4th of July Pool Party Outfit

sex and coke

Almost entirely tag sale purchases today. Just the cut-offs - the only denim shorts I own! - in the "new" column. They're the ones I got at the Lookbook X Levis party. I love the size-too-big super slouchiness of them.

You saw the shirt in my off-season loot post but the other pieces are all things I've kept for many years through many closet cleanings. The shirt was a little heavy for July but don't you just love the way it lays? I'm having a gingham moment. Probably soon to be followed by a summer plaid moment. I can feel it happening already.

So I spent 4th of July at my cousin's pool party in Cold Spring Harbor (check out my poolside Insta Video) but there were a lot of rug rats running and splashing around so Hubbs and I escaped out back to the stables for a bit. I think the stables are perhaps over their property line but that wasn't the reason this was such a huge mistake. ;) This was a huge mistake because the only thing bugs love more than all this green stuff I'm surrounded by is my delicious skin.

Cowboy boots to a pool party? Go ahead and defy convention, I say. Everybody loved them.


I loved the way I could give one hip shake and make my shorts slide off so I could jump into the pool at a moment's notice.
