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!

A day at the beach

So I have always loved the beach.  If I could spend everyday of my summer at the beach, it would be the perfect summer.  Unfortunately, my days at the beach this summer are numbered, :(.  I just about make the walk to the beach and end the day with swollen ankles, booo.  This may have been my last trip to the beach this summer.  Well at least it was a relaxing one considering next summer I'll be chasing a lil beach boy around.  That thought actually makes me a very happy and excited mama. 

Oh and can I tell you it is not easy to find a cute, affordable maternity bathing suit.  I mean I could have pranced around in a bikini exposing my ginormous belly to the world, but I figured I'd spare the beach goers that sight!  I refused to spend a lot of money on a bathing suit I would wear a handful of times, so I settled on this little number from Destination Maternity.  This is probably the first time I am wearing a one piece swimsuit since I was, I dunno, like 10.  It is actually rather comfortable.
