As much as Dan and I love spending time together, neither one of us ever really mind an occasional weekend or two away from each other. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right? So when the opportunity for a girl’s weekend to Chatham arose, I seized the chance. It actually worked out quite well, as Dan had a guys weekend planned. I packed up my Mini with Bentley in tow and drove straight to the Cape.

And so the story goes: another chambray paired with a pair of shorts. Maybe I am becoming a bit predictable with the chambray – shorts combo, but it’s such a fool proof way to achieve an easy weekend look. The boyfriend fit of the button down plays well with the delicate eyelet shorts; striking the perfect masculine-feminine balance. A pair of summer espadrilles round out this super casual and comfy outfit. Highly suitable for my on the go weekend which included brunching with out of town relatives, checking out some property with the mister and a trip to the grocery store. And of course, a few walks with Bentley!
The hot temps we’ve been experiencing in Boston these days have made it really hard to get dressed. All I want is something that’s easy, light weight and loose fitting. Oh, and must be able to conceal any sweat spots (what, you don’t sweat?). Thankfully, this maxi dress checks all those boxes! I threw it on, stacked on a healthy handful of bracelets, layered a few strands around my neck and tossed in a pop of hot pink for good measure. I was then on my merry way for my double date with Mo (Belle of the Bean).
As you saw from my Instagram feed last weekend, my closest girlfriends whisked me away to Provincetown for my bachelorette. What I am most amazed about is that all 9 girls managed to keep mum about the destination. For weeks, they would try to throw me off with random (and inaccurate) ‘clues’ like, “Pack a going out outfit you don’t mind getting wet.” I must admit, I was getting quite frustrated since I am such a planner! The week of, a few of them even avoided talking to me for fear of inadvertently revealing the secret destination. I was pumped when my Fiance (who was part of the whole scheme) dropped my friend Steph and me off at the ferry terminal. P-Town, here we come! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend: perfect weather and plenty of pool time with some amazing friends. I am one lucky girl!
