First, an apology: I had to take today’s pics using a tripod. I’m spoiled now with my photographers, and when I’m on my own, the photos are proof I still have a lot to learn about photography.

What is it about gingham that reminds me of a picnic? I’m not a huge picnicking persion (not a fan of bugs), but I’m making an effort to enjoy summer pieces and stop wishing for fall. Even though I totally am. I tried making myself not wish summer away so quickly by remembering how truly heinous it is to get out of bed when it’s 20 degrees outside.
Can I just rant for a moment? I love being inspired by my favorite bloggers, but I’m starting to get really sick of seeing them in blazers, long pants, close-toed shoes and sweaters, when I know darn well they didn’t survive the whole day in those outfits. It’s 91 today, people. This is what I actually wore. If I pose in a blazer, I wore that blazer all day. (My office is freezing!) But pretending leather jeggings worked for summer is not realistic – it’s just ridiculous.
Ok, rant over. For now.
