Wish I was back here and could run into those cool waves...

"Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it."
-Russell Baker 

Last night I went to a place called Snowplanet where you can basically ski in a slope sized freezer.
I had an awesome time trying out my new gear, only to wake up this morning to find its a super hot
day. I normally don't deal well with hot weather but the reminder of how much I like the cold means I'm not really up to writing a masterpiece of a post.
The pictures will just have to speak for themselves.

skirt - made by me
tshirt - dotti
glasses - thrifted
hunger games necklace - amazon
bracelets - silk & steel
