Stay-Cool Fall Casual: Black Long Shorts, Short-Sleeve Tan Sweater, Weather-Proof Tote


I like shorts on rainy days  That way, when I splash muddy puddle water, it ends up on me and not my  pants.

These shorts are a bit longer because they’re clam diggers.  They would be even longer, except that I bought them in petite to get a shorter length.  Perfect for what I wanted.

Add waterproof rain shoes, coated canvas bag, and an umbrella, and I am ready for whatever our (hot) fall weather brings. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
