Why do the weekends go by so fast? Lucky for me, I spent the weekend at the beach with my parents and it felt good to relax and soak in the sun. I found myself reminiscing over the summers spent there with my beach friends and how few worries and responsibilities filled my head. Instead, I was most concerned about my tan and the boys of course! I miss those days so much that my heart hurts. I know that sounds silly, but it’s hard growing up and letting go of such great times. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m very much enjoying my life right now, I just miss the carelessness of summer when you’re younger. There’s nothing to worry about and your days are spent bike riding to the pool then to the beach then back to the pool–it’s just simple and perfect. In an effort to make Monday a decent day, I decided to take on this bright floral linen dress from J.Jill. Just by looking at it, it makes you smile. It’s also super comfy and better yet, it has pockets! I’m always torn about which seasons I like dressing for; if you had asked me last year I know I would’ve said fall, but for some reason, I’m loving all of the summer styles this year. Everything is bright, off the shoulder and light-weight. If this cheerful linen dress doesn’t make you smile, then just focus on the upcoming long holiday weekend we have to look forward to! We can get through these responsibilities and all of these Mondays to come!
P.S. Happy Birthday to my amazing little mom who took two weeks worth of outfit photos this weekend–LOVE!
