What I Wore Sunday, June 16, 2013
- Black and beige striped top: Maurices
- Khaki Twill Shorts: JC Penney
- Black cami
- Black Knotted Wedge Heels: Maurices
- Gold Leaf Necklace: Lia Sophia
- Navy Blue Ruffle Skirted Bathing Suit: Monokinisuits.com (PS: $37.99)
First, I took a four mile run this morning; I’ve decided that to run in the south, I need to run naked. Not really, but holy moly, I was a sweaty mess. Then I put on that bathing suit and spent hours in the sand and in the waves, chasing boys and things blowing in the sand. I also wore at that time a fine layer of sand across my skin as the wind really whipped the sand up and everywhere. Also add in some salt and possibly a bit of an adult beverage that I spilled on myself at one point while trying to jump out of the way of a soccer ball. Tips about that bathing suit: They are Asian shipped and sized. I bought an extra large and it fits like the medium I bought from Albion Fit this summer as well. That said, I need this mint, black and white bathing suit and this red and white polkadot monokini. The prices are ridiculously awesome, by the way.
Then I showered all the salt and sand and sweat off of every inch of my body and changed into my evening outfit for the day. My uncle’s family hosted dinner tonight across the street in their beach house: steaks and potatoes and all that jazz to honor the fathers in our lives — all of whom rank well above awesome. The back of the top is sheer and partially backless.
And those shorts, let me tell you, are a dream. I got them at JC Penney on what was my first trip into the store since the big redo, what, a year or two ago. They’re actually JCP brand and they’re a steal of a deal, let me tell you. I got them for $12/pair on sale, and I got the khaki/biscotti color, the royal blue/verve violet color and the french turquoise geometric print. I haven’t enjoyed shorts this much since high school. They just fit like a dream.
I also wore: the relaxed smile of a Jenna on vacation. I will be wearing that the rest of the week as well. It’s my favorite accessory.
