It’s still summer. I’m coming to terms with that and not complaining again until it is the end of August, at which time I will complain one more time.
It has been really hot and humid. And we still leave the house every day because hello it’s summer and I have three very active little boys to engage every day with no preschool until mid-September. So we continue our weekly morning jaunts to the zoo, the playground, the Botanical Gardens, etc. And I must admit that not every day is a dress/skirt day. But when I throw on my trusty cut-off jean shorts, that’s still no excuse to completely slack off. Add more denim (!) with a vest, sunglasses, and a feather necklace, and I guess I can still look semi-put-together.
Sunglasses & necklace: Anthropologie (they no longer have either, but check their accessories– they are pretty amazing, I think)
Denim vest: Banana Republic– last summer– find similar color here
Cut-off jean shorts: Homemade from thrifted 7 jeans
Also, forget make-up. The only thing I wear in the summer is moisturizer and lip gloss (but usually just chapstick). Occasionally I’ll throw on some mascara, but only if I’m meeting up with a friend.
Sandals: A steal at $15 from Steve Madden!
Next week I shall attempt another Dress That Kid, but only as long as all three are willing to participate! Those boys are a real hoot.
