The Love Shacks of Topsail Island

I live for these hot summers, twirling around the island, barefoot and all, with kaleidoscope eyes catching the sun’s prisms and turning the sky into cotton candy clouds.

Topsail Island is a place where sherbet tones meet sandy shores, allowing the decades to live on. The beach shacks dance to their own tune, with loud pops of color balancing the structures of some of my favorite times. The ’50s and ’60s architecture, paired with ’70s and ’80s paint jobs are a groovy mix that make these shacks give off so much love.

This little gem covered in bubblegum paint will always have my heart. I find myself taking in the heat, day dreaming of the moment in time I make this boho beach bungalow mine. Fat palm trees and bleached out paint bring a ‘Miami Vice’ element to the place that brings some spice, and a size that keeps it humbly sweet.

I spent the weekend in color, skipping my way up and down the coast, chasing each house that had that certain vibe to it. Denim cutoffs, staked flamingos, hair with a mind of its own. Island time puts me in my element.

My uncle has a house on Topsail! It’s the only “round” house on the island…an architectural gem in itself! Topsail is a magical place. ..Bike everywhere, beaches to yourself,shag at night, and one of the best Italian delis in the south!

I think it is Topsail in NC right? I love the pictures. Owning a home like that in Topsail Beach is a dream!
