. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Summer Katie

Summer Katie


 dress: discovery  necklace: world market  

sandals: tjmaxx

A few summers ago, once school ended Chris referred to me many times as "Summer Katie."
Implying that in the summer I am a different person.

At first I was offended, thinking he must think (and then make others think) that I am unhappy, crabby and not as fun during the school year. 

Then I was honest with myself.  Let's be real here. 
Who wouldn't be more relaxed, enjoyable and more fun to be around when they aren't working?

I'm pretty sure I am.  

Well with today being the last day of school hello Summer Katie!  


Pin It!

Oohhh Summer Katie, I'm jealous :) My mom is an assistant Pre-K teacher, so I get real jealous during the Summer, ha! Love your outfit! You wear the maxi so well!

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahaaaaa, all my friends say that there is "school Carly" and "summer Carly".....it's an occupational hazard I think!

Hope you are doing something fun tonight to celebrate!

If today is your last day, do you start back in late August? I remember getting out of school mid May. (But this has been 15 years ago...I'm probably not remembering correctly.) I love the necklace by the way. I always forget about World Market for jewelry options.

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That is so funny - I think I would totally be the same way, but alas I work year-round. I do get to leave my work at work though. At 5 o'clock I'm done and I like it that way!

I have a similar dress - it's first maxi dress I've bought and I don't know why because they are SO comfy! I also always forget that World Market has such cool jewelry. Love that necklace!

Mary Kate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love that necklace!! You look soo adorable sooooo often!!!

Sam @ reddyorknot.blogspot.com said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I definitely have a "summer sam" alter ego and I cannot wait to let it out. Three more days of school until I can be happy, carefree summer sam!

Glad to hear it's not just me!
