IN LOVE: TAKE IT EASY

summertime The past few weeks have been SO busy. Sometimes amazing / good busy, like with Eat Drink Create... and sometimes hectic / stressful busy, like when our landlord told us they're selling our place so we have to move by August 31st. Sighhh.

BUT in between the busy, summer sneaks in. You know. Those incredible moments of peace and happiness that only come around this time of year. Sitting outside for brunch, relaxing on the front steps with lemonade, getting free soft serve ice cream just cuz! Okay, it was complimentary with our purchase, but still! No one gives out free ice cream during any other season.

Lately, my wardrobe definitely reflects these laid-back summer moments... flowy skirts, loose tops, gladiator sandals (my FAVE). Ahh yeeah. Maybe some of this laidback-ness will spill over into my house hunting? You never know...

IN LOVE: CASUAL DATE NIGHT

what to wear to a picnic date It's a special date night edition of In Love this week! This summer I'm really making an effort to get outside. After a long work week, it's so tempting to just crank up the AC and binge-watch Netflix with Kevin. But nay. Not this summer. I want to take advantage of these summer days and nights. Hang out by the pool, grill on the patio, do a little hiking...

One of my favorite date ideas is to take a picnic to the park right by our house. It's the perfect picnic spot, surrounded by trees and so peaceful. The other night we did just that. We packed up a few sandwiches, strawberries, popcorn, and some vintage-y looking Pepsis that I'm obsessed with. So much fun! I highly recommend a picnic date...

To be honest, I'm not a big shorts and sandals kind of girl. Those bright skinnies and oxfords are my go-to combination this summer. Add a cute patterned top? Good to go, homegirl.

See more photos from our picnic date over on instagram!
