restless youth











Thrifted top, gifted necklace, Minnentonka shoes, DIY shorts, belt with pouch from Urban Outfitters, Blackberry Bold 9780 with random green pouch, Rayban Wayfarers.

Silly me thought that the summer months would bring a break from the hectic school months. Unfortunately, my level of busyness has stayed pretty much the same. It feels like every day in the week is jam packed full of things to do. The older I get, the more I start to realize that summer becomes no longer the time for silly playfulness and days spent lying in the sun (not that I have actually spent weekdays doing that since I started having summer jobs 4 summers ago). But even a year back everything seemed different. The word summer used to represent vacation time, now it just means a season when the weather gets too hot and clothing layers seem to slide away. Summer is now just a period of time before yet another school year of sleepless nights, too much caffeine, and new experiences.

I suppose I've been feeling restless as I spend most of my free time watching Dawson's Creek, listening to the same couple songs on repeat, starting books and pushing them to the side after only reading a few pages, and trying to decide where I want to be after two years and never liking my choices.

As time slides by quicker than sand between my fingers I only hope that my restlessness settles soon so that I can stay on track with all my tasks.

And ha, yes i know exactly what you're talking about in terms of holidays not really being much of a break! I guess it just disappears with age, huh :(

I know what you mean about every day being jam-packed. My exams are finally over but now I feel like there's so much much I want to do and not time to do it! Lovely belt and pouch by the way.

Oh honey, I know the feeling!

The good thing about it all is that instead of pinning all your hopes on one season - you can sprinkle the good parts out year round.

I love the top and shoes. This outfit has a really fun summer vibe!

Also, your skirt from the previous post is just gorgeous! I wish Target stocked the Rodarte line here.

Haha I recently came to the same realisation that actually summer doesn't automatically mean holidays, I'm like instantly depressed whenever I'm reminded of that fact now
This outfit is so cute, I love the surfer dude vibe it reminds me of!
