Garden Gal:

      For some, August may feel like the end of summer. However, Summer seems to last a bit longer in Northern California. It seems like the air is still hot and the heat continues well into the evening here in Santa Cruz. I've been lucky enough to enjoy a few more meals in my backyard while the weather holds up too! After posting this polyvore set featuring a pair of red shorts, I couldn't resist putting together a similar look for myself. Crisp colored shorts and a practical (and easily washable) denim vest bib, make for a stylish and simple outdoor dining ensemble. 

(Although I took these photos a few days ago, I actually harvested and pan fried this bell pepper today and it was delicious. The smell of bell pepper was so prevalent in my kitchen the moment I sliced it!)

Hat- Marshall's Men's Department, Sunglasses- Ray Ban, Pretzel Brooch-

How are you savoring the last bits of Summer?



  1. Nice garden :-).
    I love your outfit. I really like denim vests and the brooche is so cute.


  2. Awww I wish it still were "last days of summer", here the autumn seems to be going on fully ;p.
    Those peppers look yummy. I need an own garden too! Our iguana would appreciate home grown fresh stuff too! ;)

  13. I am back in the city (Athens), spending my nights near the sea, drinking cocktails.

    Lovely photos and garden!

  14. You look's not warm enough for shorts here, haha!! But you look fabulous...have a super weekend xx

  15. I like how your post is like a tour of your outfit and a tour of your garden at the same time.

  16. I really feel like I've not enjoyed my summer. It went by all too quickly and was especially humid in Chicago this year.

  17. Love this outfit! I could never pull those short shorts off, but you look great in them!

  18. Hello, gorgeous :) How are you? I'm sorry I've been MIA lately, I've had some major changes happening in my life, and blog networking was sadly left a little bit behind :( But now I'm back, and loving your outfit so so much! Since I'm no longer in school, I don't see the August / September transition so dramatically. Plus, next week I'm leaving for a week trip to Italy, so the end of summer doesn't concern me just yet :) I hope everything is well with you, and I promise to write you once I'm back from my holiday!

    Have a great Labor Day!

  19. I wish we could throw a dinner party together too! Preferably with cafe lights adorning your adorable patio area because who doesn't love a great display of cafe lights? Your garden/patio have challenged me to step up our game for next spring!

  20. You are very trendy!!! Love the outfit and the pics! Have a new follower, big kiss, Maira

  21. These shoes are fabulous! I'm savoring the light of summer while I can! We'll be in the dark depths of winter before you know it! Ok, I need to not think about that or I might freak out a little. I'm also savoring homegrown tomatoes while I can!

  22. Love the outfit! And your legs, too!
