Is it just me, or did I just finish posting about our epic road trip to Kentucky? It’s hard to believe that I’m already back here again with more vacation outfits! It’s crazy to me how quickly the summer has been flying by. It’s almost the end of July and I still haven’t found a perfect pair of shorts. I might just have to give up on that search because this week I’ve been getting emails about “pre-fall” collections. Is it really time to be thinking about fall already?
Speaking of fall – the weather we experienced in upstate New York certainly felt like fall to us! On the particular day that I wore this outfit, it was around 70 degrees. Most of the other days were warmer, but this day was cloudy and rainy, which kept the weather nice and cool. I kept telling George it was “winter,” while my native New-Yorker stepdad had a good laugh at me! I was probably the only one in Syracuse wearing a jacket, but I didn’t care!
I’m sure a lot of you are wondering why we visited upstate New York in the first place. We also went to Cleveland, which probably made things even more confusing if y’all were following my trip on Snapchat. The simple answer is that my stepsister Laura had a wedding in Buffalo, which is why my mom and stepdad were on this trip with us. It was a beautiful and fun wedding, but I’ll share more on that in an outfit post next week. George’s mom is also from upstate New York, so we were excited to find out the wedding was in Buffalo so that we could visit his mom’s side of the family while we were in the area. A few months before our trip, we got a letter in the mail from George’s family saying that they were holding a family reunion the weekend before Laura’s wedding. His family has been holding this reunion for 90-something years and he had never been to one before, so we knew we had to go! Needless to say, I met a LOT of new faces on this trip. We drove all over upstate, both to visit family and friends and play tourist. At the end of the trip, I felt like we had been gone forever! We kept up with a very busy schedule but it was all such a blast. I’m hoping that we’ll get to visit again soon.
I’ll be posting more outfits from our trip next week along with some details of all the cool places we visited. Stay tuned!
