High On Summertime


Outfit Details:   Top: Debs   Shorts: c/o Oasap   Bag: c/o Wholesale Dress   Sandals: Forever 21



This is a top I picked up at Debs a while ago. I just couldn't say no to the fun print! Besides that, it was one of those "Omgsh, can't pass that up" deal. Haha, how could I leave this $4 cutie on the clearance rack?


I was meeting Kirsten after work last weekend, so I changed from my work uniform into this easy-breezy outfit. It was perfect for dealing with the 90+ degree weather! Although I've got to say...I caught quite a few stares in my direction when I waltzed into the mall wearing this. Hmm...I'm thinking it's the lace shorts. A girl commented on them when we were in one store asking where I got them. Haha, I love when that happens! :)


Anyway, I cannot believe July 4th is already over! Where did June go? I got my August issue of Seventeen and they're already talking about back to school stuff. NOOOOO!!!!


Hope all of my fellow American readers had a safe and fun 4th! No firework mishaps hopefully.
Mine was a good one. After work, I met with Kirsten and Kelsie to grab some food, and after talking for a bit, we walked over the college campus where they were going to have a fireworks show when it got dark. Patrick and I met up there, so all four of us got to hang out. Although...Kelsie and Kirsten would always manage to kind of hang out behind us, so it seemed we were paired off into groups.

I got to try longboarding (really briefly), since that's what Patrick used to get around campus. Its like snowboarding, so I could get used to it if I practiced. Maybe I will too, since it seems we're hanging out a lot. I certainly don't mind! :)


At one point, Kelsie started giggling hysterically during the fireworks show, and I had to peer back at her and Kirsten curiously. Apparently they were having fun mentally picturing me and Patrick as a couple...and were actually taking pictures of the two of us. Sigh. It certainly seems that's the way people perceive us. Makes it difficult to be "just friends" like I originally hoped. Ah well, whatever's meant to be will happen!

I'm feeling ecstatic over how this summer is turning out. So many good things are happening. I got a job that I'm starting to really like, am making new friends (and one pretty cute one haha), and I have time to hang out with them and just have fun!
I suddenly can empathize with a line from this country song: "I'm a little drunk on you, and high on summertime."

That top was only $4? That's way awesome! I also really like those shoes of yours... I've been searching for some black and gold sandals and those are just too perfect really. If you wake up and they're missing, I didn't know who took them. Honest. ;)

First: That outfit is amazing! I can totally understand why people stared at you - I would, too, if someone passed me by looking so gorgeous. ;) I love the combination of shorts and a lofty top. The pattern is amazing, and the shorts are even greater. They look a little bit like old-fashioned underwear, really romantic and totally biedermaier retro. ;)

Second: I am happy to hear you have such a great summer and things are going smoothly for you. ;) Hope that "high time" lasts very, very long for you. And if people are meant to be together, they will be at some poinrt in their lives. ;) I strongly believe in that!
