I <3 Flamingos.

A few things: Did you read that piece on The Cut, titled “How to Get Your Body Ready for Caftan Season?” You should. It had me in stitches. Also, it is a pretty good description of what Hallie, Jess, and I got up to this weekend at Hilton Head. All of the foods. And zero regrets. But guys. A good coverup is important…

It was one of those gross days where it wasn’t quite raining, but the air was incredibly heavy and we got misted on. Gross.
