My style always gets a little lazy in the summer. I make myself feel better about it by using words like carefree, easy, and simple; but what we have here is a slept-in ponytail and a cotton dress that’s as comfy as a nightgown, friends.
Give me all the breezy dresses and flip flops through August, please.
Today, on the heels of my I-don’t-want-to-post-photos-of-my-outfits post, I give you… A photo of my outfit.
I’m a complicated woman.
Today was one of those days that was supposed to be like any other Thursday, but unexpectedly turned into an awesome one.
My baby brother called me at the shop late yesterday afternoon to invite me to his 5th grade graduation this morning. My day started bright and early at his elementary school, choked up and weirdly emotional about the whole thing: slideshows with cute kids and good music are my kryptonite; I can’t believe he’s going to middle school; I wish I had more time to spend with him; and, really, he may as well be going to college.
I’m so grateful that I was able to be there. Time is going way too fast!
When I cruised into the shop sometime around noon, my superstar staff had it under all kinds of control, so I gave myself the rest of the afternoon off. I took a few deliveries, did a little shopping with some LOFT cash cards that were burning a hole in my wallet, bought myself a copy of Sophia Amoruso’s new book, #GIRLBOSS, found a great full-length floor mirror for the hacienda, and now I’m sitting in a burrito joint mainlining queso and blogging from my iPhone. With nowhere to be, no deadlines to meet, and limitless iced tea refills.
