it's a little wild and a little strange

it's a little wild and a little strange

I know it's a little soon to be bitching about "being tired of summer" and I know I'm going to regret it, but dare I say I'm missing dark colors and sparkle? This was my best attempt at making said trends work on a hot muggy day for a good friend's birthday bbq. Much time was spent reminiscing about 90s Nickelodeon shows. Pop quiz: can you finish this line? Camp Anawanna, we hold you in our hearts, and when we think about you...

Topshop dress (old, but love this sparkly one in black and this more classic one)
vintage belt (similar here)
Hermès and Amrita Singh bangles (similar here)
Zara sandals
KMRii bag (old, but I always have eyes for the Diego)

I loooove this dress. I'm tired of summer, too. I'll say it. I'm ready for sweaters and cool mornings.

Johanna said...

Feeling totally nostalgic over your belt. My mom had one like that growing up. So cute!

LOVE this outfit!! That dress is gorgeous, and the belt!!
Ahhh, good old 90s Nickelodeon!
"this thing, it came apart."
That wasn't one of my favorites though, haha, I was more of a Doug, Legends of the Hidden Temple...etc. girl

I'm so ready for Summer to get the eff outta here. Ugh. Fall Season, take me away!

Meanwhile, lovelovelove the dress. And, yeah, I'm more of a Disney fan. "Even Stevens", "That's So Raven", "Suite Life of Zack and Cody". No shame in my game. :o)

Camp Anawana, we hold you in our hearts.
And when we think about you -- it makes me want to fart!!
It's "I hope we never part," now get it right or pay the price!
Now, we will share a lifetime of the fondest memories.
By the Lake of Anawana, set in the old pine trees.
Camp Anawana, we hold you in our hearts.
And when we think about you -- this thing, it came apart.
Think Anawana, speak Anawana, live Anawana, UGH!

Clearly I loved that show :)

"this thing came apart" is what jumps into my mind....

I think that dress is perfect for summer, I mean, if it were cold now you'd have to hide it under layers of jackets and tights!

isn't it it makes me wanna fart? ;) hahaha! Awe, I miss old cartoons... I just want to rewatch the first generation of Pokemon and Sailor Moon and all those fun shows. Guess it'd be a good way to beat the heat!

That dress is so amaaaazing! It's so sparkly and seems so very nostalgic, actually. Was that intentional?

Blue Dog Belle said...

I'm with you girl. Ready for fall. Football. scarves, sweaters, warm drinks. It sounds wonderful right about now.

xo, Emily

Lindsey said...

Got to love the Camp Anawanna song... Oh childhood memories! Love that dress on you and I agree about wanting to incorporate more dark colors back into my wardrobe even if it is summer!

Nooooo please don't say that about the summer to a Brit, E..... we're only just about having the summer start!! Send the sun over here, please - we want more ;))

Beautiful dress, love it! <3
have a great sunday!

Kate said...

I definitely know what you mean, I'm by no means wishing away summer, but I definitely find myself being drawn to rich burgundy hues & thoughts of boots & such! This outfit is the perfect compromise - dark & sparkly but still totally summer appropriate! You look lovely!
