beach, ruffles and shadow and jumping pictures - oh, my!

if it's not pockets, it's ruffles.

but there are pockets in this post. remember the skirt i was obsessing over last week? yup. it's made yet another appearance, esp. since you can bury my hands deep into these pockets. they are huge pockets. nothing goes in them but my hands so they are perfect. 

so today i got more beach pictures for you. the boy and i took a lot of walks on the beach. you would too if you could in the middle of november! this is absolute bliss for us since we were not blessed with this  back in Chicago. the fact that we can wear sleeveless shirts and shorts is uuuh-mazing!

Sweet Shot Day

like i've mentioned before, ryan and i are going the long-distance route for a little while until we get married, so we cherish every second we can get with each other. we've always loved these walks on the beach but there is something different about them. we can walk and not say anything or we can walk and talk about everything, but what matters is that we're together.

we also love walking through the soft white sand, closer to the dunes. apparently other people love it there too, particularly the ones that like to layout with some privacy. for good reason, of course.

and this outfit post would not be complete without some of sort of silliness included.
like say, a jumping pic? is it not so attractive?! (ha!)

hope you are having a fantastic holiday week! 

ready to eat up some turkey and lots of gravy and stuffing? how about any lovers of pumpkin pie out there? (me!me!me!)
and if you don't live in the US and aren't celebrating thanksgiving, 
i still hope you are having a blast of a week! 

btw, did you get a chance to meet lindsay of aisle to aloha yet?
if not, you should! 

[happy tuesday, friend!]
