summer

down at seaside

Typically we spend July 4th at the beach but this year we decided to change things up and relax at home. Lucky for us, the weather was perfect, and from the looks of the weather channel the rain has been nonstop at the beach. These pictures are from my last beach trip on an outing to Seaside. Seaside is the small picturesque beach town, most known for the set it played for the Truman Show. The small town is now jammed packed with people, shopping, beach homes and bikes.

in the middle

It’s not a maxi and it’s not a mini; it’s a midi! I have a few mid-length skirts that have been in full rotation lately. It’s WAY too hot for pants, and this length is perfect for summer.

beach walks

If I had it my way every summer evening would be spent like this {if only work didn’t get in the way}. The last beach trip I went on we took several long walks on the beach with camera in hand, of course.  My sister and I had too much fun! I couldn’t help but capture my summer uniform as of late; super soft denim shorts {I LOVE these} and stripes on top. This particular occasion called for my favorite beach find, a super inexpensive hat from Saks Off 5th.

wear this, with that

While browsing the racks at a local boutique yesterday a lady approached me, saying she loved how well my bag and shoes went together. I took the compliment, but was taken back, because there is no way I thought about that as I was getting dressed. I’m not a real matchy, matchy person but the combination I was wearing went well, without perfectly matching. Here are a few combinations that do just the same.

summer dress

Now that summer is officially underway, I can’t help but pick up a few new things. Dresses are so easy to throw on and go, especially during these warmer months. Here are a few styles I am loving.

blogger inspired

I came across this post yesterday, and was immediately inspired to search for a kaftan. The most cozy, chic look and perfect for traveling. Wear during the day as a cover up and as a dress, or with white jeans in the evening. Here are a few of my favorite options from World Market, and all under $30!
