Sweet Summertime

If these photos don’t make you want to pull on something breezy for a warm, summer night stroll, then I don’t know what will.

Meet my friend Claire! She and two friends live in this adorable house near campus. From the sunflowers to the comfortable porch chairs, where else would you want to spend a lazy summer afternoon? As soon as we picked the dress, I knew it would perfectly capture the carefree sense of summer as August first rolls around.

Thank you to Claire and Shannon for making this happen! Hopefully all of you readers will get a glimpse into the enjoyable evening we had together.

What I See…

Sneakers! From Converses to Nike High tops, this bish is happening. You couldn’t ask for a better trend to be in, like who doesn’t love wearing comfortable footwear?

Here’s what I saw on the street in Paris:

Richmond in the summer has been slightly different than expected. During the school year, once students return from Spring Break, the campus and city turns into a botanical wonderland. Blooming trees of white, pink, and red keep everyone’s heads up as they prepare for the grind of finals. In contrast, the summers in Richmond are just hot. Like an inescapable cloud of humidity that follow you everywhere  you go. It also rains pretty much everyday. I can count on the pounding spouts around 3 pm daily.

So when Anna and I found this street lined with flowering trees and gardens, we stopped right in our tracks. We couldn’t ask for a better hiatus from the rain  and a return to springtime.

My best friend Anna and I decided to explore Maymont park today.  Without much surprise, we got lost on the way. But as with any truly great adventure, we found somewhere just as suiting in the process. With streets lined with pink-flowered trees and a massive tower as a centerpiece, this World War I memorial building was perfect for our chill day in the sun. Here are some pictures of our afternoon!
