I packed lightly for the first time in my life (well, only considering clothing--my bag still was a few pounds over the limit for flying!) this summer break in an effort to perhaps rediscover what I have in the back of my closet here in Hawaii and really learn how to live on just a few pieces instead of my entire wardrobe, which I left in California. It's been a bit of a struggle, but fun all the same, as there are some great pieces in there I've completely forgotten about--like this beautiful skirt I thrifted two summers ago with the cutest ladylike pattern. I felt incredibly posh wearing it!
This past Saturday was my darling Rachael's high school graduation, so I decided to get all dolled up for the occasion. I'm trying to find more excuses to really dress myself up over summer, as that tends to brighten my mood for the day, and I am not usually very chipper during summer holiday home (due to many factors, primarily my long distance relationship and the humidity!). Thankfully, I've already noticed the weeks seem to be flying by unlike last year. I think the difference is having many things planned to look forward to spread all over the break. Hopefully I won't run out of outfits for those events!
Stay sweet ♡
