Weekend by the Beach / Part 3

So! I am back with more photos from my weekend at the beach. This day, we spent most of the day outdoors. Morgan took us to many of her favorite places and it really gives me a good feel for how she grew up, and why we share so many similarities and get along so well. As much as I am a city girl, I love being outside and surrounded by the sounds, smells, and sights of nature. Even though I didn’t grow up living near the ocean, I have always somehow felt very connected to it. A walk on the sand is all it takes to come to complete relaxation for me. Ok! Enough blabbering on about how much I love this place. On to the outfit! The cold only got more so as we stayed that weekend. So  I was looking for sheer warmth and something walkable for during the day. Morgan let me borrow her super soft flannel and I had bought these tall socks from American Apparel that were thick and kept my feet warm (for a little whiles anyway). I HAD to wear a hat or my ears would have probably fallen off my face. When I put it on, Brian said to me, “You look like a homeless person in that hat.” HAHAHA. Look how much I followed his advice. I wore it anyways. So now I will think of that every time I wear it and smile. Scroll down for a TON of outfit pics and extra goodies from our adventure day. Enjoy!

Morgan capturing us at work again!

Lua was having the time of her life. Sand on nose = joy

I heart many things, but the beach, and these types of trips are high on that list.

Morgan drove us around in her super old and amazing Land Rover. Since the roads were a mess, this allowed us to venture more! It was a rocky ride. I was fascinated by all the old moving parts in the car and the color of it. Perfect beach cruiser.

This is by far one of my fav photos I have taken of Morgan. I just HAD to share!

After a long day of being outside in the cold, we cozied up with a tea back at the house and watched the sunset. Breathtakingly beautiful.

    Girl And Closet (Veronika) - I am loving this series Kim, it’s the perfect way to start my day …ala cup of coffee in hand. I too adore the beach! I luckily live across the street from the ocean and love venturing down with my dog and taking pictures. I love what both of you girls are wearing too; even moments at the beach can be fabulously fashionable. Love it! xx veronikaReplyCancel

    Lisa - Can I just tell you how much I love Madewell! Although I hardly own anything from there. I did buy a pair of boots this fall, but ended up selling them to my sister because they just didn’t fit right. This shirt from Madewell is so great, and the boots are rockin’ too. That photo of Morgan with the car is out of this world. Can’t wait to see what you girls are wearing next!ReplyCancel
