this year, i’ve spent a lot more time doing two things: playing games and spending time outdoors. pretty obvious as to why, but i’ve gotta say, i’ve enjoyed it immensely. i’m walking to stay healthy and trying to carve out time to play board games with the family. i thought i’d combine the two into one today and talk a bit about outdoor games and how to still and enjoy summer.
a simple summer outfit
today’s outfit is a simple one: a pair of chino shorts from J.Crew and a v-neck tee from Nordstrom. it’s no secret i love shorts, and we’ve been featuring them all summer. this pair of chino shorts is particularly comfortable—simply stated and perfect for an afternoon outdoors. i mean, can you really go wrong with the classic black/white pairing?
a good pair of espadrilles
more often than not, this summer, i find myself reaching for espadrilles. they’re one of my favorite shoes to pair with shorts, and since i’m wearing a lot of shorts this year, well, you get the idea. if you love them as much as i do, i’ve rounded up a few pairs of my favorites you can find here, here, and here. and if you don’t, i found this pair of flat mules you might like.
how to still and enjoy summer
i’m amazed at how quickly the summer is moving. totally unexpected given the current state of things. but we’re over halfway through July and heading straight into August. i’ve taken a lot of solace this year spending time outdoors. whether it be in my own backyard or at kelly’s, i find myself gardening, taking meals, or enjoying an evening cocktail outside. over the weekend of the 4th, my family and i gathered at kelly’s house for bbq and lawn games. so much fun that i wanted to share a few shots of what we got up to.
