This is the weirdest summer ever! It is mid-August and supposed to be the hottest time of the year - and here we are shivering from the cold! I am considering to pull out my woolen sweaters from the storage to keep warm. Unbelievable!
In addition this week was rainy and gloomy - often felt more like mid-November than mid-August. I needed colors and white to cheer up myself!

#1 This one is for Suz
Pairing my new KUT plaid jeans from NAS with my orange silk shirt from Costco. How do you like it with the jeans? It is interesting that I like this bright orange with the muted plaid of these jeans but that bright yellow blazer from #3 does not work to my eye. Colors are so unpredictable!

#2 Mini-checks and blue
I am not sure how I feel about these long mini-check shorts anymore. This is their 3rd summer and I wear them not as often as previous seasons. What is your honest opinion on them?

#3 Yellow and stripes

This Gap yellow blazer is another piece I don't wear as often as last season. Maybe I just tend to wear newer stuff more often because I got bored with the old? This blazer is also loosing its prime so very likely I will retire it after this year.

#4 Cream and blush

This is a nod to one of Angie's stunning outfits tried with Gap marled sweater.

What do you think about these Fidji nude pumps here? I am not sure about them lately. They are not as refined as what I prefer to wear now but on the other hand they have unique shape which does not say dated to me. They are also comfortable which is a big plus - but how do they look?

These are all pictures I had a chance to get this week. All comments and suggestions are appreciated!

Have a great weekend - and hopefully better summer weather than we are having!
