Outfit: Bringing It All Back Home

DSC_0070This is an outfit I wore once while I was in Sarasota, and since I’m missing Florida so much, I wanted to at least wear something that reminded me of the good times I had down there.  Things in Illinois have been a little stressful lately, and it’s really got me wishing for some extra downtime.



Not that there haven’t been fun things to do here at home.  Taking Moxie for a walk has never been such a treat–everything is green, green, green and the air is perfumed with all kinds of wonderful scents.  And there have been so many get-togethers with friends and family, from weddings to movie nights.

Really, I think I’m just missing those old summer vacations, even though I’ve been working through the summer for about a decade.  I miss not having responsibilities and being able to eat as much ice cream as I want without consequences.  I want to spend my days in swimsuits and my nights at parties.  I want to spend hours drinking in books.  I want to ride my bike until my legs hurt.  I don’t want to worry about getting enough sleep before work, and I certainly don’t want to spend eight hours at my desk every day.

I want to be a kid again.
