Daily Threads: Coast Bound

 {Top, Carigan, & Belt: Target | Jeans & Scarf: TJ Maxx | Boots: Steve Madden}

Today we are heading to the beach. Bright and early. Kind of a weird and random trip to take? For most, but my dad's mother lives at the beach {Atlantic Beach, NC} and we are going to spend the day with her - then heading back home. A day of traveling back and forth, but that's what happens during the holidays. I'm glad we get to see and spend time with her. 

Tomorrow I am heading to my beloved Raleigh. Chris is flying in late at night and I am heading to Raleigh a little early to do some {unnecessary} shopping and spend some quality time with my fraannnd, Tyra! {shmeeee! so excited!}

I love Raleigh. It's my favorite city. It holds lovely memories of school and love, moments of personal growth, and an indescribable feeling of comfort. I love First Friday, going to Tobacco Road to watch NC rivalry football and basketball games, watching Kooley High perform, eating delicious pizza at Lily's, and seeing cars pass me on the beltline with NC State decals. It's the perfect city for me. I'll see you tomorrow, Raleigh.

That all sounds so fun! My boyfriend will be in Raleigh for Christmas to spend time with his sister and his niece. I've only been there once, and I hardly remember it. I'd love to go visit again!

awe I have several friends from college living in Raleigh. I think I've only been there once and it was for a concert or something I believe... I got lost in the middle of nowhere trying to get back to Roanoke becuase my best friend has no sense of direction. Sighhhhh.

Have fun!

LOVE the belted sweater look. I haven't tried it out myself yet but I want to.

By the way, I'm super jealous that you get to go to the beach.
