A few things happened while taking these pictures:
1. A swarm of mosquitos found me.
They were certainly unwelcome guests and reminded me of one of the things I’m looking forward to about Fall: fewer bugs. The only time I don’t mind bugs is when I’m camping or hiking, and I actually really like to do both of those things, but when I’m in a skirt and heels, bugs beware!
2. I realized that I couldn’t fit into this skirt at the beginning of the summer.
Well, that certainly makes me smile. All those hours running are paying off, even if it is slow and steady and I’ve felt like I hit more plateaus than easy times. Still a ways to go, but proud of the efforts paying off. Feeling healthy is worth sweating!
3. I discovered that my selection of “statement necklaces” is pretty wimpy.
I’m linking up with Marion Berry Style today for the trend of the month challenge: Statement Necklaces! Psh, I (tentatively, casually, haltingly) call myself a personal style blogger, and here I am parading around without one of the years trendiest pieces? Don’t judge me. At least I have this fun bubble necklace, right?
Me, laughing at myself.
I’ve been wanting to put together monochromatic outfits a lot lately, but resisted pairing this top and necklace with my paper bag-waist coral shorts. You’re welcome. But now I kind of want a slice of watermelon…
