My Heart Is Full: Sundry Tank



Lately I've been walking around in a melancholy mood, feeling like I have nothing to wear and completely torn up over the end school.  I know that probably sounds crazy, but this time of year is always a little bittersweet and leaves me with tons of mixed emotions.  I’m excited for the lazy days of summer which lay ahead, but I’m sad about the passage of time that is marked by the last day of school.  This year my heart is full of even more emotions this time around because not only it is the end of a school year, but it is also the end of our era at this particular school.  A lot of factors led us to make this change, and while I’m excited for what the future holds at our new school, I am going to miss the wonderful community that we have called home for the last seven years.  The kids will adjust perfectly fine.  I know that.  But, it doesn’t obscure my sadness about leaving.  Basically, it comes down to the fact that I hate endings.  When a vacation is over, I just want to get home - no long goodbye, no stretching out the last moments.  As a college student I made a significant effort to schedule my exams at the beginning of exam week so that I wouldn’t be there as the campus cleared out for holiday.  Endings make me anxious, and I’m not usually an anxious person.

In an effort to snap out of my blue funk, a little summer retail therapy was in order, and I am starting with this adorable little Sundry tank. The blue and white stripes are a classic, and the heart adds a little playfulness and a pop of color.  It’s the perfect tank for a casual Saturday with the kids or over a bathing suit for a day on the boat.  Recently, I paired it with Mother Jeans and my Joie sandals, but I think I would love it with a pair of cut-off denim shorts. So instead of concentrating on endings, here's to new beginnings!
