Insta Lately August

{Top: Chicwish| Skirt: Naven| Bag: Chloé| Heels: Schutz, similar here}

Is the summer passing at super speeds for anyone else?  I still can't get over the fact that we're well into August, and kids are already heading back to school.  I have to admit, autumn is my favorite season.  But as much as I love the fall, and all the fashion, I am just not ready for it.  I'll be hanging onto my sundresses and bathing suits for as long as I can, and thankful that I still have a couple more trips to the lake, and a trip to the Cape before summer ends.  Since it is mid august, I thought it would be a good time to do an Instagram roundup since not all of my #OOTD make it to the blog.  Make sure to follow along @thomasrachael.

This past Sunday, we spent the day in Boston walking around and doing a little shopping.   Newbury Street was closed to traffic, so it was the perfect day for strolling the streets and people watching.  I also wanted to check out the Daniel Wellington Pop Up Shop located at 211 Newbury Street.  I love their classic timepieces, and am excited to be collaborating with the brand.  If you're in the area, make sure to check it out.  You can also get 15% off your online order with the code: THOMASRACHAEL.

If you follow me on Snapchat (Rach480) or Insta Stories, you may have seen that I had my very first blow out from Drybar last week, and am now obsessed.  I usually have to style my hair every day, but my blow out lasted three days, even surviving my intense workouts.  My stylist gave me great advise for both styling my hair and helping it last, and I will definitely be going back!

Love, love, love these flats.

{Sports Bra: Forever 21| Shorts: 7 for all Mankind}

I had been hearing a lot of great things about Forever 21 active wear, and finally decided to try it out myself.  I especially love their selection of sports bras, and you really can't beat the prices. I was impressed with the fit, and so far the durability has been good.

Just because....

In love with this sketch that I had done at the Rue La La and Cotton On event earlier this summer.

I think this may be my favorite outfit yet from the summer.  There is something about an all white look that is so crisp and put together.

A little family photo from the lake on the twins 2nd Birthday.  I still can't get over the fact that they are two!

{Booties: Dolce Vita}

I finally found the perfect pair of open toe booties! These will be great for transitioning into fall, and I'm sure you'll be seeing them a lot on the blog in the next few months.  Sorry.

I wish everyone a great hump day, and rest of the week!  Again, make sure to follow along on Instagram here
