Cropped Denim Sailor Pants + Striped Cardigan 2

Y’all. I am seriously in need of a beach trip! I love Atlanta, but the fact that it’s landlocked is definitely a downer sometimes, especially when coupled with the fact that I feel all out of sorts when I haven’t been to the coast in a while. There’s just something aboutΒ seeing the waves, feeling the ocean breezes, smelling the salty air, and staring at the horizon that puts things in perspective for me. All the day-to-day minutia and build-up of little things that ig me seem so small and unimportant in comparison.

So, that’s the backstory. The front story is the following convo I had with with my hubby before running out to meet some friends for lunch at JCT Kitchen:

Me: “I’m feeling beach-y, Babe. Do I look beach-y?”

Hub: (looking intently at the outfit he probably didn’t even notice I was wearing until I brought it up) “Yeah, you do. Because you’ve got that basket…”

Me: “It’s NOT a basket. It’s a straw bag. A purse.”

Hub:Β (leaning in for a kiss) “Well, it looks like a basket.”

Me:Β Sigh.

  1. Hilarious…I have that same “basket”…

  2. Hahahahah at “basket”!!!! You do look beachy. I like those shoes and that hat especially. Target was having a hat sale last week. Is that when you got the hat?

      I saw your tweet about the Target hat sale last week, and I was so sorry I didn’t get a chance to check it out! Hopefully, there will still be some good deals/finds when I do go to the store. I got the hat in these pics last year. Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

      • Joy and Sunshine says:

        Sometimes I just have to shake my head πŸ™‚ I don’t know which is worse, the fact that he doesn’t know a basket from a handbag or the fact that he wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if I was walking around with a random picnic basket. I do like to mix it up, so maybe he gets a pass πŸ™‚

  3. Hehe…Basket! LOL. Your hubs is funny.
    And I’ll take the basket and the shoes please. K. thanks. bye.

  4. Head-to-toe – love this entire outfit!

    • Joy and Sunshine says:

      Thank you! I traded the wedges for All Stars later in the day, making this already casual look casual-er πŸ™‚

  5. A basket? ROFL!! That is too funny! I actually love that basket and wish that you had gotten two. I will add the hat to my unneccesary weekly Target shopping list.

    • Joy and Sunshine says:

      Thank you! Yes, he said “a BASKET,” like I skip around with Easter baskets all year round.

  6. Ha! My husband has no idea what to call my straw bag either! Funny!

    I love sailor pants! I really am feeling your sandals too! Very beachy! πŸ™‚
