I love a good weekend upta camp during the peak of the summer with toasty, sunny days and warm breezy nights - but I especially love trips to the lake as the summer starts to wind down and the evenings get a little cooler and the days a little more sweet. It's a reminder to savor time and an excuse to snuggle up in a cozy blanket with a glass of wine and take it all in, because as we all know....winter is coming.
We're lucky enough to have a lake house in our family, and although I do not make it up as often as I would like, I am always instantly reminded of how much I love Northern Maine each and every time we visit.
It's a place where time almost literally stands still, or at least lags about 10 years behind, and it allows me (actually forces me because there is no cell service) to disconnect and take the time to enjoy the little moments. Like lazy morning coffee with my mom, afternoon walks, kayak trips, lake floating, sunsets and sipping wine while catching up with family. You know...the good stuff :)
Plus it's excuse to be cozy and comfy - which is why I love this gingham shirt dress - it's great during the day and then in the evening wraps up nicely inside a fuzzy blanket.
Cheers to summer hopefully running right into fall.
