A Summer Day

So today, it's chilly and gloomy outside. I guess that makes the Monday blues seem more appropriate. Yesterday, however, we had warm sunshine and blue skies with a slight breeze. And it felt like summer.

Summer is by far my favorite season. I grew up in a beach town in Southern California, so how could it not be? Part of me just wanted to throw on a bathing suit all weekend and frolic around the city. Since I'm not currently living in a beach town though, that didn't really seem appropriate...

So I opted for shorts. Orange shorts. Because orange kind of looks like the sun. And I don't have yellow shorts. Worked out perfectly though because I ordered a smoothie while we were wandering around the town, and it was orange.

Speaking of matching food and clothes, does anyone else do this intentionally? Because I definitely wear red when I'm eating pasta sauce. I realize a stain is a stain, but for some reason it makes me worry less.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Since summer is on my mind...anyone have any amazing summer plans this year?
