Summer seems to be in full swing, and summer in New England is probably tied with autumn as my favorite season. This past weekend, A took me to this area of the East Side of Providence (see my last post here) filled with bright flowers and greenery, before dinner at one of our favorite Indian restaurants.
All of the beautiful houses had that New England charm, and the residents were out sitting on their balconies and yards. We spotted a stone cottage where a wedding reception was taking place - there was an arch decorated with twigs and flowers that led to a garden set up with round tables and white tablecloths.
We also spotted a 'Little Free Library', which is charming in and of itself!
This white eyelet dress is perfect for enjoying warm weather as the fabric is light and airy. It's the second of the two dresses I picked up from Goodnight Macaroon (see the first here). I love the neckline and scallop details. These shoes are also some of the comfiest I own (also featured here).
School's out for the summer in just two weeks - I'm eager to get started on the list of goals and plans I have saved on my phone!
My third to last course of my Master's program starts next Tuesday. I took a break from my Master's this year and am excited to get back on that.
A's birthday is coming up and I bought us tickets to a Cubs game at Citi Field. I've never seen the Cubs live, so I'm as excited as he is (to see my boo Kris Bryant and my main boo Joe Maddon). It'll also be exciting to be back in NYC.
We did a lot of domestic and international travel last summer, so we plan to explore New England this summer, namely the sunflowers, daffodils, and roses in Connecticut, the lakes and mountains in New Hampshire, and Massachusetts and Maine. There are also some gardens, mansions, and islands I'd like to explore in Rhode Island. So much to see! Hoping to do a bit of biking in between.
My parents are planning to come up in late July/early August. This will be their first visit and I'm most excited to show them the life I've built here these past four (!) years.
What are your plans for the summer? x
