Why In the Night Sky Are the Lights Hung?

IMG_6947edit


Hello there! So, I took a bit of a break from the blog world for a little while there (it feels like a longer amount of time than it actually was!). After the semester ended I just wanted to relax. I had spent so much time glued to my computer the last few weeks that I really needed a break. I'm back now, though, and with too many photos (and posts to catch up on!). Today is one of those days that I love. It starts out really slow, and boring, but develops into a fun day. I woke up late this morning (I've permitted late sleeping just for this first weekend of summer) to dark, rainy weather, which I actually love. At about 3 in the afternoon I started to pout about my lack of doing anything, so Zak suggested we take a drive over to this wonderful park a little ways from my house. It's a huge park (bigger than central park!) and so much fun to explore. One of my favorite areas is the playground because, being the five year old that I am, I love playing around on the slides and the swings (especially the swings). It's not often that I have a wide variety of photo locations available to me, which I'm sure you've noticed by all of the pictures on my porch, so I got a bit overwhelmed and took took too many pictures!

It was surprisingly hot and humid today so, even though I brought a sweater to the park, I immediately put it away. This outfit is fairly simple and monochrome mostly because my rain boots are so ridiculous and loud. I love wearing them, but it's so hard to plan an outfit around that bright colorful pattern!

Top: H&M
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Boots: DSW, I think?

  3. Cute wellies! I was thinking about wearing my rain boots today but it clashed with my outfit... :(

    Your hair looks really nice. My hair becomes all weird in the rain/humidity/dew.

  11. Haha! I was exactly the same way when Robert was in town. Because he has a car (I live in the city and walk/public transit everywhere) and we cruised around the suburbs quite a bit, which opened up SO MANY POSSIBILITIES. I might go crazy this summer, when he's home for good.

    Is that one of the tops from H&M's conscious collection? So much of that is so breezy and pretty. Love the soft colors + loud rainboots :D
