The Tiny Heart: Peace & Quiet

8.31.2012

Peace & Quiet





Button Down, Shorts, Sandals-AE
(wow, I'm a walking ad today!)

I figured I'd enjoy the last moment of peace and quiet on the beach before all the Bennys come down for Labor Day weekend. Most people savor this weekend, but I'm already looking forward to it being over. I'll no longer have to drive around the block three times for a parking spot, wait for two hours to get a table at my favorite restaurant, or have people sitting on top of my blanket at the beach. Goodbye orange tanned, hair gelled, fake muscled people!

  38. This is such a cute look - perfect for the beach and these late summer days! Sometimes you just can't beat a classic pair of jean shorts. And yeah, I bet the influx of people is a little annoying. Hope things slow down again soon!

  45. Unfortunately, that's the down side of living in a tourist friendly area. Hope your weekend is amazing, even if you stay at home and wait the tourists out!

  51. Okay, easily one of the cutest beach outfits ever. If it was still warm enough to wear shorts I'd shamelessly copy you in a heartbeat. I can't believe I never though of pairing a long sleeve plaid shirt with denim shorts, it's crazy adorable, really wearable and all stuff I have in my closet. (And I'll be stupid and say it, but I really like those sandals. I like the thick cuff around the ankle, it looks like it would stay on and it just adds oodles of style to the denim shorts.)
    Thank you by the way for your comment on my post the other day and taking the time to give me your input on it. And your two cents is worth way more then two cents. :)

  55. Hahaha "orange tanned"! I love that. Must be annoying to have tourists takin' over your spots! But you have a fantastic outfit so that should cheer you up, haha. I sometimes find myself being a walking ad too, I love American Eagle! :)

  61. Technically I'm a benny, since I'm from near Newark AND New York...but you'll never catch me showing it. Nope, no socks & sneakers on the beach for this gal. And usually I'm at Sandy Hook, taking up nobody's parking space. :) I hope you had a great weekend despite the crowds! You look adorable!
