Warm Colors

30th July 2012

Most of my weekend was spent relaxing.  My “big” plans were shopping for a new sofa (okay, this IS what old age looks like) and watching the Olympics.  I wore this outfit out to lunch and to furniture stores.  I love warm colors because they make me think of the leaves changing color in the fall.  I decided that if I start to wear fall-like clothing, I can will the season into existence.  Exhibit A: warm colors and a scarf.  For some reason, it’s still going to be 90 degrees today….

Denim on Denim

29th July 2012

Friday night was fantastic.  We threw some fish on the grill and watched the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics.  I couldn’t stay awake long enough to see them announce the  US, though.  Sadly, I think I only made it to the Ns.  Is this what old age looks like?

This is what I wore (until I got too tired and put on sweatpants).  These shorts are Genetic Denim, which I LOVE.  I honestly don’t know how they get their fabric so soft, but every other jean company should be stealing their secret.  I think this pair is about two sizes too big which makes them extra comfortable.  I also have them in just plain ol’ blue denim; same size, same fit, which means I get the “boyfriend” look without having to cut up a pair of my boyfriend’s jeans.  It’s a win-win.
