Wednesday: Lake Living

lands end knit dress

Dress: Lands' End (on sale!)
Earrings: Purchased at a festival a few years ago (similar)

Vacation at my cousin's house on the lake has been fantastic, and I must say fashion is not at the forefront of my mind. In such a community, shorts and sandals are the uniform. Jewelry and makeup are minimal since the days are being spent outside in the sun (of course always covered with sunscreen!). This evening my cousins had some neighbors over for dinner and then we went for a sunset cruise on the boat. I wore this knit dress from Lands' End that has already become a favorite this summer – I can toss it in the washer and dryer and I love that it has pockets (and also easily covers bra straps). Bare feet is how I have gone most of the week, though I did throw on a pair of Reef “Sandy” flops for the boat ride.

Heading home tomorrow which is bittersweet. We have had a blast and it has been so wonderful to spend time with my family, but I do miss my home, the dogs, and the community.

     I had a great time down there, didn’t have any time for shopping but I know I will be back many more times.  My relatives don’t plan on moving, and I do plan on seeing them on a regular basis! 🙂

    Allie, I looked at your Instagram pics and you were in my backyard!  I’ve visited that zoo a million times as my son loves it, we go about once a month!  Maybe I’m wrong but I hope you had a wonderful visit! You didn’t mention shopping but I do hope if you visit our lovely palmetto state again (if I’m right) you venture downtown cola for some neat & unique shops plus a short trip to our holy city on Kings St.  Love the pics!

    One last thing..

    Um, Andy?

    You’re looking a bit, hmm, how to say it-*smaller* down there, old chap. Sort of limp, and a bit saggy.
    Just sayin’

    I love family time too. It’s hard to go back to the routine 🙂 Love that dress – easy care is the best in the summertime.

    What a fabulous summer dress, and you look great! Love bare feet – we should all do that more often  : >

    Love the color of that dress!  Sounds like you had a great time!

    Lands End has some great dresses lately.  I was fortunate enough to find a brand new with tags Navy LE dress at the thrift store for $4.00!

    Missed your posts!

    I love that dress, and I have to say I giggled that your drop down banner (don’t know the technically term for these blog her ad thingies) was Michelob Ultra Light Cider- looked perfect with that dress!

    Can I just say you look amazing in green? Looking at this outfit, I don’t think you wear the color enough! 🙂

    Hooray! You’ve made my day. I have this dress in Wild Cherry and love it so much I went back to get another color…but it had disappeared from their site and I was very sad.  Glad to see it’s back. Now my dilemma is Palm Pink, Asparagus, or both???
