still in shorts


I know a lot of you are not only wishing for autumn, but already wearing your tights and cardigans. I like tights and cardigans as much as the next girl, but I can wait. And honestly, here in Guadalajara, it's only possible to wear a cardigan between about 8:30 and 10:30 am, and then maybe at night. I'm generally not presentable enough to be doing photoshoots at those times!

This t-shirt came free when I signed up for Guadalajara's public bicycle program. The head of the little man is actually an old-style bike, which I love. I'm a big supporter of public bicycle schemes in all cities; biking is one of the most fun ways to get exercise. I'm personally not a person who can go to the gym... it's so mind-numbingly boring. But scooting around on a bicycle, getting somewhere--that I love.

I kind of enjoy that my hair is as spiky as the plant in this picture. ; )

i wish i lived somewhere where biking was a practical mode of transportation! i used to be able to ride my bike to work but didn't so much enjoy showing up all sweaty and red-in-the-face so i kind of... stopped. i used to bike around boston in heels!

That shirt is awesome, and the shorts are super cute too! I love biking as a mode of transportation and the exercise is definitely an added bonus! My town is fairly bike friendly, and I mainly just like riding past the beach! ;) Also, if it was warm enough, I'd wear shorts year round!

SG said...

I actually like Fall. I am so ready to for summer to finish. It is been very hot here.

Per my photography knowledge, early morning provide the best light for pictures....

But these pictures are GREAT...especially the first one...combination of shade and sun..very nice.

As much as I love Autumn and cozy-ing up in layers, the days of extra warmth that sneak in every now and again are always a treat. It would be nice to get a few extra wears out of my shorts sans tights... Speaking of, the pleated shorts are lovely and look great on you! I can't remember if I've told you how much I like your oxfords. They're the perfect shade of brown.

Enjoy your last few days in Mexico with all their heat and sunshine :) Not to bum you out, but a friend of mine in England just told me it's been cool there since August...

I missed you! I remember growing up with these spiky plants, so dangerous but beautiful when it flowers. Nice shirt!

What a cute, comfy outfit! Those pleated shorts look great with a simple tee. You look so laid-back and chill. I bet the weather there is just gorgeous! It's still in the seventies and eighties here in New England, so I'm going to just hang out and enjoy it before it gets all autumn-y and crispy out. :)
