This past Saturday was so much fun! For Father's Day, my dad and I played in our club's Father/Daughter golf outing. They had it when we were younger, then stopped doing it and have started it back up again!

Typically, Callie plays with my dad in this tournament because she is the golfer. She was on the golf team in high school and captain of the varsity team. She keeps up with it and is really good! 

On the other hand, there is me. I was a cheerleader in high school and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, cheerleading does not help you win the Father/Daughter golf tournament, ha! 

Besides the fact that I won't be on the next PGA tour, we had such a fun time (we missed Callie, though!) and the tournament was so well done. When we arrived, all the daughters were given a gift bag and afterward, we had a dinner where prizes were awarded! It was fun being with friends and family after a fun day on the course. I feel so lucky to have such amazing parents and have them as my best friends. They're truly the best! 

When I was looking for an outfit for the tournament, I had to keep in mind the club's dress code. Your skort (or shorts) can't be too short and you have to be wearing a collared shirt. Surprisingly, finding cute golf clothes for women is like finding a needle in a haystack. I found most of the options to be boring or frumpy or made of a material that wasn't great for activity. 

Enter Vineyard Vines: I knew they had some great athletic gear like leggings, but I really didn't know how amazing their golf and tennis selection is for both men and women. The pieces are high-quality, very functional, and SO cute! Not only did I wear my outfit for the golf tournament, but it's an outfit I'd wear to run errands, to go on a long walk with Henry and to play tennis!

The women's pieces run true to size. I am wearing a size small in the top and a size medium in the skirt. I sized up in the skirt because I was concerned about length. However, you should definitely stick to your normal size or even size down. The medium skirt was really big on me and length would be no issue because it's pretty long (I'm 5'6"). I also think you can size down in the top, the small fit but was roomy and wasn't as tight as I like for athletic endeavors!

As for my dad's outfit, I am obsessed. He has never been one to shy away from color or print and I love that about him. He always puts together such a great outfit and he is such a fan of Vineyard Vines. I loved that he chose the patchwork shorts because they remind me of Vineyard Vines when I was in college! I still have patchwork pieces from years ago that I just love!

As much as my dad is a great dresser, I have to take credit for my entire family's love of Shep Shirts, though. I was the first to get one and ever since, my mom, dad, sister, and I all have several each because we love them so much. The relaxed Shep Shirt is my favorite of all time and I saw this one in Nantucket and absolutely fell in love.

This is not a sponsored post, however, Vineyard Vines generously gifted us the outfits!

This outfit post is a photo overload, so if you have made it this far, I'm so glad! This has to be one of my all-time favorite white dresses EVER. I wore it while in Nantucket and it was so perfect for cocktails and dinner. The sleeves and scarf were much appreciated because it was a bit chilly!

I shot these photos on the back patio at 76 Main where we were staying. Isn't it adorable?! It took relaxation to a whole new level!

So reasons why I love this dress?! It's structured but comfortable and flattering. It's thick so it's not see through at all and made of a crepe fabric so it can be dressed up or down depending on your shoes/accessories! It's pricey, but extremely well-made and cut in a classic, fun way that you can wear for years to come. I also feel like this style is ageless. You could wear this at age 18 or age 50!

The length hits right above my knees and is ever-so-slightly longer in the back, it has 3/4 sleeves and a classic crew-neck making the look of this dress classic and modest. It'd be great for work or a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner! 

These dresses are by EDIT and since getting the white one, I am just dying for the black one, too! They come in a bunch of colors (navy, too!!). I think the black is soooo classic for fall/winter!

As far as sizing goes, I would say it runs true to size and if you are in between sizes, size down! I am wearing a size small, but since this is such a swing style, I could have easily sized down to an XS! 

Besides dresses, there are tops, too! They're so cute and I think they would look so great with a big chunky statement necklace! You can scroll through the widget above to see other pieces from the EDIT collection!

As for the scarf, I will do a separate post dedicated to this scarf because it is SO GOOD. It looks so much like a Hermes scarf for an absolute steal ($50) and there are so many beautiful color and print options.

I'm a big fan of Lark Hotels and have been lucky to stay in several of the locations over the years. Last year, I stayed at 21 Broad on Nantucket and absolutely loved it. So this year, I wanted to check out 76 Main. Lark Hotels specialize in beautiful boutique hotels in California and New England so even if you aren't headed to Nantucket, there are tons of locations to choose from. 

Funny enough, my two friends Katie and Carly had planned a trip at the exact same time as me (we figured it out only a few days before!). It was so much fun to have them staying only a few doors away from me.

76 Main is located in the heart of Nantucket. It's just blocks away from 21 Broad, too. As the name suggests, the hotel is right on Main Street. If you are familiar with the island, 76 Main is just steps away from Murray's Toggery Shop and many other adorable boutiques. It's also less than 10 minutes from the airport and about a 5-minute walk to the ferry.

There are so many reasons I loved 76 Main but I think my favorite is that 76 Main feels like home. You enter through the front door of the classic Nantucket home and are greeted with freshly baked cookies and a beautifully designed sitting room. You then head down the hall and it opens up to a beautiful navy and white kitchen with an adorable dining area. You can head out the kitchen door which takes you to the beautiful patio with ample seating and a cozy fire pit.

The kitchen is always stocked and has an incredible 24/7 coffee bar (one of my favorite amenities). You're greeted with a wonderful breakfast spread in the morning and a drink station in the evening for cocktail hour. It's kind of like you're staying at a good friend's Nantucket home. It's luxurious but welcoming and quaint at the same time.

The interiors were designed by Rachel Reider. One of the things that makes 76 Main so fun is that the exterior is so classic and very old school New England. It's a beautiful, classic home set on a picturesque cobblestone street. However, the interiors are totally revamped, modern, fun, and put you in a vacation state of mind. All of the rooms have their own unique designs with different touches yet it all flows together very cohesively.

I was actually looking for the tags on the towels and bedding because it was so luxurious and soft that I wanted to order it for my home! I had such a good night's sleep each night and I think that's always important wherever you are staying!

One of my favorite parts was relaxing by the fire with a cocktail in hand before dinner. It was chilly while we were there so the fire was cozy and made enjoying the outdoors really comfortable. 

Whether you want a romantic trip for two, a family getaway, or a girl's weekend, 76 Main is a perfect choice. Thank you so much for the lovely stay, 76 Main!

Gosh, do I love me some Primanti's sandwiches! If you are a Pittsburgher, I'm sure you feel the same way. Primanti's is a Pittsburgh institution and one of the recommendations I make to anyone that asks me what to do while in Pittsburgh! 

Besides Pittsburghers loving their Primanti's sammiches (that's yinzer speak for sandwiches), we also love pierogies. So I was SO excited when Mrs. T's Pierogies let me know about their partnership with Primanti's! 

The Polish Hill just launched on June 8th and is made with kielbasa, grilled slaw, melted provolone, spicy beer mustard, tomatoes, and Mrs. T's Pierogies (instead of fries). I tried it on the day it launched and it was SO delicious. I actually prefer the pierogies on the sandwich to the classic fries! 

You can try the Polish Hill at Primanti Bros. locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, and Michigan through mid-August! I personally love the Market Square location because it's central to everything downtown and has great outdoor seating. A great place to get together with friends and enjoy the summer weather! You also can't beat the original Strip District location, too.  

And can we talk about the fact that I was able to get a photo with FOUR of the pierogies! I am usually rooting for jalapeno Hannah during the pierogy races at the Pirates game, but now that I'm friends with all of them, it's going to be hard to root for just one! Thanks to Mrs.T's Pierogies for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

Lately 6/14/2018

Shop the Look:

Well, this week has been wonderful being away! I'll have a lot to tackle once I'm back but it's well worth it! This weekend, for Father's Day, my dad and I are playing a Father/Daughter golf outing at our club.

My sister Callie is most definitely the golfer in our family and since she is in Charlotte, my dad is stuck with me- the not-so-good golfer. Callie was varsity captain of the golf team... I was varsity cheerleading captain. Needless to say, my cheerleading skills won't be helping me too much this weekend, ha!

I'll be back next week with some Nantucket recaps. I can't wait to share all about my trip!

Wearing: I shared this dress on Instagram earlier this week and I just love it! It's so classic and easy to wear dressed up or down. I loved it for a day of travel with sneakers and a sweater!

Eating: I am SO obsessed with Kettle brand chips- my favorite is honey dijon. But, while I was in the airport, I spotted Dill pickle Kettle brand chips and figured why not! They are SO good. If you are a pickle chip fan, these are by far my favorite! 

Drinking: I am not a soda drinker anymore. In high school and college I was obsessed with Diet Coke but thankfully cut that one out. I will have a Coke every once in a while when I get a craving. I was in the airport the other day and they had a machine that had diet vanilla coke and I was in total heaven. It was such a good treat! 

Reading: I'm not typically into murder/mystery books, but this one really has me intrigued. Have any of you read The Two Mrs. Grenvilles?

Reading II: I am so intrigued by the idea of the Hyperloop and I love reading the up-to-date news stories about it. I read this article a little while ago and it's so interesting and makes it seem like it will happen sooner than later!

 Did you guys catch the trailer for the Nutcracker and the Four Realms from Disney?! It looks incredible and I can't wait until it comes out!

Listening: My June playlist is SO good! I'm obsessed with this song, Just Wanna Dance. It's so upbeat and fun! 

Loving: How cute is this navy and white skort?!

Pittsburgh-ing: Some friends got together last weekend and headed to Heinz Field. Top Golf is opening soon and they opened a weekend-long driving range in the stadium. It was really cool but also so odd to be playing golf on a football field!! We had a blast and we can't wait until Top Golf is open so we can have more fun! 

Quoting: 'And I hope you know you are not alone.' // See more of my favorites, here.
