What We Wore: End of Summer Days Look Book

13:16

It'll be October very soon.


This will mark the beginning of fall, which is basically a non-existent season in Nigeria. Unfortunately. I sometimes long for the need to wear knee-high boots and cashmere sweater dresses that hit about two to three inches above my knees.



Summer represents fun and colour, happiness, sunshine and what not. Seeing as Nigeria is hot all year round, I'll be assuming that the "fun vibes" stem from the summer vacation syndrome. You know, the whole "Yay! Nothing  serious to do for about 2 to 3 months!"? Or may be that's just for students. Do people who werk a 9 to 5 have summer vacays? Just realized I have no idea.

I have had a slightly depressing summer. This is probably because I had no summer holiday. I so looked forward to my November holiday thinking Yay! I can finally have my fun summer aaaand POP! I just found out that even was scrapped (2 weeks doesn't count). How did I become the person with no holidays? Oh School, how could you do this to me? 







I remember back in high school, I anxiously waited for the holidays to be over so I could get back to the routine that was my life and hang out with my friends that I could count on only one hand. Now, I am surrounded by friends, a less routine life but hardly any "chill" moments.


I don't even know how to chill. Watch a movie? That's my go-to. What fun things could a person who's been accused one too many times of being boring do? Fun to me is eating foods I love. Fun to me is reading books I love. Being around my friends and having silly, meaningless conversations is my definition of fun.





Summer is fun. Summer is a splash of colours. Summer is a state of mind I guess. #SummerForever
