Happy Thursday y’all! This week has surprisingly flown by! Which I am not one bit upset about. I have honestly been looking forward to Saturday since Sunday. Joshua, Morgan, her BF, my best friend, her BF, and myself have plans to live it up Saturday night at Coyote Joe’s. One of my favorite spots in Charlotte! I cannot wait to pull out my cowboy boots and throw on a sweet spring dress! Do you have any big/exciting plans this weekend? 

Anyways, on to today’s post. My third and final look from our beach trip over Easter weekend. Take a look back at previous looks here and here. Today it’s all about beach sweaters and why you need one in your life. Yes, I am saying beach sweaters are a thing.

Okay, so what is a beach sweater?

A beach sweater is comfy, oversized, and maybe a little bit preppy. It is perfect for crisp morning walks along the water, cooler beach days or evening beach bombfires. I know you’ve experienced one of the three before and wished you had a sweater {or extra layer} with you. Personally, I have several of times! When I have been prepared I’ve been SO happy and it’s always been an oversized sweater. Perfect for throwing over whatever it is I am wearing. 

Why do I need one?

Well for all the reasons I listed above, duh! haha. But really, having the perfect sweater you can throw over just about anything when at the beach is totally necessary! When one of those chillier moments hit, you’ll be thrilled to have that comfy sweater to wrap up in!
