swinging into summer...

 Well friends, summer is officially here.  That lovely time of bad hair days, sweat in places you shouldn't be sweating, and people wearing too short shorts and wondering if they own a mirror or just have really bad friends that tell them "omg those shorts look so cute on you"...yay summer...insert huge eye roll here.

Honestly summer is just the worst and the only thing that gets me through it is knowing that the fashion world is always a season ahead which means soon the stores will be full of sweaters and beanies and booties and I can pretend that I live somewhere that allows me to start wearing those things in fall when really I can't wear them until like December...damn you Texas!!

So how do I cope with the dreaded 120 degree days while still keeping my love of all things fall alive?  Well, one is really good air conditioning...and the other is you can still rock "fall" colors even though it's summer!!  I don't really do many pastels or neons, but give me something olive and I'm a happy this adorbs Swoop In Swing Dress from Tobi!  The swing shape makes it perfect for staying cool on a hot summer day, but the color make me feel like cooler days aren't far away...hey I'll do whatever it takes to get me through the heat!!  And since it's summer I paired it with my fave Free People pink booties and this crazy knot necklace that I got from a thrift store like a million years ago, but I can't wait til it's cooler to wear it with black tights and a chunky sweater!  It's definitely a piece that I will be wearing year round!!

stay wild moon child...

Happy friday pretties...and happy full moon day!!  Now I don't know about you, but I'm one of those people that is totally in touch with the moon...or maybe it's the moon that is totally in touch with me.  Like I will be extra emotional, or have random times where I'm super anxious and feel like my insides are all fluttery, or feel like something major is coming...and then I find out that there is a full moon within a few days of all of this happening.  And the funny thing is that it happens almost every time, and every time I totally forget and then roll my eyes and laugh when I realize that...oh, it's a full moon tonight, no wonder I've been cray.  

It's almost like the moon is trying to remind me to be more in tune with my surroundings and to pay attention to what I really need in my life at the moment.  And this full moon is in Sagittarius, which is my zodiac sign, so I get extra special moon powers today!!  It also comes at a good time, because J leaves tomorrow for his summer drill for the National Guard so while I will obviously miss him, it will be the perfect time to focus on myself, because we all need a little selfish me time once in awhile.

And in honor of my moon mother, I'm rockin' this adorbs graphic tee from Target which is so comfy and I am loving it paired with my all time fave flares from Free People!  It's the perfect look for staying wild on full moon friday!!
