Last Friday my little sister had her Senior Gala. Every year my old high school throws this semi-formal dance at the local Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia for the soon-to-be graduated seniors. The night is a great way to celebrate with your classmates one last time and snap a bazillion pictures. Of course, the best part of the event is shopping for it! I helped my sister find her dress at Piper Boutique in Saratoga Springs last week (when I purchased this little number) and she looked absolutely stunning in it. Definitely one of those dresses that you see a girl wearing and you think to yourself, “Darn! That’s what I should have worn!”
(p.s. I did her hair!!)

Today I bought this little number with my sister in Saratoga for all of my various graduations and summertime parties I have coming up in the next few weeks. It was quite the financial investment in my book, but I figured cost-per-wear it was justifiable (ok, I know biggest excuse ever, but it is sooo beautiful!). What do ya think?

With exactly one week until I’m back at my favorite place on earth, I thought it might be appropriate to recap my last real summer ever (don’t worry, the freaking out has already begun). While it would be impossible for me to chronicle every up and down of the past two months, here’s a good picture (or pictures) of what Summer 2013 looked like for me:
1. Worked on Wall Street
Well, not physically on Wall Street, but close enough to see all the hustle and bustle
2. Traveled the country
Visiting both beautiful San Francisco…
… and Puerto Rico!
3. Visited my family upstate
And did quintessentially upstate things, like hitting the Saratoga Race Track.
4. Learned how to sail
I loveloveloved it. Pretty much a dream come true. Did I mention I loved it?
5. Made new friends
… and kept the old. ❤
