I had to make a trip up to Jacksonville this weekend for a family party and I knew I had to stop by the beach while I was up there. Surprisingly, even though I live in Florida I don't go to the beach that often... if I go 2-3 times that's a lot for me. Which is sad because I love going to the beach but it's an hour drive away and parking is ridiculous if you get there too late in the afternoon so I usually just park it at my pool with a book. I knew I wasn't going to get a whole day at the beach since the party was at 3:30 so I figured just stopping by and reminding myself there are beaches in Florida would be good enough for me. I usually live in maxi dresses or skirts on the weekend so this weekend was no exception. I got this maxi from Target ages ago but I still am obsessed with it. I love the colors in it and the way it fits. I also love that it's not cotton so I feel like that makes it a bit more dressy than your average cotton maxi. I decided to go pretty simple with this look especially since I knew I'd be running around chasing little kids and little kids and accessories do not mix well together (at least in scenarios I've experienced!). I also attempted to curl my hair (for those who don't know, I'm the worst girl ever, I can't do my own hair to save my life and I'm not so great at doing my own makeup either. I feel bad if I ever have a little girl because she definitely will not be sporting cute little braids) but the curls fell out right about the time I walked onto the beach. Oh and yes, I had to include the picture of me screaming in surprise when the water came up and hit my ankles. That water was COLD! I don't know how these tourists get out there when the water is still that cold but more power to them, I'll stay on the sand in the warmth! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
Happy Friday lovelies! I'm not going to lie, I had every intention of taking today off from blogging since this week has been crazy ...
