Man oh man, has it been a week. From birthday celebrations and cinco de mayo shenanigans, to learning pains in a new position at work and crazy thunderstorms, to ending with me getting sick as the cherry on top. So yes, I’m writing this post cuddled up on my couch catching up on Scandal while drinking copious amounts of orange juice as I try to feel better.
We are still getting a lot of rain here in Dallas but when the sun is out, its gorgeous. Lots of people were out and about enjoying the sunshine. This is one of my go-to warm weather outfit combinations. Colored shorts, interesting tank top, wedges, and a fun clutch.
This version includes the classic J. Crew chino shorts. I add a pair or two to my collection every spring/summer season. I love finding them on sale at the J. Crew Factory outlet locations as well (the website is having a crazy sale right now…go!). The colors offered and easy fit make these my summer favorites. My Vince tank is old but I still love to wear it. I layer a simple plain tank top underneath as a solid background. While it is a sweater, the open knit makes it not too hot to wear in the summer. My oversized neon clutch purse is a great pop-of-color accessory. It’s big and makes a statement. I love adding it to an outfit with a monochromatic feel or even with all black. Even if you are not a big fan of color, mixing it in with a bright accessory will help jazz up your look.
Today is Mother’s Day! So Happy Mom’s Day to all of you mamas and soon-to-be-mothers out there! One of my college friends announced that she is expecting which makes the day all the more special. Tell your mom (or any mom’s you know) you love her and hug her tight if you can!
