My Nemesis, Summer

Summer has finally come…which perversely bums me out because I really dislike warm, sunny weather. Odd, I know.

In the realm of other things currently driving me bonkers: I've spent the better part of my free time in the last week working on a draft of a paper I'll be giving this October at the North Eastern Conference on British Studies (hello trip to Connecticut and NYC!) and on the latest round of revisions to my book proposal and draft manuscript. I've taken a few breaks to have some dinners and drinks with friends and hit the town last weekend to check out some bands but mostly I am just really in need of a break!

That sweater is so great - and it is really kind of a summer feeling print, so you made it work :)
I love the summer of course, and have only been all too happy to shed my layers.

This is a fantastic sweater!! I love it with those pants.
I'm not a huge fan of the crazy heat, but I must say I enjoy summer. It's pretty beautiful here

I know how you feel about summer, at least in a way - I don't mind the sun and heat so much, but I do mind having to put all of my favourite clothes away for the season :( Love your top, the print is so unusual and lovely.

Cute sweater, love the print! I am the total opposite of you: I love the summer and hate the winter. I think I should live in California!

I'm not a fan of Summer really, either. You're not alone. Great sweater!

That geometric sweater with the cobalt blue is such a striking combo! Congrats on being asked to present a paper, what an honour!

you would pass out in GA. It is ridiculously hot. My nemesis is sand. Hate it, but love the beach.
