Summer goes too quickly. Always. And it's August and I feel like it should be July. So in the spirit of mindfulness I notice the anxiety that a quickly fading summer brings and I don't really want to do anything with it except go to the lake and float. That should calm my anxious heart.
And cute skirts help. Especially vintage skirts that twirl and have deep pockets. Note to all clothing designers out there: flowy skirts need pockets.
I found this beautiful vintage Banana Republic skirt at Salvation Army a few weeks ago. In the 80s, Banana Republic used to have this safari, expeditiony-ish (that's not a word, but I don't care) clothing line. If you don't know the history of Banana Republic, here is the story.
Enlightenment to go along with my mindfulness.
Enjoy every last minute of this glorious summer, friends. I am hoping to fill mine with family, friends, fun, laughter, rest, relaxation, good books, good food, good music, bonfires, star gazing, long walks, floating in the lake, and twirly skirts.
