Beachin' It

Hello dears,

Long time no talk! 

You'd think that after graduating I'd have plenty of free time, right? Unfortunately, it's quite the opposite. Somehow I've kept busy, whether it's moving out, unpacking, running errands, or preparing for a much-needed beach trip. 

My family takes a trip to the beach every year, and this summer we decided to try out a new beach on the NC coast. We just arrived Saturday, but here are some pictures of what I've been up to.

Enjoying this beautiful scenery:


Breakfasting by the sea:

{Whole grain waffle, Greek vanilla yogurt + honey, fresh berries}

Catching some sunshine on the beach:

{SPF 15 Balm in Caring Coral, by L'Oreal}

Dressing up for fun dinners out:


Enjoying some amazing salads:

{Greek salad with grilled chicken, cucumbers, feta, tomatoes, and kalamata olives}

And finally, letting Lilly play in the sand... she's still afraid of the waves, but we're working on it!


:)

Be back soon with more updates, OOTDs, and a "what's in my beach bag" post. 
Catch you soon!

Love, Cait
