The Tiny Heart: Summer in April?

4.17.2012

Summer in April?



Tank-Express (similar), Necklace-F21 (similar), Belt-H&M (similar), Dress (worn as skirt)-F21 (worn here, cute option), Sandals-Target (similar)

Yesterday it hit almost 90 degrees in Jersey...totally crazy for this time of year (global warming, much?). I couldn't wait to leave work and hit the beach in my bikini. But when I got home it felt about 10 degrees cooler with the ocean breeze. 

Then I remembered it's still April and not a warm summer day, sigh. I had to reach for a light sweatshirt instead of my bikini.

Even though I didn't quite get my summer beach day, there's still nothing better than this:

    1. Haha it does exist although it's very from where I live at the shore so I've never been there.

  12. I have got to start wearing some of my dresses as skirts--what a great idea! You're a genius. :)

    I live in CO and have the mountains--which I love. But that beach pic is making me a bit jealous.
