Well, Fall, I am officially ready for you whenever you are ready to show your face here in Dallas. I never thought I would say this (because, summer forever), but I am ready to pack up my linen dresses for the season and pull out the sweaters…Bring on sweater weather!
We are in full wedding mode around the house! It’s officially Mackenzie and Will’s wedding week and guests started arriving on Monday. There are a few little last details that we are finishing up this morning, but then the party begins!
Because neither Mackenzie nor I have enough on our plates right now, we decided to pick up a new hobby yesterday. Any guesses what it is?
Is anyone else having a hard time believing we are already in Mid-August? With the new season quickly approaching I have been scoping out all of my favorite sites for new arrivals. I think I am still in denial that I am going back to Dallas and the weather will not be fall-like until early October, but the thought of a cozy cashmere is getting me pretty excited!
Mackenzie comes back to Nantucket today from a quick trip off the island for her dress fittings. I am excited to have my roomie back in town. Her return is the perfect excuse for a late afternoon dip in the ocean!
I have been on a major online shopping binge since being on the island since there is limited in-store shopping. However, I have been doing a little window shopping at CJ Laing, Ralph Lauren, Shift, Milly and Grace and Erica Wilson.
Maybe it’s just me, but I have been having a major urge to go on a little shopping spree. The stores are having amazing sales to make room for their pre-fall collections and I can’t help but get sucked into filling my cart with the steals of the century (okay, maybe this is a little overboard, but hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do). Thankfully, I have at least three more months of warm weather before I really start wearing anything Fall-like.
I don’t know if it is the fact that I am dressing for different weather than Dallas, but I have filling my cart with so many new arrivals and sale items this week.
After cleaning out my closet this weekend, I have lots of empty hangers ready for new, pretty things. Honestly, what I realized after my major purge was that I was only missing a few key pieces to make my closet complete. But if I am being realistic, I will probably fill up the rest of the empty hangers before the end of the year ;)
Is anyone else ready for the official kick-off to pool season, cutoff shorts, juicy watermelon and songs of the summer? We will be spending our memorial day weekend with some great friends up in the mountains for a wedding. If it wasn’t supposed to be in the low 50s and rainy in Colorado, I would definitely be wearing a swimsuit my new shorts. I seriously cannot get enough of my perfect fitting Levis. They were definitely a little bit of a splurge, but after looking for the perfect fit for over a year, I have to say, they were worth every penny.
Mother’s day is right around the corner and there is nothing I love more than to spoil my mama, because let’s be honest, she is the best and the reason I am the person I am today.
We are SUPER close, like the kind of closeness where you talk on the phone at least three times a day. Does anyone else do this with their mom? Just me, cool…I’m totally okay with it.
