Happy Friday, friends! It’s hard to believe another weekend is rolling around already. Gotta love a 3-day work week! Okay, so I’m on vacation, but I’m assuming those of you who are working this week feel like it was super short.
On our way to Maine, we stopped through Portsmouth, New Hampshire for the night. It’s a great walking town so before we headed out the next morning, we went out to explore and shot this look.
I’ve featured this rust tie front tank before, but I realized when I was packing for this trip that I never did a full outfit post with it so this worked out perfectly!
I wore this top with shorts and sandals in Disney World last month when Cyndi and I were there on a press trip, but it works just as well with jeans and ballet flats.
Unfortunately my top shrunk in the dryer (I wasn’t supposed to dry it) so it’s a little bit shorter than it should be and you can see some skin (or in my case, shapewear, haha!) where it ties in front. This doesn’t bother me and I still wear it this way, but word to the wise, if you like the longer length, be sure to lay it flat to dry per the washing instructions!!!
I accessorized with this triple charm initial pendant and my favorite silver bracelets. In fact, I’ve worn these same accessories every day of our trip. There’s just no need to bring an assortment of accessories on a casual vacation and this is one way I try to keep my packing minimal. I always overpack tops so I have lots of options, but I’ll happily wear the same jewelry (and jeans, for that matter!) every day.
Speaking of packing, I’m thinking of doing a vacation packing post — it’s nothing groundbreaking, but let me know if you’re interested. I have a picture of mostly what I packed and I can whip a post up for next week sometime if that’s of interest.
Finally, a crossbody bag is perfect for sightseeing and exploring a new town.
I made a mistake here in Maine and brought my big tote with me on a day trip when we ended up walking over two miles, and I regretted that choice! I did need some of the stuff I had inside, but I should have brought it with me and left it in the car and transferred the bare essentials over to the crossbody for our excursions. Live and learn, I guess!

And it’s Friday so that means linkup day!
