Surviving Summer


Scarf  & earrings: Nordstrom| Dress c/o HERE| Velvet mules: c/o HERE| Vintage leather clutch: Thrifted

The 1st day of August reminds us that the dog days of summer are almost over 😲 Although many of us spend the majority of the year anticipating summer weather, sometimes when it arrives it can be downright brutal. Don't get me wrong: summer is hands down my favorite season 😜 However, if I am completely honest, here are a few of my not so favorite things about summer madness:
  • extreme heat
  • excess sweating
  • humidity (although a measure of it really is good for your skin)
  • unpredictable hair (good curls, bad curls and everything in-between)
  • chub rub
    What will you be happy to say goodbye to when summer 2017 reaches its end?!
    Until next time,
    XO

    4. Not only is that such a pretty floral maxi but the head wrap is perfect in this styling and I love those cute slides. One of your best looks so far Joi. =)

    6. You have the more gorgeous dress! Summer is actually my least favorite season. Fall is my favorite, mostly because I love layering and I can still wear sweaters and skirts.

    8. Stunning dress! You always look amazing! I do love warm weather, but mainly when I'm on holiday and can sunbathe all day. I'm training for a marathon and I hate running in heat so I've been quite pleased that we've had cooler weather and cloudy skies in the UK. As long as it's not raining I'm happy.

      1. Thank you Jacqui! These shoes are my best kept 'secret', I've been wearing them all summer long, but haven't featured them yet on the blog or social media ;)
