Summer is Coming

Summer is almost here. Can you smell it? On this particular day I could. Summer was ALMOST within reach and then it slipped away! Darn that Bay Area weather. We get an Indian summer here so while it's not warm now I will get the last laugh! But let's talk about this dress. I bought it in Colombia and when I bought it the straps were WAY too long. So I shortened them to compliment the girls. The length is perfect for those hot summer days and I'll be wearing it out about to brunch, the Farmer's Market, to the beach, and anywhere else knee length attire is not required (aka everywhere in good ol' California).

Booty Short Shorts = BSS

I am denim obsessed this year. Can you tell? Is my denim obsession showing? Denim skits, denim jackets, denim dress, soon (hopefully) denim shorts? I have a denim jumpsuit around here somewhere. But one thing about denim shorts. Why are ALL the denim shorts so short? I'm talking Music Video Booty Short shorts (BSS). Perhaps I feel this way because I'm tall and have long legs so they look shorter on me? I'm not sure, but I feel there are not a large selection of 'normal' jean shorts out there right now and it's really frustrating because I'm not going to wear BSS every time I need to wear some jean shorts. It's just not something I'm interested it. Does anyone else feel this way?

Well I'm into the denim. I love it. It's every 90's girls dream. DENIM EVERYTHING. Remember those crazy baggy jeans everyone used to wear in the 90's? I'm so happy that phase is over. Please Fashion do not bring that back. You can keep the 90's platforms and chokers but do not bring back the awful slouchy jeans. Yuck! Find more denim goodness here
