DSC_1264DSC_1253DSC_1251DSC_1244DSC_1256DSC_1254I’ve been a bad blogger this summer. I’ve been way off my posting schedule and it’s certainly been on my mind, but it’s been a lovely summer. Sometimes it’s great just to let everything go and enjoy yourself. I’ve definitely kept busy. I took some little trips, attended some weddings, worked as the Site Coordinator for summer school, worked on a ton of crafts and projects for my classroom, enjoyed time with friends and, well…I fell in love. Suffice it to say, it’s been a wonderful summer. As this last real week of free-time zips by I can’t help but feel a little wistful that it’s coming to an end. Summer 2014, I’ll definitely remember you.

Lately my outfits have oscillated between repeats of my faves from last year, like this little Issa dress, or completely casual shorts and tees. It sounds silly, but I’ve discovered a new love of the pony tale (see photos above), matte gold nail polish, and these super old Banana Republic sandals. I’ve had them forever and they have a bit of a jingle when I step thanks to a slightly loose chain detail, but I have found they go with everything (even though they’re orange). I haven’t been shopping much this summer (although I just bought a few fall things) so it’s been all about enjoying my existing summer wardrobe and finding little ways to make it feel new again.
