Happy Monday! I’m currently writing this post from my comfy couch in Virginia Beach — however if you’ve been following my Instagram then you probably know Michael and I just got back from a weekend at the lake. We were visiting his family in Kentucky this past week when a family friend graciously offered to host us on her house boat. So we packed up a few things and drove over to the lake — the house boat was about two hours away at Green River Lake.
I actually just bought this dress and I was sort of hesitant to bring it because it’s so pretty and I didn’t want it to get dirty. I’m so glad I did though — for the longest time I would hoard and protect my prettiest dresses and only wear them for super special occasions (easter sunday, weddings…). At the end of the year I’d realize I’d only worn those special pieces 3 or 4 times! So stupid. I wore this dress for morning coffee (as seen here) and in the afternoon after we were done swimming. At one point we had to get the houseboat off the dock and I was pulling all these giant ropes out of the water covered in lake water and it was splashing all over my dress…I had no idea what I was doing with all the ropes but at least I looked good — and the dirt will wash off!
I hope you all had a great weekend and if you’re shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I want to know what you got! The giveaway I’m hosting for a Nordstrom giftcard is still going on, just scroll to the end to enter!
P.S. I’m superrrr tan here and part of it’s from the sun (although I ALWAYS wear sunscreen) but it’s also from my fake tan. I always use THIS self tanner. It looks so good even on very fair skin!
