And the Sky’s Always Blue By the Brownstones

Jun 18, 2012

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucketjuneblog054 Me and my boyfriend live in a studio. A teenie tiny studio that likes to suck up all the hot air from the outside and not let in any of the cool summer breezes that try to break in through the window screens. The curtains barely ever billow but, oh, the humidity sits on top of us like some fat cat on a mouse.

So to escape this apartment-turned-sauna, we hang out outside a lot, taking slow lazy walks around our neighborhood and stare at all the pretty buildings. And specifically, at all the balconies that we wish we had. Sigh, maybe we'll just makeshift our own?

dress- old navy
scarf- h&m
sweater- f21

  12. Your cardigan and bag are super cute! I hate it when living spaces keep all of the heat enclosed in, those balconies are so pretty!

  15. Oh, how I'd kill for a balcony. Luckily though, we do have a roof that's awfully nice for drinking beer on after work : )

  16. Your area is really pretty! So leafy and green and I love the look of that building in the 3rd row. I hate humidity too... at least your place would be warm in winter (? unless it's not, which would suck).
