Late summer trip to the beach

This weekend we made a last minute trip to the beach with my brother-in-law and his girlfriend. Avalon, New Jersey was our destination, which is where my BIL's girlfriend's family has a house. Looking forward to the weekend was a great incentive to power through the workweek!

With temperatures on the Jersey Shore topping out at a cool 70 degrees, and evening temps dipping into the 50s, I knew that packing for this trip would take a slightly different strategy than your typical mid-summer scorcher.

For a casual morning stroll on the beach I layered up! But the water was warm enough to wade through, which was lovely. 

Jacket: Lululemon $118 (similar)
Top: Lularoe $38 (similar, similar, similar)
Leggings: J.Crew $40 (similar, similar, similar)
Sunglasses: Prada $272 (similar)

This actually ended up being what I spent most of my time in throughout the weekend...Seeing as we were only there for two nights and one full day, it made for an easy outfit to pack. 

So a happy sendoff to summer it was! It was enough of a goodbye so that I'm actually looking forward to the fall temperatures, adventures, and clothing ahead!
