My Chic Week: June 30- July 6

Happy Friday! Between being on vacation and having the Fourth of July on Tuesday, this week has felt so short and now it's time for another weekend! My family and I have been at our lake house in New York since last Saturday and I'm so excited that we still have another week at the lake!


Last Friday was our last day before our trip and since I had the day off from work, it was my big day to get everything done before our trip. I had a few errands to run, did a lot of packing, scheduled my blog posts for my trip, and went to barre with my mom.

Later in the afternoon, I took a packing break to grab coffee with one of my friends. It was good to catch up and, of course, have a delicious vanilla latte.

Saturday was our big travel day and we woke up at 3:30 AM to sit in the car for fourteen hours, which honestly wasn't the most exciting day ever. I did watch a record number of episodes of Grey's Anatomy though haha!


Sunday was our first full day in NY and we went to Church in the morning before going to the grocery store and having lunch. We went out on the lake for a few hours before coming back home for dinner.

The lake has been so high this year- this is typically a beach!

Monday was another lake day and we did a lot of tubing and cruising around! A lot of our days have been generally the same, which I won't complain about because that's what you're supposed to do on vacation (in my mind at least haha!).

My mom and I took the pups for a walk Monday morning and it was great to get a little workout in!


Tuesday morning, my entire family was up earlier than usual to go run a 5k in town for the Fourth of July. I decided to run the 5k at the last second and it was definitely tough as I can't tell you the last time I ran but it was a great way to kick off our day.

After the run, we went to a local coffee shop to refuel and then went to the grocery store before heading back home. We spent the afternoon on the lake and then came back for dinner with our family friends.


I made these cookie bars that I found on Pinterest (follow me here!) for the Fourth, which were delicious!


Our family friends did a big fireworks show at their house, which was so much fun to see. My family has the worst luck when it comes to seeing fireworks on the Fourth so I'm glad we got to see some good ones this year!



After a busy day on Tuesday, we decided to have Wednesday as a relaxing day. My parents and I went into town to go to Walmart (#glamorous) and then we pretty much did nothing all day, which was amazing!

Thursday morning, I slept in (again!) and enjoyed a relaxed morning before heading out on the lake in the afternoon. We went to one of our favorite restaurants in town that night for dinner and then grabbed ice cream afterwards, which I will never turn down haha!



On my Radar:

1. I ordered my bedding for my dorm this week and I'm so excited for it to come! I decided to add a monogram by taking it to a local boutique but I can't wait to see how it turns out!

2. Obsessed with this top from J. Crew Factory!

3. Regardless of where you are as a blogger, Brighton's tips for managing blog content is so helpful!

4. Lilly Pulitzer has new arrivals and, of course, they're gorgeous! My favorites are this shift dressthese pantsthese shorts, this dress, and this skort

5. Loved reading about Shannon's June Favorites- I may need to purchase the phone sanitizer!
