No Bird Am I To Sing In June

For all of my proclaimed love of summer, I find myself melting under this sweltering heat. Even in the early morning the air feels as heavy as a blanket against your skin. Humidity hangs around our house like a seasonal garland we cannot remove and store in the attic. Why was the fall and winter so windy here on the shore when now everything has gone flat and still? I have taken to hiding away indoors, peering at the world through a window until the sun has dipped below the horizon. Only then does the outdoors seem hospitable again and cautiously I will venture out to wander along the beach or sit on swing sets.

P.S. The lovely people at Mark sent me a couple of classic summer staples. I love these espadrilles with the little black strip in the heel and the fedora is the perfect fit for me.

  3. I love this! The second picture is really great.

    And around this area, the humidity gets really bad. But some days it's just not there. And it's perfect and amazing. (The last two days here have been like that.) I imagine it's the same in VA since it's just two hours north. Just hold out for those days!

  4. I love when you wear dress that feature your gorgeous tattoos!

    And I can relate, the humidity here in toronto is out of this world...

  5. I want to plagarize your copy in this article, because this is exactly how I feel and behave in Michigan's sweltering summers. It's a plague, having seasons.

    I can't wait for Hawaii's predictability.

    How did you withstand the heat in Hawaii? Did you enjoy it?

  7. The back design of the dress is absolutely lovely! It's not so bad yet here in New York, but I'm waiting for the concrete to absorb all the heat and then suffocate us.

  8. Ah, that dress is on sale. Would you mind sharing the length? It looks great on your, but I worry it might be too short for me!

    Thanks,

  21. You write so beautifully - particularly here when you speak about the environment.
    Love your shoes too! I love how the two-tone sole makes an otherwise serious black heavy shoe light and playful :)

  22. Oh Girl!! It's only June too! What is up with the humidity:) Your outfit is too cute too. I love the detail of the back of the dress. Cutouts/straps in the back make the humidity a little more bearable.
