Summer Skirt

Top: Gap // Skirt: Thrifted // Belt: Ross // Shoes, Earrings: Nordstrom's Rack

I can hardly believe that we are already in mid august. The Mr. and I have some solid time off in the next week or so and we are looking forward to taking advantage of some of these summer days--I plan to wear long loose skirts so that I can assume the position of criss-cross-applesauce for every moment of them. Criss-cross-applesauce reminds me of a time when I was five, and my bestfriend and I would pick berries and crush them on the cement sidewalk outside my house, then we'd pour sugar on them, and call it jam. Best part? I'm pretty sure we would gobble it up afterward over toast. Do you think I should try the same technique this year? Or Maybe I should just keep the cooking indoors and sanitary.

Share your dose of lovely: What is your favorite summer recipe? [and if you're feeling nice enough, share it!]

  1. Fresh cut watermelon with lime squeezed over it. Delightful. Once you try it you'll never go back.

  2. have I converted you to the fun bun?

  3. Izzy! That's where all the sugar went! You look "lovely" -- you are such a beautiful girl and have a great blog. I check it every day I can... I can't check it when i'm under the water (we haven't figured out how to do that on submarines yet!). I love the photos -- Johnny does such a good job!

  4. Such pretty pictures, I love that skirt!

  5. Blueberries for breakfast! I put them in a bowl and pour some sugar and vanilla extract over them, then set it in the freezer overnight. The next morning, pour milk over them, and the sugar sticks to the blueberries! It's basically magic. And deliciousness.

  6. the photos look great! did you use the new camera? :)

  7. Guys thank you so much for the sweet comments!

    that watermelon and lime recipe sounds too good! & I think I am going to have to go try the blueberry recipe tomorrow morning, yum yum yum!
