I’ve often said that once fall comes around, you can go from hypothermia to heat flashes in a moment.

So while yesterday I was craving a chai latte and a warm blanket, all I want today is a frozen desert. I’m as ironic as my outfit of the day: a huge sweatshirt over a skirt and flip-flops.

Enjoy !
