Ice cream run

Since it's summer now, walking to the center of town for ice cream shall be a regular occurrence. It's important that you walk and not drive, because there are at least 500 calories in a small serving of Phish Food...

So when I was getting dressed I thought that it was my idea to pair a rust colored top with these ikat shorts, but then I realized it was just my subconscious remembering something I'd seen in a J.Crew catalog last week.
But at least I can still take credit for the brilliant bag pairing -- a newly thrifted Coach!
I believe it's the City Bag, and I love the dual tone. So pretty.

I think I ate my weight in froyo this weekend, but tried to make up for it by walking everywhere. I love the rust with the blue. Chloe makes a perfect accessory:)

Those shorts are so cute! And I would never have thought to pair them with that color top - it looks really great.

Yum! I'm not an ice cream fan generally, but chocolate ice cream does tempt me from time to time. :)

I love going on walks to get ice cream - the exercise I get tends to negate the guilt I feel over my indulgence :) Josh and I just discovered a new amazing ice cream shop about half a mile away, and have been visiting it several times a week lately.

I love your outfit, especially the turquoise bracelets - they really stand out against the rest of the outfit.

does walking to the freezer for ice cream count?

This is the best color combination ever.

I think I tell you that about once/week, but really, I mean it this time.

I've never seen a two-toned vintage Coach like that. Jealous! It will seriously go with everything.

Awe, I wish we had an ice cream parlor near us! And you get to walk to it, which is so lucky. Looks delicious. :D

Your idea or not, your outfit is too lovely~ the complementary colors are so perfect! And this "new" bag of yours is quite lovely. I hope you shared some of that ice cream with Chloe. ;D
