Hello, Happy Monday. I hope you all enjoyed the lovely holiday weekend, I know I did. Having a summer vacation the last two weeks has been wonderful, even if my primary occupation was "dog butler". We went to the beach, at barbecued crab legs, took a day trip out east... I'm so sad to see it come to a close, but I will get to relive it just a little bit through the pictures in this post. Last Wednesday we took a ride out to the North Fork to visit a few wineries and have lunch in Greenport. One of the tall ships was in while we were there so we walked around and admired all of the intricate carvings from the dock. 

I ordered this dress online what now seems like a very long time ago and debated returning it for nearly as long. It runs a bit big and while I have been exercising, trying to lose that last bit of winter weight, I certainly haven't shrunk down to nothing like the size of this dress would indicate. You have been warned. I decided to belt it in an attempt to reel it in but the loose bits still bunched over the sides when I gave up on constantly pulling it down. By the time we reached Kontakosta, our last stop of the trip, I decided to ditch the belt and wedges and walked out to the bluffs to have a glass of wine as the sun began to set.

  2. SO in love with this dress. I love it belted. You have the tiniest waist!

    I'm so jealous of your two week break from real life. Not that real life isn't great, but how amazing is vacation!?
