Last week, my mom and I booked a semi-spontaneous trip to go see my great-aunt Jane and her daughter (who’s really more like an aunt to me) in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Aunt Jane–who is my grandmother’s last surviving sister–is turning 90, so we’re going up for a long weekend to celebrate her birthday and spend some time at my cousin’s new-old lake house (new because she just bought it, old because it was built in the 1800s).

While of course I’m most excited to see family–two other aunts live in the same area–I’m also excited to escape the crazy humid heat we’re already experiencing down here and just have a couple of unplugged days–that hopefully come with a cool breeze. So I thought I’d put together a couple of imaginary outfits for lakeside lounging…I’d happily wear either of these. Including those Birks, which is something I never thought I’d say.

Left: Badger Balm, J.Crew top and shorts, leather Birkenstocks.

Middle: Ray-Ban sunglasses, Michael Kors watch, Ilia lipstick in Wild Child (my favorite) and Dept. of Speculation (which I just read and loved).

Right: Splendid T-shirt, Madewell shorts (sold out, but these are also cute), Joie sandals, J.Crew tote.

How about you? Any upcoming summer travel plans? I’d love to hear.
