Weekend Recap: Long Island

The hubs and I are back from a great weekend in Long Island. I was a little nervous because I woke up Thursday morning with a horrible sore throat and thought for sure I had caught what the hubs had Easter weekend. Luckily I was feeling much better once we got to Long Island (until yesterday when my voice decided to leave me!).

Some of you may be wondering why we were in Long Island. Last year we met this awesome couple in Costa Rica who were celebrating their engagement. We all joked we would crash their wedding. All year we kept in touch and then a wedding invitation arrived! We knew we had to go and make a fun weekend of it and we are so glad we did. The wedding was beautiful and omg there was so much food. I think I gained 10 pounds in one night haha

The bride and groom set aside Saturday night to spend with us. They took us to a restaurant they had been wanting to try and let me tell you, if you ever get to the area this is a must go. Everything was delicious and the customer service was amazing. It’s called Old Fields of Port Jefferson. We told the waiter they were newlyweds and we were from Texas. To celebrate, the manager (I believe he was the manager) brought us a dessert sampler platter AND mini ice cream soda floats. I would go back just for desserts lol Everything we ate was delicious though.

As far as being tourists, since the weekend was scheduled around the wedding, the hubs and I only drove to Montauk Point Lighthouse. It is the oldest lighthouse in New York and was commissioned by George Washington. The lighthouse was about an hour and a half from where we stayed in Riverhead. The weather wasn’t the best, but we climbed to the top of the lighthouse anyway. A lighthouse staff member told us that before electricity was installed in 1940, the lighthouse keeper would make the climb every 3 hours to hand crank an 8lb weight that made the light spin. Every 3 hours! That would interrupt my sleep!

On our drive back to Riverhead we drove through the Hamptons. Didn’t spot anyone famous 🙁 Their main street areas are filled with cute restaurants and boutiques. If the weather had been better I would have asked the hubs to make a few stops.

The extended weekend was great and unlike our other vacations this year was relaxing. I’m off work sick today. The weekend stole my voice so I write this from my comfy couch while downing lots of liquids. I hope you had a good weekend too! Until next post…xoxo Becca

Make ’em Blush

Make 'em BlushLace Fit and Flare Dress | Ruffled High Low Top | Baublebar Drop Earrings

Pointy Toe Pump | Slim Ankle Pants

One Shoulder Peplum Top | Watch | Shoulder Bag | Scalloped Flats

Pale pink or blush, the ultimate spring color! It’s fresh and soft and the perfect feminine shade. I suggest adding it to your closet now! I’ve linked some items that caught my attention above. There’s a little bit of everything; tops, dresses, jewelry, shoes.

Lace and ruffles galore 🙂 Little details added to a basic color give it movement and texture. Pair it with light neutral shades and you are all set for spring. Don’t shy away from this color for work either, a blush blazer or pumps can give an outfit a ladylike feel. I don’t suggest it for a “power suit,” but any other time is great.

Don’t forget, this shade looks good on many skin tones! This pale girl is appreciative of that because there are some colors I must stay away from. Blush adds a rosy color to my skin.

Well, the hubs and I are off on another trip. Quick weekend trip to Long Island for some friends’ wedding. We are looking forward to seeing them, but also exploring the area. If you have any suggestions for places to visit or restaurants to eat at, leave it in the comments below.

Until next post…xoxo Becca
