Long time no see! I know I give you the same excuses every time I haven't blogged in a bit, but you know how it is...life. Crazy few months over here. We moved to a new place, J was in Germany for pretty much all of June, and it's summer in texas...which as we all know means "winter" for me...like you don't leave your house unless you absolutely have to because it's just too freaking hot.
Some of the girls at work like to joke about how often I complain about summer. Basically every day that I work I'm talking about it and if you read my blog then you know pretty much every blog post prob mentions it. And as much as July is slowly melting me, there is a teeny bit of hope because fall clothes are slowly starting to arrive. Now of course normal "texans" will not wear this stuff until like December but I am already incorporating it into my wardrobe. The secret is just turning the air down really low so it feels like fall!! I can't even explain to you the sense of hope and happiness I feel when I see a suede bootie, or an olive sweater, or a faux fur collared coat. It makes my heart so full and considering all of the craziness that has been going on in the world (which will be a whole different blog post) I welcome anything that can bring a smile to my face right now and if that just happens to be navy suede booties then so be it.
But seeing as it's 104 degrees the closest I can get to fall is this outfit...cute floral shorts, a tie dye slouchy sweatshirt, and my new fave plum flats. They kind of are like little elf shoes which makes me love them even more!! And do you know what else I would LOVE??? If you would take a minute to nominate me, Melis Lauren, for Fashion Blogger of the Year for the San Antonio Fashion Awards!! It would mean so much to me and I would love you forever!! Just click HERE to nominate me...it's super easy and would be such an honor for me!! Thanks loves...you really are the best!!!
