♥ me some Bongo

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I’ve always loved the idea of summer, and sun, and all things hot. In North Dakota, we looked forward to summer all year long. But now that I live in Texas, I know of a new kind of summer. A summer that’s hot, really hot, and that looms over each year like a descending fireball. I wouldn’t dare wear jeans so shorts have been on repeat. I love this blouse from BONGO. It’s so light, and airy . Love the fabric and color. The world’s best top for a woman of a certain age. Comfort and sex appeal all wrapped into one and oh the color choices! Love it! Washes well, and hasn’t shrunk hardly at all. 

Anywho, at the of your first Texas summer, you’ll be older, wiser, tanner and mosquito-scabbled. But you’ll also have earned the right to roll you eyes when your coastal friends talk about a hot week they live through. “Hot? Let me tell you about hot.” LOL!!! Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

    I love the page and your outfit! I like that you balanced the proportions with the long sleeved blouse and the shorts. Also beautiful bag and heels. Anyway I live in Texas too and I understand when you stress how hot it is. When others long for summer, I dread it and wish for fall/winter so yea I get it haha
