We finally got away for a week at the lake, and it was just what the doctor ordered. We hadn’t taken a vacation since Covid, and we really needed it. I was really stressed about traveling, so we decided to just head to the lake for the weekend. I felt safer driving, we didn’t need to worry about hotels, or eating out, so we could just relax. James had the best time and while the kids didn’t give me much sleep, it was nice to check out for a few days. Funnily enough, I found that I actually missed packing and planning summer vacation outfits.
I threw in some dresses and other cute summer outfits in case I felt like wearing something other than our usual summer vacation outfits — i.e., bathing suits and shorts. While we spent most of the days in our swimsuits or workout clothes, it was fun to get everyone a little dressed up at night, even if we were just going down to the dock for cocktails or bbq-ing. I don’t know, but sometimes it makes everything feel more festive.
Here’s what I wore for our summer vacation at the lake.
