Since the arrival of summer is something weâ€™re all anxiously awaiting and unsure of based on the current weather all over the country, I started thinking about the season and why I love it so much.
If I close my eyes and say the word over and over again the first memories that pop into my head are of days spent by the pool back in Texas. My dad on the grill cooking his delicious cheeseburgers, wet hair and old school sandals, and the smell of sunscreen. Those were the days. It was and probably will always be my favorite season of the year because of the obvious: I love being hot and was so happy to not be in school.
These days our summer days are similar but definitely more adult-like and hopefully include a glass of rose or a tasty lemonade cocktail. I still look for pieces that I can wear over a suit and off to dinner, bags that can carry my sunblock and a towel, and sandals that are cute but also comfortable.
TevasÂ take me back in time to vacations when I was younger because they were great to wear on boats and on the beach. With a cute little DIY kit from Honestly WTF and a color and style that are comfortable and also stylish, you can turn your poolside sandals into a pair that you can wear with a dress or a cute pair of shorts.
