Hi friends! I’m back online after a weekend camping with no service! Often times being without internet stresses me out, but it was nice to just detach for a while. I hadn’t been camping in so long, and had so much fun out on the lake drinking loads of campfire coffee! When I found out I was going on this trip, I knew I’d need a couple of wardrobe additions. I didn’t have any sort of bathing suit, so I decided to make one. I ended up with this little black and white gingham one piece which I just love! It’s simple, but with a retro feel. I also made these linen shorts from a 1950s pattern to wear as a coverup, and I love how they turned out. The high waist is perfect, and they make me feel like Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina. 🙂 I brought along my denim jacket since it had been rainy, and added my new Anthropologie sunglasses and old black sandals to finish off this comfy camping look. My gold Madewell necklace pretty much never leaves my neck, so it went to the lake too!

Have any of you been camping this summer? What are some of your favorite summer activities? I’d love to hear!
