Coronado Beach Irish Cream




I wasn't in love with these pictures or this outfit from yesterday, but this dress deserved some fun in the sun before I decided to off it. I've only worn it once (I believe) and I loved it last time. Something about it didn't sit well with me this go around. I think it was the cream cardigan I paired it with. To be honest it's because it was the only one I could find in my room. Sad, I know. It definitely does no favors for my less-than-toned upper arms but still, I tried anyway. Mike said this outfit reminded him of a trip to California with his mom where they indulged in Irish Cream Ice Cream on the beach! Hence the title!

We started our day as usual with a walk around the neighborhood. My shins are starting to not like my choice of footwear for those long walks. Afterwards we laid in the hammock for a bit, just swinging. The air was crisp yesterday but nice. There's been a substantial wind, too. Almost felt as though we were living on the coast. Oh how I cannot wait! Seriously, these 2 weeks (less than 2 weeks even!) need to fly by so we can enjoy some roadtripping with Susannah and Chris! I'm so excited! It'll be great to have such wonderful friends along for the ride, too!

We decided to try and make that Tomato Basil soup today but it was too creamy for me. We obviously changed a lot of it up but that was the general idea if you're looking for a recipe! I like just straight-to-the-point-and-a-bit-spicy tomato soup. (Was that enough hyphens for you?) Although when I was lurking my friend Liz's blog today I found an even better sounding recipe!

Another neat post in the blogosphere would be this headband DIY from my friend Elle! She shows you a super insanely simple but totally cute braided headband how-to!

I've felt sort of in a funk lately so hopefully it'll pass! Happy weekend everyone!

  6. You look gorgeous! I love the dress and the cardi is cute too, but maybe-as you said- not right for the dress. It would have looked great with a navy or a mustard yellow cardi.

    I would love to have a hammock to lounge around in. That sounds fabulous.

    I hope you have a great day beautiful!

  7. Eek! That dress is too cute! Stripes + green = perfection to me.
    I feel like a little bit of a funk before an exciting trip (or anything) is normal... you just want it to to be here, but it seems so far away. I'm sure you'll be your peppy self in no time!

  8. I really like the dress and think you look fabulous in it. But I totally get it when you buy something and you love it but then a couple months down the road it just feels off for some reason!
    Have a good weekend!
