Person vs. nature

White blouse c/o Lovely Wholesale / Floral shorts from Persunmall / Green bag from Persunmall / Initials ring from Onecklace

Summer is finally here and I am basking in its glory! Mostly. When it comes to being outdoorsy, I'm more of a 'sit at a restaurant by an open window' kind of person. And even then, I might complain if the sun is beating directly on me. So for me to go on a hike through a dirt road trail, it's a big deal. Long story short, the worst part of hiking is the point where I realize that I have to turn back and walk the distance again, but being absolutely exhausted at this point.

The worst thing about summer for me though, is the mosquitoes. For some reason, I tend to swell up from mosquito bites. Last summer, I ended up limping across my graduation stage because my ankle had swelled up to the point where I couldn't walk properly. I don't know why I attract freakishly strong mosquitoes, but I've already been bitten this summer by a mosquito that stabbed through my sweater. Yes, you heard me right. I mean, way to go for persevering, but dear mosquito, please persevere away from me next time.

  1. Ah, those pesky mosquitos! For me, it's hayfever so I can't enjoy summer as much as I'd like to. You look really lovely here, those photos are so dreamy! x

  2. I'm with you on the "sit in a restaurant close to an open window" feeling. I sizzle like a piece of bacon in the sun, I like summer but more of a fall girl! Nice post.

  4. Girl, we are so alike! I'd rather much soak up nature by enjoying a view through a restaurant window (and delicious food) However, sometimes, I strangely enjoy hiking and being outdoors (though I will probably *never* become accustomed to camping!) For me, the worst part about the hike is getting there! Once you reach your destination and head back, it usually goes by faster! But mosquitos? No thanks!

    Loving your sweet and summery outfit too! The lighting is beautiful! :-)

  6. Nice blouse and lovely shorts. Wonderful sandals and sunglasses. Pretty face, smile, and hairstyle as well. Also, please be careful dealing with nature. Sorry those pesky mosquitoes decide to want to screw around with you. You may need some insect repellent or something.

    Anyhow, lovely outfit and great looks!

  36. I love summer but I hate mosquitos too! I understand you, but that's awful that they bite you even through your sweater! You can buy something like a cream and I've read somewhere recently that if you take Vitamine B (I'm not sure) that will keep them away. Try this! Very nice and cute shorts!
