This is the perfect simple outfit for doing summery things: visiting the beach, going to the farmer's market, having a picnic in the park. Unfortunately, it's been too cold here to do any of that, and I only wore this outfit because I looked outside and saw blue sky. I kind of froze my bum off taking these pictures. I loved this outfit, but I probably should have saved it for August. (It's going to get warm in August, right Oregon?)
Do you like my tacky Mexican briefcase/purse? It even has "Mexico" embroidered at the top in case anyone wonders where I got it. Except I didn't get it in Mexico. I got it at a thrift store in North Portland. For three dollars. I think it would have cost me more in Mexico.
