Fall means I basically just live at the beach. Every year when the weather starts to cool down I just start writing post after post about how great it is (which will totally come back to bite me some day when everyone realizes how magical the beach is in cool weather!) The weather this last week or so is what I live for. It's not too cold but there is a definitely chill in the air. I don't know why exactly but I seriously just love it so much. If the weather could just stay like this all year long...

At my favorite beach there are two sections. One is like the main beach and the other is a little area on the other side of some trees that is pretty secluded. I've actually never seen anyone else hanging out on that part which makes it feel like it's my little secret. It's definitely not but it's fun to have somewhere in the city that it's almost a guarantee I can go there and be alone. It's also an awesome spot to take outfit pictures when the lighting is right. (Here's another post from the same spot!) The only thing is that for some reason all the trash washes up on this side. I mean, the other side is usually a mess too but this side is even worse. Surprisingly enough on my latest visit to take these photos there wasn't much trash at all but there was tons of beach glass! I found a few rare colors that I was super excited about and one of the coolest finds of all, a little porcelain doll hand. I can't decided whether I think it's the creepiest, or the coolest but you best believe it came home with me. It absolutely had to go in a jar with the rest of my neat-o beach finds.

  2. I found a porcelain doll butt once. It was a few years ago but I'm immature and can't stop giggling just thinking about it now ;D

    1. Thanks, Amanda! It was just orange for a while and it definitely felt like it was missing something. That pink made all the difference.
