Adventure number one, and I am already head over heels for this country! The girls and I jumped at the first opportunity we got to go to the beach (goodbye Boston snow), and Coogee Beach was the perfect pick. The white sand was crowded with locals and tourists, but it wasn’t hard to find a place to plop a towel down and get some sun––or a lot of it! The water was cold, but worth a good dunk when we started burning up––which I’m learning is inevitable in the Aussie sun. For a break from the heat, restaurants, gelato shops, and beach boutiques are a quick walk across the street.
And, let’s not forget about beach fashion––a cute swimsuit is only half the look. When searching for coverups or beach inspo, look to neutrals, linens and, of course, pompoms! Also, wrap skirts and wrap shirts are great options because they are easy to throw off and on. Here’s my look from my Coogee Beach day:
I am a true believer in the saying “everything is better by the beach,” and the fact I am spending my next four months here…learning…is going to take a while to comprehend.
Missing all of my people back home and around the world.
