Beachy Chic

Beachy Chic



It's summer so the beach is on my mind! I have yet to get to one, but in July I am going to make it happen. While SoCal is great and our beaches are gorgeous, I've always wanted to live in a small East Coast seaside town. You know, with lighthouses, clambakes, and 4th of July parades. Who wants to move with me?!

Until that day when I'm nestled in a Maine or Massachusetts village by the shore I'll dream. And since I'm dreaming, here's an outfit I'd wear while strolling down the quaint streets in my ideal town.

Since it's Friday I'm linking up with Long Distance Loving for Friday's Fancies.




I hope you all have a great weekend! Tonight I'm off to see Sugar Rey, Evervlear, Gin Blossoms, and a few other 90s bands with Tiffany of Polka Dotted Cats. It's going to be epic! Then tomorrow Tiffany, another friend and I are going to spend the day doing something fun. Unfortunately I can't disclose exactly what since it's a birthday surprise for our other friend who happens to read this blog. (Sorry, Kathrin :P)

Remember to join the Weekend Update linkup Monday if you're blogging about your weekend!

Coastal Carolina is the place to be though! :)

Cute outfit!

Amelia - Ugly Duckling said...

This is such a great look! That dress is really nice. I would wear this for a day in the city shopping, I never look this nice at the beach, haha! :)

Cannot even begin to tell you how obsessed I am with this outfit-- definitely going to try and pull this off! And that concert sounds too fun, I saw a bunch of 90s bands last month and it was the best!

first, i love all the nautical touches in your look - especially the earrings & those sandals!

second, you basically described mine & justin's honeymoon when you were talking about maine + massachusetts. we are going to boston, ma & portland, me so that we can see a big american city we've never seen, while also getting to tour lighthouses & wake up on the water! :)

third, sugar ray?! EVERCLEAR?! sounds like one epic night to me! y'all have fun.

Have a great weekend!

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

Cute outfit, but you can't move to Maine because I won't visit you because I'm not allowed in that state!

Stephanie said...

Love that dress! And I, too, share that East Coast seaside dream. That lovely dress is perfect for a clambake. :)

Andrea {blonde ambitions} said...

Love everything about this outfit! I am searching for a white lace dress just like that!! I share a dream for the East Coast (it is starting to annoy the husband with how much I talk about it!) have a great weekend!!

Dana @ five30three said...

I wish I had that nautical goodness outfit you've designed up there. But I wish even more that I was going to the beach with you and Tiffany. Instead I will live vicariously through you when I read your weekend update.

Hope it's a great one!!

Allison said...

What a fun, nautical outfit! I would wear all of these pieces! Have a great weekend!

Cheryl van den Berg said...

Love the cover up and that nautical look. Speaking of Maine, I totally want some crab cakes right now.

Cara said...

I have had my eye on those anchor earrings for awhile! I absolutely love the dress you picked, it's so beautiful and perfect for strolling beachside.

Have so much fun tonight, I heard a Sugar Ray song in spin class this morning and got all nostalgic!

Claire Kiefer said...

So cute. Summer makes me want to shop even more. All I can think about are Florida beaches . . . the girls in my family went last week, and I was so sad not to be with them! Even though we have beautiful beaches in California, the vibe is totally different in those southern beach towns. Bring on the Jimmy Buffett!

Kelly { MessyDirtyHair } said...

i love that you added navy to this! give it such a natuical look! i love it!! so cute! have a great weekend!! xoxo

dreaming en francais said...
