It's Summertime

Well, we've finally reached that point here in Tennessee where it's just. so. hot. It's humid and you sweat if you walk more than 5 feet. Though I'm happy we got as much cool/warm weather as we did this spring, we aren't usually blessed with an abundance of that.

In other news...this skirt is my new favorite. 


 I'm sure you all are sick and tired of seeing some kind of yellow scarf in my hair (or maybe you haven't noticed that it's become a trend of mine) but I didn't realize how drawn I am to yellow, especially in my hair, until recently. I think it's because I've had the same hair color for so long I'm accumulating colors I like to see against it. But soon, I shall abandon the dark hair and finally start rinsing out the dye to see my natural color again. I know, I've been talking about that for months and months, but in a short while it will finally be time!

  1. Aren't you just as gorgeous as the first days of summer themselves, dear gal! Love this sweet, fun novelty print skirt filled outfit - and of course the yellow hair scarf, too (I had noticed, and though yellow looked fab against your dark locks).

    With all my heart, I hope you and Ty have a joyful, fun filled summer!

  14. Looking lovely! Your shirt is so wonderfully crisp. I never think of Brooks Brothers as a place where I'd want to shop, but I might have to rethink that.

    1. Yes, it really can be a nice asset for simple class pieces. You have to look around a bit, and unless you grab it at sale price it's pretty pricey. I'm a big sale lover :)

  18. Beautiful outfit! That skirt is *awesome*. Like you gravitate towards yellow scarves, I gravitate to white ones, so I know the feeling. lol It just started getting hot and humid here too, we've been lucky this spring but I knew it couldn't last!
