Snapshots: Polo, Pools and Poppies

August 9, 2015

Hi friends! Today I thought I’d share a little “life-update” post.

This weekend I went out to Long Island with some good friends of mine. As the title of this post hints, there was a lot of polo, pool-ing and poppies (among other flowers).

I got to help out with the Piaget Hamptons Cup Polo Match that’s taking place today. 500 gift bags and a bit of a tan later, we left the beautiful Equuleus Polo Club and headed home.

But not before stopping by a random little flower stall we found along the way. Some of the best Instagram advice I ever read was to never pass up on an opportunity to snap some flowers for future posts.

The day ended with a nice pool-side coffee and more tanning (I live in Scotland the rest of the year, okay?!).

Did you do anything fun this weekend? Ever tried to play polo? (It’s hard!)

    I’ve never watched, played, or done anything related to polo. It strikes me as a very classy and sophisticated activity. I’d totally be up for helping out with one. I hope the work wasn’t too laborious for you! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      It sounds so posh- I almost feel bad talking about it hahaha. And it wasn’t hard work at all. I even got a hat out of it!

    Those polo fields are so so so green. They’re blinding! In California we’re in a drought, so almost everything is brown-ish. I definitely agree, flowers always make for a great post!

      That green was breath-taking. I’m sorry about California’s brown-ness! Thanks for reading Angelina!

    Gorgeous! I would die to go to that–I rode for years and years and I had friends who played polo. I would love to frolic in those fields!

    • Pia S August 10, 2015 at 20:59

      Right?! All I could think about how awesome riding through those fields would be.

    That looks like SO much fun! I’m glad you got to have a fun weekend surrounded by beautiful flowers! 🙂

    • Pia S August 10, 2015 at 20:59
