Perfect Saturday

This past weekend was one of those fabulous weekends where you literally ache on Sunday night because it's come to an end. As I mentioned, we drove out to Point Reyes on Saturday for an amazing picnic/barbecue, complete with fresh oysters that you shuck yourself. I, of course, did no shucking. I ate a ton, but the boyfriend did the shucking, thank goodness. As accident prone as I am, I probably would have lost a thumb, although it would have been for a good cause. The oysters were delicious! We rounded out our feast with gourmet cheeses, wine, proscuitto, breads, barbecued chicken, sausages, sauteed clams, and homemade strawberry shortcake. SUPER thanks to my girl, Miss B, for preparing most of the yummy grub!

I couldn't resist going with a nautical themed outfit since we were heading to the water, and this navy tunic and white shorts proved to be comfortable and weather-appropriate all at the same time. I felt like the outfit looked a little boring and was thrilled to add a teal belt, since navy and aqua is becoming one of my favorite new color combinations for the summer. There's just something about white shorts and a brightly colored belt that screams summer, and the outfit got me excited before we even loaded up the car to head to the beach.





After our serious chowfest, we packed in our goodies and headed to a local beach (where I found a great graffiti wall...I love graffiti art!) to watch the dogs play in the surf and sip on some more wine. Well, let's be clear here, my dog refused to go anywhere near the surf (uh, it would mess up her hair!) and sat on the beach blanket with me while our friends' dogs played in the water. The weather was in the high 70s and amazing. It was one of those perfect days that can really only happen in the summertime. Have I mentioned that I love summer?
