Sunshine Sweetness

I recently made the journey back home (Florida) and had a wonderful time.  Northwest Florida does have its charm and I do miss the beach like a girl on a diet misses chocolate cake.  I ran up to DC by train to grab a flight down to Florida.  I know it sounds silly that way, but I love DC so I didn’t mind a pit stop along the way.  I stayed a few days with my mom at the beach and then went back to the country to stay a few with my dad before making the haul back.  It was a perfect time to go to Florida; still hot enough to get in the pool, yet cool enough to not melt outside (July and August can be a beast in Florida).  Here’s my very long photo journal:

Beachin’ J Crew

I am planning an end of summer beach trip so that I can take a few days to get back to my roots and get some sun on my skin before the crisp air settles in.  While I was looking at the J Crew Factory website I started thinking of all the things that a girl would need for a quick vacation near the salt water and sand.  Of course, they didn’t disappoint!

An adorable printed beach towel would come in handy for not only beach trips, but also for picnics and days spent reading in the park (it could be a city towel too!).  I could also see a need for some sunnies, dressy-yet-casual sandals for transitioning from beach to dinner on an outside patio, a cute bag to store sunscreen, lip balm, and the small necessities, and a fedora to coolly block the sun out of my eyes while giving me sweaty hat hair.  They also have the most amazing scalloped dress that would be so cute for a sunset seafood dinner.  Can’t you picture it?!  I can’t wait!  I haven’t been to the beach in so long, it’ll be a nice treat.  Did I miss anything else I would need?…
