How to Make Summer Last

Dress: Beach Lunch Lounge (also feat. this one on Instagram. Finally available online) Sandals: Carrie Forbes (similar)  Earrings: Nicola Bathie c/o 

Once August 1st arrives and the fall promotion emails start flooding my inbox, I'm always reminded of all the things I intended to do at the start of summer and never got around to -- beach days, grilling recipes to try, an afternoon reading on my hammock, more dinners on the dock, blueberry picking, putting our boat in the water (I think at this point it might be more trouble than it's worth). The season goes by so fast and I fully intend to make the most of August, which means more nights like the one featured in this post. We didn't have time to cook, but pizza is always a simple and delicious solution.  I can' t think of a better place to enjoy it than on the dock while watching the sunset. I want to spend as much time outdoors as I possibly can before the weather turns cold. What is on your August bucket list? 

This table comes in a bag and is perfect for not just my dock, but the beach, a grassy field, pretty much any place that suits you to have a picnic. Easy to assemble, and pack up. Here are my essentials for a no fuss dock dinner below (not included fresh flowers): 


  1. Wow your photos are amazing! The beach lounge looks so beautiful <3

  2. I definitely need to read outside more often (for fun) before school starts up, and I'm reading what I'm teaching my kiddos!

  3. Beautiful!

  4. What a perfect place to enjoy a nice dinner! I bet the weather is also gorgeous up by you!

    My August goals are to hopefully find my first home with my husband. We've been hunting for the past few months and I'm eager to find "the one!"
