much love, monday...sort of.

beach stuff

Hi everyone!  Much Love, Monday is postponed this week because I'm at the beach!  I took the above photo while I was packing some of my seashore essentials.  I'm about halfway through 'I Drink For a Reason' by David Cross, and I'm really enjoying it.  I never liked Arrested Development, but Cross's absurdist essays are irreverent and fun while still remaining thought-provoking.  The other book I want to read this week is 'Consider the Lobster' by David Foster Wallace, but I'm saving that until after my family has our annual crab night.  I don't want any crustacean-induced guilt.

My other beach essentials that aren't pictured here include a cover-up dress, an oversized button-down shirt, a sheer cotton scarf, and a bottle of SPF 50.  My skin color hovers somewhere between porcelain and paper, but I refuse to get sunburned.

I hope you're having a fantastic week!


  1. you are adorable Julie! those books look good! I might need to pick them up...I love Arrested Development so I feel like I might really like 'I drink for a reason' . I need new book suggestions so thanks for sharing! Hope you're doing well and having a great summerrrr.

    1. Aw, thanks Katie! Both books were really good, but 'I Drink for a Reason' was hilarious and definitely better beach reading. (I love David Foster Wallace's essays, but holy footnotes, batman.) I hope you're doing well too, your photos from Europe were amazing!

  2. Have a great time on the beach! See you soon!
