The idea for this post came to me as I was just laying around the other day, taking a break from daily chaotic life. I kind of neglected my inspirational tumblr so I thought I’d log in to see what’s new. As I started scrolling down my dash, I noticed how my thoughts were mostly “Ahh I wish I did this in August” or “I wish I wore this in 40’C last month” etc. So instead of tweeting and updating my Facebook with the endless list of “I wish” posts, I decided to write all of it down here and shared what I wanted but failed to do/wear this summer.
First of all, I wish I posted these photos from my trip to The Netherlands much, much earlier. But, I’ll suck it up and take the blame – I totally forgot about the promise for part two. So here it is, finally! Hope you like the photos even though there are a lot of blurred out ones. But in my opinion, it kind of adds to the charm of the film photography.
My second “I wish” is also NL related – I wish I stayed there longer than I did. I had a great time, saw and did some pretty amazing things and met some really nice people. I also wish I’d visited all of the places I planned to visit. Unfortunately, I only got to the half of my “to-do while in Holland” list. I wish I come back sometime soon, I miss it.
I wish I wore more heels. I love heels and own over 20 pairs of them. But all summer long I had to run around, do this, take care of that, so my default shoes were either flats or my trusty pointy sandals, which I’m sure you’re all familiar with by now.
Speaking of shoes and stuff, I also wish I wore more skirts and crop tops. I already said running around was the death of heels and that can also be said for skirts. I felt most comfortable in cycling shorts or denim cut offs. But now I regret the fact that I let my laziness win over my want for wearing something other than just shorts most of the time.
I wish I took more photos. I’m a huge photography lover and I try really hard to make my shooting skills better. I’m pleased with the outcome of most of my shots, but I always strive for more. Because I know I CAN do better.
And finally, I wish I worked more, drew more, painted more, designed more, DIY‘d more. I have done a lot these past few months and am really proud of myself. But still don’t feel truly satisfied because I know I’m capable of doing so much more. And now that the summer’s farther and farther behind us, I’m ready for the season ahead. Bring it on.
