Just Pretend It's Cool

Land's End Blouse (thrifted)
Old Navy Shorts and Hat (shorts thanks to a b-day gift card.)
Minnetonka Leather Sandals (thrifted)
Elephant Bag (thrifted)

It was really hot.  The heat returned over the past few days and while the fires that have been threatening everyone are staying down, the heat really bits.  Whew, 70-75 degrees is right about the top of my comfort zone.

These really are not my best photos.  The lighting was really tricky and I kept getting the light arcs in the photo so they're pretty "meh" today.  I need to work more on shooting in difficult lighting, it's kind of useless to only be able to take pictures in "perfect" light.  Nothing like being a half baked photographer.


  1. I'm kind of jealous of how good you look in shorts. Seriously. I love this look. Perfect shorts and those sandals are fabulous.

  2. these shorts are amazing and I love the colour combo!

  3. I wanna see more pictures of the elephant bag! Looks so cool!

  4. Half baked photographer aside, I love the outfit. The color of your top matches your hair and it looks stunning :P

  5. Half baked photographer...haha!
    Well I still enjoy these photos, because man, those print shorts are spectacular! I love a good printed pair :) I think I'll have to make a stop at Old Navy today...

  6. Those light streaks drive my husband crazy when he's trying to take pictures. Let's just say they're artsy :-) I mean, if we're pretending that it's cool outside we might as well pretend other things, right?

  7. Ha, I feel like the lighting is NEVER right in my photos - what is the secret?! Anyway, I love those shorts - they look amazing on you!

  8. katie, i really like the photos! what does that say about me? i want to see the shoes better. i'm pretty sure they would make me jealous, and you thrifted them too. girl, you don't know hot until you experienced a summer in texas. total sweat meltdown.

  9. i lik really like the colours in this outfit. the earthy brick blouse goes nicely with your shorts. love the pattern on them. I hate tricky lighting situations, it's so frustrating when pictures don't turn out. I think these ones you took are pretty good, i like the light leaks!

  10. Love the colours in this outfit. I'm a sucker for slimmer bottoms and looser tops. Plus a hat? I'm in!
