Lunch at the Beach

Dress - Ross
Hat - Forever 21
Sandals - Ralph Lauren (Dillard's)

I had lunch with another great group of ladies yesterday.

Under the sponsorship of our school librarian (and brain child behind the group), the five of us were organized to develop a program that would work toward increasing the reading interest level among the male population at our middle school.  This was our second annual summer meeting, and rather than having it at school or a local restaurant, we took a little jaunt to Galveston beach.


 
Since it was a casual occasion, I wasn't trying to get all dressed up.  A simple black summer dress with a few accessories and oh-so-necessary sandals seemed to fit the bill.

We found a nice stretch of beach that was lightly populated where we walked, talked, and shared ideas about our goals for the next school year.
Afterwards, we continued working through our agenda while having lunch at a seaside restaurant and then delicious confections from the sweet shop across the street from the restaurant.  In our four-hour long sojourn, we had some fun-in-the-sun and took care of business!



Wouldn't it be nice to have all school/company meetings at the beach?  ;)
