Short Season

It is officially that time of year in Florida. The time when you can’t help but sweat through your clothes, and the humidity is at it’s peak: yep, it’s short season. Let me start by saying that I am not a shorts kinda girl, even the word sounds weird to me after saying it out loud: shorts, shorts, SHORTS. But, being that I live in Florida, I was having the need to find a few good pairs to make it through the summer months. I am SO picky with shorts. I will try on several different kinds months on end and then, finally, convince myself to take a pair home that look semi-decent. Then, the worst part happens. I try them on, look in the mirror, and never wear them out of the house. Eventually they end up getting donated the next season, until the viscous cycle repeats it self.
BUT, no more! I have found them: the perfect shorts. How are they perfect? Let me count the ways. First, they have a cinch waist, and I know what you’re thinking. Yes, they feel like pajama shorts- a total plus in my book. Also they are the most flattering on my more athletic inner thighs. They taper in towards the thigh and raise up with an adorable twist towards the outer thigh, think contouring for your legs. What more could a girl want?

Effortless Sunday

It’s finally feeling *a little bit* like winter in Florida. Isn’t it so hard to get out of bed in the colder months? This was one of those days. A la I want to still have the rest of my day with minimum effort and maximum comfort. Current Elliott are the kind of jeans that feel so soft you could sleep in them. They are some of my absolute favorites–so snuggly. Add some sneakers and this oversized crop top and I was all set for some barbacoa tacos & mezcal margaritas.

I’m back at it, and right before the new year. Already making one one of my New Year’s resolutions to be more active on my blog, and my now YouTube channel. Here is to the New Year! Goodbye 2016! Well, before I say goodbye, I’m planning on one more post after this one…and it was shot in one of my favorite areas of north Florida.

You see, I’m already dreaming about the future. Let’s start with the present. You know those days where it’s so dreary out you just feel like throwing on sweatpants and not doing anything with your hair? This was almost one of those days, but then I remembered these amazing boots! Thank you Sam Edelman for making a stylish boot for the masses. I’ve pinned several $200+ rain boots on Pinterest over the past few years so when I saw these were under $55 they immediately made my wish list. Keeping with my green theme is a nod to the cold shoulder trend. I love the muted tone of this Topshop piece, and I’m finding this trend to be a perfect addition to the fluctuating weather here. I paired it with these almost black high waisted jeans from one of my favorite brands. The feeling of being hands free is also a new regular for me right now, which is why this backpack purse has been a staple for me recently. I love the way the fringe adds a detailed element to this look while also remaining minimal at the same time.

June Favorites

June has quickly passed us, and here is the roundup of my current June obsessions. Have you tried any of these products? What are some of your holy grail products you’ve discovered this month?

I have to admit, at first, I was hesitant to fall into the off the shoulder trend that is blowing up everywhere right now. That was until I found the *perfect* one. Now, let me start by saying these blouses are NOT created equally. Just a hair more of elastic on these, and you are getting too much pinch in all the wrong places. When I saw this one in Madewell I knew I had to try it on, just to see, and voilà it was the perfect fit. Keeping with the flowy, relaxed vibe of this semi-eyelet top I paired it with these beautifully distressed high-rise denim from House of Harlow. As predicted, I could not resist color all together so these chandelier earrings were calling my name. For makeup, I kept the eyes simple and completed the look with a metallic lip.
