Jewel Tones

Warehouse blouse, F21 shorts and jewelry, Michael Kors bag, Steve Madden sandals,
sunglasses


One would think that lace sleeves would be somewhat cool in the hot summer months. Not so. If it is made of polyester (lace or not) there is no way it can be cool. With that aside, this is a pretty fun outfit, and I love these two bright jewel tones together.

I finished up a two-week teaching stint last week and it will be good to just relax for the next week. I think I might just take this week to read some books, magazines, and catch up on my blog reading.
