This summer has been one for the books in terms of sheer business. Between my new work schedule and jam-packed weekends, it's been hard to take a break or even catch a breath, it feels like we're always moving. We've had obligations every weekend since late May, and this past weekend was no different, except our obligation was to witness the marriage of Chris's best friend in Maine. Soooo... "obligation" isn't quite the right word for it... "joy", "excitement", you get the gist. We were more than thrilled to have an excuse to travel home, if only for a short amount of time. Best Man that he was, Chris flew up before me for the bachelor party and I was to follow with the car. Except the car wasn't having any of it.

But even a busted transmission line couldn't keep me away, and after an Uber ride, two excruciatingly long and uncomfortable bus rides, a lift from my father-in-law to New Hampshire, and a borrowed car from my father to drive to Maine, I was there. Tired, but there.

The opportunities to dress up these days are pretty few and far between for Chris and I, so any chance we get, we take. I bought this dress shortly before leaving Free People expressly for this particular wedding, and it's been burning a hole in my proverbial pocket ever since. It's light, airy, and perfect for the blazing hot days we've been having, but easily transitioned to fall layered under a denim or leather jacket (I'm counting down the days until leather jacket weather), but even then, I was tempted to jump in the water at Two Lights, where the ceremony took place.

PS - Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my recent post about my new job. I truly appreciate your words of encouragement -- and luggage recommendations! xo
