Missing Summer

Wow... I have so much to catch up on here! Remember summer? I was going through photos on my phone and this is one of my favorites from July 4th. This Apolis tote is sold exclusively at the Slate and Salte boutiques in Edgartown. Each bag is handcrafted by a women's co-op in Bangladesh before being finished in California. The lining is waterproof. I love this Meri Beau Coup version available online.

August was a crazy month for me. I traveled for work, fun and also moved. In the midst of traveling and settling into our new home, I landed in the hospital with Toxic Shock Syndrome that developed from an infection (most likely my cuticle that was inflamed after a manicure). I started feeling sick while we were in California for a wedding and I really don't know how I made it through the flight home. We were supposed to head straight to the Cape for a week long vacation and I was devastated that we didn't get to go. The good news is I am fully recovered. 

Anyway... here are a few snaps from the summer before I go into booties and pumpkin spice mode. 

Other moms can probably relate to this... I generally refrain from buying Lexi clothes in advance because I'm afraid they will be out of season before they fit. Well this dress was too big but I still wanted a picture of her in it, ha. We changed right after because the straps were falling off.

Every time I would have Lexi try on her Beaufort Bonnet at home she would tear it off. I even resorted to wearing it around to set the example. Thankfully she was so busy at the beach she forgot she even had it on her head. 

Sunglasses: Perverse. My Suit: Nanette Lepore (here and here). Lexi's Suit: Target (only $6 now).

This was my suit of the summer. 

Watching Dada mow the lawn. She always wants to be outside! We are right by a school and have been spending lots of time on the playground.

Thanks for stopping by!
