Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness
We went to the Ex last Tuesday and it was so fun. We went on rides and saw some of exhibits such as sand sculptures and animals so all in all it was a great day. The Ex marks the end of the long and warm summer days bringing in the chilly fall and finally winter. It makes me really happy and sad that this summer has passed. Lessons are learned and made and overall it was so a good summer.
Summertime Sadness, I can't even find any other appropriate title for this look. This look is the one of the final shout outs to the summer looks we have seen on here. The shorts and the simple shirt and t-shirt layer has been a staple for a lot of summers past. I have really grown a liking to the bag too, there is something nostalgic about it looks like, almost kinda vintage-y. Of course to bring the look altogether I put on some boat shoes which were another summer staple this year. Overall the look has a "final kiss to this summer" feel even the leaves are turning too.
The song choice was very appropriate too. The feel and tempo of the song is just saddening. It makes me look back on this summer, reminiscing every moment. The music video for it is nothing short of amazing. I am not a big LDR fan but this song together with the music video was pure artistry. It reminded me of old films and love that has been lost. Overall this will be a good closing track for this summer.
Kiss me hard before you go, summertime sadness.
PS Apparently my old blog is still up and running it still posts the looks on though I haven't updated it. I will soon.
