Sailor Take Warning (See Jane Wear)

Anthropologie shirt, H&M striped tank, J Crew (thrifted) shorts, Dolce Vita sandals, Ray Ban retro cat sunglasses
As promised on Friday, I didn't do much this weekend.  I actually ended up feeling a little under the weather which was ironic (or cruel, I can't decide) as it was the most beautiful weekend we've had in months.  I had grand plans of working on some wedding crafts, but ended up laying around most of the time (although, I did force myself to lay around outside when it was 80 yesterday).

Eric and I went to meet with our wedding officiant on Sunday for brunch and this is what I threw on.  You have no idea how nice (and unfamiliar) it felt to grab a pair of shorts and a tank top.  Don't worry, though, the cold weather is already making its way back in to the windy city.


How was your weekend?

It was GORGEOUS this weekend, right? And now it's pouring and temps are dropping as we speak. I love your bright shorts; they're adorable and your nude sandals are fantastic.

I love this outfit, Anna! I have a really similar pair of J Crew shorts that I bought a few months ago and I haven't had a chance to wear them yet because it's been so cold. I hear we're supposed to have a warm weekend coming up though, so I'm excited to break them out.

Tracy said...

sounds like california. It was warmer yesterday with sunshine now its chilly and sunless and tomorrow it will snow... haha I like your comfy outfit Jane!

RosaLovesDC said...

You look fabulous! Those shorts are super cute and the color is so gorgeous on you.

Ashley said...

Love the outfit- stripes are my thing all year long, but there's something very satisfying about breaking out a sailor stripe in the spring!

It was super warm in Kansas City this weekend, so my fiance and I spent much of it outside- we've undertaken a huge landscaping project, and the weather allowed us to make a pretty good dent in the manual labor. :)

April said...

Such a bummer that you felt ill...but you look great in your pictures! Completely agree on the feeling-strange-in-summer-clothes bit! All of Sunday it felt as if I needed to wear a jacket; not because of the weather, just out of habbit!

Amber's Notebook said...

You are just adorable! And I love your sandals! I'm such a sucker for nautical looks.

christine donee said...

Terribly jealous, it did NOT get that warm here! This is such a cute outfit, I'm sure you're not surprised to hear me say that as my opinions on nautical themed clothing...I hope the meeting with your officiant went well!! Are you and Eric writing any of your own vows or anything?? You're getting so close!!
