Summer, Be Nice

It is that time of year where I no longer have to check the weather, I already know everyday for the next three months it will be hot as balls. I will have to carefully plan out each outfit according to where I will be that day, and have layers that can easily be shed in the heat and thrown back on in the intense AC. Sunblock will be slathered all over my all but translucent skin, causing me to break out like a hormonal teenager, and no matter how many pairs of sunglasses I own, I will lose them all.

Summer does have some plus-sides, once you get past the bugs and clean off all of your fans, the days seem longer. The day is not done at 6:30pm, nope. If there is still daylight in the sky until 9ish at night, then you can stay up watching TV. You can take an impromptu walk up to the Dairy Queen and get a frozen yogurt. If you are not easily freaked out by bugs, you can enjoy lightning bugs once it is dark. Just make sure bath yourself in bug spray so you don’t get eaten alive by mosquitoes. As much as I crave brisk-cool fall mornings, colorful leaves & cider, I will try to be friends with summer this year. At least for now.

  4. Man, you and I could be twins - that is totally how I feel about summer too! I try to be friends with it, but I long for the cool days of Autumn!

    I adore this outfit - the sweater is so cute with the embroidered flowers! I love your polka dot skirt and I really love your butterfly bag!!! Also, I swear I have the same earrings you have on just in pink.

  7. i love summer, but yes, it does have its downfalls! for instance, my hair today is twice as big as normal due to the humidity! i did, however, discover a trick...rub your body with a dryer sheet to keep mosquitoes away. i'm not sure why it works, but it does (and smells way better than bug spray)!

  9. I know what you mean about sunshades. I lose them so fast! That is why I buy the cheapest possible. Usually, on clearance when not needed. But even here in winter, good to have them on a snow day.

    Raspberry picking time here.

    Love your outfit. All the best making amends with summer. Its an on going job.

  14. Amen! I have to dress exactly the same way, with a cardigan always in my bag. It is easier to be friends with summer in the beginning before you suffer for heat fatigue and just want it all to end.
