Seaside Rendezvous

It was SUPER hot last weekend and it made me crave some ice cream from the Ice Cream Man. So Chris hunted one down and got me a Spiderman popsicle! :) I was feeling very superhero-y. My outfit looked a little Wonder Woman-esque. 


I've had this outfit planned for a while, but was waiting for the perfect weather to wear it. It was definitely a beach weather day, so I decided it was time to wear it! I love this top. It's comfortable, and it's fitted. Most of the crop tops I see are baggy nowadays. Don't get me wrong...I do enjoy the baggy crop top look and I do own a few, but nothing beats a nice fitted look. And the red with the white stripes gives off a sort of retro/pin-up vibe to me. They had it in black too, but I had to go with the red.

I love lighthouses. I've always wanted to go inside one and climb to the top. I think it'd be cool to live in one...or to at least have a nice room in one to hang out in and get away from things for a bit. I think there's something really romantic and enchanting about them. The repetition of the light going around is soothing to me, for some reason. I also like to think that it's searching for something, or that there's someone in there searching for someone. I guess that's where the whole romantic part of it comes into play. Around here, I've seen houses that have what look like little lighthouse rooms at the top. I'd love one of those.

Chris and I have come to this park together a few times. And we usually always migrate towards this lighthouse. It's a great place to overlook the ocean. I wish it was open to the public!

Some of my favorite pictures of us were taken here a couple of years ago. It's a great spot. :) I think I'm going to make it a point this summer to try to find as many lighthouses as I can. As great as this one is, it can get a little crowded. I'd love to find some more secluded ones that are accompanied by great landscapes and grassy fields.


  1. You. Look. Amazing. I am seriously in love with this entire look, especially the top.

  2. What a cute outfit! I love the colour combination!
