Is summer here yet?

Here in southern NY, we've been dealing with this for the past few months:
My Dad the day after Christmas- all this from one storm!

While my friends who ski/snowboard have been loving the unusually snowy weather, those of us who need sunshine, picnics and pretty dresses have been going nuts! I know some of you bloggers and readers are lucky enough to be able to escape to warmer places this spring break, but some of us *ahem* will be stuck in the dreariness (at least it's raining today and not snowing!). So I decided I would share some pictures from warmer, more pleasant times to remind us that sunnier days are ahead!

Mmmm, beach. This is me roasting in the Hamptons, enjoying a few days away from the craziness of working at a summer camp. 

Quality mother-daughter bonding, snapping beans in preparation for a clam dinner. Southampton is one of the few places I can rock that Lilly Pulitzer dress! Unfortunately, Lilly isn't very petite-friendly, so it's rare that I find a decently fitting piece. Believe it or not, I'm VERY tan in this picture (normally my paleness is blinding.)

Me and some friends at Lake George (we weren't swimming, we just happened to be passing by the public beach and decided to dip our toes.) I miss wearing sundresses. I love the vintage-y cut of this one, can't recall exactly where I got it, but it's one of my favorites.

At Ellis Island (there's that J.Crew skinny belt from my previous post). I remember that wall I was sitting on was very hot...

At a local polo match. Don't let these boys' Ralph Lauren polos and Ray-Bans fool you- they're actually English! They were my fellow camp counselors, and the camp I work at hires mainly from the UK. They were very excited to see their first polo match- and so was I! The dress I'm wearing is from Urban Outfitters, which isn't a store I usually find things I like at, but I absolutely LOVE this dress.

The sooner the warm weather comes, the better.

OMG! My hubby and I go to Lake George every summer during the 4th. It's a family tradition from my husband's family. Do you go often?

I was up there for the 4th, too!! Last year was my first time going, but it's become an annual trip for our camp's staff to make, so I'll be going up there again.
