Did you know that yesterday was the longest day of the year? Always neat and one that reminds me of our wedding anniversary. Our big day is actually tomorrow on the 23rd, but when the longest day of the year comes ’round, I’m reminded of a long warm summer evening, a sweet serenade atop a deck adorned with globe lights, and a happy reception in the rolling hills of Santa Cruz.
Alas, Monday I was out with a mean case of food poisoning (the can’t-get-out-of-bed type – I’ll save you the gory details) but I think I’m finally better. And just in time for the 4th anniversary.
But before that day arrives, a quick splash of summer in the form of two hot-weather outfits.
This billowy white top would look great over ruched grey shorts (either loose and airy or tucked in for a form-fitting feel). You can’t go wrong with casual but bright jewelry and a pair of Ray Bans, and I’m really loving this 7 Chi hobo bag that would hold an entire day’s worth of errand running gear (you have plenty with a baby in tow). Plus, cute comfortable sandals? So says LifeStride.
My favorite go-to staple is a summer dress and this buttoned version is one that I know Maryam would approve of. A bit of contrasting color in the jewelry and bag balances the look out.
