In the summertime, skinny jeans suddenly feel like a sticky wet suit impregnated with your own sweat, sweaters make you want to rip holes in the underarm area, the slightest breeze feels like heaven, and the sun rays continually blind you with piercing intensity. You just want to wear something that doesn’t touch your body, something that floats. The best and worst thing about hot summer temperatures is that you can get away with, and often must, wear next to nothing. Showing more skin generally makes me feel uncomfortable, however, I’ve found a solution, and it’s really quite simple: the t-shirt dress.
Today I’m bringing you a proper outfit of the day, or tenue du jour in French. I was on a wee job hunt today, so I thought this comfy but elegant maxi would be just the right balance. I love the job I have now, and I’d really like to keep it, but I need some more income to throw in a savings account! If I want to move to France next January (oops! spoiler alert!) then I gotta start saving! Plus, I want to fill up my time, and a second job would be a great way to do that.
In about an hour, I’m gonna venture out to a French-speaking meetup, so hopefully others will be there and I can pratiquer mon Français.
It’s only two weeks into summer vacation and I’m already going crazy with free time. And I don’t mean crazy in the good sense. I was supposed to take a French conversation course this summer, but it was cancelled last minute unfortunately. So, with my 15-hour-a-week job, and nothing else on my plate, I’ve had a lot of time to lounge in bed…and lounge in bed some more.
I used to enjoy doing nothing! But I’m so eager for the future to get here that long, empty days really annoy me. But more on that future in a later post!
Just thought I’d keep this post simple, and share with you some photos I took of this lovely floral arrangement my mother threw together from the left-over flowers of a bouquet. The colors are so bright, they cheered me right up!
