what you thought was a hurricaine was just the rustling of the wind

I just got back from an incredibly relaxing weekend in the country. Lots of hiking, swimming, and all-important napping. Not at all happy to be going back to the real world tomorrow. How scary is it that we only have a few weeks of summer left??

I wish I could tell you the rhyme or reason behind this look, but I cannot. I do love these socks.

urban prepster? yeah, i'm not sure why the look works but it does. the sock and the color of your polo are wonderful. And the leather mini, good god, just awesome.

Summer always goes much too quickly for my liking. There are never quite enough weekends spent away, relaxing and enjoying the warm and the sunlight.

Fingers crossed for a warm September.

So not only do I want to rip those shoes right off of you to wear myself, but they're so great that you'd have to compliment me as I walk away wearing them.

Weekends of napping are really the bees knees.

And, I'm loving this outfit – you're so bright and colorful, but the leather shorts really break up the candy colors. I think this is my favorite leather shorts look of your so far.

You're right, it was a great setting! It sounds like you had a great weekend in the country too. It's going to be sad when summer's over. I am looking forward to fashion week though, are you going? It would be nice to meet up!

ah! only you could pull off leather shorts and a polo shirt. you look so great (i am always in awe of your outfits), as usual.

I really do adore this look!

As for summer being over: my husband has already had all his vacation time, so it sort of is already over for me (husband at home = break for me from doing all the parenting). Then again, it still is so lovely out and will be until the end of Sept…so really, summer continues!

Oh, and I have some leather pants that you keep inspiring me to turn into shorts…just can't decide for keeps!
