These chino shorts are from '07, I think. Old enough the interior tag is not dated, with high quality double hook fasteners and cute printed layers of contrasting fabric sewn into interior waistband (hence the idea of this color top - so helpful!). Just realizing the cafe capri interiors & fasteners are very similar to these older style chino shorts.
The friendship bracelet I have is from JCrew retail, with gold accents rather than silver. Love when everything falls into place. 
Have a happy Monday! Or should I say Happy Montag! My boy is slowly learning some German, very little bits at a time. :)

I got the no2 double serge cotton pencil skirt in warm jade.
The area where i live is very casual and not a lot of women wear pencil skirts,so i will see how it will fit in my lifestyle(stay-at home mom/nurse in former life).
I have a friend who is a librarian and she def. would never wear a pencil skirt, she is the ultimate pants wearer.

Cousins, maybe! When I finally nail down some facts I'll have to share w/you.
Which pencil did you get? I just couldn't see myself pulling them out for casual wear, but that is just me & my lifestyle right now. Shoot, I feel 'dressy' in cafe capris & a tee. :P The secretary comment made me smile because when I worked in a professional setting, one of my secretary friends started wearing the longer pencil skirts, & everyone said she looked like a librarian. Lol I guess you just can't win sometimes. @inamack

I am also not sure if i am a "pencil skirt person",but i had to try it,so i know what everybody is talking about.
It might make me look like a secretary,haha.
I was think the same thing as you about the striped tortoise button sweater,it is cute,but i am sure more a coming,that look maybe a little more fall-ish.
wouldnt that be fun if you have german ancestors,maybe we are distant cousins lol?

Your idea is better, and I've been considering taking my own pic's too, it's just a bit of a hassle (to me) getting it done! ;) @lepetitdraipiere
