Is it really September already? I mean really. How the heck did this summer go by so freakin’ fast? Life in general seems to be flying lately. I can’t believe I graduated college this past May and that this week classes resumed again except that this time I wasn’t there to experience it. I still can’t believe that I’m done! I’m not going to lie, it’s a little depressing. Those four years went by really really fast, and judging by the rate at which this summer is flying, I have a feeling that the next four years are going to go by even faster. Oh to grow up and have to experience the “real world.” I am deathly afraid. I just hope the future is good to me. I really really do.
For now I will try to prolong the summer by throwing on flowy skirts and bright colors. Chicago is a very cold city most of the year, and though fall fashion is the best, it’s not everyday we get to celebrate beautiful weather. My plan for now is to hold on to these 80 degree days that Chicago has been offering and grip them very tightly.
Oh and by the way, did I mention how much I love second hand stuff sometimes? This skirt was given to me by a friend during a closet clean out session and it’s one of my absolute faves. Even my mother steals it from me sometimes. I’m pretty sure this style will always work. It just screams bohemian summer! Plus, they’re so light and comfortable. The shoes are from a local resale shop. I fell in love with them at first sight. I stole the scarf from my mother’s dress and used it as a belt, because like I’ve said before, I am obsessed with the print.
Go enjoy the last hot days of summer now, but be sure to come back soon! 🙂
P.S. I’ve been noticing a pattern lately…I’m definitely a skirts and dresses kind of girl…I never really noticed it before because my style tends to vary according to my mood. But I have clearly been depending on skirts and dresses to get me through the summer. Don’t you just love discovering things about your personal style?
