In Quest of Shade

Each weekend during summer and spring, I try to spend time outdoors. Since it has been extremely hot lately, I have returned to my favorite shady sites in the city. I discovered last year that the parks close to the Capitol Building feature a multitude of beautiful, shade-bearing trees.

Today’s look is a casual Saturday outfit I wore to Senate Park. I usually bring a sandwich, along with a cold bottle of sparking water, and relax by the gurgling fountains. This last weekend, to help keep cool in the hot sun, I also brought a sharp-looking hat that has a perfectly sized brim for wearing in the city and combining with different outfits. As you can see from my denim shorts in the photos, I’ve continued my ‘hot summer fling’ with comfortable blue pieces.

Thanks for reading!

Have a nice week!

Danielle
