Hot Shorts

I call this my Texas outfit this Spring because I wore it when we visited Dallas 6 weeks ago and then again this weekend when I visited my family in South Texas. I first wore it to hang out with friends and their darling 2 year-old twins.  Their mommy was so funny and she said, "Oh, look at you! You look so clean and shiny. I promise you won't look like that when you leave!" but the boys weren't at all interested in me and they spent all their time playing with their toys in the backyard.  Then I repeated this exact same outfit to avoid passing out from heat exhaustion while I spent time with my mom running errands and eating my favorite foods (hello, tamales!) while I could.  And when I returned to the Bay to a heat wave, I knew it was perfect to wear it again. As summer gets closer, I rely more and more on the knits in my closet.  This top I found at Heavenly Couture in town several weeks ago. I love knit tops because they are fairly inexpensive and I don't mind when they inevitably develop tiny holes in the weaved fabric or the seams start to pull apart and I have to toss them at the end of the season.  I love this pretty color and the easy way it drapes over my curves. I paired it with rose gold jewelry to stay in the pink tone family.

Necklace: BaubleBar (option)

  1. Looks comfortable and fun! I'm in the market for a swimsuit, which I have not shopped for since that cruise we went on together! If you can incorporate swimwear into a future post, especially since summer is just around the corner, I would certainly be interested in your "finds" and feedback.



Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
