attend a barbecue at his uncle's house. I still had a cold and felt miserable but I was determined to not let that stop me from enjoying the day. It was a challenge, but lucky my purse was big enough to contain a full sized box of tissues and most of a medicine cabinet. On our way back home we stopped to explore this pretty beach. I can't say I've been to many beaches with bluffs like this, but the change of scenery was certainly welcome. We stood on the large rocks set in the sand and took in the salt air and stormy sky. I kept it casual in a comfy old J. Crew tee, jeans, and sparkly sandals. 


  1. Looks beautiful!! Hope your feeling better, hope you enjoy your Monday!

  6. Aww I hope you're done with the sniffles! Though I definitely did laugh at the whole being able to fit the medicine cabinet in your purse thing. Good thing those kind of bags exist ;) And ugh ive only been to the beach three times this summer- just thinking about it makes me sad. I want that sunshine on me!
