I don't know if it is me being exceedingly lazy or if it is because it has actually been really hot here lately, but I have been wearing a whole slew of outfits incorporating shorts. Since I have a definite love/hate affair with these leg-showing garments, I vacillate between wanting to wear them all the time in summer and wanting to burn them all at the stake and only wear dresses and skirts for the rest of my life. :)
But before I begin the outfit parade, I want to announce the winner of the Stella and Dot giveaway (from this post). And the lucky lady/man to receive the beautiful blue/gold Bahari necklace is: PEGGY! Random.org picked #6 (of 14 discrete entries, there were 15, but one of those was a repeat by a blog friend). I counted #1 as the earliest entry and #14 as the last entry, and the #6 spot was Peggy's entry.
Peggy, Rachel will be in contact with you soon! For everyone else, I am nearing 1000 blog posts, so do expect the giveaway party to begin again when I hit that number. ;)
Okay, let the shorts short stories begin:
Info on the pieces in the picture. I last wore the antique paisley shorts here, and the silk flower top here.
Invitation Clutch in Dot still available.)
I last wore this sequined sweatshirt here (I guess it is still my mommy go-to!).
I wore this navy/red/white combo on Thursday, for bowling. For those of you following along in my bowling league endeavors, my score vastly improved. Dottie and I are still the low scorers on the league, but Dottie (who has to be 90 if she is a day) still kicks my butt, with her average a good seven points higher than mine. I would like to think all the sweet older ladies on the league aren't laughing at me, but I kind of am okay if they are. ;) (BTW, I think they tolerate my awful scores because Angus is so cute. Without Angus, I am sure I would get the proverbial ax.)
I last wore the shirt here (so very pregnant).
For those of you who are curious about the Mila dot-print ballet flats, they fit true to size and are utterly adorable. :)
All of these pieces are pretty old, especially the shorts, which are from Fall 2009. I wish J. Crew still made 4 inch inseam shorts. I also really like these because they are made from a suiting fabric and are lined.
The space-dyed cardigan was last worn here, btw.
Okay, that's it, ladies and gents. I hope the rest of your Sunday is fabulous!
And once again, congratulations to Peggy!
