Sweet, sweet summer! It’s here! I’ve been off on vacation all week, and it feel so nice to be almost 100% caught up on everything. The apartment is spotless (for a second 😆), my car is vacuumed/cleaned, my inbox is empty, my to-do list is sparse, errands are finished, and all I have to do tonight is just wrap up a few things for the blog, get groceries for the weekend, and pack for our long weekend away up north! I told myself to relax a bit more before we left for the long weekend, but eh, that’s just not my personality to sit around and do nothing. I feel much happier knowing I knocked a bunch of stuff off my list. THAT’s vacation to me. Hahaha.
It’s been hot hot though here! This was maybe one of the last “cooler” nights before this 90 degree weather kicked in. But honestly, it couldn’t have come at better timing. We had sort of a weird cold spring, and even just a couple of weeks ago, I was thinking… how are we going to do the fourth with such crummy weather?! So looking ahead, the days look hot, the nights look tolerable for sleeping in a tent, and I’m so pumped to spend our days on the lake, our nights by the fire, eating the most delicious food, drinking all the wine, spending time with my favorite people, eeeep! Life is good.
I picked up a few dresses from Madewell just in time for the weather to arrive too! I got this dress on super sale. It’s so cute on, and I love the color, but from some angles, it’s sort of frumpy. Hahaha, oh well. That’s kind of my style — to like frumpy, mom-ish things. I’ve been pinning all of my latest purchases to my ‘closet’ board on Pinterest, so be sure to follow along there if you want to see what I’ve been picking up before I style them for the blog! Pretty much all I want to wear anymore is Madewell. I don’t know if that’s going to get boring for the blog, but I don’t know, I don’t really care. 😂 I’ve tried H&M so many times lately, Old Navy, blah. I did get a cute new skirt from Express (where I never shop!) that’ll be coming to the blog soon, but yeah, I mean Madewell kills it. Always.
OH, funny (well sort of creepy) story about these photos. So I’ve been taking some of my own blog photos lately, just due to our crazy schedules, and I was really struggling with this post. First I went out to the apple orchard, and I just felt like the lighting was so off. I got a few that could work for IG, but not for an entire blog post. So I was driving home, sort of in a panic, the sun is setting, I was thinking I’d just miss out. So I was feeling sort of defeated, and saw this little spot in our neighborhood. So I was like, oh cute! I’ll get some here! So I was snappin’ away, and I mean, I get it. A girl with a tripod taking her own photos is weird, but I look up at this house, and there’s just some creeper recording me. Like… I acknowledged him/her, gave them a dirty look like… um, I see you, they didn’t stop. I just got like MAJOR creeper vibes from it, so I immediately packed up and bolted. Hahaha, so just yeah. The fun elements of being a fashion blogger some days. 😂 Alright, I’m off! Hope you guys have a great holiday weekend!
