Fashion Over Reason: Summer On the Brain

Summer On the Brain


Sumer on the brain, palm trees, LA, Los Angeles California

It's no secret that it's been a tough winter, here in the Northeast. And while it's seasonably normal to experience warm-weather withdrawal once the equinox hits and all we have are April showers, it seems to be, well, a lot more of a sensitive matter than usual. Being excited for winter to end has been the subject trending most among everyone I know since January, yet Mother Nature appears to be punishing us. I can just picture her, wherever she hangs her hat, grinning in utter satisfaction as she inflicts her wrath on us suffering mere mortals. Spring's extremely shy nature has made most people want to dig a hole and go lie in it until at least Memorial Day... In the meantime, I will proceed with my sulking and keep complaining about the chill in the air, the horrible climate change and how I just cannot contain my excitement for summer to finally arrive. Below is a depiction of the type of outfit I anticipate wearing.


Joie summer dress, Totême rope sandals, Giles and Brother earrings, MAC Cosmetics nail polish in Morange, NARS Cosmetics tinted moisturizer, Ray-Ban aviators

I feel you girl! It's like the temperature increases by a degree each day then they tell us it is going to snow again. THE MADNESS MUST STOP. On the bright side, I did see the newest trend emerging under winter coats today on my morning run through Boston. Spring is coming! (it's just a month late) :) Lovely post my dear. xx

I totally have to agree with you in the unpredictable weather and the winter that drags on longer than usual this year. Now rain...yuck!! I feel that Spring is going to be super short this year. We may jump from winter to the summer. Your picks make me want to pack a bag and head to the beach.
