Day 3: Gems and Baubles.
Missed this because my phone
decided it has a mind of its own wouldn’t take pictures (who knows? It’s technology). I had some great jewelry to show off, but oh well.
Day 4: Red Alert
I’m in love with the red embroidery on this top from Zara. I wore it over jeans for a red, white, and blue outfit in honor of Independence Day.
While picking out today’s outfit, I started thinking about my favorite seaside trips. Soulac-sur-Mer is a favorite memory (especially of being half-asleep on the sand and finally opening my eyes in time to see the tide pools filling as the tide rolled in and people scrambling to get to higher ground – I barely got my stuff and made it to dry sand). A close second is my visit to Manchester-by-the-Sea’s Singing Beach on July 4th of last year. Manchester-by-the-Sea has the added attraction of a wonderful bookstore (Manchester By The Book. I don’t know which I love more: the name or the shop) that is accessed by an easy walk from the beach.
Sand, sun, and books – my idea of the perfect seaside experience…
