SUMMER (NOT SO) TURN UP

Summer | The Alma Chronicle

Summer ’16 turn up? What’s that?

Am I the only one that spent the most anticipated summer ever trying to figure out her life and priorities while everyone else was on a tropical island sipping mojitos and taking to die for Instagram shots? No?

I lived vicariously through some of my faves on Instagram and Snapchat while sitting behind my computer setting deadlines, writing out goals, working towards these goals, watched A different world for the 100th time with my best friend and stuffed my face with junk food.

Good times.

I didn’t realize how much I missed a simple black monochrome outfit till I spent half an hour trying to find the perfect match for a blue shirt. This Zara culottes have been worn down to the last cent, my friends are ready to toss it away and I’m thinking “oh, I just started”. 

How has your summer been?

    I completely feel you about the summer. I wanted to do so much, and I cannot believe that in a few short weeks I’ll be back at the grind and doing school. Ugh. Glad to have stumbled upon your blog!
