Pink Pearls

I am really loving this bag from Everly Oak. It is so adorable and looks so classy while being very affordable. I also recently found this vintage pearl bow in the back of my closet and it is so cute! It was probably either my mom’s or my grandmother’s and I am so curious as to how she would have worn it.

Bell Sleeve Blush

Being home for a good chunk of time has been great. Lots of time for relaxation and reconnecting with my friends and family has definitely provided me with the rejuvenation I needed. I am looking forward to everything else this summer has to bring. I love these sleeves! This dress is so comfortable, flattering, plus the sleeves give such a fun vibe. It is perfect for those summer parties, barbecues, weddings etc.

Here is a similar dress but with a cute print that could be a great option. This blouse from Target is so adorable and definitely could be a more casual version with that same vibe.

Striped Bow Dress

I found this dress at Target just before leaving for Nebraska and it is amazing! The fit is great and I am really into blue and white right now. I have worn it several times already and it can be dressed up for nicer occasion or just worn to the Saturday farmers market. One of the best parts about it is that is was a great price especially for the quality! These pictures were taken in Nebraska (more to come on this trip!).

Summer Goals

Happy Memorial Day! It is definitely the holiday that marks the beginning of summer. It is a tradition in Boulder to go to the big Creek Festival during memorial day weekend and run the 10k through our city. This year I am not running due to an injury but I definitely will be hanging out with friends at the festival. For some reason this weekend has always marked the beginning of summer, probably because school has just ended and warm weather has finally set in. Barbecue season has begun and the reds, whites and blues are in true high style.

Here is my list of things to do this summer:

  1. Hit the beach: Yes I feel like I somewhat already accomplished this in the Bahamas but I do love going to the beach so much and I am hoping to go once more before the summer is over.
  2. Road trip: For some reason this has become a summer staple for me! Last year Aiden and I drove around Colorado, exploring my favorite places and parks and this year we are doing a girls trip to New Mexico to enjoy some pool side sun bathing and gorgeous views. There are an endless number of road trips all over the US and they are so great because you can truly tailor your trip to what you really want to be doing.
  3. See friends and family: Although I will be working for part of the summer, this is the first chunk of time I have had at home for several years and I am super excited to catch up with old friends and see family.
  4. Go sailing: Although Colorado is not the most nautical place I grew up sailing on the east coast and have a love for it even though I am very landlocked. This year the best chance I have will be on the Boulder Reservoir in a sunfish but that will have to suffice. We also have ample opportunity for paddle boarding and swimming.
  5. Hike a mountain: Getting outside always makes me feel better about myself. It is just incredibly freeing, no matter how high the mountain or how low the valley. It is also a great activity to do with friends because it gives so much time to really talk without the distractions of the outside world.

I am sure there are many more but these are my top goals for the summer! I am very excited for all this time in the sunshine after a grey Indiana winter.

Bahamas Adventure

Last night I got back from an amazing trip to the Bahamas! Most of the 11 days were spent sailing through the Exumas, but we spent some time in New Providence as well. I will do a more thorough travel diary later this week but I wanted to just quickly share some highlights. The focus of this voyage was research so we lived on the beautiful Beacon Won for most of the time. I would wake up to fresh coffee and breakfast every morning while sitting on the back deck watching the laughing gulls fly overhead and remora swim down below. We moved from island to island researching the Caribbean rock iguana, enjoying the beaches and snorkeling. Upon return from the field, a swim off the stern was highly anticipated. It was definitely a trip I will never forget. The days bookending our sail were spent visiting the Straw Market in Nassau and exploring Atlantis.

Red Sweater

This look is definitely an easy go-to look for school/work/play etc… I am more and more trying to fill my wardrobe with items that can easily be worn to work but that can also be styled for just going out and having fun. I suppose that’s what happens when it is time to find a real job! Although graduation was just over a week ago, the real world is starting to hit me. My brain is always occupied with what I will do next and I can’t seem to come to terms with the fact that in the fall I will not be returning to school.

White Romper

Happy May! It is graduation season which is a great excuse for some fun dresses and rompers. I have not decided what I will wear this Saturday but I have a few ideas, one of which is the romper I got from Abercrombie several months ago. I have not really worn it that much but it is actually so comfortable and I love the sleeves.
