Duck, Duck, Beach

This year's vacation took us back to OBX, NC and it (once again) did not disappoint. The weather was perfect every single day. The temp never rose above 82 and that ocean breeze stayed with us during our time there. 

While making our way to Corolla to take a wild horse tour (more on that later), we passed through the cutest town and knew we had to make the short drive from Salvo back up to Duck to soak in the town's charm and treasures. For my SWVA folks, it's a lot like Abingdon but on the coastline.

We happened to park right next to a sign pointing to a beach boardwalk. Thank goodness we stumbled upon this because it was the highlight of our visit to Duck. But, the town's overall Southern feel and locally owned shops didn't disappoint!

FYI: If you happen to visit the Outer Banks this summer and are a fan of Anthropologie (who isn't?), you HAVE to stop in and say "hi" to the ladies at Barr-ee Station at the Waterfront Shops! They specialize in selling top brand names at discounted prices. As I scanned the racks, I immediately spied familiar brands and pieces carried by Anthro! Fortunately, the selection wasn't limited to very small or very large sizes like some retailers. I snagged two tops at 50% off the original price. I wanted more, but this girl had a budget to stick to. Oh, and all tags were still attached! There's also a location in Charlottesville, VA.

We also found a doggy bakery and picked up some treats for Essie Mae.

Overall, Duck = perfection!
I mean, this is too cute.
Comfort is key for me when exploring in the sun. I wore my bangs braided to the side every day. Although I'm sporting pretty much all J Crew Factory, my friends in SWVA need to visit the Glass Slipper Boutique for some incredibly soft summer tops!
