Lately 5/3/2018

In case you hadn't noticed... it's MAY! We are almost halfway through 2018. WHAT. This week has been pretty uneventful (in a good way).

What has been exciting, is the gorgeous weather that we have been having! It's been warm and sunny and I could not be happier about it! Contrary to popular belief, I am not a huge fan of summer... also kind of ironic that my blog's name is Summer Wind (it's named after Frank Sinatra if you didn't know!). But I just hate the really hot heat. Like anything above 80 degrees and I'm over it (is anyone else like this or is it just me?). So in my head, I'm always rushing summer along so we can get to fall.

However, this year, it makes me so happy to see Henry thriving in the heat! I had felt so bad this winter because Henry was pretty cooped up with the terrible low temperatures and snow. It's so nice to see him loving life out in the heat!

Wearing: I came across this maxi skirt and really loved the colors. I love a good maxi skirt because they are so comfortable! This is a little more bohemian than I typically choose, but I thought with this white linen shirt, it'd be a bit Carolina Herrera, no? Such an easy-to-wear summer outfit.

Reading: I was looking up something and came across this article on how long food lasts in the fridge. It's something I often look up and this list is really helpful. 
Splurge vs. Save: I've been such a fan of Ferragamo's flower heel shoes. It's pretty simple, but makes something seemingly classic, a bit fun and updated: case in point, a classic black pump. Not only do I love the design but Ferragamo has to be one of my top-favorite brands of all-time. I swear by their bags and shoes. They're such high quality and beautiful. However, I know they can be super pricey! How about this 'save' find?! They're practically identical and both beautiful in their own way because of the different heel heights. I think the 'save' pair would make a perfect work shoe! 

 Is anyone else a Handmaid's Tale fan (it's on Hulu)? I watched the first season in a matter of days. It's the kind of show that is so insane and horrifying that you have to watch something light afterward just to get yourself back in a normal state of mind. Season 2 just started and there are currently 3 episodes out. Naturally, I've watched all of them already. The show is still horrifying, but you can't look away!

Listening: I just started May's playlist. It only has three songs, but I'm working on it!  

Loving: Oh. My. Gosh. I NEED this dress. It's so good, isn't it?!

Wanting: So much goodness in the widget... allll things summer! 

Pittsburgh-ing: If you are in downtown Pittsburgh around lunchtime, stop into V3. It's a cute little pizza place where you can get a big pizza with all the toppings you could want for just around $8. It's such a steal and delicious. Also, they have a few outdoor tables. I was there with Henry and someone even brought out a bowl of water for Henry!

Quoting: See more of my favorites, here.

Great post! I giggled when I read that you're over any weather above 80 degrees. I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and 80 degrees is early spring weather; that's classified as a "cool" day for us! We also close the whole state down if the temperature drops below 30, though. Have a great day!

I cannot believe we are almost half-way through 2018! And that navy and white maxi dress is a dream!

I love your lip color in the pic with Henry! Can you tell what brand and color it is?

Thanks! I don't think I have anything on in the photo but can't quite remember.. if anything, it would be the Dior lip glow in 001!
