Inevitably, every summer, a few trends pop up and weave their heads through the surface of American culture like a bad rash. Sometimes it’s a pattern. Sometimes it’s a brand. Sometimes it’s a song (I’m looking at you Robin Thicke!). Normally I’m not a fan of the summer trend train, but this year it’s one I can get behind: Watermelon.
Stuff with watermelon prints have been popping up all over the place. Including my house. A while ago it occurred to me that I really wanted to wear something watermelon print to the first day of school. Nevermind I haven’t had a first day of school in many years, I wanted a cool outfit. I wanted a watermelon jean jacket with matching hair barrette and alternating green and pink scrunch socks. Was that too much to ask?
No. I think not.
So. I may not have the wholllllle outfit, but by the ghost of Josh Harnett’s career, I got my watermelon jean jacket. I will be the coolest kid on the non-existent school yard for 30-something year old adults. SO AWESOME.
