Dress for the seasons, or don't

I've been stuck in this weird limbo state lately. I'm not ready for summer to end, and at the same time I'm altogether ready for fall to begin. It's a give and take. I love the warmth of summer nights and the ever-present freedom of my days. But, I'm also ready for things like dark nails, leaves candles, and 8-tracks playlists chalk full of Ed Sheeran. 

As you can see, this indecision is beginning to translate into wardrobe. I live in Texas where August is clearly too early for a leather jacket. But do I let such dilemmas stop me? Heck no! No matter what anyone else may say, getting dressed is about owning who you are and what you want. Do it for you and for the sake of your own happiness.

I try to get duckbumps every single day. Now you may call them goosebumps (and for the purpose of this post, I'll refer to them as goosebumps). But regardless of the term, the idea remains. I try to get them - every. single. day.

I'm sure you've seen the SS for eLUXE tees floating around Instagram and Twitter. They're just too fun to miss! When my dear friend Steph told me that she was the one behind these beautiful tees, I knew I had to have one. I'm already a big fan of her wildly successful print shop, with tons up around my house.  Her approach to design is both light-hearted and intentional, which definitely isn't something that you see every day. More than that, Steph's an all-around nice girl with a huge heart for people. Her designs are no different. I love this "You can sit with us" tee because it serves as a public "leg-up" for all the nice girls in the world. And you know what? It's nice to be nice!

Happy Monday, sweet friends!
