THIS is how summer feels right now. 
"Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running; that's the way to live."
-Jack Kerouac

These summer days feels endlessly satisfactory and infinite. I feel as if I'm milking every day for what's it's worth, making the best of it, and filling them with just enough of everything. 
All these things- sitting on the floor with my bro's in the evening sun eating Chinese take-out listening to Joan Jett, cruising and jamming to Gorillaz, perusing over old records, chilling on the porch smoking American Spirits as the stars come out, and sitting on a rooftop garage at sunset talking for hours- all of them are precisely what summer should feel like. Easygoing. Complete. As if everyone has this lens they look through the moment summer kicks in. I think the golden sun and warm breeze helps.

"Running or walking; writing either music or words; going to a museum and being inspired by the colors and motion; something nice to eat; afternoon sun; solitude and rest; an encounter with water, whether it's the ocean or the tub; a conversation with someone in which something is being learned and shared; good music, maybe dancing; night."
-Victoria Legrand, describing her perfect day

Trying to soak up every last ounce of summer's glory.

/// summertime clothes ///

Visiting the city with my bro's just blew me away in all its glory. Being in the city in the summer was something too good to be true. I felt satisfied with the city energy and that feeling of summer in the very atmosphere as it affected the way you thought and talked. 
Walking around with the smell of cigarettes in the air, watching the sun set, and doing whatever the heck we felt like was everything you could ever want.
The whole day was everything I could ever want, really. And with that, we're planning our next day trip.

I dunno, it's funny but every single day of summer is wondrous. It's everything you want. Whether it be nighttime Steak-n-Shake runs, swimming for hours listening to Surfer Blood, spending the afternoon listening to Kanye and painting palm trees, or laying in the sun on the boat at sunset listening to Beach House's Bloom. 
The summer mentality has overtaken me. I feel at my leisure, easygoing, yet filled with an indescribable ambition. Everything seems so attainable during summer. The only valid thing in my mind is summer and summer alone and soaking up every last sun drenched, Surfer Blood, cropped Hawaiian shirt filled minute of it. 
I believe going to Chicago this week with my bro's will give me a certain energy.
