Some would say that Hello Kitty has been “around the way” within the last decade or so. I, as a loyal & long-time Sanrio fiend, have stuck by her side. The Sanrio x Dr. Martens collab gets someone like me going giddy. Hello Kitty celebrates Doc Martens 50th anniversary with a limited edition shoe collection, consisting of five designs, Mary-Jane style & the classic 1460 8-eyelet boot. This exclusive collection is said to hit Nordstrom early August in limited quantities. So keep up, I know I am.

Summer StormFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Summer Storm by RisMoney

My dad refers to the summer storm season as “June Gloom,” for obvious reasons like it would be June, & the sky would be gloomy.. Although, the storms have been prominent way past June this year, making it “Not Dry July” & possibly “Aqua August” [haha]. I’m not mad at it though; the 95% humidity, 80 degree nights, & overcast is straight tropical, even out here in the Midwest. Also, swimming in the hot rain has been one of my favorite pastimes this year. It seems the storms have been around just as much as the sun has, the only thing that makes it considerable summer weather is that it’s hot than a mug! How does one dress for such a bi-polar forecast? I suggest getting comfortable in your swim suit, throw some golaches in your beach bag, & wear acrylic jewelry.
