Double Fringe

The days are getting longer and the suns seems to be getting hotter and hotter. Gone are the days where the sun would set at 5 p.m., and now the the light shines bright until almost 8 p.m. Summer is on the horizon, and this year I'm looking for a fresh perspective on the season that has also been my least favorite. This season I want to feel renewed, full of optimism and ready for any adventures that may come my way.

Recently, while the days have been outstandingly hot I've been finding refuge indoors, and in the shade of buildings and trees. On this day, Scott and I were wrapping a few things up at my parent's new property, and I decided that hiding from the sun in the shade of our airplane hangar was ultimately the best option. As of now, there are no airplanes in sight on the lower grounds, but when you look up to the sky you are bound to see one flying by. There is one tiny blue and white plane that flies over us all day, every day - back and forth, back and forth. I'm assuming that whoever is in the pilot seat is training, taking full advantage of the open air above us and beyond.

This purely me mixture of a denim dress and Minnetonka boots has been a favorite lately. I'm sort of obsessed with these Double Fringe Tramper boots, and love the festival vibe they give off. I don't foresee any festivals in my near future, but you can bet your bottom dollar I will be wearing these when I finally make my way to one.

Outfit details:
Dress: Levi's
Necklace: Gift from my folks
Bracelets: Jcrew, Kate Spade, & vintage
Double Fringe Tramper Boots: c/o Minnetonka Moccasin

I'm out for an afternoon of work and sipping on iced coffee (the only way to keep cool in this heat, am I right?). Don't forget to enter the Minnetonka Moccasin giveaway! You've got a chance of winning your very own pair of these festival worthy, darling boots.

What are you up to today? How do you plan to make this summer the best it can be?

  1. Such a lovely outfit!!! I love the boots. I can easily see them going with anything and everything. :) Summer is my least favorite as well, however it's my most favorite season for holidays as we celebrate my birthday, Jen's birthday and our anniversary in July and September! I find wearing loose, comfy clothes and having fruity icy popsicles is a wonderful help when the sun is high, and relaxing and not stressing over much can help me feel more relaxed. Swimming is also a plus!
