Native American Summer

We seem to be experiencing a bit of a Native American summer right now. What?! I like to be politically correct. In any case, it has been in the 80′s for the past couple days, feeling much more like July than September. Part of me is unimpressed because of my love of fall and blazers, but the other part of me is saying “you’re an idiot, you will long for this day come February.” So, I’m going with it.

On Sunday we took Franklin to Fort Williams Park (where Portland Head Light is) for a little stroll. Though it was hot, and jeans were an inappropriate choice for someone who overheats in denim, it was a lovely day. Franklin got a little too hot, as you can see by his poor little face:

Jeans: Madewell
Floral t-shirt: Forever 21
Army green under tank: Uniqlo
Green moccasins: Esprit (via Marshall’s a million years ago)
Bag: Michael Kors
Watch: Michael Kors
Necklace: vintage
Sunnies: 80′s Purple

In the picture above you can see some writing on the rock. It says “Annie C. Maguire shipwrecked here Christmas Eve 1886.” Apparently, the Annie C. Maguire was a ship heading to Portland Harbor from Argentina when it crashed at the light house. The story is kind of interesting, click here to read it.

After getting in a little exercise we of course had to ruin our calorie burn by getting ice cream on the way home. Woops. We couldn’t help it – it was in the name of summer!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
