Summertime, in a Retro Haze

I’m sitting in the middle of a thunderstorm in Seattle, contemplating the true meaning of “summer.” For Seattle kids, summer is this weird, spring-like, unpredictable series of months that don’t really have any other correlation outside of being consecutive.

PS – Closing your eyes and saying “Summersummersummersummersummer” and imagining beautiful, summer-y accessories does not make it warmer or less raining outside.

But here’s where my head was…

  • The color yellow has always been synonymous to summer. It’s the color of sunshine after all. Add a touch of yellow in your outfit, and it immediately turns your damp Seattle mood to a more sunshiny California one, right?
