Pretty, Polished, Perfect.: The Five Foot Beach

The Five Foot Beach

That was not a typo.  We honestly have a beach about two miles from the place I call home.  It's about five feet wide and five feet back from the waters edge.  Children play here.  I think the max. occupancy is 12.  And the water isn't blue.  Or green. 


Yes, I love that picture.  Or the idea of wading into a dirty lake clad in rainboots and a pencil skirt.

Here are the slightly less dramatic and therefore less artistic photos of this outfit:






{skirt, shirt Zara belt H&M bangles Target shoes Naughty Monkey necklace c/o My Grandmother Z}

I had a sweater that I thought to use as an "accessory" but of course opted not to use it.  Quite concerned for its well-being near the water on such a windy day, I asked The Mr. to protect it for me.  Which he did. 



I barely had time to snap the shutter before he took it off, lol!

Your Mr is the bomb to keep your sweater safe!

Wow, your skirt fits you like a glove. That piece was made for you :-D Oh and I'd certainly love to have a beach near my house. I'd even be okay with a one-foot-beach, as long as it's MY foot that's on it :-D

Tim Gunn said no horizontal stripes or capris after 40 so I'm going overboard on the stripes this year. Luckily you still have tons of time before you hit 40 so live it up!

It did fit like a glove....I really wanted the next size up, but they were out. I might as well wear them tight while I'm still young.....ish. haha!
