This gorgeous combination, for one, reminds me of the flowiness of the ocean meeting the camel-hued sands. The color scheme and exposed shoulder transports me at once to a sunny beachside town, where the wind whips heavily through your hair and clothing. I'm probably eating ice cream in this town. Obviously.
What are your favorite parts of summer? Though the hot hot heat might be overwhelming, sometimes I like the gleam of sweat on everybody's brow. Ice cream may melt, but it cools you as it drips down your fingers and dissolves in your mouth. Popsicles especially so.
I love the watermelon and the lemonade, the backyard pool parties with floaties of all different shapes and functions. There's usually barbecue, and fireworks, and slow, easy conversation that flows late into the night, until even the last of the fireflies burn out and retreat into their twilight abodes.
Summer fashion, too! Pastels and florals, dramatic cuts designed to cool off and show some skin, an easy fluidity to the fabric so that the wearer can actually, y'know, breathe. Silks and linens and eyelet cottons parade through the sun-drenched asphalt streets, never failing to turn my head as they walk by.
In my head, in my dreams, Summer always reigns supreme, responsibilities and adulthood be damned!
