I had a ton of work and errands to do today, so I wanted to be up and out when the husband went to work. The weather is 20 degrees cooler than is was last Monday - can you believe it? Now, it's in the the low 70's. Guess that's all we're getting for summer.

Anyway, I digress ... in light of the weather and the busy-ness, I just wanted to keep it relaxed, but pulled together.

My favorite Wilco tee from the best concert EVER hadn't seen the light of day for months, so I threw is on with a pair of drapey white linen pants (JCP, $18). It doesn't get much more relaxed than that.

I threw the safari jacket (thrifted, $2) on for just a little more comfort and a hint of shape in the waist. Studded sandals (Ross, $9), silver jewelry and Ray-Bans were the perfect finishing touches.

I'll be working my tail off this week. I've got a couple of orders to get done before the the zaniness gets started. On Thursday, I'll be a carnie for a week. I'll tell you more about that later. And then, after the fair, I'm heading to NYC for a long weekend. Can't freakin' wait!
