I'm officially over this winter even though it has been rather mild and sunny in comparison to previous years. I don't want to see my parka or heavy coats for another year. My legs are so pale that they glow in the dark.
I have trouble handing over wads of cash for denim cutoffs. They're essentially worn jeans or factory distressed; ripped, stretched and then snipped off. As I looked at the hordes of cutoffs available at online stores, it brought back memories of my early backpacking days when I stole my then skinny teenage brother's Levi's 501s and wore them till spring turned into summer. When I could no longer bear the heat, I borrowed a pair of scissors from the pension owner and made my own shorts. It didn't even cost me a cent.
When the weather's hot, I want my outfits to be airy, light and loose. Anything tight makes me feel like my innards are being squeezed. Since our summer days tend to be short and unpredictable, I rarely go crazy and shop up a storm. I've been mulling over my summer pieces and pretty much decided that anything I buy this year has to pull double duty. Well, other than the cut offs. What's on your summer shopping list? Do tell.
