Mon Chemisier d'Eté

I love my mother. I was wearing this new top that I had just bought at Macy's.

It wasn't even on sale, and I couldn't use my Star Rewards discount card for money off on it. I didn't care. I liked it a lot, I told her. She said she liked it too. A lot.

And when I wore it a second time she said, "Oh, you're wearing that nice top I like. It's so pretty. It looks like a Monet painting!"

And then I realized why I really bought it.

Oh, I won't be wearing this top when I go to Paris in September. But I plan to wear it a lot this summer, while I anticipate this wonderful upcoming trip. 

Until Paris ... only 75 more days to go!
