Is there anything better than spending a day at the pool, reading? Maybe a day at the beach… I am more of a beach girl, but there’s something nice about having everything you need nearby (and when I say “everything,” what I really mean is cute waiters with frosty drinks). Lydia and I spent a relaxing afternoon by the pool at our hotel last Tuesday afternoon and it was everything. She wandered off to take some photos and I started to read my book but fell asleep in minutes.
Right now, I’m reading a book called Sunday’s on the Phone to Mondays. The author, Christine Reilly, actually reads here (so cool!) and reached out to send me a copy. I’m about halfway through. It’s the story of a young couple who meets in New York in the early eighties and follows them (+ their three daughters) as they raise a family up through modern day. It’s really beautifully written – I’m really enjoying it!
Also, I got quite a few questions on social media about how J.Crew’s swim sizing runs. I find that J.Crew’s swim is probably the most true-to-size of any swimwear brand I’ve shopped. I am always a size medium. Always. In their clothing I am sometimes a small, sometimes a medium.. in their dresses I am either a 4 or 6… but their swimwear (at least for me!) is always consistent! Just wanted to mention that here.
