Modest Monday: Take Me to Puerto Rico
Happy June, friends!
With summer off to an official start, it's time to bring out the island wear. I always think of summer as simultaneously exciting + relaxing - which is why I'd love to be off on a tropical vacation to somewhere Puerto Rico, Cuba, or Costa Rica...but just dressing the part will have to do!
This is actually a crop top, given to me by one of my best friends as a belated birthday present, but I decided to wear it with a high-waisted skirt for a fun "island" look.

How was everyone's week? I wanted to get a post in before the end of May, but I ended up taking the weekend off to relax, read, and catch up with two of my closest friends who were in town for a couple days. It was so nice to grab coffee and then do some shopping while talking girl stuff like books, fiction pet peeves (I hate unrealistic sappy romances), beauty + bath/face products, babies, weight gain/loss, and everything under the sun basically. I've also been doing a lot of thinking and trying to lay down some goals for the summer, as I want it to be a productive one. I don't do well when I have too much time on my hand.
On another note, I went to the library armed with a summer reading list thanks to Pinterest + my favorite blogs. I came home with a pile of books and am steadily working through them...I'd forgotten how wonderful it is to curl up with a good book. Especially since I have a lovely, plush armchair in my room. Hit me up with book recommendations if you've read anything great lately! I'll probably do a book post once I finish my current stack. I've already read some great (and some not-so-great) ones that I'm excited to share.
Happy Monday and a happy June to you!
