Summer Stripes





My Threads: Top: GoJane, Shorts: Marshalls, Shoes: Ross, Bag: Kenneth Cole Reaction

As difficult as it was to tear ourselves away from the Olympics this weekend, Marc and I did manage to make it to Griffith Park for a picnic, and to Pasaadena for a concert. Since it's been in the 90s here lately, I grabbed for shorts and a tank...again.

I got these shorts for less than $10 at Marshalls, and I plan on wearing them like crazy for the rest of the summer. And all of fall. Don't you love finding clothes you connect with on a deep level? Ok, maybe the shorts and I connect on more of a physical level, but I'm pretty sure it's still love. 

Have you been watching the Olympics all weekend? The athletes are amazing, but I have to say, they don't do much for the ego. Watching sixteen-year-olds with six packs win gold medals all day makes you feel sort of bad about just sitting on the couch. How did we attempt to solve this problem? By doing sit-ups while we watched. I recommend it. You'll feel ready to do a back handspring on a beam immediately. 

Happy (ha) Monday! Let Michael Phelps' abs help get you through the day.

  7. This! I love this outfit - and I love when neutrals all come together and still look summery!

    I also love the Olympics and the "flippy girls" as my husband calls the gymnasts!
