Once my birthday has passed, I’m always acutely aware of how few summer days are actually left. After undergoing renovations for the entirety of June & July (talk about poor planning!) the pool in our complex has finally re-opened and I’ve been making up for lost time ever since.
Growing up, we always had a mishmash of LL Bean boat & totes around the house, but until I picked up this one at the beginning of the season I had forgotten how perfect they really are. Originally I planned to use it for trips to the Design Center, but as un-chic as this might make me, I’ve found myself reaching for it daily. Inexpensive and indestructible–what more can you ask for?
Pool time is also when I tackle the stack of magazines I’ve inevitably let litter every surface of our apartment. I think the cover of the summer issue of Conde Nast Traveler is especially chic (it’s since made its way to my inspiration board) and I was excited to see a great little write up about the Halcyon House which I’ve posted about.
This week I’m excited to be finalizing a few presentations and photographing a beautiful blue and white dining room I can’t wait to share with you! Here’s to soaking up every last bit of summer we have left!
