So, I may or may not have had a couple margaritas before writing this post. I'm just putting that out there. The fact that my dog's backside is making a cameo in this picture will probably answer that question. Yet, this picture was taken before said margaritas were (or were not) consumed.
Today, I was inspired by two things. One, the "Uniform Dressing" post by one of my new reads: Spry on the Wall. I love her variations on dressing up khakis and a tee. My second inspiration was the beach. We don't have one. I wish we did. I watch Barefoot Contessa (on the Food Network) regularly, and she lives in the Hamptons. If I lived in the Hamptons, I would wear this. It seems very Hamptons-y (only cheaper). I kind of want her life a little bit. So, just squint your eyes, and imagine that pickup behind me is a BMW, and my house is covered in shingles, the A/C is a fancy herb garden, and on the table is a crudité platter.
