A Faux Summer Fairy Tale

It’s funny how when temperatures rise above 80 degrees in SF, everyone goes a little wild. People are out about town on weeknights… sipping cocktails, and wearing skimpy little summer things. It’s like we’re in the Bahamas or something… like a full-fledged tropical summer. After record breaking low temperatures, we’re ready to take our lemons and make some friggen lemonade (with vodka, in our case).

Crochet, while much more fitting for summer than fall, has quickly become one of my favorite trends… that along with leather, velvet, and sheer things. When I spotted these crochet booty shorts (yes, they’re that tiny) on Urban 1972, I put practicality aside and decided they must be mine! I sort of feel like a little kid when I wear these shorts, and I think that’s what I like best about them.

Wow. 80 degrees in Oct? We’re pretty close that too. Maybe 75. I’m pretty happy about that though – didn’t want it to be cold for Halloween.

Your first picture reminds me of a baby doll – mainly your pose.It’s very cute and innocent. I also love the modern take on classic hippie inspired pieces.

You are totally rocking those shorts! And I don’t think they look too short on you at all. I love how you paired them with that awesome ombre baggy tee, too. It’s so fresh and unexpected (like all of your outfits), love it!
