The summer vibe

Over the weekend, I finally unpacked my lightweight shirts, which had been stored in a suitcase at the back of my closet, eagerly awaiting their turn. I love my summer clothes--all airy, silky pieces--because of what they imply: the approaching heat, blazing sunshine, warm days at the beach. To me, summers are full of possibility, excitement, romance. It's still bright and warm when you leave the office, and you feel as if you have so much more time on your hands. You lose all the stiffness and formality of fall and winter, the thick wool sweaters, heavy boots and chunky knits. You slip on a sheer T-shirt and denim shorts, you let your hair dry in the sun. You dance down the street with an iced coffee in one hand, soaking up the sunshine in a flimsy summer dress.

I was feeling the summer vibe this weekend in L.A. So I tugged on a sheer yellow top, took a stroll down Beverly Boulevard, bought an ice cream, and daydreamed about what awaits me this fabulous summer...

Ahh...I'm so jealous. We were back in the low 40s today. Grr...

You always look so cheerful and happy. Wish you lived here (or vice versa). I thought those shoes were Ann D.'s at first--and I was like, wow! I love those. I also love the sunny color of your coat.

Oh thank you! I actually got them because they remind me of the Ann D's shoes, albeit a much more affordable version! :)

Another great outfit! I've never really dared to wear yellow, but you make me want to give it a try! And I'm loving the booties as well. I really wish it would get warmer here as well, but the temps dropped again. Ugh.

Laura said...

Really in love with the shoes!

I'm proud to be one of the first to see that pair of shoes...and in person! I can't wait for summer - but I miss the idea of actually having "summer vacation." Are we really doing Biker Gang Fridays???
