It's the weekend! I'm not brave enough to take on the Memorial Day traffic, so we're staying in town, but I am going to do a little pre-birthday celebrating :-)  What do you all have tap this weekend?

My mom got this dress for me when we took a sailing trip around the Windward Islands. I get excited about wearing this dress when the weather gets warmer, because the tropical print just screams "summer activities."

Another summer staple - I got this necklace in a boutique on Nantucket a few years ago. I like that it's kind of a statement necklace, but not too big and little bit rustic.

  6. my memorial weekend plans include working saturday, sunday and monday to make up for the ridiculous amount of money i spent today.

    the tropical print is brilliant - kinda like an aesthetically pleasing, cool version of a hawaiian shirt.
