During our last week in New Haven the helpmeet and I decided to take a boat tour of the Thimble Islands in the Long Island Sound. It was incredibly fun – I love being on a boat on the ocean and feeling the wind in my hair and seeing the vastness of the sea.

After the tour I changed into my fun time shoes (wearing these babies on a boat is just asking to trip and fall overboard so they stayed in the car while I wore more sensible flats and a cardigan on the boat) and we had a lunch date in the Branford area. It’s all part of my “Goodbye Connecticut” series of day tours!

hahaha, I like how you call them "fun time shoes." That's exactly what they are! Because although it's nice to be stylish, it's no fun to be stylish and in pain when you wanna have fun. ;)

Those blue wedges are uber cute, though, and I love how they're colorblocked!

What a lovely day for a cruise around Thimble Islands and for a photo shoot. I haven't done that in a very long time. Thanks for reminding me of the fun things to do around CT!!

Waaaa! Those pictures look lovely! I bet you had an amazing time by the sea ; u ;

Hahaha that was the smartest thing to do! As amazing as those shoes are, I bet they'd get you tripping every step of the way! Still, they're really cute, and that color's very cool! I really liked this outfit :3

This is my favourite look, the printed tank, bright blue pencil skirt and those heels are so killer. Such a great combination!!

AWesome photos! It's always hard saying goodbye to a place you've called home. But day tours sound like a great way to really get the most before you leave!

I totally LURVE your fun shoes! They are so pretty. I think you should make it your goal to be able to run marathons in those wedges. They're too cute not to always wear!
