ONE LAST CROP TOP TO CLOSE OUT THE SUMMER

Summer is slowly coming to a close and I’m over here trying to get in my last few warm weather looks. I’m very aware that we can expect a heatwave or two in October. It always seems to work like that, but I want to make sure I’m bearing as much skin now before I’m cloaked in oversized knits, jackets and scarves. Layering is so much fun until it’s April and it’s just…not.

It really has been a great summer, though. I felt like I was busy nearly every weekend. I enjoyed a trip to colorado, joined a kickball league with friends, and spent many weekends soaking up the sun at my family’s beach house in CT. Every summer seems to go by so fast, I just don’t expect anything less anymore. This way, I’m less disappointed when it flies by. 

I think I’m just in the season of strolling down memory lane, but sometimes I miss the summer days of aimlessly laying by a pool or on a beach. The days when I would make meatballs out of the perfect combination of dry and wet sand, or when I would spend my nights hanging out in the town beach parking lot doused in Bath & Body Works body spray and with a Maybeline JUICY lipgloss in my back pocket. I spent so many summers wishing I was old enough to drive or old enough to stay out past 11pm. Truth be told, young little Jackie, driving is overrated and being in bed before 11pm is a blessing. There were so many great memories and there are so many more to be made. Enjoy every bit of it. 

So, to celebrate the conclusion of another summer, wear your favorite summer top and those perfect blue jeans and enjoy the sun shining on your face. Oh, and to pregame fall, grab a fall scented candle…or five.

Shore to please is what the bottom of my license plate reads, but I mean a completely different “shore” it’s a lot smaller and lot less flashy but it has always been good enough for me. However, this weekend we’re meeting up with Josh’s mom down the shore in Point Pleasant. I know I sound like a broken record, but I’m not too familiar with the Jersey Shore, don’t get me wrong, the times I’ve gone  have always been super fun! I love the boardwalk and the beaches are stunning. But I have to confess, my last experience was a bit intimidating. I think I was just on the wrong beach because when I go to the beach for the day I can actually say “I woke up like this” I have zero makeup, semi-clean hair and if I have any shoes on at all they’re my trusted rainbow flip-flops. I guess we decided to go to the Tiki Bar because it was kind of a landmark? Or just a notorious spot? I found out quickly that I am just not about that life. Nearly everyone had a full face of makeup, wedges and some kind of mini skirt combo over their suits—feeling insecure was an understatement; you live and learn right? This weekend I decided to plan my look, since I don’t believe we’ll be frequenting places like The Tiki Bar, I went with some lax options (all from SheInside). All you really need are cutoffs, a flowy top, a pair of comfortably cute sandals and a compact bag. I never carry one with me, it’s something I need to learn to do and this brown tassel bag is perfect because there’s enough room for the essentials and it won’t get in the way of my funnel cake plans.

 

So I think I’m ready to take on my next shore experience, do you think I need anything else?!
