The Mildest July

Jacket: J.Crew Factory // Tank: Gap (old, but similar here) // Shorts: J.Crew 5" in Dusty Thistle - on sale! (I cuffed them once here.) // Necklace: Dogeared // Sandals: Jacks, of course.  On sale! Loving these and these which are also on sale and, wow guys, I could buy them all!

We are having the mildest July ever here in southwest Ohio.  So mild that I've been picking jeans up and digging for long sleeves.  I am definitely not complaining though! It's been so nice out - such a great break from our usual midsummer mug.

These J.Crew chino shorts are some of my summer favs.  I love the 4" ones but found these last night on a sale rack for $10.  I also bought a white pair in a size a little too loose but figured I'd tuck a shirt in, add a belt, and make do.  For ten bucks I could make a lot work.  When I went to college I made a promise to myself that I would never buy J.Crew solid chino shorts that cost me more than $20.  Part challenge, part "I truly believe I can get them this cheap" and trust me, I don't want for J.Crew shorts.  I have plenty.  A whole rainbow full.
The necklace was a bridesmaid gift from a wedding I was in last week for one of my closest and dearest friends.  Huzzah! to new beginnings but dang, I hate this ending.  So many transitions!  Trying not to think about how soon they'll be my transitions - graduating college, getting a job, blah blah blah letsnotthinkaboutit.
Of course, the watch is an oldie but goodie - a 21st birthday present that my mom loves to see me wear.  And it's not like I only wear it for her, I actually do love it.  The tortoise color has served me so well. 
Hope you all had a happy fourth! Yay FREEDOM!
