Today I have another look for you from my recent vacation at the Jersey Shore! (My last post actually featured pics I took while on the boardwalk in Atlantic City.) Every year Dave and I try to get down to NJ because his family always rents a house down the shore. It’s a nice relaxing week hanging out by the beach, and we absolutely love it!
Dave and I love skateboarding, so one afternoon we decided to take a ride through the neighborhood. The only problem was that it was about 95 degrees out! I think we skated for about 15 minutes before turning around and heading back, and by the time we got to the house we were dripping in sweat. Luckily you can’t see it in any of these photos!
I went a bit outside of my comfort zone with this outfit – during a recent trip to H&M I spotted this adorable pair of overalls, and although they don’t quite fit in with my typical style, I just had to pick them up!
I accessorized with a bandanna headband for a little bit of vintage flair, and I love the all-American look!
I also wore my favorite Puma bag, and a new envelope necklace from Charming Charlie – so small and sweet! 🙂
Our skateboarding adventure was cut short due to the insane heat, so we decided to go out crabbing once it got a bit cooler after dinner.
We were joined by Dave’s brother and our two nephews from Wyoming – I think it was their first time crabbing! This was actually my first time crabbing with a net, as in the past I had always used a cage. You definitely have to be a little more patient when pulling up the line so that the little guys don’t fall off!
Speaking of “little guys,” the crabs we caught were all too small to keep. It didn’t matter much to me either way, since I don’t like crab and had no intention of eating them regardless!
As it got darker out, the bugs started to emerge and I had no interest in getting eaten alive so I took a stroll away from the water’s edge to take some photos of the sunset.
We had such a great time!
