The last few months of summer are notorious for going by faster than we can keep up with, and especially now that we have entered August, vacation season is starting to slow down. The good news is that there are still activities that you can do this summer to take full advantage of the season.
This summer I’ve made a vow to myself to be more active! This past year I have made countless excuses as to why I didn’t feel like working out which in the long run has made it harder for me to get back into the habit of exercise.
I am very impressed with the selection of cute and affordable summer dresses from J. Crew Factory. I originally saw this post by Carly from Carly The Prepster, and decided to take a look at the other dress options that are available.
Sometimes it is easy to forget that Instagram and the blog are two separate platforms. I wanted to do a little summer recap of some of my favorite moments, outfits, and places that I have gone too. To see more daily looks and lifestyle post- check out my Insta.
For some people wearing jeans in the summer is just asking for having a day of discomfort, but for me I love jeans and quite frankly am not always in the mood for shorts, skirts, or dresses. However, there is only one condition to which I wear them. They have to be a girlfriend or boyfriend fit.
I am truly shocked by how fast this summer is going. I can hardly believe that we are now half way through July – but I will admit that I am looking forward to the cool weather again. Last week, a friend and I ventured out to Hawk Ridge Winery which is located in Watertown, CT. As soon as we made the plans I could hardly contain my excitement, because 1. I have never been and 2. it is always nice to catch up and spend some time with friends!
When it comes to summer, I find that it is the best time to showcase my more playful side with color and patterns. I tend to keep my outfits simple but I love to accessorize with statement bags. Again this summer I am all about the straw bags, wicker bags, and colorful embroidered bags that truly allow my summer outfits to POP!
It has been a hot minute since I lasted posted on the blog and I am really excited to get back to it! Now that we are officially entering the summer months, I have been building my wardrobe with the essential pieces that I know will be my go-to’s. In the past, I have always stuck to the simple jeans, tee, sneakers or flats rotation for the summer. I would always feel like that would be a safe bet for me as I would always struggle with what to wear.
