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 girl...like 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!!
