A simple outfit can be deceptive. Take Misty Doonis' easy daytime look of jeans, a strapless top and flats. Taken alone, each piece is simple, but together the look is va-va-voom. What makes this summer ensemble special? First, Misty chose a top with great colors -- a deep, exotic blend of hues that complements her tan. Her dark jeans are trouser-style, a silhouette that always reads just a little bit dressy. And finally, Misty chose to spice up this outfit with a beautiful set of big beads -- drawing the eye up to the Towson resident's best feature.

"I've made many painful mistakes in my life. I want my death to have some meaning. " -- Myrtle Snow "American Horror Story" wrapped its third season with a strong finale, focusing on themes of mortality and motherhood. The show got lost when it strayed from those ideas this year, often attempting to shock its audience, seemingly at the expense of cohesive plot and logic. But as the finale showed, when it wanted to, Coven could tell a compelling story, even without much of its trademark violence and gore.

SOME 40,000 spectators crammed onto the tiny island of Chincoteague, Va., last week to celebrate the region's annual rite of summer: the waterborne roundup of wild ponies from nearby Assateague to cull out the new crop of foals. Only a thousand visitors remained for the next morning's foal auction, but they were the hardcore. Overwhelmingly female, predominantly mothers and little girls, and driven by something coded deep in their DNA to compete in an 80-year-old ritual for the privilege of taking home one of these gangly horse babies.

After mounting menorahs atop minivans and gathering in Park Heights, members of Baltimore's Jewish community paraded in a caravan south to the Inner Harbor, where they ate latkes and jelly doughnuts, danced and listened to traditional music before lighting the city's 30-foot-tall menorah in McKeldin Park. Under a misty rain Sunday evening, another Hanukkah season was marked downtown, with celebrants of the festival of lights proudly announcing their faith on Light Street. "Hanukkah has a special message, not only for people of the Jewish community but also for the larger community," said Rabbi Shmuel Kaplan, director of Chabad Lubavitch in Maryland, which helped organize the event.

Tens of thousands of people turned out Wednesday for the annual Chincoteague wild pony swim, an event made famous by Marguerite Henry's novel, "Misty of Chincoteague. " About 175 ponies crossed Assateague Channel, and many are auctioned off to support the Virginia town's fire services. The rest of the ponies return to the island. It's the biggest day of the year for little Chincoteague, as tourists pour into town for the swim and auction, as well as related events, such as free showings of the "Misty" movie . For some spectators, the event was a dream come true, according to Baltimore Sun reporter Erin Cox, who was there for the day. "This has been my lifelong dream since I was 8 years old," Robin Dodge, 55, who drove from upstate New York with her husband, told Cox. Sun photographer Karl Merton Ferron captured the event in pictures.

— As the herd of wild ponies emerged on the horizon Wednesday morning, Robin Dodge looked across the water to see her childhood fantasy come true. More than 145 horses were poised at the Assateague Channel for the annual 75-yard swim, a tradition that has outlived most people on this tiny Virginia island. "This has been my lifelong dream since I was 8 years old," said Dodge, 55, who drove from upstate New York with her husband. Moments later, a voice crackled over the loudspeaker, assuring a crowd that would eventually swell to 40,000 that this was not a dream: "If you can hear me talking, you're here now. " Unlike petting Black Beauty, watching the Pony Swim of Chincoteague is a fantasy that can be lived in adulthood.
