Summer 2014 has been a weird one so far in Central Tejas. It's not freakin' uber hot like it typically is around this time of year. Just, you know, freakin' hot. (I'd knew you rain gods would come around eventually!) But, nevertheless, it's hot. It's June. And you know what that means. Oh yes, another summer strong of high-waistedness, top cropness, and floral kimononess. Old faves remixed into a new outfit. Thrown together for the commonality of being different, comfortable, and blue. So why not get together and make new summer remix memories?

Threw this Labor Day outfit together a couple of weeks ago before heading out to Seattle / Vancouver for a week. Yeah, you've read it right. That's a Labor Day outfit. I know, I know. Everything about this outfit probably, okay, most likely, broke every rule about Fall dressing. But we're in Texas. Summer sticks around for a really, really long time around here. Despite it already being September. Heh. That's Fall in Texas for ya! Or supposedly Fall. I'm not sure if we even get Fall in Texas. Anywho, with the Texas heat still in the triple digits, looks like I'll be wearing this ensemble a few more times before tucking it away for next summer. Sorry, Fall, we're not quite ready for ya just yet!

Been getting a lot of compliments for the red skirt but I haven't been able to figure out how to remix it with other pieces for an updated, edgy look. The jean crop top, on the other hand, has been easily remixed with other skirts in an attempt to get as much wear out of it as possible. Got this nagging feeling this crop top thing may not stick around next summer, even though I've picked up another one in a mint color and have been eyeing a multi-colored tribal inspired one for quite sometime. Arg. Must. Restrain. Myself. Although I must admit, I'm losing this internal struggle very badly. I may just break down and get it! It's that cute! Anyhoo, if I could wear this look everyday, I would. One of my fave summer outfits of 2013 and perfect for this Texas heat!

Nothing like crafting up Christmas cards in uber comfy Spring/Summer-ish attire! Quite the oxymoron, I know. But that's Texas in December for ya! And who crafts with red lips? This gal. Sometimes just for the heck of it, sometimes when I'm in the creative, daydreamy mood. There's just something about red lips that inspires and sparks and excites life while creating. Whether it be crafting or cooking.

Anything. So with red lips, homemade Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites (to be blogged soon), London Fog tea elixir and my inspiration journal - I dove headfirst into a quite ambitious DIY Christmas card project. Also to be blogged soon.

If things turn out successful. Wish me luck, crafting homies!
