beach day.

I live less than five minutes from the beach, but I can honestly say I don't like going. It's too way hot here, and there's nothing appealing to me about laying on a towel in direct sunlight, sticky and hot and feeling like I'm about to die. I don't mind the beach so much if the weather is cool, and I'll occasionally go to the beach fully clothed just to walk in the sand for a bit, but it's been years and years and years since I actually put on a bathing suit to go to the beach. in the summer. But when my cousin visited, it was one of the things she wanted to do, so we did. The only reasonable time for two pale ghost girls to go the beach in the middle of June is eight o' clock at night, obviously. so that's what we did.

  1. I love your '50s bathing suit ~ dusk and dawn are my fav times to go to the beach when I do get a chance to go :) Hubs and I once visited a string of beaches between St. Augustine & Jacksonville years ago, they are wonderful memories!

  2. Your bathing suit is really cute. I'm like you are but with our swimming pool. I prefer to go after sunset when it's cooler and not so crowded. And I try to avoid getting sun whenever possible anyway so I'm white as a ghost. :P

  3. You know I LOVE that vintage bathing suit!!!! Was just at the beach this last weekend! Gorgeous photo's you had the whole beach to play all just for you. :)

  4. thank you dears! i love that bathing suit too, i'm so glad i got to use it, even if it is the only time!

  5. GREAT bathing suit! I live close to a beach, but that beach is Lake Michigan, in the middle of a city. So I never go. I do love beaches though, especially in the Caribbean where you can jump in the water when you get too hot and it's not shockingly cold!
