End of Summer Coffee Chat


Summer is over, and I am SAD.

On the train back to real life tonight, Meg was talking about how she was excited for fall, and that it was her favorite season. I am blonde, and I really like Lilly Pulitzer, so I definitely peak in summer.

If we were having coffee date right now, I’d tell you:

Windmill Hamptons

I’m really excited and really nervous about the Chicago Marathon. Thankfully this isn’t my first rodeo, so I know I will be able to finish, but I also know that with this compressed training schedule, it won’t be quite as enjoyable (“enjoyable”) as past marathons have been for me. But I trust Jess‘s coaching guidance implicitly, and know that I will be as prepared as I possibly can…

This weekend, I did my 12 miles out in the Hamptons. Our share is in Amagansett, so I ran to East Hampton and back. We’d gone out the night before, so I was proud of myself for getting it in and not pushing it back to early this week instead.

I would also tell you that I am fully obsessed with flash tattoos and now think no beach weekend is complete without them, and yes I know I am the most basic bitch ever, thank you for asking.

I would tell you that I got a ride out there, but am thrilled that I took the train back and didn’t have to deal with traffic. Dinner at Sotto Sopra with half-priced wine and pizza was a fabulous way to wrap up the day/weekend/summer.

I would tell you that I’m doing a triathlon this weekend with my bosslady/favorite person Jordan, and I am so excited for her to do her first tri.

I would tell you that after a summer of fun and indulgence, I am so ready to buckle down and eat better this fall. Ashley had a great recent post about saying no to overcommitting and yes to yourself sometimes, and I’m going to try to be really cognizant of that this fall.

I would tell you that even though I spent too much money this weekend, I am currently lusting over, oh, EVERYTHING on sale at J. Crew Factory right now (and 50% off!!!)

    I’m with you on the buckling down now that summer is officially over. And sure flash tattoos are awesome and miiiight make you seem basic, but I think that get cancelled out when drinking White Girl Rose which is the best name I have ever heard for wine. Ever.

    My weekend was all about finding balance. I skipped a bachelorette party, but still did a two beer lunch with a different friend. I’ve got a new job and slept good the first week or so, but now I’m having goofy dreams. Fall has always been my favorite, so I can’t wait for all the layers and fun activities!

    Yes to tent dress on Mondays! Haha. Every week starts off with the thought: what is one outfit I can wear that is only one piece and is not tight? Comfy dresses make adjusting to the work week easier.

    I’m so excited for the Chicago Marathon. Last year I PR’d there with a 3:45 and I hope to run a little faster this year. Inching my way to a BQ. You should do a meet-up in Chicago!
