The beginning of every season is exciting. And the summer solstice? Doubly so. It not only kicks off summer, but as the longest day of the year, lends itself to a sort of magic. Summer, I think, is magic and full of endless possibilties. Will it be a summer of beach parties, vacations, and water days? Or, will your summer be full of days when you can just eat watermelon and read library books, go to the movies, and invite loved ones over to BBQ? (I say go for a summer where you can do both!)
The summer solstice is the doorway to all of that. It’s fresh, new, and hopefully not too hot!
What does the summer solstice mean to me? (Besides the kick off of summer?) White. Pants, dresses, tops, shorts, etc. (Yes, I know, we can wear white when we want, we’re grown!) But, there is something about the start of summer (and the beginning of a season) that just make me want to break out the white.
Of course, the proper pops of color are fun. Though you could tempt fate and do all white!
This dress is Mara Hoffman. I love her. The company is committed to sustainable practices, the clothes are colorful and fun, and most of it is fit for summer. The dress above is from a few years ago, linen, perfect (in fact it was in one of my first posts, seen here). And I’ve linked similar ones for your shopping pleasure below!
Shoes are Dr Scholl’s and some of my favorites. Easy to wear and go with everything.
Vintage hat. Let’s enjoy the sun but not look like it!
I would love to know: how do you celebrate summer? What does it mean to you? Any solstice rituals?
