Knit Poncho + DIY Distressed Hem Crops + Converse (Sunset on the Beach)

 Even when we have warmer spring days, the evenings on the beach can still be pretty chilly.

I took these over almost 2 months ago, but even now, we layer up in the evening.  BUT…not for long!!  We’ve bit inching into the high 70’s during the day, and I cannot wait for warm summer evenings!

I love the ease and comfort of a poncho!  Totally takes me back to my high school days when the Mexican blanket poncho was all the rage!

Now…I’ll do a fun knit instead 🙂 These are one of my FAVORITE pairs that I’ve chopped (and that’s saying a lot considering I’ve gone a little crazy chopping haha)

I played around with the hem instead of just doing a straight chop.  I love how they turned out!  Love… BUT…love these even more! Dancing on a rock…as she does…. And these kids flares?!!!

DYING! Yes….this is why we suffer through the 9 months of cold and rain….

Hunter Boots on the beach at sunset…

 We used to go down and play on the beach at sunset a lot more when the Huz traveled every week for work.  Now that he doesn’t travel as much anymore, we haven’t been going down there…

I realized just how much I miss it!

Truth be told, these were taken back in NOVEMBER!!  Yes, I’m a tad behind blogging…

The winter cloudy sunsets are soooooo pretty!  But, they could easily be spring sunsets!
I can’t resist twinning in thrifted Hunter boots!! Looooove these!

Keeping it Real…
Usually when we go to the beach, Maya just takes off running/exploring.  Sometimes it’s hard to wrangle her BACK to take a few pics here and there.  Sometimes I resort to ridiculous attempts to get her to come back haha.
My high tech set up for getting the boots shots above… 😉
