Ikat and Chloe dog

At the moment, wearing a cardigan outdoors seems completely unfathomable. But that just goes to show you how fickle the weather can be, since on Sunday it was legitimately chilly and that cardigan was a complete necessity. I don't mind our sudden heat wave at all. I love bare legs, iced coffee, and driving in my car with the windows down and sunroof open.

Now, Chloe and I really want to be as cute as Olivia Palermo and her dog. We also wouldn't mind being repinned 180 times. Maybe you can help us out with that.

  3. Yay for your Ikat obsession, ha ha. I'm loving the look!!
    Looks like the beginning of next week will be a little chillier ;)

  4. I love your shorts! You and your dog are too adorable!

  5. Ohhhh I had not seen Chloe for a while now.
    The weather here has been hotter than usual.
    I was trying to get cold water from the faucet a few nights ago and the pipes were so hot that i just kep getting warm water.
    I like those shorts more and more every time you wear them.

  6. It's crazy that just a few days ago it was chilly enough that I did not feel at all weird carrying a cardi around with me. And now it's awful. Also, I love your longer cardi paired with the shorts.
