It’s as if a emotional raincloud rolls over my head like I’m Eeyore as I revisit pictures to post of my previous weekend; envious for some nice, sunny weather compared to this misty fog of a city summer. I’m a girl who can live off tanks, tees and shorts if the weather would just abide. Mark Twain once quoted, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco”. With that said, I spent a lovely weekend with beloved friends over by the lake. We were so stoked to be boating only to arrive with the water running dry. From the crazy global warming conditions, on top of them sucking out all the lake water to be sold…  Did we end up going to a lake or a puddle? It seems like we (as human beings) are doing too much attempting to act like Mother Nature: moving bodies of water, creating rainclouds, chopping down rainforests… all that. We’re playing too much with fire here. Anyways, just my opinion and something to think about. For everyone else outside of SF that has Mr. Sun’s attention, dance around in a bikini for me while I wrap myself in a snuggie!

xo, tfny.

PS. It’s already a week into August? Um, semi-freak out moment.

how to: keep it short and sweet

Let’s keep this short, pun intended. I love rocking shorts but being in SF, unless you’re ballsy and can brave the cold weather which I can’t, shorts just pile up in the dark corners of my closet. However; perfectly and magically with the welcome to summer, my shorts and legs finally get to see some sunlight! We were encouraged to wear our shorts to work so hey, don’t mind if I do. Especially with the weather being absolutely amazing… if only for two days.
Thought I’d share a few tips on

HOW TO WEAR SHORTS TO WORK:

DO’S:
STILL DRESS LIKE YOU’RE GOING TO WORK. Rocking a blazer or good silk blouse with shorts are always a win!

CONSERVE YOUR TOP HALF – Keep the focus on one body part at a time. In this case, it’ll be your lovely legs.

WEAR APPROPRIATE SHORTS – In a conservative place, shorts are already walking a fine line so opt for shorts that don’t cling too much on your derriere. Denim can work sometimes, but if you’re not sure, sticking to dress shorts is a safe bet.

DON’TS:
WEAR THOSE DENIM, BOOTY CUT OFFS – Please.Don’t wear any type of booty shorts to work in general!

OVERLY SEX IT UP – You’re already strutting those sexy legs so it’s not necessary to wear a strapless top or a low cut shirt. Remember that you’re at work not dressing for a night out.
(If you must, cause you’re heading to Happy Hour or dinner after: keep it classy by covering up with a blazer or cardigan and de-clothe after work)

BEND AND SNAP (Legally Blonde reference. If you don’t know, watch: here) – I know, I know.. It’s hard to resist when you accidently drop a pen but best to keep your bum in your shorts during work hours. Unless you’re trying to snag that hot coworker, that’s all on you.


This may be new for you or this may be all things you may already know. If so, take it as a good reminder. Either way, keep it short and sweet!
