These silk bermuda shorts have quickly become my summer favorite.  I really like the flowy silk and the longer length.  Maybe I am getting old or maybe I am just too picky (or looking in the wrong place), but I’m really unimpressed with the shorts offerings this summer.  Everything seems too short.  And too tight.  Anything that doesn’t fit into the above category seems to be made of cotton.  Which inevitably wrinkles…quickly.  I think that’s why this Club Monaco pair is in such high rotation.  They are the polar opposite of everything I mentioned above.  And perhaps, in a way,  they are my own personal protest against the summer parade of daisy dukes and hot shorts.

I quickly took these photos last Saturday before attending a friend’s wedding.  It was the first time since early June that I had attempted heels and I was determined to make it work,  Unfortunately, even a minimal amount of walking proved too much & I reluctantly changed into flats after the ceremony.  Too much too soon…

I am slowly trying to fill gaps in my closet - for example, I finally purchased a plain white button-down shirt last week {this one}.  These flats were bought in March as part of the same initiative.  A beige shoe is a nice neutral that can be paired with almost anything :)
