Labor Day Recap

I can't believe it's already September! It seems like just the other day I was getting ready to walk across the stage for graduation. This summer has absolutely flown by, especially the last few weeks due to how busy I've been. My Labor Day Weekend was no exception- but not because of whirlwind Labor Day sales shopping sprees. I know. Someone probably should have checked my temperature.

I worked Saturday and Sunday at J. Crew, then hightailed it up to Maine straight from the end of my shift at 5. (After typing that, I realize I have to retract my previous statement... I did purchase a black excursion vest on Saturday, which is currently 25% off in stores AND is combinable with the 15% student/teacher discount! So if you wanted to get a J. Crew vest, now's a good time. Look out for a future post on how to style that vest and the herringbone version!)

On Corbin- Shirt: Banana Republic (similar) | Belt: local Boothbay boutique (similar) | Pants: Vineyard Vines
On me- Dress: Lilly Pulitzer (similar) | Pearls: my mom's... shhhhh, she doesn't know I have them ;)

 I got to Boothbay Harbor just in time to meet my boyfriend Corbin and his parents for dinner. I wore one of my Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale purchases, the Daylin Dress in Bright Navy Bubbly. Although it was a dress I didn't go into the sale specifically looking for, I'm so glad I decided to get it! The octopus print was fitting for the night, as I ventured out of my comfort zone and tried new sushi and wood fired oysters (which, as it turns out, I like a whole lot better than raw ones!). 

Despite a muggy thunderstorm the night before, Labor Day dawned sunny and beautiful.

How cute are these nautical pillows?

On Corbin- Tshirt: Polo (similar) | Shorts: J. Crew Factory | Bracelet: KJP
On me- Jeans: J. Crew (the most comfortable jeans ever) | Sandals: Jack Rogers

It was a nautical motif kinda day.

And of course, what weekend is complete without an adorable pup? This is Corbin's border collie, Maggie, aka the happiest dog on the earth.

How did you spend your Labor Day Weekend? And if you partook in the sales, I'd love to know what you got! :)
