Can you believe it’s August already?!
I’m pretty sure I blinked and July was over. Does anyone else feel the same?!
Even though some people are already getting excited for fall (which I mean….just no), there’s still A LOT of summer left, especially in San Diego. August, September, and October are typically the hottest months of the year. Fall doesn’t exist in So Cal, sadly!
Needless to say, there’s still plenty of time left to hit the beach. To be honest, I haven’t even had a full on beach day yet this summer. I know, I know….pretty bad, considering I’m only a couple miles from the beach. I’ve gone on beach walks and hung out near the beach, but haven’t had a true, hang out all day and actually get in the ocean type of beach day yet (in my defense, I’m not exactly the beachiest person, haha). I’m hoping to squeeze in a beach day soon though!
My beach style has been and always will be simple and practical. I’m super pale, so I always have lots of SPF (my mom instilled good sunscreen practices in me from a young age…she used to slather me with Bull Frog when I was little…does anyone remember that stuff?!), a big hat, and a cover up. I don’t tan, so I usually lay out for a little bit and then throw my cover up on right after. I also always have to bring tons of snacks and water. Being stuck on a beach without water is always my worst nightmare! I also have to bring a huge tote to carry everything in, and I’m obsessed with this pink striped one. So cute!
