Stay-Cool Fall Casual: Black Ann Taylor Shorts, Short-Sleeve Brooks Brothers Sweater, Land’s End Tote

Brooks-Brothers-Sweater-And-Blouse-Black-Ann-Taylor-Shorts

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

P.S. When I grabbed the coated-canvas bag, I wasn’t thinking about the fact it was monogrammed, just like my tortoise cuff.  It’s a bit overkill to have two items with such large monograms in one outfit.  One is better.
