The weather’s heating up here in Southern California. We’re fortunate to live just a mere 20-minute drive above the valley below because temperatures easily pass 100 degrees daily in the summer. As you climb the mountain, you literally watch the temperature gauge in the car drop degree by degree, till you arrive at home. A decent 15-20 degrees cooler simply because we’re at 5,000 feet.

After spending part of last week updating my wardrobe for summer (what will I wear to Blogher next month?), I ended up with a pile of clothing to be refitted, refashioned and repurposed. I still need "items" to make this a stylin' summer, but my free-time is almost as limited as my budget.
