Is there anything better than visiting a wonderful friend who also happens to live at the beach? After week two of renovating, I'm really, really tired. And a day at the beach was so nice and relaxing for the little lads and me.

So, sans makeup, and a change of clothes for the kids (how can a child not get wet at the beach, no matter how cold it is?), we were off. And yes, the weather was miserable. We ate lukewarm chips in the rain while being blown away by the cold wind. But note to self: if you run around enough, you actually can warm up a bit. And that's just what the boys did.

We retreated to the beach house where my friend lives and sipped on creamy hot chocolate, and chatted while encouraging my two year old to dodge the many guitars in the house. (A little like the challenge that lies at our place.) Besides the weather, the day was a wonderful success. On the way home, I had two boys snoring quietly in the back seat. In fact the trip was so quiet, I did ponder on having a little nap myself... 

And look. See? I'm having a little nanna nap while snapping this photograph. That's how tired I am.

Now, I'm off to pack up my entire kitchen so we can take out all the old cupboard carcasses. But exciting moment. This means the new ones goes in soon!

a day in the life of us


  1. rocking your outfit as usual!!

    how exciting about your kitchen reno - can't wait to see pics!!

    i love the beach during winter, rolling seas, windy, blustery and cold = bliss!


  2. Super cute and casual - love!

    I hope you are going to do a before and after of your renovation...I love those :)

  3. Hi, Kymmie. Well, all I can say is that you still look fashionable even when you're tired. I love the whole get up but my most fave is the flats. Good for you to have a li'l break at the beach. Good luck on your kitchen renov ;-)

  4. Haha! You're such a cutie Kymmie! Sounds like you had a lovely time with your friend... and yes the beach is fantastic, I don't think I could live far from it, as it plays a big part in my life. Though I am looking forward to the weather warming up a bit more, so we can enjoy all facets of it! xo

  5. Girl you rock the stripes! I want to try the flat shoes and leggings look but think I need some more squats and lunges first.

  6. Perfect winter beach girl outfit, Kymmie. I do love a stripe (but just wish I had the bod to carry them off!). Glad you had such a great time off from the renos. Refreshing, I'll bet! x

  7. What a lovely break from your busyness! :)

  8. Love your outfit (as usual), looks comfy. Thought I would play link up, although am not stricly following the rules - I hope that is ok. AND sorry about the link up image - looks a bit lame.


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
