Today’s post is just a quick little outfit of the day post, featuring this lovely Juliet Dunn dress that I’ve worn several times this summer already. The silhouette of this peachy pink summer dress (also available in white and lemon yellow) is just so feminine and timeless; I’m sure I’ll love this dress for years to…
This red maxi dress with ruffle sleeve details and smocking at the waist is not only colorful, but it’s perfect for special occasions, holiday celebrations or get-togethers with loved ones. Not only is this dress so pretty, easy to wear, and flattering, it’s also a way to look effortlessly sophisticated while staying cool in the heat.
High summer generally means I wear a lot of white pieces, and lots of breezy, gauzy linen pieces to beat the heat. It’s generally warmer here in Connecticut than it would be if we still lived in Michigan, so being cool and staying safe in the sun is more important to me than ever before. I hope Summer Essentials Volume 5 inspires you to pick out some new favorite pieces for warm weather, or to revisit some of your wardrobe favorites, and get out to enjoy the sunshine!

I haven’t posted in a few weeks, because I have had arguably the worst few weeks of my life. Now that I’ve recovered enough to type again, I wanted to update you about what’s been going on with me. Please be advised that this post has descriptions of injuries, discusses fertility issues, surgery, and sexual harassment, all of which may be upsetting to read. If these topics upset you, please skip this post, and enjoy one of my other more positive travel & lifestyle articles instead. This will be the only place I discuss this.
I take nearly all of my photographs in public places, and just like any other time we are out in public, we try always to be polite and not draw attention to ourselves more than necessary, and we always make sure not to get in other people’s way. Today, I’m answering all of your most commonly asked questions about taking photographs in public. I hope this helps you be more confident, prepared, and respectful when taking photographs in public.
The Veranda, an oceanfront restaurant with strong Nordic influences, uses wild-harvested, hyper-seasonal ingredients, a few molecular gastronomy techniques, and freshly caught seafood to create masterful expressions of flavor. By doing so, this exquisite restaurant takes diners on a tasting tour along Maine’s breathtaking rocky coastline, through beautiful meadows, and finally into Maine’s dense majestic forests. Here’s why it was one of my favorite meals I’ve ever had.

Here are some interesting things to know about lupine and the abundant meadows filled with these gorgeous flowers, along with some of my favorite photos of them from our trip.
Summer clothing styles are far and away my favorite seasonal clothing. I just love the lightweight, billowy fabrics, the intricate details, botanical patterns, crisp, cool whites, and reflective metals, and since summer is the most common time for me to enjoy these styles, aside from the occasional winter getaway, I can’t tell you how excited I was to pull some of these beauties out of my closet and enjoy the warmer weather after the summer solstice. Below is volume 4 of my summer essentials. I hope these inspire you to have a beautiful, stylish summer with a few new pieces, things you already own and love, or a mix of both.
