Happy Monday, everyone!
Most of us have been enjoying the beautiful summer weather while on vacation. I love summer traveling because I am able to wear outfits that I might otherwise be unable to show off normally (such as that fancy dress for a night on the town). Beach vacations are my favorite, & I love to wear outfits that are beach approved! Beach resort wear is that easy look that is both comfortable & fashionable. These looks help to make you feel more relaxed while enjoying those sunny days!
Here are a few of my outfits I wore while on vacation. When at the beach, I go for more casual looks. Shorts & t-shirts are a must!
On Monday I took a shopping trip to Bethany Beach, DE. It is the cutest little town! It has so many shops that are unique & adorable! One store I went into was called “Yuppy Puppy.” It had hand-made dog treats, dog toys, & dog gifts. Bethany Beach is definitely more family & community oriented. The whole town is very clean & has a very mellow atmosphere. I loved it! 🙂
Every summer, the nautical theme makes a comeback. Typically in the colors of red, white, & blue and anything seafaring. I used to find this décor rather trendy, not my cup of tea. But over the years, along with various beach trips that I look forward to every summer, I’ve grown to love the nautical theme. However, I think nautical should have a sophisticated feel.
1. Red, White, & Blue Colors
3. Anchors & Anything Related to the Sea
I bought coasters from Charming Charlie that I think are a great way to add that nautical feel to your home!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
It’s so nice to have a long weekend before going back to work. It makes everything more relaxing. I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday over the holiday weekend. I spent the weekend at the beach, it was lovely! The weather was perfect, & I even got to wear shorts. Always a plus!
I got myself a few birthday presents at the outlets. One was a JCrew necklace. I love JCrew jewelry, so I thought I’d indulge! I also purchased a new pair of sunglasses, also JCrew.
While enjoying the boardwalk, I came across a bookstore that sells nearly every book & nick-knack you could think of. It’s one of those bookstores where the books are piled on shelves, & digging through them is half the fun! I found a forty-year old copy of The Great Gatsby. The edges are trimmed in gold & each chapter has lovely illustrations.
Finally, I went to Marshalls & found chocolate covered Oreos. Yes, I said that correctly. They were amazing!!
My birthday was really wonderful! I am truly blessed, & I’m so glad I could enjoy turning 23 with the ones I love! ❤
