What is it about summer?

I love all of the seasons. Each one has its own distinct look, feel and style of life. And while I don’t really have a favorite season, there is something special about summer.


There is a quality to summer unlike the rest of the year that creates such allure and build up.  To me summer is about spending time with my children and loved ones, no schedules, hanging out at the beach or on boats, enjoying beautiful sunsets while the moon rises on the opposite horizon, awesome summer storms with booming thunder and bright lightning, and of course the light colorful styles of summer fashion.


When I look through my closets there are more pieces that can be worn during the warmer months or vacations in the sun, than any other season. It’s odd since those particular pieces make it out of the closet for the shortest period of time. Regardless, it doesn’t stop me from looking at, buying and now designing clothing that is perfect for warmer climates. Bright colors, bold patterns and flowing fabrics are some of my favorite things in fashion and the summer is just the time to experiment with these.   So although I’m knee deep into our family summer bucket list, doing all the fun things we set out to do before the start of the next school year, I still have my sketch pad in hand while the inspiration of the season abounds!

Who knows what it is about summer. Maybe it’s the bronzed skin. Maybe it’s that friends come to visit and the family has time together relaxing, cooking and playing. Maybe it’s just that waking up in the sunshine every morning makes smiles a little easier. Whatever it is, it’s the good life!
