Every once in a while, the child that lives inside me wants to come out and play. When that happens, then I act silly, dance around the house, and sing at the top of my lungs. Believe me, you do not want to be with me when that happens. Lol! That is also when I want to go to Disney Land and ride a roller coaster. My inner child is fun, and I wish that she would come out more often.

So, when we were out driving around looking for a good spot to take photos, I stopped at this playground. Hannah, who took today’s photos, looked at me like, “really?” Lol! I hopped out and immediately started having a blast on the slide, and she grabbed a couple pics that I’ll show you below.

I love wearing linen clothing in the summer, and this blue topaz front tie linen shirt really caught my eye. The color is so pretty, and I love buying a long sleeve top and rolling up the sleeves. The makes it versatile, and I actually like the look of rolled sleeves.

The front tie is easy to tie with this shirt since it has the ties already you. I try doing this same look with a regular shirt, but the ties never look as nice as the shirts that are made to tie this way. The top is made with 55% linen/45% viscose and is dry clean only. I am wearing a size large and I love the loose fit on me. I think the shirt is on backorder, and won’t ship until July, but you can go ahead and grab it now. You don’t get billed until it actually ships.

Kendra Scott just sent me this jewelry, and I couldn’t wait to show it to everyone. I emailed them on Tuesday asking when it was going to launch so that I could give all of you the links. The mixed paracord look is so vibrant and fresh-looking, and it looks very summery. The Masie collection has several different options to choose from and three different color palettes.

The Masie Open Frame earrings and the Maise Friendship bracelet are both in mixed mint paracord, which is a strange way of saying, turquoise. I also love the coral mix paracord, and I might break down and order them. But, I think that I’ll order that color in a different style like the Masie Hoop earrings, and the Masie gold cuff bracelet. The Elisa triple strand necklace has a matching Matte Iridescent Mint Glass stone that looks great with this set.

I wear shorts a lot, and I like wearing all different styles of shorts. The thing that determines the shorts that I keep and wear is how they fit. I consider a couple of different factors such as length, leg opening, crotch comfort, and the view from the back.

My favorite inseam for me is between 5-7 inches. This white denim pair is 7 1/2″ long, and I really like the length of these. These shorts sit slightly below the waist and have the traditional 5 pocket style. The leg opening is great and isn’t too tight. Since I have large thighs, I try to stay away from anything that hugs my legs too tightly. I also don’t want my shorts to fit me too tight around the hips since that can cause issues, and your pockets won’t lie flat. Plus, if your shorts are too tight, then you are usually uncomfortable in the crotch area, and that is a big no-no.

I am wearing my usual size 30 in these shorts, so I think that they run TTS.

To finish my look, I added my Keds platform sneakers and a pair of Lilly Pulitzer sunglasses. The sneakers have become a go-to for me this summer. I love the leather, and how crisp and white they look. My other favorite pair is my Sperry Crest Vibe sneakers, but they are not leather and they get dirtier than the Keds. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these, and I think that they run TTS.

The Lucia sunglasses are an old pair that I’ve had for several years, and they are not online any longer. There are a few pairs on eBay that are available, but I’ll link to some similar ones that you might also like.

  1. I love the whole entire outfit, but especially the turquoise top! Love, love, love your style and the fun you have when shooting the pictures–life is too short not to laugh and dance and sing at the top of your lungs!

  2. Hi Tania. You look great in this outfit and I love the shorts. I too have “athletic” thighs and need shorts that are a bit loose in the leg. You said you are wearing a size 30 but what is the American size for 30? That will help me decide what size I should get. Thank you!

  3. Fun post and cute outfit. Is linen really that cool in humidity? I’ll have to try it. So many bloggers etc. are featuring linen and I must admit, in this long life of mine, I’ve never worn it. As far as this blouse, I love the color, but shy away from wearing anything that draws attention to my middle. I admire your look in shorts. I wear them, but rarely and with longer inseam, even though I’m a petite. I favor crops and now love the look of the wide leg pants. They feel so freeing!

  4. These pictures make a smile come to my face today. I am getting over a parathyroidectomy and am very tired again today. Your blog keeps me up on fashion and I love to see what you will be wearing and what you will say. Thanks.

  5. Keith Urban* to the contrary, blue is your color. You look healthy, happy and definitely hip. I love tie blouses but I don’t think I have a linen one. That’s great.

  6. I love tie shirts. I don’t like to wear tight shirts so I buy a med. or large and then they hang at the waist. The tie helps with that problem. Did you really slide down that tunnel slide? I love to hang with people that make me laugh and lucky enough that my husband can do that.

  7. The best way to increase serotonin is to smile and if feeling like a child again makes you smile then good for you! I like your outfit, blue always makes your eyes sparkle. Enjoy your day!

  8. I agree with you: laughing makes you feel & look younger! Love that blouse. ON the website, though , the color looks more like a bright acqua. I love that on your photos, it looks more like chambray. Thanks for bringing us different ideas on dressing! I love this blouse as an alternative to a cardigan for working in air conditioning.

  9. So fun. My inner kid comes our when I am on a playground with my grandchildren. I will swing and slide with them. Love the top….too bad it’s dry clean care.

    Love your light-hearted post today.

  10. You are awesome! You love to have fun and it makes all of us want to do the same!!!
    Such a pretty outfit today!!

  11. You are brave for going down the slide with white shorts on!! LOL Love the color of the top and the style also. Great summer outfit and the new KS collection is so pretty! Awesome choice for a photo shoot! I let the inner kid in me come out as often as possible.

  12. I always look forward to your posts. Great everyday summer outfit. Being silly keeps you young at heart. I love seeing my 36 year old son being silly with his daughter like I was silly with him.

  13. just LOVE this look and your choice to take pictures couldnt have been more fun. I kind of wish I were there!
