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.
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!).
I loved the look of this SheInside dress online, however when it arrived, it was WAY to short. Even my most daring self could not pull off such a short dress (keep in mind I am nearly 6’ tall). Instead, it has been re-purposed as a top. The quality is pretty decent for the price (I find SheInside can be hit-or-miss with regards to quality).
As someone who doesn’t particularly like wearing the color red (I think it makes my face look too flush), I am always perplexed about what to wear on Canada Day (July 1). This year I opted for a white dress with a reddish purse & I am quite happy with the results 🙂
I have spent the last week feeling guilty about not updating the blog, so last night I finally managed to take a few quick pictures in the backyard. As you can see, I am still side-lined due to my ankle sprain…2+ weeks and counting… That being said, I am acutely aware that there are far worse things than a sprain and crutches, so I am trying to count my blessings and take this all in stride.
I have been making a conscious effort to try and hide my leg/ankle as much as possible (despite the racing-stripe tape job, I highly doubt anyone wants to see my swollen and bruised leg). Maxi skirts and loose linen pants have been in high rotation.
