Just A Little Summer Check In

Just A Little Summer Check In
Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope everyone is having a lovely day! I for one am enjoying the most of the summer for what it's worth. Besides the fact that it is boiling here in Texas, I'd say that this summer has been one for the books for a variety of reasons!

First things first, I have had my fair share of festivals this summer! If you're apart of the Instagram crew then you will have seen plenty of it via my stories! I could not get enough of the cotton candy, corndogs or fresh lemonade! It was purely delicious!

Another thing I loved trying this summer was riding more of the rides at festivals! Now that I am almost 28 years old I'm not as fond of my body being twirled around on rides like I used to when I was a kiddo BUT now I choose the best 2-3 rides out of the park and I stick with those. I love the Ferris wheel because it's calm and collected and I like to mix it up with two adventurous rides in the end! It's all about that moderation!

Here's a little snap of when I was about to ride one of the craziest rides there was to offer! It went allllll the way up into the sky and swirled around in different directions! I actually loved it a lot more than I thought I would! Ha!

A few other moments I have been loving about summer as well is just being able hanging out with the fam! It's almost back to school season and once that happens we all know that everything and everyone becomes too busy to even be able to sit at the table and eat dinner together! Once the hustle and bustle of August hit it's no longer play time but work time and that summer dynamic of fun fade away for a bit! So, for now, I am savoring every moment for what it's worth and hanging on to the last little bit of that summer fun and freedom!

I find that sometimes summers can last for a very long time and often times it can feel like you repeated July twice but this year I feel as though the summer went by very quickly! Maybe summer isn't as long anymore when you're an adult? Who said growing up would be fun? Ha!

Something else I did this summer was to a bit more freeing with my wardrobe! Honestly, it was waaay too hot to overdress and comfortability was a major key for me! I lived in rompers, overalls, and dresses and I was not mad about it! Sometimes you just need something to throw on to get out of the door for the day! I created a little capsule wardrobe for the summer and so far it has been working out pretty well! I didn't have to spend so much money on clothes this summer and I am proud of myself for that! I really tried to focus on pieces that I KNOW I would wear and not just throw in my closet for one-time use! I did not want to be wasteful and I can honestly say I stuck to the plan of repeating my outfits on several occasions!

Anyways, that's pretty much all that I have been up to so far this summer. I personally wanted to take summer 2018 and enjoy myself. Sometimes I feel like as an adult we forget to enjoy the simple things in life and that can create unnecessary stress. I wanted to feel free and fun this summer and that's exactly what I was able to do! I know that I have to get back to serious business in a bit but for now, you can catch me soaking up the sun with a snow cone in one hand and creating those summer memories only one would dream of.

Best,
Sha'Carey
