I don't know about you guys, but I have a death grip onto summer. As much as I have been complaining about the heat, I've been enjoying half day Fridays and sun-kissed skin. This has been the hottest and most humid summer I have ever experienced living here in St. Louis, and while I wish for snow while I'm sweating buckets, I know the logical side of me is not ready to give up my shorts and open toed shoes. This is also an awkward time for blogging. If I were a proactive blogger, I'd be sharing all of my fall cravings! But the thought of putting on knee high boots and blanket scarves right now for the sake of photos makes me want to throw up just a little! It's hard enough to not sweat while wearing shorts and sandals! I can't imagine adding more layers. All that being said, I'm going to hold onto my summer outfits and subsequently continue to share these looks on the blog for just a bit longer. Hopefully you don't mind!
It was ridiculously rainy all day yesterday, which would make sense since I needed to take blog photos. #fashionbloggerprobs The show must go on for the blog, so luckily we were able to take advantage of the local Madison County Transit bus stop which has a generously sized covered walkway where we could be protected from the elements.
I'm digging this combo. Camo and pink pair so well together and the chambray acts as the glue to seal it all together. The chambray also serves the same purpose as a cardigan when I'm indoors and trying to regulate my body temp with the frigid air conditioning. Chino shorts are my absolute favorite to wear in the summer. I have several colors, and luckily I never got rid of them because they're all fitting me again! It's refreshing!
I just got a hair cut last week. I'm pretty sure it's been a good 8 months since I've had a trim. It wasn't really intentional - I had an appointment back in April, but it was the weekend before a good friend's wedding and I wanted to keep my hair long so I just had her trim my bangs. The next appointment was scheduled for sometime in June but she had to reschedule on me. But then I had to reschedule on her because of a conflict that came up which pushed my appointment into August! Once again the cut was scheduled on the heels of another wedding, so while I did have her trim the dead ends, my bangs, and my layers, for the most part she kept the length. My hair hasn't been this long in forever. She literally had to get down on her knees to cut my ends! On the upside, my long sideswept bangs are in a good place right now, I'm loving them. I just wish they didn't grow so fast!!!
Outside of that, thanks for all the well wishes last week on my crazy schedule! I survived my overnight trip and I think I'm finally all caught up on my sleep! This week is going to be a bit of a whirlwind. Remember the bachelorette party and bridal shower? Well, the wedding is this weekend so I have the rehearsal to attend on Thursday, the bridesmaids are staying with her on her wedding eve Friday night, and then the stylists come for hair and makeup at 8am Saturday morning! I'm taking Thursday and Friday off of work to mentally prepare and get some last minute wedding stuff done. The short week will be great, though I know this weekend's festivities will be so busy, the time off will just be the calm before the storm!
Hope you all have a fabulous week and don't forget to link up!
