Inspirational Monday: Ripped Shorts

I've been wearing cutoff shorts for as long as I can remember. I even remember cutting own old pair of jeans into shorts when I was younger in order to have the perfect pair of cutoffs. Brands like One Teaspoon have made a killing and brought back the destroyed ripped jeans. As much as I love their style of destroyed jeans I'm not all about that price tag, these shorts can cost anywhere from $80 and upward. I'm still all about the DIY destroyed denim.

So take a pair of scissors to those old jeans! I promise the fraying gets better after each wear and wash.

What do you think about destroyed shorts?

The husband and I celebrated our second year of marriage last weekend by having a stay-cation. We had initially planned doing a small weekend getaway in Long Island but since we are going to Europe in August we decided to put that money to our trip. We still made our way to the Long Island Vineyards but on a smaller scale. We hoped on a tour through Hampton Luxury Liners of 3 different wineries (Duck Walk, Osprey's Dominion, and Baiting Hollow). The weather during the day wasn't ideal for outside activities but we still had a great time tasting the wines, enjoying some live music, and people watching. My favorite wines were from Duck Walk! Go for the dessert wines (my favorite was the Blackberry Wine). The best scenery and outdoor space that I wish we could have taken more advantage of was Osprey's Dominion.

This tour (purchase through Groupon or Hampton Luxury Liner) is perfect for those local to the city who a. don't have a car c. don't want to spend a lot of money on a driver and a hotel and c. don't have a car -- you shouldn't drink and dive anyway.

No I'm not talking about Beyonce. As much as I do love her...I am however talking about summer in a glass. As soon as it hits the mid-70s there's nothing that I crave more then lemonade. Or an Arnold Palmer (half lemonade and half iced tea). I'm so happy to have found that my favorite local coffee shop sells lemonade! Made the trip to the park all that much sweeter.

What do you crave during the summer months?
