This isn't an outfit from today, or even from anytime in the past few days. According to my camera, it's from April 11th--the day that I went for a walk and for 3 bug bites in ten minutes, when it suddenly hit eighty degrees without warning. In the interest of trying to post more regularly, and since I hadn't shared this then, here it is now! It's been a summery-kind of warm here, out of nowhere, and some people are actually complaining that it's too warm!
This is a dress that I saw, and even though I knew I wouldn't be wearing it for ages, I bought it on-the-spot. Dotted swiss! Puffy sleeves! Weird little linen details! I had been thinking of it as my Snow White dress, although I don't know why, until I realized it was exactly the sort of thing that really reminded me of the movie in yesterday's post.
But I'm pleased. I'm reliving summer memories from back in the day and relishing the familiar feelings of summer that I don't really know how to articulate. There's something about how the way the windows are open, the way the room is really messy, the way sunscreen smells that all combines to something really specific but also general.
These flowers have long-since died, but that's alright, because there are finally some outside anyway.
I'm really excited for night-time in summer. I think it might just be that I'm nostalgically remembering summers in high school as being a certain way, but I always get excited for it.
