What I'm Wearing: Dove gray dress

Dress: Gap, on sale
Shoes: Modcloth
Scarf: I made it from AMH voile
Earrings: Anthropologie

I just haven't been inspired to dress fancily lately. I chalk this up to several factors, the first being: heat. It's hard to get excited about clothes when all you want to do is skip naked through sprinklers. Also, there's none of the stockings-and-cardigans fun of autumn and winter. Thinking ahead to those seasons, I get a tingly little thrill. Stockings, mmmm. It's so hard to wait.

My summer so far has been a blur of concerts, camping, music festivals, and entertaining. It's slowing down now. It was nice to notice small details on my drive to work this morning: hazy blue chicory and Queen Anne's lace along the road. It's mid-July. How did that happen so fast?

I feel I might actually have a few weeks to catch my breath before launching into end-of-summer canning and freezing. That's a good feeling.
