A Chance of Afternoon Showers

top: 70s cotton eyelet camisole (see it bigger)
shorts: Urban Outfitters
shoes: thrifted
purse: vintage Coach
belt: thrifted

So far this has been such a mellow summer. None of those so-hot-I-can't-think days of sweaty necks and unbearable sunshine when you just want to crawl into an icebox and take a siesta. Just lots of mild, cloudy days and almost cool nights. We've barely even run our AC! But today the mugginess set in and the air was heavy with humidity. We stopped to take a couple of photos on our walk back from buying fruits and veggies at the Farmers Market and the sky started spitting a little afternoon shower. Even as I write this I can still hear the drops pinging on our tin roof. It's making me a bit drowsy so I better get to work on that pile of dresses that needs to be mended for this week's shop update.

P.S. We're heading out to see The Half Blood Prince tonight. I'm such a Harry Potter nerd. Anyone seen it already? Did you like it?

If you call yourself a Harry Potter nerd, I'm right with you. I still haven't seen the movie yet and it's killing me! Regardless, your look is wonderful. You're such a pretty girl. xo

Ann said...

i'm dreaming of summers like that...here in socal it's not the same. i'm dying to hang around in a cotton cami in a garden as the afternoon thundershowers gather. mmmmm.

I saw it yesterday, and it was actually very good! The effects and sets are way better than the previous ones, and of course the plot is a little different (but that was to be expected). But the stand out was definitely the acting. Tom Felton brought it, and the other kids were much improved.

Harry Potter was good but it was also really sad ( won't spoil the plot for you in case you haven't read it..)
also they added random bits in which wern't in the book, it was kinda wierd...

Wow - lucky you (about the weather)! It's been hot and muggy here almost every day. Then again, it's Hong Kong, so what else did I expect?

Love the shorts.
