A Summer Uniform
I know, every blogger makes at least one post per season about the importance of a summer/winter uniform, but with good reason-- there comes a time (especially in summer) when new outfits are incredibly hard to come by because it's far too hot and uncomfortable or cold and ridiculous to bother with it anymore. My summer uniform has consisted of loose dresses and shorts paired with slip-on flats and tucked-in tops. Simple, but without making me feel like I've given up (which is very important in 100+ degree heat). These oxfords are especially nice and summer-y because they're very good walking shoes, which is particularly useful for when I decide to stop being a hermit and walk the dogs or go downtown.
I seem to be coping with the heat much better than usual, by the way, but I've lost my patience with it and have started really looking forward to fall! It'll be interesting to see fall in Wilmington; I didn't pay attention to it when I lived here before and last year I was in St. Louis, which has the most perfect fall ever. It'll be kind of impossible to beat St. Louis and Tower Grove Park, but since autumn is super short here anyway I'll have to make a conscious effort to appreciate it.
