11 Jun Turning Heads Linkup – New Summer Casual Look – Denim Shorts and Top from Loft
One staple I am happy to wear this summer is the denim short. There are plenty of lengths available, from these 4 inch denim rolled shorts, to a longer style closer to the knee. It’s all about personal comfort. I bought these lighter wash jean shorts from Loft, when mom cam to visit and we did a bit of shopping.
“Bewarre of Snakes” read the sign near Turtle Bay, where we shot photos that day. Lately I have been! We have encountered a few black snakes near the deck and one down by the nature trail, as my hubby cautiously pulled the doggies out of the way. Some times I am going along my merry way, and I don’t notice things off the bat! So, my neighbor showed a picture of a rather lonnnnnnnnnnnnnng snake, off white with brown detailing, as the neighbors at the corner, had killed it the day before. Oh, Lord! That is scary! I really am not a fan of creepy crawly insects or snakes, so now my eyes are peeled!
Ladies, not that getting a mammogram itself is a funny thing but..
I went to put on my “gown”, actually more of a “napkin” to be exact and remembered last year it would come down past my knees. Today, it was more of a “shirt” as I fastened the gown, realizing I would walk out in my underwear, as it was about as long as my waistline! They must be cutting back,” I thought.
I discreetly asked if the robes were supposed to be like this, only having worn a dress to get my mammogram. I noticed other ladies were wearing pants, and it wasn’t an issue. A woman, about 5 foot tall, said, They need to make gowns for tall people. ” So, I got a good chuckle and laughed a the thought of me in my wrapped shirt and undies heading to the mammogram. Instead, the technician spared my embarrassment and told me just to wear my dress in!
First, if you are hankerin” for another summer dress, I wore a rust maxi dress yesterday on the blog and spoke about how accessories can make the look.
You gotta shop at LOFT when there is a sale, which is often! I bought two blouses and 2 pairs of denim shorts, one in a light pair and one in a dark wash, all 40% off! There is always a sale! I am enamored with the color combination of blush pink and olive. So pretty! They have the top I am wearing, in a few sizes. My shorts are on sale, and they have lighter and darker styles.
My other blouse has a dark pine green background with blush pink and olive flowers and greenery. I will also style these blouses with my olive linen pants for the summer. This has to be my favorite neutral shade of the season. In chillier temps, I also have a pink moto jacket I could wear in the Spring,. Wear this top, skinny jeans and the pink moto and you have a beautiful color combo for Spring. I know Summer is Officially June 21st, but it’s hot enough now, so shorts and dresses are in order.
I’ve had these platform slides by Seychelle from Soft Surroundings gifted to me last year, and they are cushioned and perfect for those slip-on shoe days in the summer months. My pink/peachy Balenciaga bag went perfectly with the flowers in this top.I chose dusty pink statement earrings from Mango to add to the color scheme.
Loft is a virtual floral wonderland right now, so if you love florals and pretty colors you should pop by. After shopping at Marshalls with my mom the other day, we both realize why I shop online! More inventory, sizes and the ease of shopping. My feet hurt after walking around aimlessly in the store. So, don’t be afraid to shop online more, especially once you know your size at that store. I think I have done most of my Spring and Summer shopping at Loft and Mango this year
