Worn Out | Stio CFS Boardpant

From the beach to Teton peaks...

Okay, that is cheesy as hell, but seriously. Stio has made a functional multi-purpose outdoor pant that doesn't look like a "hiker." It's about time outdoor world! 

This jogger style technical pant, made of Sphero™ HO stretch poplin, looks just as great as it functions. A perfect summer weight stretch fabric breaths, wicks and drys leaving you confused as to whether you should head for the beach or start climbing tall Teton peaks. I've personally done both in these pants and have been really happy with both their function and style. 

A slim cut that is somehow also boyfriend-ish (especially while utilizing the hidden cuff bungee) is severely flattering. And don't be fooled by their style forward design, these pants move with you. The stretch is great even while rock climbing and making that tricky heel hook, trust me, just go for it - the gusseted crotch has got your back(side). 

I am so pleased to have finally found a pant for both cruising town streets and climbing in the Tetons - especially one that doesn't have awkward cargo pockets, that aren't khaki colors and that look stylish as all hell no matter the location. Cheers Stio!

A Wedding in Maine

It had been over a year and a half since I had gotten back to my roots in Maine and earlier this month I got to escape to my parents house for 4 days of family time and an exciting costal wedding (Congrats Nicole & Jay!).

Shop my wedding look:

While home I got to have tea with my grandparents, snuggle with my parents golden retriever, sift through my high school bedroom, eat as much lobster as physically possible and visit with a handful of college girlfriends.

It's such a comforting feeling to go back to your parents house and have it be just as you remembered. Cocktail hour is promptly at 5:30pm daily and bedtime is well before 10pm every night, Mom still brews Dunkin' Donuts Hazelnut (I can't say I'm a fan, but it smells like home in the morning), and the grass is mowed more meticulously than Fenway Park (nice work Dad).

Shop this look:

Oh, and my mom crushed behind the camera for me! Looking forward to heading back for my brothers wedding in September.

The Weekender

Living in a mountain town is like having a permanent weekend. With the summer daylight spanning from the early dawn to well past 9pm, desk dwellers even get a full 4 hours of daylight after 8 hours at their keyboards. People are always rushing off to play in the out of doors and jeans are considered formal wear.

I can't get enough of high waisted jean shorts this summer, breezy blouses (especially navajo print) and lace touches for slight, key word slight, femininity.
