Phew, that post yesterday was long, ha. This will be more normal in length.
This is what I wore the first day touring around town with visitors. I figured shorts were needed for all the walking we were doing, a tank to catch some sun, and something over top because I'm always cold. Functionality is really important to me. If I'm not comfortable in what I'm wearing then why am I wearing it? Some people will say because you make sacrifices for beauty. That's fine. Sometimes I will, but not everyday. I don't want my life to be a huge heap of sacrifices and blisters. I might not be wearing 4" clunky heels hiking through the woods, but I will wear much easier to walk in very cute moccasins. I'm sure you'll be here some day when I eat my words and wear something completely ridiculous, ha, oh well.
These photos are all a bit blown out. If they're all blown out maybe it was on purpose. Yup, that's it. Hey guys look at all these super artsy photos!
I had a feeling when I came across this wooden necklace that it would become a staple piece for me. It was a practical purchase since I knew I would wear it over and over throughout the seasons. The color palette really lends itself to most of my wardrobe and I love the feel of the wooden beads.
As far as the scalloped shorts, lets just sum it up and say I'm glad I own them. I had to run some errands before Trevor and Sarah came into town. One of the things I had to do was make some returns, which turned into exchanges in the form of these shorts. It's a good thing too. Until now I've been working with one pair of shorts. I know, ridiculous. Luckily there were a bunch of shorts I'd been eyeing on Urban Outfitters website and these were the winners.
I tend to be more about small details than loud statements. A neutral pattern and pretty scalloped edge detail is just fine by me. Look, even a little continuation of the scalloping detail on the moccasins!...maybe.

Do you tend to dress more for functionality? Or do you pull out all the stops? Blisters be damned!
