I'm not super big into holidays. I can deal with Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter, mainly because I grew up celebrating them. When it comes to Valentines Day, July 4th, National Chocolate Day...I don't have any interest in cooking and putting on a celebration for nothing.
This year, I decided to get in the spirit since my best friends love the holiday. I booked us a room at the Inn at Mystic, located about 40 minutes from where I'm originally from in CT. I've featured the Inn at Mystic on my blog before, but the last time I stayed there was over a year ago and it was winter. They have a fabulous restaurant and pool, so booking a room at the property in the summer is much more ideal.
I went shopping in Boston on Sunday at Express with a gift card they sent me to buy some new items for summer, and I left knowing Express had become my new favorite store within a matter of minutes. They're having a huge sale right now, but of course, I ended up picking everything that wasn't on sale (their summer collection is SO CUTE) so I would've left with 3x the amount of clothing if I wanted to be reasonable and buy from the sale. Oh well. I've never worn a bodysuit before, but the minute I picked up this sexy lace piece above, I knew I had to have it. The concept of bodysuits is kind of odd to me, because they're like bathing suits but actual clothing. I think of a bodysuit as something more suited for a music festival. This summer season, girls have been wearing them with everything, and not just at music festivals. I seriously hope bodysuits stay in style for more than just the summer!
Hope you had a lovely 4th- I'm headed to DC tomorrow for a quick trip to appear on Great Day Washington Thursday morning. I hope you're tuning in!
