In my attempt to become a more exciting version of myself, I attended a Swap Meet for the first “real” time, if you will, this past weekend, and I’ve found that Swap Meets might just be my most favorite things in the world? Not only are the people there fantastic, and you can get unlimited Tostilocos and tacos for the lowest price you could possibly think of, but there’s so much to see, and so many different booths with different things. I got a ridiculous amount of lipsticks, and I was almost completely convinced into buying a vintage telephone for fifteen bucks, but it was too heavy, and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to carry it around all day.
The best buy I got, though, was the one thing I’ve been searching for for two years now—Lolita sunglasses. I know everyone and their mother has a pair already, but with so many missed opportunities, I was desperate. And then I finally saw them, just sitting there under a FOR SALE sign, I had to. I almost sprinted towards the spot where they were sitting.
Naturally, I haven’t been able to get them off since, and a couple of days ago, I took a nap outside inside our trampoline, under a multitude of blankets, looking at the sky through tinted glasses, and it felt so much like summer, I cried myself back into another nap. I’ve been fixing myself lemonades, too, so the amount of summer-related, aesthetically-pleasing things I’ve been doing lately, combined with California’s perfect weather, I had to make this playlist, to listen to when I’m frying under the sun in lazy braids when it’s really summer.
If the weather’s nice where you’re at, go put on those bejeweled flip-flops you haven’t worn in years and attempt to make your own lemonade and just sit outside. Doesn’t matter if you don’t have a porch or a backyard, just go outside, somewhere, anywhere, and lay in the sun!
