Hello from beautiful Indiana where the summer livin’ is … cool! I’m back in my old stomping grounds for a week or so before moving on to Chicago for wedding number two of the summer. The weather here is supposed to be in the 60s and 70s all week — basically my ideal summer.

Also ideal for summer? Stripes. My striped tees have been getting quite the workout this season. And new to my wardrobe: the perfect linen shorts (so perfect, in fact, that I bought both olive and black). 

Happy Monday!

Channeling the 70s

For the farmers market on Sunday, I made the not-so-smart decision to wear a maxi dress. It was crazy hot and crazy humid, and I definitely would have been better off with shorts. But we must suffer for the sake of fashion, right? I do love this maxi, particularly when paired with a big floppy hat (the ideal sun protection) and a straw bag (the perfect bag for picking up produce at the market).

Beating the heat

Welcome back from the long weekend! How was your Fourth of July? Mine was packed; my friends and I headed to a huge festival on Friday and came back to the city just as dusk hit — and seeing the fireworks across Omaha was amazing. Then we celebrated my friends’ new house with a luau housewarming party.

We had a huge heatwave hit yesterday, and other than going to the pool, the only way to beat the heat is to wear a dress. This one is perfect because it has a slightly open back and is above the knee — everything I need to try to keep cool in the humidity we’ve been having lately.

We’ve had the perfect summer weather here in Omaha lately. Yesterday, the high only reached 72, and Liz, Jeni and I took advantage of the break in heat to catch Shakespeare on the Green (you can see pics on my Instagram). We packed a cooler full of cheese, crackers, olives, chocolate and wine and spent last night watching the complete works of Shakespeare (abridged). It was hilarious, and if you ever get the chance to experience something like that in your city, take advantage!

After tearing my last black maxi skirt and being without one for a couple of years, I finally found one at Target that was both inexpensive but well-fitting. Score! And Old Navy lately has been killing it in the graphic tee department. 

I’ll see you on the flip side of the long weekend. Happy Independence Day!

Happy Monday to all! How was your weekend? I’ve so enjoyed having my mom visit Omaha for a week. We explored the downtown farmers market, caught a movie, watched World Cup soccer and more.

I might or might not have worn a very similar outfit (see here) — after scouring the local Targets for the blue version. It was just too good to pass up again and is the ideal fabric for summer: light and lightweight. Plus I can’t say no to stripes in the summer! Admit it: You can’t either.
