Wait And Scene is back! It’s summer! What could be better? NOTHING.

Summer is hands down the best season of the year for so many wonderful reasons; too many to list in one tiny blog post. So, instead of being my usual positive self, I’ve decided to be a negative Nancy and tell you about the five things I HATE about this time of the year. I truly hope that you hate some of these things too!

1) Talking to my Neighbors

I like being the mysterious, ┬áseemingly single girl who’s never home. Unfortunately/fortunately now that it’s summer it means more chill time outside in the sun and my mystery fades with each passing day. Can’t a girl just read, listen to weird music, and day-drink in peace? When you have neighbors, chit chat about the weather, gardening, and their children is inevitable. “Oh little Tommy scored a goal in last nights soccer game? So exciting!!” I’m too young for this ish…

2) A Lack of Leather

The summer weather is generally too hot for leather. This is a problem as leather makes up half my wardrobe. Now I only have my winning personality and cut-off jorts to show how cool and “bad” I am. Hmpf…

3) Rompers

We walked into a concert the other day and one of my girl friends exclaimed, “Urgh, looks like it’s Romper season again.” Rompers actually look cute on some girls (emphasis on SOME) but I hope we can agree that this is a pretty ridiculous clothing concept. Do you love to get nekkid in dirty public restrooms so you can do your biz? Well, you’re in luck because now there’s a clothing item that allows you to do this every time you have to go! And maybe even pee on your whole outfit if you’re lucky! Perfect.

4) White Sunglasses

Haaaay, what’s up, cool guy? I see you with your frosted tips and customized, lowered civic with the spoiler. Do these sunglasses come with a neon party tank and an offensive Native American head dress in some sort of music festival combo deal? I bet you totes hit up PacSun before ‘chella and ‘roo. Generalizations ARE my specialty…but really, speaking from personal experience, dudes who choose white as their sunglasses color o’ choice are always Ds.

5) Flip flops

No, just no. When temps drop the general public feels the need to toss aside all sensible footwear and replace it with cheap pieces of plastic that cling to their feet with a little more plastic. Flip flops become the new wear-me-errrywhere staple. This concept is every podiatrist’s, and my, worst nightmare. There is definitely a time and a place for flip flops: at the beach, on a boat, showering in public, walking to a pool…notice a trend? All these locales involve water. I do not care to see your troll feet walking down the city streets, at a restaurant *gag*, in the public restroom *double gag*, or at a concert where your feet could be smashed by my sensible footwear in one fell swoop. Your feet are one tiny wedge of plastic away from beer, so much dirt, vomit, and ALL OF THE POO. It’s gross. You’re gross. Byyyyyyyeeee.

This playlist is dedicated to all the things I love about the summer that I didn’t mention in this post and these five things I totes hate. Enjoy!



P.s. Who is Jack Garratt? He’s only put out two tracks on SC and I’ve been completely obsessed with both. Unhealthy number of replays.

P.p.s. Hayley of W Darling has the voice of an angel.

P.p.p.s. Please note I rounded out the playlist with my theme song, “No Romance.”
