Of Waves

I got this crop top from our last clothing swap and while it's basically a full length top on me, I love it. It's perfect for the summer. I've been on the hunt for a longer basic black skirt that I can wear frequently. I was thrilled when I found this one thrifting. Total score.

I sprained my big toe and let me tell you, it's some unreal pain. But hey, at least I still have pretty clothes to make me feel better.

Last weekend, my boyfriend's mother gave me tickets to see the Avett Brothers in Toledo. While I'm not a huge fan of their newer records, they'll always be one of my all-time fav bands. It was also my sisters first time seeing them so it was an experience.

So sharp

I thrifted this dress a couple weeks ago and I'm so in love! It's so flattering and comfortable. It's not necessarily the best dress for summer, but it'll definitely get a lot of use as fall approaches. I feel very lucky that the thrift store closest to me has dollar days, fifty cent days, and half-off every Friday night. I don't always take advantage of them, but whenever I do, I am never let down.

A couple weekends ago, my friend and I headed to Columbus to see Jenny Lewis' new band "Nice As Fuck". Before the show I had never heard the band as they had no released music. It was a ridiculously fun surprise to hear them. Jenny Lewis has always been one of my favorite singers and NAF is wonderful. They're an all girl band and they play in the crowd for a truly lovely and intimate experience. Their record is out now though, so you better go listen.

Just one of the guys

I'm probably one of the last people to be enthused about sports, but there's something exciting about Cleveland sports and especially basketball. Last night, I decided to tune in for the NBA Finals. My reasoning simply that I wanted to watch history happen and you know what? It did. Cleveland is the city that almost always wins. So, it feels nice to have witnessed the first championship win in fifty-two years. We deserved this! The vibe in the city is that of unbearable happiness and community -- which is something Ohio needs. Especially considering in a few short weeks the RNC will be invading this place. It's a real nice time to be in Ohio and that's not something that's felt often.

It's officially summer and well, the heat is something else. Some days, the fact that I manage to leave the air conditioned bedroom with make-up on is a miracle. This outfit is composed of two older thrifted items that I can't get enough of. I love a good mixed print and there's just something about florals an stripes, ya' know?

You got the look

Ohio crossed over from "freezing" to "too hot to function". I somehow always forget how quickly the seasons switch and well, I've been keepin' it simple. Thin cotton dresses, sandals, and copious amounts of sunscreen are my go-to these days. This dress is in heavy rotation because I can wear it with any accessories and change it up. Plus it's incredibly flattering. So, win/win.

I spent the weekend perfecting cold brew, taking my friend out for her birthday, and seeing some cool bands at a cool local space. I also got to spend some quality time with my niece and nephew. There's a quickness of summer that I've always enjoyed.
