Summer Heart

By Haleigh In Non classé

Hi babydolls! My summer heart gets very nostalgic at this time of year when I feel this season slowly subsiding. In Paris we are in an indian summer, September 1st brought us warmer weather of all things and sun and skies so pure it makes me giddy. This summer was so special to me traveling the world, making memories with old friends and new ones, and rediscovering my independence in more ways than one. Sometimes when we’re serious when we’re young, we build invisible borders around our life that we let govern us for too long, forgetting how much freedom we really can have. With just a little vacation and throwing our responsibilities to the wind for a short while we rediscover our summer hearts…our free spirits, our spontaneity, our inner water baby, our eternal youth. We come back from our adventures wearing our freckles and tan lines knowing well they too will soon fade away like the summertime…

Above are just some left over photos from some but not all of my summer travels around the globe. I wish I could spend almost all my time in the sun and water for sport and relaxation with friends followed with hot summer nights dancing, drinking, and laughing way too much. But I guess if we could do that every day it would be taken for granted. I hope your summer was filled with adventure. Maybe you’ll share some of it with us here in the comments or on  twitter, facebook, and tumblr. Byebye for now dears! P.S. I got a very nice shootout in the favourite style bloggers section of Matchbook Mag this month. Please visit the new issue if you haven’t already.

    That hotel (I guess it is a hotel though…) on the 7th picture, with the lights in the pool, looks wonderful! Could you tell me where it is or what’s the name of this place?

    I should let go of my invisible borders too, spare some money and just travel without worries 🙂

      It’s in Hvar in Croatia! It’s called the Hotel Amfora and the pool is wonderful…but honestly I would’t recommend the hotel. Despite that the pool is nice in Croatia the sea and beaches are even better so save your money and skip this pool and enjoy it’s natural wonders!

    That first picture of you is absolutely beautiful! I know what you mean, I always feel that when the last of my tan fades, the holiday has well and truly become a fond memory, until then I’ll just enjoy the glow!

    Indian summer… too bad, now it is raining like usual September…
    I will be on holidays in few weeks, I spent summer in the office, and I am quite scared about the weather… But all weathers are good to throw my responsabilities away. I so understand what you mean !
    Good luck for the rentrée !
