make-believe: train to montauk

June 21, 2012

sometimes i like to daydream about little solo adventures. now that it’s officially summer, i’m in full adventure-dreaming mode. truth be told, i’m not the best solo traveler. i like to bop around by myself for awhile, but come evening, i’m ready to chat with someone about everything that happened. here, a few things i’d like to take on a day-trip to montauk. i like to think i’d catch an early morning train and spend the day exploring and filling up my bag with beach treasures. come late afternoon, i’d be ready to wend my way back through the marshes to be home in time for dinner. of course, i had to include snacks and reading material to keep me company.

1. rita dress* 2. straw fedora 3. the great gatsby 4. pop-top bottle 5. chocolate bar 6. open oxfords 7. mason bag

*{sample sale loot and already snatched, but there are others}!
