i swear that going to the beach is the answer to everyone’s problems…well mine at least.
this week has been super stressful, so having time to be able to go to the beach and soak up the sun was definitely needed. i don’t think it really starts to feel like summer until you have that first REAL beach day. finding a great beach in new york that’s accessible is sometimes a little challenging. however, i went to long beach in long island with my friend ryan and stayed the entire day. long beach is a real beach. it’s not coney island or the east river or anything else that the city has to offer. it’s absolutely beautiful and an adorable beach town. one of my co-workers (mike) who lives out there happened to be on the beach the same day as us, so we chilled with him all day, too!
i was feeling super nautical so i put on my saint james for coach drawstring shirt and white shorts. the combo felt really perfect for the day. the looseness of the shirt let me feel comfortable all day without being too hot. i scored these awesome sunglasses from a thrift store on astoria boulevard in astoria for $2…doesn’t get better than that. i was definitely a little afraid that i’d get burnt (because i’ve been pretty scorched already this season), but i wound up with a pretty nice tan!
have you ever been to long beach?
comment if you have somewhere else to beach in new york!
