Thursday Blah!

This is pretty much how I would love to walk around all week long. In hot summer weather.

Unfortunately it started raining right while I was walking home loaded with grocery bags (four to be exact) and no umbrella with me. Then again, I reminded myself of my favorite feeling. I love summer rain, the hot kind. When you're pretty much sweating all day long and the heat won't leave your place, but then there's hope with tons of rain coming down. The heat's still there but you can stand outside with your arms wide open embracing the much needed and anticipated rain. At last.

I love that feeling. I really do. Not exactly while I'm walking home trying to protect my leather bag like a frantic person but I love that feeling. I had an extra (and huge) plastic bag with me so I actually put my lovely bag into that gigantic plastic bag and off I went home. I got soaking wet, my hair looked rather sexy, and my leather bag survived the fun. 
And yes I walk home, and don't drive here. Kinda miss driving. I'm sure letting me back on the road at some point will be a fun thing. I'm a good driver, maybe more cautious than others my age, but I haven't been driving in so long. I miss it but I love the environment too much, and besides, living in Europe allows me to walk and take public transportation. The good kind. ;) 

And walking just like that after a major rain storm is one of my favorites...it calms me. Big time.

As you can see, I'm back on Pinterest.
Awwww, how I love that site!!

Have a terrific Thursday everyone.

I love the rain too! June Gloom has been in effect all month in SoCal and I actually like it - although some sunshine would be nice!

Rain is my favorite weather as well. Nothing better then the smell of rain through trees, or on heat road!

That first picture is a lovely outfit!

I pretty much love everything about that first picture. Especially the glasses, I want them! Walking in warm rain is the best. One time I did that across campus and everything was soaking wet...even my cell phone, woops.

Kristin said...

I wouldn't mind looking that chic either. It doesn't happen often enough. Haha!

Abby said...

Gorgeous pictures! I remember getting caught in a huge rainstorm biking with my friend. I got soaked but it was fun!

Cole said...

I totally agree! I love rain but only when it's warm enough to enjoy!

Kelsey said...

I think that first picture is the *PERFECT* summer look! I wish I could dress like that every day...or ANY day!

Lov the smell of rain.
This yellow skirt is gorgeous.

I'm okay with rain if the temp is still warm. Unfortunately every time it rains here we drop in temp!

I love it when it rains in the summer at night. That's always the best!

I get over rain super quick when it's cold and wet, but it is gorgeous for a time which is nice. :) Loooove these photos!
