Can I just say once again that I love the weekend? One of the huge (many) benefits of working is getting to enjoy a true weekend feeling. I may require big pats on the back (mostly I give these to myself*) for being a working mom and going to a stressful job every day. But it doesn't mean that I don't want to work. It's complex, ya know? But I'm grateful I get to work.
Anyway, here is what I am wearing today. We're spending most of the weekend going back and forth to our local storytelling festival, and the weather is perfect today. Warm enough for shorts and a tee, but not too hot.
I have a lot of thoughts/questions about wearing shorts at my age. My main thought is that I don't want to give them up because it gets hot here in the warmer months. But I have an eye toward going for some longer, knee-length shorts pretty soon. I may not be fully appropriate in these shorter shorts, but I also like being myself and not sticking to closely to the rules.
tee: J. Crew
shorts: L.L. Bean Signature
belt: Gap (years ago)
necklace: a cherished gift from my dear friend Carrie. It's vintage.
*Next weekend Carrie and I are meeting for a friend-weekend in Covina, and we'll be doing this.
PS--also, if you live in/near Covina, please leave comments with your suggestions. Would love to hear about any "local" spots.
