Lookin' Good, Jeanne Calment

Even though linen wrinkles like a Sphynx cat, it keeps a girl cool. And because walking out my front door feels more or less like stepping into a hot tub fully clothed, I could look like I'm wearing a supercentenarian and I wouldn't care, as long as it didn't make me any hotter than I already am. Today, I had the luxury of getting dressed because 1. I had office hours on campus and thus had to see other human beings; 2. my jean shorts are starting to keep their shape even after I take them off, and it's beginning to alarm me.

Ha, ha ... I know what you mean about the luxury of getting dressed. I sometimes work from home & getting dressed is a dragged out process, in which I am usually fully dressed by about 10-11am ...

Linen's wrinkles are the kind that are there but you don't see them! You look so elegant and "fresh"!

Was in your town very briefly this week and WOWZA. Much worse than MKE. My glasses (and Adam's camera lens) fogged up the minute we stepped outside.

That said, you look fabulous! Very chic.

1. Nobody minds your wrinkles, I promise.
2. Jean shorts are fab and pretty sturdy... I think it's okay if they keep their shape... at least that is what I tell myself.
3. (an extra for good measure) I really love that skirt!

Hahaha, Sphynx cat.

Can you believe we're having such a high heat index in the midwest? For Chicago it's 110 today. Crazytown.

But I love linen wrinkles and all- so classic summer. And so vintage vibe...wear the wrinkles proudly.

I'm so glad office hours gave you an excuse to blog this outfit b/c it's adorable!! I didn't expect to see much of you during move time, but lucky for selfish me, responsibilities keep you out of the obligatory jean shorts every once in awhile ;)
