what I wore: summer daze

Thursday, June 21, 2012

the details 
hat - vintage
sunglasses - target
shirt - c/o Romwe
necklace - gift from Kyla and LA
skirt - c/o Modcloth

I've kind of been wearing this same outfit for a week or so now. Just to clarify, by same outfit I mean same basic thing, not exact thing. It would probably really smell by now if that were the case. Sleeveless shirts, skirts and sandals are about the only thing I can stand to wear. It has been so incredibly hot. The kind of hot where you just give up trying to wear cute clothes and want to just spend all day sitting in the air conditioning in a baggy shirt and your underwear.

One good thing about this weather is that we've been spending lots of time at the beach. Our normal beach (the one I usually collect trash on) has been crazy busy. So we found a new one that is fairly quiet. The only other people there are doing the same thing as us - looking for things, just walking along the beach and trying to avoid the crowds.  I search for sea glass and lost treasures (and of course, occasionally splish-splash around) while Kevin looks for fossils.

On the day these pictures were taken a woman was walking directly in front of where I was sitting on a log and beside where Kevin was searching. She reached down, picked up something and her eyes lit up. She ran over to me saying she was sorry but had to show someone what she had just found. She found the most beautiful fossil! Fossils normally aren't that impressive to me, at least not ones of small shells, but this sucker was gorgeous. (Hindsight is 20/20 but man, I should have taken a picture!) I felt so bad because it was literally right beside where Kevin was looking. He was pretty heartbroken. Only a few moments later I found a nice piece of sea glass. I guess some of her luck rubbed off on me.
Today's plans include making some ice cream, eating said ice cream, tidying the house, doing some blog planning for July and other computer work. All in all, just taking it easy because it's too hot to do much else! Hope you're having a fabulous day!
xoxo

PS. Did you spot Kevin jumping in my sunglasses reflection?

  3. I love this outfit, it's just so fun and that skirt is an amazing color. It's starting to get pretty hot up here on the mountain so we haven't been able to go on many adventure until late at night, but the good thing is that is usually when all the deer are out :)

  25. Although I Love everything you wear this is probably my favorite outfit, it's the type of outfit I'd have to wear once a week.

  28. It's so weird hearing about how hot it is everywhere else in the country right now. We've finally been having sushiney days here in Seattle, but it's still mild enough that you can be comfortable wearing pants or a cardigan if you want to. Anyhoo, I love the print on your shirt, so cute! And I've been meaning to get a pair of saltwater sandals... I used to *live* in those things when I was a kid!

  29. I just wanna let you know that you look amazing in this outfit! Also it fits you perfectly and you seem so comfortable and happy on it.
    I read your blog everyday, it's a "must"! haha. I'm from Argentina, so reading things from people around the world and knowing what they do is awesome, especially coming from a cat lady like you!
    The best wishes for you, I'll keep reading and enjoying your posts.

  35. I always thought that if I dyed my hair an unnatural color I'd have this odd feeling that my clothing choices would begin to revolve around my hair, but now I'm starting to realize that rainbows go with everything! =)Great shots as always.
