Summer is Like the Ultimate One-Night Stand

“Summer is kind of like the ultimate one-night stand: hot as hell, totally thrilling, and gone before you know it.”
 When I first stumbled upon this quote, I chuckled. Then I thought about it, and discovered that I agree 100%!
Today was the first day (throughout my whole 6 days of summer vacation) I began to get that summer feeling. After lathering on the sunscreen I went adventuring with Nat today and soaked up the rays. As the recently-90-degree-weather cooled off late this afternoon, I whipped out my pleather jacket, quickly seizing the opportunity to add a touch of edginess to this sweet floral dress. More about this outfit: I actually do not remember where I got this dress specifically. All I know is I purchased it last year at a small boutique somewhere in Los Angeles, before the bustier trend really caught on. Currently, it is the only piece in my wardrobe following this trend.. so treasure it, I must! I am truly glad it is summer, because now I can dust off my seemingly never-ending collection of floral garments (mostly shirts) I have picked up over the years.  When I think of summer, off the top of my head, I think of floral prints, ice cream, guava juice, and chlorine. What do you think of?

Summer makes me think of cutoff shorts, sandy feet, candy-colored nail polish, and lollipop! Quotes with interesting double meanings are always intriguing, haha :)

love this!
I think of sand between the toes, red poppies, beautiful sunlight, popsicles, that great color that pools are, wearing swimsuits all day, and lemon juice in my hair while tanning on warm bricks <3
I'M SO GLAD IT'S FINALLY SUMMER!
