ok, i suppose it isn’t officially summer for a few more days, but the last few weeks have certainly felt like it to me! the weather is warm, all of the school kids are out for the summer and roaming the streets, and my favorite swimming spots are filled with families soaking up the sun. i’ve been making my best effort to take it easy on the weekends, avoiding work like the plague and spending as many hours as possible lounging around outdoors with some sort of summery cocktail in hand. most weekends have been pretty casual when it comes to outfits, but yesterday i decided to step up my summer game just a little bit in my new carven pinafore. i’d been drooling over this acid yellow dress for over a year, hoping that by some strange series of events, it would somehow be mine. dreaming about owning this little gem actually led me to make a concerted effort to lay off the spending and to save up a little for more special pieces. having said that, i still waited for it to go on super sale at net-a-porter before taking the plunge. me and this dress, we’re gonna have some fun times this summer, haha.
