feels like summer.

One of my favorite things to do when we have some free time, now that we’re on the East Coast, is go explore the shoreline.  Our farm is only about 25-30 minutes form the water, and I love that we’re so close.   We’ve been to several little New England beach towns now, Newport, RI, Mystic, Madison, and Old Saybrook, CT to name a few.  You know what?  They are exactly what you’d picture them being.  New England isn’t short on charm, that’s for sure, and every town seems just as quaint and filled with gorgeous cape style homes and little Inns, pretty boardwalks and long coastal grasses as the next.  It’s the quintessential American summer scene, and I feel like I’m waking up in a Normal Rockwell painting.

make it pink.

Hey ladies!  HAPPY FRIDAY!

I’ve got this fun pink front tie shirt look for you today, and a few updates on our life right now.

First of all, I don’t even know if I’ve mentioned this at all this week, but we got a puppy last Friday! We just moved onto a farm a few months ago, got a bunch of chickens, and thought it was time to add a good hearty farm dog to our family.  So naturally, we fell in love with a toy poodle that weighs approx. 1 pound.  (Not exaggerating.) But seriously though, he is the cutest, sweetest little dog ever.   We named him Ollie, and he basically spends all day trotting around behind us cracking us up, and all night keeping me up.  Crate training is no joke!  I feel like I have a newborn.

summer capsule packing.

English Factory Top. Similar Jeans. Brixton Hat. Hat Attack Straw bag. Studded flip-flops. Karen Walker sunglasses.

Road trips have been part of our summers pretty much since our family got started.  We’ve almost always lived far away from family so driving for visits was a yearly thing.  Now that we’re on the East Coast, we’re not really in driving distance of our family (unless we want to drive for several days straight) but we have lots of New England road trips planned for the next few years, and I am so excited to explore our new home.  Packing for travel can be such a headache, especially when you’re packing for 6 not just 1, and I like to think of myself as a packing ninja now.  Because when you have to fit clothes for that many people in 1 car, it is ALL about efficiency.  Enter: capsule packing.

look for less: white eyelet summer dress.

dress. sandals. bag. hat. necklace.

One of the requests a lot of you had when I asked what you’d like to see on the blog, was for more “look for less” type posts.  Basically, I find great alternatives to your favorite designer pieces.  I love this kind of thing, so I jumped right in.  Today, I’m starting with the white eyelet/lace summer dress.  There are so many pretty white dresses out this year.  I love all the eyelet and lace I’m seeing everywhere, but some of the pieces I’ve found are super spendy.  I love a pretty dress as much as the next girl, but I’m not sure I’d pay over $300 for one unless it was for a special occasion.  Plus, I wanted something easy I could literally slip on when it’s super hot and humid outside and run errands or take my kids to the park and not worry about it.
