Summer Travels: Exploring Boston

How is it already August!? I feel like summer has gone by so quickly! (That could also be because I recently got promoted and I’ve been spending almost all of my time at work.) I’m sad to see summer coming to an end, but I’m so happy I was able to squeeze in a few trips. The most recent being my vacation to Boston and Nantucket. My sister, Emily, goes to grad school in Boston, so my dad and I decided to go visit her for a few days. After that, all three of us continued the vacation on the island of Nantucket (that will be a separate post). I had never been to Boston or Cape Cod, so I was extremely eager to see the cities.

TREND OBSESSION: Culottes

I remember being in elementary school and being obsessed with my army green culottes and my camo shirt with the little monkey on it from Limited Too. I never thought I’d be obsessed with culottes as a 21-year-old, but here I am. Pants are one of my favorite items of clothing because they’re so much fun to style. When I realized culottes were making a comeback I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some. I was planning on picking up a pair of black or white ones so they’d match everything, but when I saw these pink ones from Zara, I knew I had to have them.

The fit is great, and the wide-leg style is ideal in the summer heat. I also adore the kind that have a tie at the waist, since I’m a small girl. And who doesn’t love a good bow? They’re just so girly and fun. I can’t stop wearing them! I paired them with a simple white crop top and I loved the way it looked. How would you style culottes?

Yours truly,

Katie

Summer Travels: Wandering in New Orleans

“We wander through old streets, and pause before the age-stricken houses; and, strange to say, the magic past lights them up.”  – Grace King

Happy June, everyone! Usually this is my favorite month of the summer, but this stormy Florida weather is getting in the way of my beach days! Luckily, I got to kick off the summer in New Orleans. I went with Nick and his family to celebrate his 21st birthday. This was our third time visiting NOLA, and each time it gets better and better. We’re able to find new things we like about the city while also returning to some of our favorite spots.

Summer Date Night Look

file-1 (1)

Summer is one of my favorite times of the year for various reasons. However, the main reason is more free time!! Actually, this summer I’m balancing a part time job and two internships… Okay, I guess when I say more free time I really mean no school work. Having a break from classes and homework is truly such a relief.

So, instead of spending nights at the library with my boyfriend, we can make time for fun summer date nights. This look is what I put together for a recent night out in the beautiful Winter Park. Summer weather in Florida can be a little tricky. It can rain, be humid or just insanely hot. However, we were lucky enough to have great weather on this evening. It wasn’t too hot and the humidity wasn’t too high.
