We took these photos this afternoon in the seconds before giant summer raindrops started to fall. It's supposed to thunder by nightfall but for now, giant drops have given the city the smell of a summer rain. You all know that cool, fresh smell that floats over everything. Mmm.
I thought it was kind of bizarre to wear the color yellow, and ruffled yellow at that, underneath an impending cloud of giant raindrops. But perhaps it was fitting. I don't think I've ever worn yellow. It just simply isn't a color that really pale, freckled, brunettes often wear. But I couldn't really resist this dress. It seemed to epitomize casual summers spent river-side. Light and floaty and floral, it also feels like a tropical vacation dress. To be paired with smooth blue seas and white sand (and probably sunburns).
And I am so in need of a real vacation, spent somewhere that's not here, for weeks. Today at work someone said the word "Mexico" and everyone just moaned a bit, dreaming of clear water and beaches. I think it may have just been the 3:30 p.m. slump where everyone is brainstorming what cocktails they're making when they get home... but a vacation sure does sound nice. Do you have summer plans? I am basically going to be house-bound except for a potential work trip (NOT remotely vacation-like) in the next few weeks. Ugh.
