We spent a long weekend in Avalon last week. The Pope was in Philly, so schools and roads were closed, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity for some much-needed family time.
It turns out that fall in Avalon is glorious. Cool temps, thundering waves, and shells as far as the eye can see. Most of our mornings were spent on the beach, bundled up (at least I was) and then back home for hot chocolate and warm baths. We rented a place with a foozball table, so afternoons were spent cooking, foozballing, and day drinking. I mean. Bliss, right?
But there’s nothing like weekend packing to really winnow your closet down to the essentials. If you follow me on Instagram (@shanachristine), and I’d love it if you would, you know we’ve been talking about raincoats lately, and other cozy things. So I thought I’d share a few of my well-worn favorites.
