I’ve missed you!!! Seriously, though I feel like it has been so long! I returned home two days ago after being away for the last few weeks in Maine. I had every intention to blog during my time traveling but God had other plans for me, ha! Honestly, there was very little WiFi in Maine and my phone basically only worked when I was at coffee shops here and there and at this library in the center of the tiny town we stayed in. After a few days of feeling really guilty about stepping away from blogging (just being honest here) I decided to give in and actually relax without having my computer attached to my body at all times. Don’t get me wrong, I still visited that library every single day (or a coffee shop when we were in bigger towns) to post to social media BUT did really try to step away. Those of you who work via your laptop or phone know how hard it is to fully step away, haha.
We started the trip in Brooklin, Maine which is a tiny and adorable town that has a population of 824. My favorite thing about going to Maine every summer is that the lifestyle there is SO much slower than in California. Even the driving is less stressful!!! We spent 7 days at a cottage we rented in Brooklin and then made our way to Damariscotta (my favorite town in Maine), followed by Phippsburg, where ALL the family got together for a big ol’ family reunion. Our trips to Maine in the summers are the times where my whole family slows down and spends time together. This year was extra special because Dylan was able to get the time off work to come with! It was a blessing to spend that time sailing, paddle boarding, swimming, drinking wine at 4pm (lol), reading, eating lobster, & all the other things you do on vacation. He was also able to spend some time in one of my absolute favorite places: Damariscotta, Maine. Damariscotta is the most adorable town I have ever been to. We grew up spending our summers there with my Grandmother so it holds a very special place in my heart. Now that I’m older, I also so appreciate the absolutely stunning homes and architecture of the town. It is straight out of a Nicholas Sparks movie and gives me all the feels every single time I visit.
At the end of the three weeks of travel, I stopped in Michigan for a bachelorette weekend that I had been planning for the last few months!! I’m going to put together a FULL blog post soon on the planning that went into the bachelorette in the hopes that it can be helpful to any of you that might be planning a bachelorette party in the near future!
Below are the outfits I’m wearing in the photos! You can also find links to my looks under each photo. Please let me know if you have any questions about sizing! Lots of my swimsuits are under $20, with dresses under $40 and $50. 🙂 I loved styling these summer dresses and rompers as well as keeping it casual with swimsuits and jean-shorts.
