Memorial Day weekend has come & gone which in my mind means it’s officially summer! Little man is done with preschool and I am already daydreaming about the BBQs, pool days and late nights spent with friends & family.
Over the weekend we kicked off the unofficial start to summer by heading to my parents in Ohio. We played cornhole during the day & grilled out at night, went to a local festival, ate lunch by the lake, not once but twice and just enjoyed being together in the sunshine. Oh, summertime, I love you!
It was hot & sticky out the day we went to the Strawberry Festival so I kept things casual & comfortable with my cut-off denim shorts, a cold shoulder tee & straw fedora from Target. This graphic tee was only $14.99; I’ve linked it here. I’ve also linked this medium crossbody bag from Amazon which was only $24 and comes in 3 other colors. Ever since I ditched the diaper bag I am all about practicality vs. style, and luckily this bag is both! Though this picture isn’t the best quality, it’s one of my favorites. It’s a perfect example of a day in the life… ♥
Growing up by Lake Erie was always an adventure. I spent my younger years at Cedar Point and the beach then as I got older my friends & I ventured to the islands and enjoyed summer nights on the Booze Cruise. I am so excited that I now get to make memories by the Lake with my husband & little man. Eating lunch by the water while watching the boats come in & out was such a treat over the weekend. I cannot wait to start taking little man to the beach!
Though we didn’t plan our coordinating looks, I am loving our outfits! You can’t go wrong with olive & grey.
I hope everyone had an amazing holiday weekend spent with loved ones!
