Fortune Cookie Necklace, "A" Necklace, and Silk Dress - 20 Main
LOOK AT MYYYY TTTAAAAANNNNN!!! LOOK AT IT!!!!!!!
Yes. It is there.
Look at my tan.
Stop denying it.
Tan. Tan. Tan.
I know you can see it.
I also have a Sperry's tan (a tan on my feet in the shape of a Sperry's boat shoe), which I am so super proud of.
See, one of my goals this summer was to get a tan. You are probably laughing and thinking "Annika, that isn't hard at all. Just go sit out in the sun." Not that simple. If you're thinking that, then I envy your ability to tan that easily. Both one of my best friends, Claudia, and my little sister are able to tan if they just step out into the sun, but I was not blessed with such skin. Instead, I was born with nearly fluorescent skin. I am so white that I glow in blue light. Ok, that may be a teeny, tiny, little, itty bitty exaggeration, but you catch my drift. To remedy my glow-in-the-dark skin, I went to the beach a ton and my Disney cruise to Mexico and the Cayman Islands didn't hurt. And, because I am not a fan of sunburns or skin cancer, I applied, at the least, SPF15 sunscreen each time. As a result of being in the sun so much, my freckles are a little bit more visible and my nose is a little pink. But hey, small price to pay for being TAAAANNNNNN.
I leave for Singapore tomorrow and must say good bye to Martha's Vineyard and its delicious ice cream. Its wonderful morning yoga classes. Its bagels and 0 Calorie Vitamin Water. Its relaxing walks around town. Its afternoon motor boating (which my sister so cleverly named "zooming"). I'll miss it, but can't wait to be back home.
I hope everyone has had the best summer possible and is just as excited to get the year started as I am :)
