Boardwalk and Lighthouse

Last Friday after work I headed home to Long Island to visit my mom and she suggested a beach picnic for dinner. We packed the car, took a short drive to Robert Moses State Park on Fire Island and took a stroll down the boardwalk toward the lighthouse. I love being home, smelling the salty air, bayberries and pine. Its like being a little girl again with my mom, pointing out birds and scents and pink sand.
We did have one awkward moment that you may be aware of if you follow me on Twitter...there is a small area of beach that is clothing optional. When we climbed the wooden stairs over the dunes, my mom turns to me and goes, "Oh, I forgot this was a little bit of a nude beach." Ah well, live and let live.
Our clothes stayed on and I was quite excited to finally wear this playful vintage top with the bright colored yarn detail and ruffled neckline. The shirt is a bit large and of course I never got around to taking it in, luckily it balances out my skimpy shorts for that breezy, beachy vibe.
