Cooling Effect~

During lunch break yesterday, I rushed to the nearest discount store to purchase
a pair of cool summer shorts! The temperature is supposed to rise yet again today ~eeeck!
Needing all the cooling effects I can get!
Anywayyy...
" who would rather be in these beautiful places today? "
~take a look :

yup, I raised me-hand!!
" Don't forget to bring the suntan lotion darrrlingsss..."

Eeee! I really like the second beach picture. It makes me feel so dreamy. I do love seeing crystal blue waters like that. It just looks so refreshing!

I get dibs on the hammock! That's where I want to be. Up off the sand and not surrounded by hundreds of sweaty, sun-tan lotioned others. Not that I'm anti-social, I just prefer my own company!!!

Jan said...

Work sucks when it's that hot doesn't it? You're looking pretty cool though LNM.xxx

Wonderful pictures Lenore, I love the couple playing cards in the water and the last one is an all time favorite of mine. Slim was incredible and is such a legend, I LOVE him.
Great shorts, I have an identical looking pair from jcrew that I'm wearing to a day party on Saturday in Saratoga, can't wait.
