Heya! Welcome to Thursday, haha. Can you believe August is already half over?? Honestly, this summer hasn't really felt like summer much. It hasn't been super hot and it's rained a ton, which for Colorado is rare. I took these photos two months ago at my (former) childhood home in PA. I didn't have a great camera on me and the lighting was iffy so they're not perfect photos (my apologies), but this look represents a lot of my go-to outfits this summer. It's no secret that I prefer skirts and dresses, especially in the summer but it's been kind of chilly here at times so I've worn a fair amount of pants. I got these jeans from the Gap in PA two months ago and they've been great knock around pants. They're a little big, but not too big so they're perfect for keeping it casual. I've decided I'm going to embrace pants more this winter than I did last winter, but I'll elaborate on that more when the time gets closer.
For when I do wear pants, I do tend to spruce them up with heels! Haha, that's my definition of going casual I suppose. I paired this look with a concert tee shirt that I got from seeing Nada Surf. I saw them in 2012 and they've written some of my all-time favorite songs with my all-time favorite lyrics. Truth...I didn't love them in concert and that bummed me out. But my really close friend who I went with loved them and said I was crazy. Different folks, different strokes friends!
Anyway, I'm considering using song titles as blog post titles as often as possible. Music is (obviously) a huge part of my life and it'll help cement the marriage about what my new url will be (when I finally switch it). "Always Love" is the name of a Nada Surf song and the lyrics that I love the most from it are:
"Always love. Hate will get you every time. Always love. Don't wait til the finish line."
Simple, but powerful. And damn good advice. The song is catchy (I uploaded the video at the end of the post if you want to hear it). Another song with lyrics that I love are from "Concrete Bed" and they are:
"To find someone you love, you gotta be someone you love."
Damn those boys in Nada Surf are wise!
