the first day of summer

top: urban outfitters (old) // skirt: urban outfitters (here) // sandals: aldo (old) // necklace: c/o: oia jules 

I took these pictures not too long ago on a very sunny evening and from the state of my hair and lack of makeup I wasn't particularly ready for an outfit post. 
Considering we've had TONS of rain lately, I had to take advantage of the little bit of dry weather and take the pictures. 
I love the idea of pairing different shades of the same colour. It gives off a really refreshing vibe and it's perfect for the first day of summer! 

Have an amazing weekend everyone!
To all my friends in Calgary, stay safe! My thoughts are with all of you!
