Afternoon at Lake George

     Yesterday I spent my entire day up in Lake George with Chris. It was a beautiful day and we were looking for something different to do so we decided to take a drive up, get lunch and do some walking around. I'm surprised how crowded it was for a weekday, there were plenty of people hanging out on the beach. I wish I had brought my bathing suit so I could have joined them!
      The morning was a little cool before the sun came out in full force so I was glad that I packed my J Crew jean jacket. I really hate wearing any type of jacket/sweatshirt in the summer time because I wait all winter to be able to leave my house without bundling up, but this jacket is so light weight that its perfect for those cool mornings or late nights. I bought the jacket at the J Crew Factory store a couple years ago, it has this worn look with small rips in it that makes it look like I've had it forever. Plus the jean is super soft (I hate when jean material have that rough to the touch feel, so uncomfortable!).

      We sat in the park across the street for awhile to get out of the sun and watch all the boats go by. Being by the lake really makes me want to own a lake house and a boat when I get older. It's so relaxing and I love the breeze that comes off the water. Wouldn't it be so great to have a lake house where you could invite your family and friends up to all summer long....ugh...I need to hit the lotto ASAP.
     I went full on J Crew yesterday, not realizing it until I got home and was thinking about what to write about in my blog for today. I got this navy strapless dress at the actual J Crew, probably 5 or 6 years ago. It was a ruching on the top and elastic so you don't have to keep pulling it up all day (typically I hate strapless dresses because they always fall down and I have to wear the dreaded strapless bra ugh). I'm a huge fan of belting dresses because it gives my body some shape. You can't see in the picture above but I paired the navy dress with a brown and gold belt, that accentuated my gold chain necklace. Finally, I brought my hot pink Michael Kors bag to bring a pop of color to my outfit. I got that at the outlets a couple months ago on a super sale, they probably still have it (in other colors as well) so you should go check it out. 

    We ended our day with ice cream and mini golf (can you think of a better way to end a day haha!). I was pumped that the girl gave me a chocolate/strawberry twist instead of the boring old vanilla/chocolate! Ice cream is my guilty pleasure. AND I got two hole in ones during mini-golf, maybe I'm missing my calling.

Close up of my outfit. J Crew from head to toe except for the MK bag...whoopsies!

Whats your go-to day-date outfit?!


  1. I LOVE that MK bag! And I have about three tubs of ice cream in my freezer right now that I have been dutifully ignoring...let's see how long that lasts after that delectable picture of your cone! haha
