Style at the Shore

I decided to get one last beach trip in this summer before Aidan arrives.  I needed to get my tan on one last time (minus the belly, which is the palest it has been in years) and just relax on the beach since next summer I will be chasing around a little one.  A quick two night trip is just what I needed!  

When it came time to pack my beach attire, my goal was to keep it comfortable.  This is a maternity dress from Target which works great as a beach cover up or for just hanging around.  If I don't already look big enough in these pictures, you should see this dress without the belt.  Lets just say the belt was much needed!  I love summer hats and what better place to wear one but at the shore, especially to mask my frizzy hair from the beach weather.  Add a vest, why not!  These pieces all make for a cool, comfortable beach look!






Dress: Target  |  Vest: Old Navy (similar)  |  Belt: H&M  |  Hat: Roxy  |  Sunglasses: Ann Taylor Loft  |  Necklaces: gift, Von Eshna, Alimonada  |  Bracelets: ASOS, gift, Yochi

Day 1 at the beach!





I spent yesterday at the beach with these cuties!!  My feet look like little sausages but it was well worth it.  I recently purchased a new lens for my camera so I had fun playing around with it.  I finally found some time to take an online photography class and learn how to correctly use the different functions on my camera.  I mean I've only had the camera for about 2 years now!  I'm in my 3rd week of the class with 3 more weeks to go and it is the best investment I ever made!  Perfect timing with Aidan arriving so soon because you better believe I will be one of those parents who takes a million pictures of her child!  

It's beach time, day 2!
