His & Hers beach weekend

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, and while in many places summer weather started months ago, here in Connecticut, it's almost like a switch was flipped on Wednesday and suddenly it's summer, with temperatures in the high 80's. The warm weather looks like it's going to be sticking around too, and while I don't have any official plans for my Memorial Day weekend yet, I'd love it if I could get to the beach.

While I'd love to add some new swimwear to my wardrobe, I certainly don't need a new suit (plus I'm still trying to not shop). Sean on the other hand desperately needs to visit the mens swimwear section at House of Fraser and get a new pair of trunks for the summer so there won't be another repeat of last year when I planned a beach day for us and he wore shorts, a button down shirt, and boat shoes - and I dragged him into the water anyway.

Quite similar

I think I may need to think a little more creatively about how I style this printed blazer the next time I wear it, as I essentially duplicated the first look I wore. Aside from the difference in seasons, footwear, and a more tailored pant, I didn't stray much from the original format.

A part of me does think, if it's not broken - nothing is more classic than black and white, plus it's an easy look that is comfortable for work. I do know one thing - I need to be wearing this blazer more.

Starting the countdown

Vacation. Just the word on my lips brings forth a smile. I have just one week left to prepare for my trip to California - itineraries and outfits to plan, lists of what I'll need to bring, lists of restaurants I want to try, and the gravity of having just one week left to do it is setting off a bit of a panic.

Not to mention getting blog posts scheduled here so things wont stay quite, but I wont have to worry about blogging while I'm away.

If anyone has any 'must do' suggestions for San Francisco, Big Sur, Los Angeles, or San Diego, do let me know, and if you happen to live in any of those places and might be able to meet up with me, then definitely send me a message!
