Not Quite Fall Weekend

Happy Friday, lovelies! And welcome to the weekend! I know everyone in the northern hemisphere, including myself, is in a fall state of mind but technically it's still summer and I still have the beach house so we'll be heading out there for the weekend.

And wouldn't you know it, the temperature just dropped to fall temps yesterday so it's going to be a rather brisk weekend at the beach. I'm packing all of my sweaters and my cashmere hoodie because it sounds like I'm going to need it.

Should be fun though. I've always dreamed of being one of those people all layered up, frolicking on the beach. Reminds me of something you'd see in the movies. Yeah, I think I watched too much of Grease back in the day. You know that opening scene while Danny & Sandy are saying goodbye on the beach.

And I just watched the movie Something Borrowed a few weeks ago and there was a great scene like that as well. Now it's my chance to try to recreate it :)

Have a fabulous weekend, sweets!

xoxo

I loved that movie because I had read the book first and I always like to compare the book to the film. I have spend many chilly days walking the beach all bundled up! The beach is good in any type of weather in my opinion! Have a great weekend, Dawn. Thanks for your sweet and caring email yesterday... love u! xo

Shelly said...

The shoot is awesome, i love the fact that there's nobody on the beach... Just you and no one else, maybe your thoughts.

Elena said...

Have fun doing that Dawn! Being on the beach ias almost always lovely - the air, the sounds ... and yes, a great excuse to start wearing soft sweaters again!

Dancing Branflake said...

You know, being on the beach all bundled up is one of my favorite memories. Especially with Wellies and a hooded soft sweater. And the waves are so loud and big it's truly a wonderful experience.

I was just thinking of spending a fall weekend at the seaside. It still summer weather here too, but a cosy knitwear would surely be needed in the mornings and evenings. Have a beautiful weekend, Dawn! xo

I've been in fall denial and yesterday fall came in to slap me into seasonal reality. i was not ready for that. Hopefully it will go back up to the 70's just for a few more weeks. Have a great time at the beach! I saw something borrowed on the plane and it so made me want to put on some plaid and cashmere and frolic on the beach!

Lonely Wife Project said...

I immediately covered myself in a plaid blanket while watching Something Borrowed ;) Have a great weekend at the beach!

i'm having a Movies Under the Stars night!

Cindy Albert said...

Always love your pictures! With everyone in blogland talking about fall, I decided to go shopping for a knit sweater and a couple of scarves.

Have fun at the beach. I hope to get there too. There is something about the cry of a seagull on an empty beach that is so compelling.

Noe @ ADELLA AVENUE said...

I have to say, I do love fall beach days. Such a cozy feeling, it makes you want to curly up with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Enjoy the weekend!

A BRIT GREEK said...

I love these kind of shots, girl wearing chunky knits on the beach, perfect!
I'm going to put Something Borrowed on my flicks to watch list now!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend Dawn!

I can't believe that I am reading about Something Borrowed second time today, and I am planning to watch it tonight :)

Fé... said...

I wish I live in a country with four seasons, the temperature here in Indonesia is still really hot, and will stay this way the whole year. Had it not, I would have bought all the fall fashion items and worn it everywhere!

Have a lovely weekend, dear Dawn.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i want to be one of those people layered in cardis frolicking on the beach as well. fall officially starts next week--can't wait!

Warmly hope you are having a nice weekend. xx

There's something so romantic about cashmere :) We're at 26 degrees today and it is LOVELY! Hello Spring!

Andrea Reh said...

I love spending dark autumns and winters at our beach house - it's almost as relaxing as in summer, but in an entirely different (and very cosy) way.
