This weekend the weather was gorgeous and reminded me that IT IS STILL SUMMER so we ventured out to the town fair for cotton candy and pony rides.  You can find the pictures on twitter @DewoftheDesert.

In an earlier post I promised head-to-toe stripes. It’s quite easy if you follow these guidelines:

– keep the stripes in the same color family (black and white is the easiest)

– vary the width of the stripes. You want the skinnier stripes on the bottom and the wider ones at the top

– try to avoid uniform horizontal stripes from head-to-toe because it looks too clownish candy stripe

– wear a bold shoe to anchor the look or to add a splash of color (think neon or strong primary colors like electric blue)

Add a matching dog and you’re done!
