Independence Day Weekend Photo Diary

in front of the surf bar

A breezy, beachy weekend filled with food and sand. I always appreciate time to travel and spend outdoors during the summer. Only thing you have to worry about is the sunburn. I’m out of my favorite Neutrogena Dry-Touch, but a while ago I got a sample of Supergoop’s mineral sunscreen in a gift bag and it worked well for me.

I had a serious red, white and blue theme going on… so much that during the day I even wore pink lipstick instead of my usual red. For a lot of occasions I do like pink more than red during the summer. Pink always seems more fresh and modern to me on a hot summer day.

Hope you enjoy all of my photos!

My favorite Cole Haan Air Tali wedges. Great for walking!

It was a very overcast weekend, but we did eventually see a bit of sun.

I really need to change up my makeup sometime. I think I’ve had the same basic routine for four years now.

Experimenting with very soft focus.

    Love the soft focus, you re a pro with the camera and it is a joy to see each shot. Love the dot dress, and the red toe nails! I agree, cole haan has great waking shoes. I need to get there. Love the bits of sand on the striped towel. All the details…
