Summer Afternoon

Summer afternoon — summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.

Henry James

For Michiganders (yes, to us, that’s a word), Labor Day is the last day of summer. Most schools don’t begin before the Tuesday after Labor day (although there’s an annoying trend of school districts applying for waivers from the state law), and so we milk holiday time down to the last moment. (Then we surge back to our homes inside of one or two days, and drive each other crazy on the road.)

That’s real life. In Second Life, we can be on vacation up north … or down south … soaking up the sun until the cows come home, or the servers reset and lose the sim. I’m partying here, and doing it in a feathered dress by Brittany Golden, available right now at the Level event (see down in the list), along with a pair of shoes that were right beside it.

I like the look of this for the most part; like many feathered dresses, it’s flirty and fun. You’ll have several colors to choose from, from this sky blue to a black.

I love these sandals by Marchese. The colors of both the leather and the jewels are HUD controlled, so there’s plenty of options for you. But I really have a soft spot for the mid-height heels; I just love that shape!

I found this little sort-of-bar thing on the crescent white-sand island here in seni seviyorum, and chose it to model five different colors of a pants outfit from Sascha’s Designs, called Pepper. It includes everything except the shoes. This color combination is called Happy.

“I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year….” — Edna St. Vincent Millay

Summer technically ended over a month back; but the heat has just really broken here in RL Alabama.  In Second Life, of course, seasons are more a function of how the sim owner wants to have them; and so I jumped in to a tropical region to take a last look at summer before I start pulling out my fleece and shearling coats in earnest.  I spotted an interesting little location, seni seviyorum, via the Places page on Koinup.  With a little persistence, you can often find someplace new and engaging to check out for posing, and I did so this time.

Even more color after the break….
