The Beach in November

The Gent and I decided to get away for a couple of days and we went to Orange Beach. It was the beginning of November, after all, and it was a tad on the cool side. We loved it all nonetheless. The Gent is definitely a beach person. I am not. But…. we were together and away from our schedule and routine, we were away from home and on a mini-vacation. So I couldn’t complain.

It was odd weather. It wasn’t freezing cold and yet it wasn’t burning up hot either so it was a little questionable about what to pack. Mostly, I wore shorts and thin long sleeve v-neck sweaters. But then I also had this wonderful lightweight scarf with me too. It was good for “long walks on the beach.”

I purchased this scarf a couple of years ago from Target and it’s come in handy a lot of times. Like I stated above, this scarf was just right for beach weather where it was a little windy and on the cooler side. Personally, I thought I looked all stylin’ and movie-star-ish while traipsing up and down the beach with The Gent.

On another note – I also purposefully did NOT bring any makeup with me. I decided before we left that I wasn’t going to bring any makeup on this trip. And I didn’t. I also didn’t bring my flat-iron but I did manage to pack a hair dryer. But I knew we were just going to hangout and relax most of the time. We would definitely go out to eat but I still decided to go makeup-less. This is not something I would do on a regular basis and not at home or for work. I enjoyed not having to mess with makeup for a few days.

No makeup but lots of camera app filters!

Anyway, we had a great time but now it’s back home and back to work for the both of us.

Thanks for reading,

    OMG!! You will not believe this! I just got back from Orange Beach Sunday!!!!! The weather was amazing. It’s crazy that we’ve been in the same area two times recently! Maybe the third time will be the charm for us!
