Let me just tell you. You don’t want to come to Rexburg for spring break. It’s been snowing!
I’d love to get out. Go to the beach.
I’ll make a confession. I haven’t ever seen the ocean.
Technically I’ve seen the San Francisco Bay and the Puget Sound, but never in my life have I stood on the beach and looked out at that endless body of water.
I know I’m missing out.
My current dream vacation is the Oregon Coast. The Oregon Coast was my Grandma-Great’s favorite place. I’ve been told it’s pretty cool and windy on the beach, so I wanted to create a look that was a little warmer than just swim trunks.
Sweater: Upcycled sweater from Old Navy; Classic Ringer Tee
Pants: Medium weight cotton from Joann remnant bin, zebra print fat quarter; Little Gentleman Pants and Vest
I didn’t know how much I loved boat shoes until I had a name to attach to the style. These were passed on to Mack from my cousins Jack and Sam.
From boat shoes I started looking for a sort of beach/sailing style. I knew I had to do white slacks and blue striped top.
I love these little white slacks. They are a huge guilty pleasure. If I didn’t sew, there’s no way I would buy my almost 3-year-old white pants. I have already had a heart-stopping incident involving chicken nuggets and ketchup. We changed outfits in the middle of dinner and the clothes are still safe. I let Mack pick the fabric for the pocket lining. It’s light blue with zebras. He was really excited about the pockets. I love the little welt back pockets and the side pockets. I can just imagine him filling them with little beach treasures.
I love this blue sweater. My mom bought it from the clearance section of Old Navy several years ago for my brother. When Dane grew out of it he passed it to Nathan because he knew how much I love it. Nathan wore it a few times to appease me, but finally confessed that he didn’t love it. I moved it into my fabric stash, and I think this was the perfect project for it. I made the Classic Ringer Tee in a size 3 so that it could be layered over other clothing. Mack will be 3 in June, but is still solidly wearing size 2.
I think the separate elements of this outfit will all get a lot of love.
Maybe we’ll make it to the Oregon Coast in a few years…
Baden can wear this.
Mack had fun getting to play in Daddy’s drift boat while I took pictures.
