Watermelon and Dreamsicles

0808151525h-ANIMATION

How does summer speak to you? Is it in the laughter heard at pool parties, the glow radiating from a firefly (if you’re from the South), the crackling of a campfire?

        Summer has been bottled up into two treats for me: watermelon, and dreamsicles. Since childhood, I look forward to that time when you see watermelons in the farmers market, coming not from a faraway tropical locale, but from your neighboring town (or even a generous neighbor). Ok, you can find dreamsicles anytime of the year (and, ok, fine, watermelon too). But even as an adult, I only allow myself these indulgences during the summer, in order to preserve their essence as the warmest season’s offerings.

With the sweetness of the fruit and popsicle in mind, I wore an outfit this weekend combining their warm hues. While eating a slice of watermelon, of course.

Please excuse (or enjoy a laugh at) my funny faces. I may feel confident in my style, but I’m still working on those modeling skills.

Also, an honorable mention to the side braid: I’m loving this hairstyle for the summer. Easy, effortless, and worn well with fedoras, beach hats, and bike helmets.
