Last Monday was a very laid back day. I spent the day hanging out with the little one doing errands and playing in the yard. I wore these comfy cut off shorts with a t-shirt and sandals for most of the day. The intense desert sun always shocks me this time of year, so I’m constantly wearing my panama hat.
All year long I look forward to late spring and summer. There is something so special about lounging in the yard with the little one and hanging out at the club (see our tennis day) that the other seasonal activities can’t match.
The official start of summer is rapidly approaching and the temperatures are nearing the nineties. While that seems crazy hot, it’s actually not too bad since it’s dry heat. Nonetheless, the little one and I have started carrying spray bottles with us everywhere to help us cool off. We spritz each other and make a fun game out of it everywhere we go. People we don’t even know will stop us and tell us what a good idea it is, so I guess we don’t look too ridiculous. Nonetheless, it works and that’s how we manage to be outside even in the ninety degree heat all summer.
Cut off shorts are one of my favorite items for casual summer days. They instantly make an outfit look laid-back. This orange pair really pops when paired with all white. They are corduory, which is a fun change from the typical denim cut off shorts. They’re one of those great inexpensive items form Forever 21 that can withstand rough wear year after year.
