i don’t know about you, but i’m feeling the tinge of summer. i’m sure kids are sitting in their classrooms looking out the windows just waiting for the last day of school before they can run free, and take day trips to water parks and boardwalks. i won’t be afforded quite the same luxury, but i have been enjoying the changing atmosphere. over the weekend, we drove an hour east to lake del valle to bbq and enjoy the sun. we sat on a park bench under a tree shooting the shit and filling our bellies with grilled veggies and fancy farmer’s market meat. we waited an hour, or maybe it was two or three, before hiking out to find a swimming spot along the water while the moon orbited around the earth and covered up the sun, and the light dimmed around us momentarily. and i stuck my feet into the murky lake mud and waded in the water drinking a beer until i was too cold to stand it anymore.

i completely forgot to bring my camera with me, so i can only document that memory with words, but this is one of my almost summer outfits. it’s basically the same thing that i wore a few weeks ago, a bit of a summer uniform for me. simple tank, wrap skirt, wedge sandals.

top: stylemint blossom tank
skirt: vintage denim wrap skirt (similar)
shoes: kork-ease ava wedges
bag: family affairs tote
lipstick: nars heat wave
glasses: 3.1 phillip lim from a few seasons back

  1. I feel summer in the air too, I was just saying that the other day. It’s coming early this year for us Californians. Hence why I’m now living in shorts and dresses!

  2. This is so summery and pretty. You can never go wrong with red and whtie stripes! Especially with a blue skirt. I can never get enough of an americana-inspired outfit.
