On the Dock

This weekend Dan & I took advantage of the beautiful weather we had on Saturday by spending some time at Edinboro Lake.  I often walk there from my house and go on power walks or jogs in the spring and summer months.  We spent the afternoon reading, people watching, and watching the cutest little black lab puppy exploring the lake and attempting to jump off the docks while on a leash.

As you can see, I'm reading the third and final installment in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy and it's SO GOOD! I would highly recommend the series to any fan of mysteries and suspense.  So far the first book was my favorite, but they have all been very good, so if you're looking for an exciting, fast-paced read check them out!

I'm really happy with the way these pictures and this outfit turned out.  I feel like this outfit really reflects my personal style very well.  In the beginning days of my blogs, I feel like I was striving too hard to put together these really creative outfits for my outfit posts that I wouldn't normally wear out.  I'm really striving to find a balance of wearing outfits that I feel comfortable in while still trying to be creative with the pieces in my closet.
