Summer casual

Hi friends! Summer is hectic! I always feel guilty about not posting for a few days, but man, I feel like everything is happening all at once right now. Plans with friends, lots of shows, collaborations, wedding planning, work, life in general. Summer is just always a busy time. As much as I love it, I'm definitely ready for things to slow down a bit. Besides one of my best friends getting married this month, we have a couple of free weekends off and I'm so excited!

Well, I turned 29 on the 29th! It was my golden birthday. I was just telling my best friend, Jen, today that I really want to focus on making this last year of twenties a really good one. I definitely learned a lot in this decade, that's for sure. I made some mistakes, but I also made some really great decisions. Like deciding to go to art college, graduate with my bachelor's degree, and land an amazing career. I kept some of my greatest friendships, lost a few friends, but also gained a lot of lifelong friends, especially in just these past couple of years. And I met, fell in love with and got engaged to Eric, and am joining one of the best families I've ever known. It's been an insane ride, but I'm excited to spend this last year growing up a bit more and getting ready to move into this next decade of life. It's exciting!

Otherwise, it has just been hot here! I don't know about you guys, but my pasty Michigan skin cannot handle these 90+ temperatures! I've been wearing as many simple and easy dresses as possible with strappy sandals. My style always tends to be a bit more casual in the summer, but definitely more so this week than any other week. It's been a scorcher! Well, have a great weekend guys!
