This is me at the beach..the beach! I know, I know…way over-dressed right? In all fairness, I thought we were going to more of a country club kind of thing. Hence the seersucker. There’s even a pair of patent leather, wine colored heels that really completes this whole outfit that I had to take off. Ridiculous, I know…

The boyfriend’s office was getting off early to compete in a competitive bocce ball tournament (they had hats made specially for the occasion), and when I heard it was going to be at a beach and tennis club…I immediately thought “county-club” and got dressed for the occasion. Seersucker…check. Pearls…check.

Used my own advice & found a new cute color pairing for this jacket. Blue + purple = analogous!

The boyfriend came to pick me up, and as he changed into shorts, tells me, “You know, it’s at the beach…”

But, surely a fancy, country club-esque beach, right? And besides I was already dressed and fresh out of ideas for dressing down. I tossed my Rainbows into my bag and off we went.

We drank Corona’s, ate burgers, and ran away shrieking as the tide quickly washed away the bocce ball courts (and the boyfriend’s Sperry’s).

Then we enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

I can get used to these San Diego summers…  :)
