Summertime Sadness

This summer has gone by incredibly fast and I although I love fall, I got that summertime sadness (Lana Del Ray put it perfectly!). Before I start my fall wish-lists such as visiting wineries, apple picking, and pumpkin everything (sorry, I’m just not ready yet), I have a few more summer bucket list items.  Do you have a summer wish-list left?

  • Girl’s beach trip ( and I mean ONLY girls!)
  • Take Zoey (my pup) to the beach.. my little baby has never been!
  • Make homemade popsicles with this mouth-watering recipe I found on Pinterest here.
  • Go to a Yankees game!

Oh, and the drink was an island Martini- a delicious concoction they were serving at the bar!}

Sexy in Stripes

Stripes are kind of like the LBD, they will never go out of style and will always be an old faithful pattern to turn to.  Lately stripes have been everywhere, from horizontal, vertical, diagonal, skinny, thick, and everything in-between!
