We can’t believe that it’s already August and that fall is right around the corner. But before you start mourning the loss of summer, take a look at these stunning illustrations by Erin Robinson — aka BrooklynDolly — for a beautiful reminder that there are plenty more warm days ahead. Robinson’s bright and colorful paintings of swimsuit-clad black women soaking up the sun are just what we need to keep us in a summertime state of mind. And it’s no surprise that the New York City-based artist is actually a fashion designer by trade — we literally want to wear every bathing suit, headscarf and pair of sunglasses she paints. Click through the gallery and take a look for yourself! And make sure to visit the BrooklynDolly website for more pretty paintings./giphy pray
