Lake Front Love

Thursday, June 2, 2011


Yesterday was a rough one. Nothing terrible happened, just one of those days that felt off. Traffic has been a disaster now that summer construction is in full swing, my calendar is overwhelming and I feel like there's never enough time. I came in frustrated last night so hubby suggested a walk. As much as I complain about winter, commutes and our small apartment, having this view steps from our home makes it all worth it - the sunset, crashing waves and fresh air instantly improve my mood. And a fun printed dress never hurts either. (I just adore exposed zippers.) More nightly walks added to the agenda in 3, 2, 1...





Dress - Sears  /  Shoes - Forever 21  /  Watch - DKNY  /  Earrings - K.Amato

How do you guys stay sane during busy times? I would love your tips!

  6. Britt - I know what you mean, I always seem to gravitate towards those same combos!

    Jamie - I actually purchased around the holidays last year but it's still available online. Seriously girl, it's $14.99 - that's like 2 lunches :)

  7. Hubby had a fantastic idea. Fresh air, and views of water, and most importantly, hand in hand with your sweet love make for a much better day.

  9. I also go for a walk or just to sit by the waterfront. Though mine is just a dirty old river, nothing like that gorgeous view! Now THAT is something to calm anyone's mind! ;)

  20. Totally agree on exposed zippers. Such a fun detail! I think walks can be great to unwind-also love some dog snuggles, a hot bath, a good book, or a glass of wine with my girlfriends.
