… and my striped shirt, again.
By now you know my love for this striped shirt runs deep. I think it’s the ~perfect~ shirt and I wear it at least once a week. If I’m not actually traveling in it, it’s in my suitcase. It is a staple in my closet and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I wore it on Nantucket for a trip to Cru (best lobster roll ever) and a sail around the Harbor.
Anyway, since you know how much I love the shirt, I thought I’d share these photos and also some super random things I’ve been into lately (at the end of the post!).
Here are some random things I’ve been into lately:
Solitaire // This is such a grandma thing, but I downloaded solitaire on my phone and I’ve been playing it a lot. I’m not even a “phone game” kind of girl and somehow I’m sucked into this. Because the games are fast, I can just pick it up when I have a few minutes of downtime and walk away when I need to snap back into action. It’s been a relaxing way to keep the brain sharp while still “disconnecting” for a few moments. I used to play solitaire all the time on our family PC… it brings back some fun memories weirdly too.
The Handmaid’s Tale // Wow, wow this show. I know I’m super late to the game, but wow. I have tried watching this THREE times and literally could not get through the first episode. It made me sick to my stomach every time I tried. My boyfriend’s sisters and mom all convinced me to give it another shot and I sat down and forced myself to finish the first episode… and then I was hooked. Who else is watching?! I’m almost done with the first season. It’s going to take me a while to get caught up though because I can only watch in spurts. It’s so heavy and depressing (but good!!! so well done) that I have to switch it over to something light and easy after.
Catan // Again, we’re late to the party on this. It’s such a fun game though. Catan seems super, super complicated. I mean, opening up a fifteen-page instruction manual (errr, book) is a little intimidating. I learned how to play by just playing with friends who already knew it. At first it was frustrating, but twenty minutes in and I was HOOKED. Highly recommend getting into it if you’re not already. (PS You can order custom Catan games on Etsy and they’re beautiful… we ordered this for a wedding gift and it’s gorgeous.)
Lululemon // I used to buy super cheap workout gear. Partly because I just did yoga and didn’t want to invest in basically a “second” wardrobe. But let me tell you, I’m officially converted for Lulu. It’s worth the money and once you know your favorite styles and sizes, shopping is crazy easy. I pop into the store and head straight to the sale rack to see if my favorite top is available. I wear these shorts and love their sports bras.
My Subaru // Almost all of my summer travel has been by car. So many miles and hours of driving. It’s been great though. Even with traffic, I love driving in my car to get somewhere because a) I can pack everything I need without worrying about specific bags/sizes and b) I like being in control of when we go/leave. I have a Forester and literally couldn’t recommend Subaru enough. They just came out with a three-row SUV called the Ascent and I kind of love it. I don’t have a need for a third row… and my parking spot is just barely big enough for my Forester so I’ve been trying to get all my friends and family to convert and get one!
