Did you say that summer is almost over?

Because my skin didn’t get the message.

To tell you the truth, even when I’m super tan, I’m really not.  My mother would call it my beautiful “porcelain skin.”

Nice spin, mom.  Way to make the little lady feel a little better while she slathers on that sunscreen.

Well played.

    Your porcelain skin is beautiful! I’ve always wished I had paler skin…I tan pretty easily, but I haven’t really been outside much, so I’m just awkwardly pale haha. Also, I love your blazer 🙂

    SPF for the win! I love a fair skinned girl who embraces her milkiness!

    You’re so pretty! I’ve always thought pale skin was more attractive, to me it says healthy. 🙂 That elephant necklace is GREAT.

    Ah, that elephant necklace is adorable (as are you!). It takes me all summer just to start getting tan…only to have summer end : )
