Short Story

The beach is one of my favorite, most relaxing places to go. As soon as my feet hit the sand, my worries seem to disappear! When packing for the beach I pack comfortable, easy pieces…I want the whole beach trip to be effortless. That’s the point of being at the beach, right?  I always make sure that I pack pieces that will be perfect for those chilly beach nights and comfortable for the inevitable sunburn I will get those first few beach trips! For this most recent trip we had amazing weather. I brought along my favorite lace top (best purchase ever!) and these shorts for a fun, beachy look! I was so thankful I had this outfit after a long day in the sun! This outfit was so cute and very comfortable!
