I’ve pretty much become a shorts junkie. I wear the same thing every day these late August days–shorts and a button-down shirt–so it’s hard not to be! It’s funny: a few years ago, I thought nothing of my pants, skirts and shorts. I was all about the fun, colorful, patterned tops, and left my bottoms dull: denim, khaki and navy. But I’m loving the current emphasis switch from tops to bottoms in the fashion world! Besides, who says you can’t have way more bottoms than tops? ;) Today I’m sporting my favorite Julie Brown Designs shorts. (Please check out the brand! I’m obsessed.)

Today, Mitch and I hit up another winery as well as the town’s corn festival. We also spent some time at the lake. For dinner, we went to the local Italian restaurant. Loved it. ;)
