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.

[4] We took our engagement photos!  More on this to come.  [5] I fell in love with orange kalanchoe. [6] Our indoor garden grew! [7] #SailBoston did not disappoint!  [8] We went to one of my favorite places: Watch Hill, Rhode Island. [9] Summer blooms were around in full force!

I do have a backlog list of posts and videos that I promise will be coming your way soon!  For now, enjoy your Fourth of July holidays!

More June Snaps

Hey guys!  While you’re reading this, I’ve started my Fourth of July vacation in the ocean state!  Follow me along on instagram to see what I’m up to!

In the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of my lost snaps from June.

The top photo was taken in Watch Hill, Rhode Island on my way to Taylor Swift’s house… she’s on tour, though, and sadly wasn’t home to greet me.  In all seriousness, I’ve loved this coastal village forever.  It’s one of many destinations on my summer checklist every summer.

The bottom photo is an outfit of the day taken on the last day of June.  I bought this cute little H&M dress last weekend.  What’s better than easy, breezy dresses for the office that you can dress up or down?  I’m looking forward to adding black tights and making this piece work for all seasons!  I’ll be sharing a couple other H&M purchases on the blog soon.

That’s it for today!  I’m off to work on my tan!

Any plans for the Fourth?

 

Photo Finish: Summer 2014

Though the season itself isn’t quite done, I can’t help but feel September’s approach means that summer is slipping away.  School is starting again for those who work in them or attend, and there’s already a cooler feeling to the air.  Well, I’ve got to say that this New England girl had a wonderful summer in Massachusetts and Rhode Island!

Watch Hill Hydrangeas

IMG_5622

 

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?
