It was ridiculously hot this weekend, so slip on sandals and clothes that breath were crucial for enjoying the weather. There's nothing comfortable about gazing up at clear skies and never-ending sunshine while sweating and panting away. Along with the theme of "Let the Sunshine In," I let free my inner hippie.... sartorially. I definitely don't have it in my to embody the free-living souls of the 60s, or really of any generation. 

Completely unrelated, random, life tid-bit: last week in my life sciences class, we completed a mtDNA sequencing lab (mtDNA= mitochondrial DNA; to read more about what this is, how it works, why it's preferred over nuclear DNA, etc. click here). According to the current database, I was linked to people of Japanese and Finnish descent, and belong to haplogroup W. After doing some research I learned that some Northern Indians belong to the W haplogroup, so personal paradigm shift avoided. In addition, I learned only about 1-2% of the world's population belongs to haplogroup W, so I felt like a pretty unique snowflake. 


  1. Beautiful pictures :)

    and yes this looks like just what you
    might need for such weather.

  3. I'd be lying if I said I actually understood more than 5% of what you said about haplogroups but haplogroup W seems pretty unique and cool so you go, Glenn Coco! The skirt is super cute!

  6. sounds like a very interesting science class! I wish my science classes were anything near that but oh no, they were very far from that. anyway, hot weather sounds like something like heaven right now. maxi skirts, summery tops, sandals. oh how I wish I could wear all those things again. and soon! :)

  9. I'm not entirely sure about the science behind what you shared, but it sounds like you're a really unique mix of heritages. You're gorgeous!!

    Also, I feel like I keep seeing Birkenstocks popping up this year. I have a couple of pairs that I felt frumpy to wear...but I feel like this is the year to bring them back.
