WIW: Summer Tough

Since I'm on Team Tough, I thought I'd try to come up with a nice 'tomboy' summer look.  It wasn't as easy as I thought.  I just wore my jean cutoffs, and they're not clean again yet, so I was left without using denim or distressed items to toughen up the look.  It's too hot for boots (or even shoes).  But in my experience, most tomboys are barefoot - so I figure that fits :)

So here's my idea of RATE without denim - linen shorts and a button-down sleeveless.

I should have added a fedora.

What do you think? Other suggestions?

    This reminds me of Idgie Threadgoode from one of my favorite movies, Fried Green Tomatoes. So yes, it's perfect summer tomboy!

    Very Huck Finn (If he were a, well, she).  Very pretty blue you are!

    Hope your first week of school is going well!  I'm fortunate to teach only 2 kids, 6 months apart.  Last year, when we began educating at home, I just put them both in the same grade.  Eric got a promotion!  Still, this year is 7th grade, and jr. high is scary in any setting!

    Cute casual look on you Amy, I like:). Yay for Team Tough!

    Thanks Beth Ann - It's getting easier as the week goes on - and I have ideas for making it better yet.    I do my eldest two in almost the same grade also - even though they're 17 months apart - the younger was a super early reader, and the elder a slightly slow reader, so it just made sense. Right now about 80% of their work is the same.

    Teenagers scare me - Kudos to you for taking them through this rough transition yourself! :)
