I haven't been to the beach since 2011, so I was definitely looking forward to going to Virginia Beach for the first time last weekend. When I got there I found an overcrowded beach with sand as hot as blazing coals and no seashells (to my dismay), yet there's something so peaceful about the sea that made it all worth it. Even though I didn't venture out into the deep, there's something relaxing about just watching the vastness of the ocean, the ebb and flow of the tide, the crashing of the cool saltwater waves across your feet. If not for the heat, I could have stayed there longer. It was also a great, new experience to share with a few of the ones I love most.

The first three J.Crew pieces were on crazy good sale a few days before -- already reduced +50% off +15% off student discount. I'm talking, I got the shorts for $10 bucks good!
Trying to bring "InspirationEle" to the beach. The first time it got washed away. The second time, within seconds of me writing it a toddler rolled a truck right through it.
