Growing up far from anything resembling an ocean, I’m a person who still geeks out over the beach. This summer, I realized that during my two years living in North Carolina, I’ve only taken advantage of the close proximity twice, which is so shameful. With my best friend, Camellia, recently relocating to Wilmington, it was a great excuse for me to take the day off work and trade my desk in for a beach chair.
I decided to bring my camera along to snap some pics for any of my landlocked friends and to share my very casual beach style. I just bought these comfy little shorts on sale (woo!) at Versona, one of my favorite stores in Raleigh. This pair isn’t online anymore, but they have a bunch of other cute styles on sale, linked here. Of course, a cute beach bag is a must and this one is perfect for the occasion.
This post marks my 200th here on Courtney Fashionista and I’m excited to celebrate with such beautiful scenery. If you’re curious about my first blog post ever, here it is. Kind of crazy to look back on! Of course, I was still figuring all of this out and had no idea I’d write 199 more posts after that. Since many people ask, the most important thing that I’ve learned about blogging since then is to stay true to yourself and blog for the love of it. So in this post, I’m raising a fruity cocktail to cheers to 200 more posts on this little blog of mine! Hope there’s a lot more from the beach too!
