The title of this blog post not only states my melancholy feelings towards the changing seasons, but also my absolute OBSESSION with Lana Del Rey’s Summertime Sadness. I would be lying if I told you I didn’t have this song on repeat for the past month in a half orrrr that I blast it while driving and sing at the top of my lungs. Yeah, it’s definitely a thing, guys. Lana’s voice is eerily beautiful and the lyrics are fantastic…
“I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark, in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive”
Case in point.
Anywayssss, I wore this outfit in Hawaii back in March, but for some reason none of the pictures turned out. It was pretty depressing, but luckily, it was the perfect outfit for date night with the boy and allowed for photo op number 2.
When I saw these shorts at Hope’s, I became obsessed and went to order them immediately, when of course, they were completely sold out. I was devastated. Is that not one of the worst feelings everrrrr, guys? I started stalking the Hope’s website hoping for a re-stock, but once they re-stocked they sold out of my size in minutes. It was at that moment that I knew I needed to step up my game. I was at work when I received the email announcing a final re-stock and knew this was my last chance. I set my alarm and waited, refreshing the Hope’s website repeatedly, until I alas, they put them up and I snagged a pair in my size. Score!
The pictures don’t do these shorts justice, as they are a bright, vibrant orange. I paired it with a sheer tank, black bandeau, nude wedges (yeah….I wear these WAY too much!), and a turquoise necklace for a little pop of color.
Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd and I’m milking whats left of summer for as long as I can.
The only picture from Hawaii of this outfit that turned out. My sister and I sure make cute faces…
