Belated summer

Blue top from American Apparel / Long vest from Joe Fresh / Brown shorts from Forever 21 / Wood sunglasses from Woodzee

All summer long, I've been complaining about the weather not being summery and hot enough. Now September has finally rolled in and summer temperatures have finally arrived. I spent a day over the long weekend at the beach, which does not actually deserve to be called a beach. Just because it has a patch of gravel and thin sand, doesn't mean it's a beach. I've been craving the outdoors all summer long but once it was out there, I remembered that I hate the humidity, I hate the beating sun, and I hate sweating. So I took a different approach the day after and enjoyed the outdoors during a short walk to a local 50's style restaurant for a strawberry milkshake. Enjoying the outdoors from the comforts of the shaded indoors? Now that's the kind of summer I want.

  1. It's true, this has been such a mild summer, but it wanted to go out with a bang, rather than a whimper, and remind us what summer is. Sure I hate the humidity, but there is something about the heat and sun that just feels so good.

  10. Haha, I feel we always complain about the weather no matter whether it's too hot or too cold! The grass is indeed greener on the other side for many of us :P Nevertheless, you look fantastic in this outfit and this beautiful scenery! Love the khaki shorts and casual yet chic slouchy tee with the vest! Also love the sunnies :)

  19. Ooo nicely done. I love layers, but always have a tough time in summer because it's not layering-friendly. Nice clean color palette as well!

  20. I'm also sad this summer wasn't hot and sunny as usual but I'd probably respond the same as you did if summer started now because I don't like hot weather at all. The outfit is perfect though and I wouldn't mind getting a strawberry milkshake myself :) xx Maja

  23. Sounds like you had a really great day! I don't quite like going to the beach when it is really hot either! I would much rather sunbathe in my garden and then later in the evening go to the beach or a lake to take a cooling swim!
    Anyways, I am really loving this outfit- it just screams summer and hot weather! And how cool are your sunnies? :)

  24. I know, it's crazy! Where I live it's been mostly in the low 80s this summer then all of a sudden last week it hit the mid 90s! But better late than never :) Love the soft pastel colors you're wearing here
