Indian Summer

Monday, November 21, 2011

This morning I woke up to the faint strains of "We Owned the Night" by Lady Antebellum echoing out of my iHome. I stepped out of bed as if I were cast in a music video and flung my curtains open in anticipation of morning sunshine...

Well, the latter didn't happen exactly as imagined. Today it's foggy: typical November weather that chills you right to the bone. In respect to the arctic temperatures, I decided to heat things up in my post today and reflect on the beauty of summertime. I found these pictures taken late this summer that I never posted. I was about to go to the local farmer's market to pick up some fresh peaches from the Georgia farmer and some pastries from the French pastry chef. I was feeling a little hippie that day and reflected elements from the 70's in the shape of my vintage Ray-Bans, the draped material in my Lizard Thicket top, and the waistline of my denim shorts. Summer is far away in both directions, but the atmosphere is still attainable if you close your eyes, picture the relaxation, the salt water, the hum of mosquitoes, and the dewy humidity penetrating the strong-hold hairspray used that morning.
