I've got my arms full + a giveaway

{What I Wore: Posh'mina scarf* // J.Crew blythe blouse // Paige Denim shorts** // Target sandals // Nisolo leather tote}
*Posh'mina scarf on loan to me for this giveaway
** Paige Denim shorts gifted to me from The Southern Blog Society as part of an event swag bag
First things First:
Yes I'm still a student. No I do not get Summer break. And I don't want to talk about it anymore either #bitter

I actually love Summer. Well maybe I should say, I love Summer weekends, since I don't really get to go outside during the week.
I pack my Summer weekends to the brim with trips to the dog park, outdoor movies, music festivals, anything associated with water (including but not limited to: pools, lakes, slip-n-slides), patio drinking, flea markets, and road trips.
So I need clothes that change from one activity to the next right there with me.
Layers, not-too fussy, pug-hair proof, & of course look good ;)
Right up there at the top is my all season scarf - The Posh'mina
I love it so much I have a top 10 list, a la David Letterman

10. Makes a wonderful gift
9. Gorgeous designs, like wearing a work of art
8. Company created & run by women
7. I get cold… a lot!
6. To bring out my inner boho
5. Versatile styling potential

3. The owners love pugs too!
2. All season accessory
1. Slotted scarves, because… yea, I've got my hands full
(see the slots clearing in the 2nd photo from the top)


I love my posh'mina & the lovely ladies over at The Posh'mina love Here&Now readers (& pugs!).
