Chino Shorts For Now Or Later & The Style Six Link Up

Hey sweet friends! As you can see I'm still in shorts, but did you notice that I'm wearing long sleeves?? There's a temporary break from the stifling, sauna-like thickness of south Florida humidity and I'm taking advantage. Though temps continue in the high 80s, the gentle breezes make for a comfortable bike ride with my daytime buddies.  One boy lamented that PE was not a necessary subject and I disagreed. We need our vitamin D and daily dose of exercise!

Speaking of exercise, my mom recently challenged me to 30 minutes of activity a day for 100 days. Challenge accepted and welcomed - at least by me anyway. ;) Whether they understand it or not, burning off pent up energy helps them focus better!

Now I realize there's no need for runway fashion at home, but a comfy put-together look makes me feel more confident. I function better, even if all I'm sporting is a simple top and a cute pair of shorts!
Speaking of the shorts, I found them on sale at GAP (code SEP40 for 40% off online!) and couldn't resist. With already two pairs of chinos in solids, it was time for a striped pair, right? If shorts are already off your fall attire, you can stock up for next year!

As for the rest of this outfit, I happily shopped my closet and even ended up wearing my long neglected, classic VANS! Scroll on down for more photos with my favorite cruiser, my pick from last week's link up and of course this week's link up! I'm so glad you're here!

Last Week's Favorite
I chose Elise's outfit from Sparkles and Slippers because I can't resist a hat, paired with distressed denim, fab shades and a striped shirt.
