Where Juliet Meets Shirley Jones

This morning I needed something comfortable, breathable, and appropriate for an 11am baseball game in the bald open sun. Attempting to look somewhat cute while feeling the tickle of sweat run down your back can be summed up in one worn: tricky.
Rule 1: hair must be off of neck. (I hate wearing my hair in a ponytail, so, in turn, I hate this personal rule)
Rule 2: must wear sleeveless so farmer's tan does not ensue.
Rule 3: feet must be able to breathe
When I was trying to decide where to take pictures I thought BANANAS and then kept pronouncing it like Rachel Zoe: ba. na. nas.
Blouse: Goodwill (added the leather string instead of it having stringed netting)
Shorts: Old Navy circa 2003... yep.
Purse: Goodwill
Beaded ring: Goodwill
Bracelet: MawMawed (she crocheted it herself. All of those little bitty loops. If you can't see the picture well enough, my favorite button is shown-- it's the classic Winnie the Pooh!)
PS: I was informed this morning by two of my favorite 14-year olds that they found a look that I would not be able to pull off: emo or goth. Oh how they know so little...

  1. Imagine how many stitches it took to crochet that bracelet! Show us the underside!
