Tolani Tunic Dress

The lake is one of our favorite spots at the cabin. We hike around it, we fish, and my Grandpa used to tell us the scariest stories about Mrs. Marchant who is buried under the lake. You can see the cross the covers her grave just around the side of the lake if you look closely. I seriously used to have nightmares because he would scare us so bad. Even so, we still come down every year because it’s “the lake”. One year a moose swam right past my dad in his floatie and ran up the hill on the other side. I’m also pretty sure we haven’t gone a year without someone falling in or getting pushed in. P.S. It’s freezing. (Not fun!)

You may or may not remember this print from my beach cover up that I wore in Carlsbad…I bought this dress a while ago at Anthropologie and was waiting for it to get warm enough to wear. Then I found the cover up and was obsessed (the elephants of course)…when it came i the mail I was like, O this looks familiar…yeah that happened, but I love them so much I just decided to keep both of them. They’re different enough and for totally different situations right?

Summer Shorts

I love the summer, because I really hate wearing pants. I hate jeans. I mean I like the way they look, but I HATE being uncomfortable and shorts are my favorite thing in the world. I need to move somewhere that I can wear them year round. I will literally wear shorts to my freezing cold office and just bring a blanket because I would so much rather do that. I do however rather enjoy jeans shorts, and that is most likely what you will catch me in on a day to day basis during the warm months. BUT more so I cannot get over how many cute printed and colorful shorts there are out there right now. So here are some fabulous shorts I found searching around for summer!

Stripes at the Beach

Just a few more quick photos from Carlsbad. Our condo is right on the beach, so I get to fall asleep and wake up to the ocean. I love it. I love going for a jog in the morning or just a walk. There are usually dolphins out past the waves in the morning, which is my favorite thing ever. I wish I lived here.stripes9_2stripes6stripes7_2stripes5_2stripes2_2
