These silk bermuda shorts have quickly become my summer favorite.  I really like the flowy silk and the longer length.  Maybe I am getting old or maybe I am just too picky (or looking in the wrong place), but I’m really unimpressed with the shorts offerings this summer.  Everything seems too short.  And too tight.  Anything that doesn’t fit into the above category seems to be made of cotton.  Which inevitably wrinkles…quickly.  I think that’s why this Club Monaco pair is in such high rotation.  They are the polar opposite of everything I mentioned above.  And perhaps, in a way,  they are my own personal protest against the summer parade of daisy dukes and hot shorts.

Another day, another pencil skirt

This is one of my favorite morning rituals – sitting outside in our small orchard and drinking a cup of tea.  Even though the dogs didn’t make in into any of today’s photos, they are always around 🙂  I think I set up a scavenger hunt for them before taking these photos (I hide treats all over they yard – they have to sniff them out – it’s keeps them quite occupied!).
