Summer Wishes!

A wish on a dandelion! 


One of my favourite memories from childhood is making a wish on a dandelion! 

There was something so magical and exciting about it. When summer came around and these little guys started popping up, I always made sure to pick the nicest one I could find. It had to be perfect with no missing pieces so that when I made my wish I would get to blow away all the pieces myself all at once to make my wish come true. If I didn't make that happen in one try, then it wasn't quite a perfect wish, and it wouldn't come true. That's why I would never pick an unperfect one. Half of the wishes power would already be gone. I found this little one in my yard. The grass was freshly cut and yet this dandelion was still remaining. I don't know how, because the grass surrounding it was cut. When I saw it old memories circulated my mind and I had to pick it. I had to make a wish for old time's sake! And I did. 




When the weather is hot, it's always hard to find something to wear. Especially when you don't want to wear shorts. Maxi dresses are my favourite thing to wear in the summer. They keep you covered but are also light enough so that you don't get warm in them. They are also comfortable and an easy outfit when you don't want to try. Who wants to try when it's so hot outside. They are many different maxi dresses out there as well. I really love printed maxi dresses. The one I am wearing is forever21 and it's been perfect for those hot days. I really love the floral design, it's so simple yet lovely. I wore some flat sandals so I would be extra comfortable and finished this look with some accessories to style it up a bit. What do you guys think of this look?

What do you guys prefer to wear on those hot days? Also, Have any of you made wishes on dandelions as a child?
