Summer lovin

Loving the summer heat (but not “lovin” how grainy and faded these photos came out, sorry). I haven’t had a chance to wear this dress in ages, because honestly, I don’t ever get a chance to wear anything like this in San Francisco. Being in Southern California and in melt your face off weather, this was the perfect opportunity.

Summer essentials- fresh out of the shower throw your hair in a bun, strappy dress, sandals, minimal makeup (only wearing lipstick, blush, and a little mascara) is all you need for an afternoon of trying to beat the heat and reading books under the shade of a big tree. I didn’t even bother with jewelry, besides the studs I wear in my ears every day.

Fitting in the little poochie dog in the photos is always nice.

I’ll be back in San Francisco in a few days and I’m not sure how I’m going to deal with the fog again! I do wish this dress was a bit longer now, I didn’t bat an eyelash about it when I lived in and wore this in Vegas. But that seems like a lifetime ago (I also would wear leggings as pants, yikes). I’m thinking about adding a few more inches in a contrasting fabric, maybe in fabric type or color, to give it a little chance.
