Such fun thus far for sprummer fashion week! I really like seeing everyone in their warm-weather best. Today, here at Phenofab we're living up casual Saturday. No professional dress, no obligations, just some grocery shopping and enjoying the beautiful day outside.
Shirt: Colombia, thrifted | Shorts: Eddie Bauer, thrifted | Shoes: Merrell, via eBay
The combination of the button-up with rolled sleeves (it's one with fancy sun protection, too, which is awesome 'cuz I sunburn just thinking about going outside) paired with shorts, moccasins, and a ponytail (it's runty, but it's there!) makes me feel like a summer camp counselor.
My shoes are part of Merrell's barefoot line. I've been intentionally working toward minimal footwear for over a year, you've got to have your foot strong enough to not hurt yourself, but I *love* them. It's like wearing jazz dance slippers, they fit my feet like a second skin. Plus, I can feel everything -- did you know that 25% of the muscles and bones in your body are from your ankle down? And that the palms of your hands and soles of your feet have the most nerve endings per surface area? That's a ton of information about the world you're interacting with that you're just not getting if you're wearing stiff shoes all the time! =)
You know the drill -- head over to Delirious Rhapsody, drop your thanks to Deanna and cheer on everyone participating!
