It’s the week before Labor Day weekend and it signifies a rush of summer regret.
Did you wish to go to the beach and never did? It’s okay, I’m in the same boat. Why can’t summer hours exist through the year? I guess we can look forward to shorter days and a long winter.
To soak up the bit of summer, I headed to Georgetown to walk up and down M street for a final time. Now filling with college students, the street is a reminder of how much the area has changed from the beginning of when I started college in 2010 to now. So many shops have gone in and out; restaurants sink or swim.
It’s a reminder that change occurs on a regular basis, but it’s natural.
Despite my younger sister finally attending my alma matter (UMD), I can’t help but feel nostalgic. I paired some basics, perfect for the fall season as if I was about to head to class.
I paired my hype-worthy hat that I bought right when I arrived in New York city after graduating college with my Joe’s Jeans and Nike Air Max’s I recently bought from KITH and my latest summer city visit.
While I love summer for its ability to wear high-waisted shorts and cute flared skirts, I miss wearing jeans especially in the summer. On cooler days when the evening temperatures fall below 70s, I’m prepared to throw on my jeans, grab a burger and eat outside under a lamp post.
As summer comes to a close, I plan to head to Philadelphia for Budweiser’s Made in America musical festival to reminisce in my college days and live out an annual tradition I celebrate with my best friend (who just started her first year in medical school!) Lauren! We’re planning on taking on all the Philly cheesesteaks and rage to J. Cole, Beyonce, Big Sean and most importantly: The Weeknd.
Hope to see you there! Cheers to the end of high humidity levels and sweaty evenings. Hello lace tights and oversized sweaters!
