To jort or not to jort.

Confession: I bought some jorts. Cute or not cute?

If somebody had told me two summers ago that I would purchase pleated and cuffed jorts in 2011, I would have been like, "Girl, you crazy."

So I'm not sure how I feel about this recent purchase. All I know is that Missouri is hot in August.

What's your opinion? ('Cause, I mean, I am the queen of returning things.)

You need to know

that Anne Taylor Loft (i.e. retailer of all that is stylish and lovely) is having a crazy sale!

Here are just a few examples for you:

Dress: $25

Top: $15

Shorts: $25

Tank: $15

I know, right!? Hurry because I'm receiving mixed messages about how long the sale is lasting!

Summer essentials sale & regular sale.

I went to the Gap today.

And while I was there, that couple from that American Gothic painting


and Opie from The Andy Griffith Show


and Ellen DeGeneres


and various members of the Duggars Waltons

all called to say they wanted their clothes back.

Talk about underwhelmed by this season's selection.

*Why, yes, I did whip out my phone in the store to snap photos of these fashion disasters for your future blog-reading pleasure.
