Au revoir, August

The summer’s been so busy.  Talking to my friends last weekend, it seems like we all experienced that.  I can’t say I’m happy that the summer is gone in the blink of an eye, but I’m so looking forward to September, October, November, and December.  The end of the year is going to be busy, but I’m so excited to get to 2018, when we’ll be tying the knot!  So, I won’t miss you, August… but here’s some of my favorite moments.

June, Going So Soon?

Alright friends, I think you can tell by the lack of posts lately that June has been a really hectic month.  How is it over already?  I didn’t get any of the posts up I wanted to.  I only read one book!

The good thing is, I took a lot of lovely photos that I’ll share with you now.

Watch Hill Hydrangeas

I picked up Essie’s Bikini So Teeny as a break-time pick me up one day during work.  After wearing it a couple times, I found that it kept reminding me of something… my absolute favorite flower, hydrangeas!

I paired this cornflower blue color with an old favorite for the accent nail, Essie’s Play Date, a fun, bright purple!  This truly made the manicure all about hydrangeas.  This manicure Monday, I’m showing my hydrangea inspired nails along with the most beautiful hydrangeas I’ve seen!  I found these beautiful flowers in Watch Hill, Rhode Island.  I made a trip there last weekend as well with some friends.  We stopped by Taylor Swift’s house while we were there…

How cute is this, though?

How cute is this, though?

We got a real kick out of this sign!  The guard was super nice and let us come up and snap some photos of it, and chatted with us about TSwift and (at my friend Chelsea’s request,) her cat!

Hope you all had lovely weekends!

What do you think of this hydrangea-inspired color scheme?
