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.
