Summer in the Books

Rise and shine e-friends. It might be Labor Day, but it is also the official un-offical end of summer. You know what that means, this chick must return to school tomorrow... le sigh. As much as I love summer and its glorious perks- which include and are not limited to; no school, peek sailing season, warmer temperatures, weekend trips, and so on- the familiar back to school giddiness is something that still exists after so many years. All and all it was a great summer for me. It was a completely difference experience as I wasn't at a camp or anything remotely similar and was truly able to create the most out of every moment. 

So to close out the past three months, here is a round-up of what I did, what I wore, & where I was... (side note: I'm loling to myself on how my "feed" changes each month)


I kicked off Memorial Day weekend up in Newport, returned home for a hot minute, then I was back in Newport for sailing once again. Along with sailing, I made killer friends like Carolina, started my job at The Green Slate, attended my first polo match, explored new neighborhoods of New York City and (breathe....) enjoyed my laziest days of summer- which in hindsight weren't that lazy.

Come July, I spent my favorite day of the year (4th of July) back in the ocean state. Once returning home, I spent three days in the city for Smart Girls Group Conference and caught up with my #dwc babes (Caroline, Frannie, Gracey). Then began my two weeks of non-stop sailing bouncing around the Northeast. I started up in Rochester for a week, then drove to Long Beach Island for four days for Nationals. Post sailing madness, I sailed some more (Around the LI Race), spent a day of the MET, and birthed an obsession to vintage shopping thanks to The Vintage Twin

We have reached August (and I'll include early September....). For the beginning of the month, I  was up in Buzzards Bay, MA for a week doing what I do best, sailing. After that, I was able to veg out for about a week- groundbreaking information right? During this "veg" time, I dove head first into creating my Youtube channel. Later on in the month, I traveled to Camden, ME with Lark Hotels. Racked up a fair share of screen time working away, celebrated three years of STSS, and  made sure to also rack up a plentiful off-screen time by hanging with the fam-bam as the Brother was home. I finished off the month with a trip to 1 World Trade Center, and locked another Vineyard Race under my belt (which included a win)
