Summer is here! Wait, it never left.

Summer has always been my favorite season, but now I live in Florida, and summer is the only season. Not only that but, summers in Florida are rainy. Yeah, this pretty much sums it up:


But as strange as it sounds, this year, I’m rather enjoying the summer weather. There is something about the sunshine filtering through the rain that just reflects my current mood.

Despite the rain, this is still my favorite time of year. July is my favorite month, and not because Harry Potter and I have our birthdays. Independence Day has always been my favorite holiday.

In fact, real quick,

Three Ways Independence Day is Awesome

1. There’s a BBQ. Grilled meats and corn, guacamole, watermelon, casual socializing, checkered tablecloths, American spirit.
2. There’s fireworks. Not only are sparklers hands down the best thing ever, but sparklers without wearing a sweater are even better.
3. There’s fireflies. And not just fireflies, but frogs and birds add their ambience to the sunset. Okay, I guess that one’s more a general summer thing.

But anyway.

Since the rest of the country has joined in on the forever Florida weather, I thought I’d share a fun outfit!


I recently wore this to have a casual dinner date with my husband. Heels are
rare for me right now because my son is still a very chaseable tot, so any night out without the little ones is a night for my heels to go out too!

Necklace- Bealle’s Outlet
Shirt- Walmart (beautiful similar option here)
Shorts- Macy’s (similar here)
Shoes- local boutique (no longer available, but see them here up close and personal. So. Beautiful.)

Oh, and these nails!


I am totally obsessed with this color but have no idea what it’s called! I just can’t remember the name of it and when I went back to the salon I couldn’t find it on the rack. So frustrating. If you have any ideas please, please fill me in.

What’s your favorite thing about summer?  Anyone else have to temporarily retire their heels for the toddler years? What about Independence Day? Anyone else as obsessed with it as I am?

  1. It is a fun color, isn’t it? I thought it was rather bold when I saw it at the salon, but looking at it made me happy, so I went for it! Thanks for commenting, and for the gratefulness series on your blog. Such a great idea, I’m going to adopt it.
