surfing

“made of flesh. made of sand. made of human”

Here’s what I wore today:

It was a laid-back day off of work with plans to surf in the evening. I wore a camel-colored corduroy skirt by Bongo that I got at a thrift store not that long ago for a couple of bucks. I wore a brand new, plain white t that I got from Ross for $7.99 (I go crazy for a fresh white T/tank… I just love them!) I had my usual Sanuk flip flips on and borrowed my friend’s hat that was laying around the boys’ house.

Here’s how I accessorized:

(crappy cell-phone pic) My short silver chain w/ shamrock, long owl necklace, Lucky Brand Peace sign earrings, my claddagh ring, owl ring, silver chain bracelet, silver bangle, Alex & Ani star of venus bangle, earth tone beads and jade beads.

But that wasn’t my only look for the day. Once it was time to head to the beach I had to switch it up.

I borrowed the men’s Levi plaid button up and simply tied it around my waist. I wore a pair of white shorts for a small amount of time as well.

As soon as we got out there, the white shorts came off. Later on, once I was tired of being tossed around like a rag doll, I wore the shirt open and untied without the shorts.

I happened to be wearing the oldest bathing suit I own, but it’s an “old faithful” for me. It’s my black and teal Billabong bikini.

It was a glorious evening at the beach; we didn’t leave until well after the sun went down. The beach at dusk is beautiful… I may not have had any major break-throughs in my surfing “lessons”, but I got some writing down and generally just enjoyed the salty air and warm breeze.

Thanks for reading! Love, GK

I’ve been distant recently, I know. I’m sorry. But I’ve just been super busy. The good kind of busy! I’ve been spending some seriously quality time with my favorite people: Deeply discussing jukebox music and fighting to the death in darts, pool and shuffle board with my favorite boys while going drink for drink. Learning how to surf with my best girl and her beau.

I’ve been so stoked about my surfing lessons and wanted to do a little sharing/bragging. This Memorial Day, I had my second surf lesson and spent the day of remembrance playing in the waves between tropical storm bands.

 

There’s a peace I get from the beach that I get no where else. There’s a happiness I get from my family of friends that I can find in no others. It’s truly magic when the two come together. ♥
