Have we all reached the point in summer where trying just sounds exhausting, or is that just me? It's not that I'm unhappy with my outfits or anything (in fact, I quite like this one), but I can't pretend like I've been putting any real sort of creativity into them. It's hot, my room is a scattered with piles of clothes I'm too lazy to hang up, and all I want to do is just throw on something sleeveless and a pair of sandals. So at this point, I'm just grabbing the first dress I can find in hopes that I haven't worn it on the blog in the past week or two, throwing a skirt on over it if I feel like it, and slipping on a pair of sandals or flats. If it works, it works. One of these days I'll finally sell all of the clothes I need to get rid of and I'll buy more things I'm not tired of, but for now, an easy summer ensemble like this gets the job done. This skirt has turned out to be one of my favorite pieces, and I honestly didn't think I'd get as much wear out of it as I have when I thrifted it this past spring. It works perfectly with these peach braided Modcloth sandals, which have become the star of my wardrobe this summer. Understandably, of course.
Things have kind of slowed down that past few days, which I'm happy about. The past couple of days have just included a quick trip to Venice to meet with my boss, working on my internship and various projects, skyping with my friend Aaron, and spending some time with sister-in-law in nephew. I feel pretty strange right now because school is starting up, and I'm seeing posts on social media and getting texts from my friends who have yet to graduate. It's weird not going back to Illinois for the first time in four years, and it's especially weird seeing the newspaper that I worked for go on without me. It's pretty bitter sweet, so I'm trying to look on the bright side and enjoy California life to avoid being sad. I also just remind myself that I never have to do homework or take a test again. See? Bright side.
I really need to get another pop culture post up since I've watched/listened to so much since the last one. It's really just been a bunch of podcasts for some reason, but I obviously need to ramble about them for a while in hopes that someone will care. Let's hope that I'll make that happen next week.
