bring out the short shorts.

Friday, July 22, 2011

It has been 40,000 degrees in the 100s here in Chicago. The hot weather has done wonders for my productivity. I don't want to go anywhere + work all day and night. True Story. I have been able to enjoy the balcony when temps drop down to the high 80s at midnight.

With these high temps, pants are just not an option. I actually haven't worn jeans in over a month. The thought of a dress makes me uncomfortable. It's all about the shorts.


All J. Crew sale items are an extra 40% off right now!


Stay cool. And if you haven't done it already...sign the sun savvy pledge.
Wear your SPF + have a great weekend!

  5. It's actually been unseasonably cool here in Northern California (high 80s to mid 90s) for most of the summer. So I feel your guys' pain. All the different colored denim and paper bag silhouettes has made it an excited shorts season though. Love the rainbow chinos, I wish J.Crew made plus sizes, or at least extended their range a little larger so I could get in on the fun.

  6. Love the first ones! I can't do paper bag waists, but those last pleated ones are pretty cool... it's roasting here, as well, can't remember the last day I wore sleeves or pant legs!

  11. LOVE j.crew shorts! They fit so well and you can actually get them long enough to cover your booty! Hands down, the best part :)

    I despise this brutally hot weather. I am ready for fall!

  12. Looking at this post makes me realize I may be a little too J.Crew short happy. I own 2 of number 1, 1 of number 2 and am currently considering purchasing that riviera short!

    This heat is most definitely unbearable! it needs to end.

  13. I HATE this heat- basically just hide inside all day. I love these pics- especially the ikat and lace ones...sadly post kids, my legs are not cute enough for such short numbers- pretty much stick to skirts on these gross hot days.
