August 2022 Month in Review

How is it September already?! This year has been an absolute blur… It feels like just yesterday I was anxiously awaiting my Covid test results before moving to Scotland for the semester. And now, I feel like I’m finally starting to settle into a calmer pace of life—although I still haven’t quite figured out the whole work-life balance thing, as evidenced by the serious lack of blog posts in August.

As much as I love the idea of linen shorts or billowy white linen pants for the summertime, I don’t own any such pieces, and I actually thought I might have to go buy something to fulfill the theme. I admit that I’m not well-versed in my fabrics, but I just so happened to wear this beige dress to work a few weeks ago—the thought crossed my mind to check the tag, and lucky for me, it was linen!
