The Short of it

The weather this weekend was fabulous! I even got a little sunburned sitting outside having lunch with some friends. I can't tell you how excited I am that warmer weather is here. I love being able to meet friends after work and sit on a patio and enjoy the weather and their company.
About two summers ago, the only thing you would find me in would be jeans and a tank top. I wasn't much of a dress girl, nor did I like shorts. And yes, I was miserably hot and that's probably why I never really liked getting out. But I have slowly turned my spring/summer wardrobe into only dresses, skirts, and shorts. And I am so happy I did. Don't get me wrong, I do occasionally wear jeans out in the evenings if it's on the cooler side. But for the most part, I live in dresses and shorts. Last year I happened across a brand of jeans at a local boutique that I adore. I really should have bought two pair. I literally lived in them all summer. And I plan to do the same again this year. Although I am going to add a couple of new pairs to my wardrobe, so I don't wear out my faves. Shorts are mostly seen as casual, but you can also make them a little dressier. Below are a few of my favorites.

These are the shorts I bought last year, and love!

  1. Oh shorts! How I am longing to wear them. I will never forget a few years ago I had on jeans in the summer. I met a friend for lunch, she looked at me and asked why in the heck I was wearing jeans in the summer! I still to this day do not know why I used to wear them. I simply adore shorts, rompers and dresses. Happy Monday!
