One of the reasons ‘Snowflakes’ is part of the title of this blog is because I hate dressing for the summer. I think for a while I just couldn’t find my groove. I love layers, structure, thick fabrics, chunky knits – all items that are in another closet or under my bed during the months of sweltering heat. But this year I resolved to not wish months away – I mean I’m basically 40 (… ok 28 but still..). So I am making a conscious effort to enjoy the ‘now’ and that includes the heat. These metallic shorts make me kind of excited about it. I feel like they are ‘grown up’ shorts haha – and a break away from the STILL SO POPULAR nike shorts.
While David and I were eating after church yesterday a group of 10 college girls walked into the restaurant all in Nike shorts. Maybe it’s just me but I loved the short shiny umbros so much more. Becca Tilley wore them for an episode of the bachelor and I loved her for it. Get it girl.. speaking of.. tonights the finale!! What’s your pick? I’m thinking she should go with Nick just based on what she’s been through because of bringing him on. We shall see…
I’m currently at the airport waiting to board the plane to Miami and then on to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I am so excited to meet the people of these villages. It’s been more than 10 years since I took my only other mission trip and I know this one is going to be amazing. Can’t wait to share all of it.
Have a great start to your week and thanks for reading!
