Happy first day of August! I’m *very* sad summer is coming to an end (really dreading that snow, ya feel me?), but if I could live in a world full of August’s, I would. There’s the perfect mix of weather – hot days, chillier days, rainy days, and plenty of beach days. The world is a big place, so I’m sure there’s somewhere that is like this all. the. time. So, if you know of this place or live in this place, lemmmme know so I can move there ASAP (I feel like this is Southern California???).
On to my outfit – I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m alllll about the ruffle trend right now (see here & here) so there’s no denying that I am completely smitten with this adorable chambray top and it’s ruffle sleeve detailing. They’re not over-powering but they’re large enough to protect my shoulders when it’s hot and sunny out, which is key. They also aren’t 100% stationary, so I can lift them up to put a cardigan on if I had to (looks a little silly but all in the name of not freezing at work). It also gives that “All American” vibe when I pair them with my favorite white denim shorts and with the addition of a red lippie, you would think it was 4th of July all over again.
When I first wore these shorts on the blog, I talked about my struggle finding shorts that fit me correctly and how glad I was to give this pair a second chance. Well, I’m glad to say we’re still going strong and they come in two other washes – regular denim and destroyed denim – which I will be picking up before the summer comes to an end because they are THAT good. If you don’t have a pair of these high rise shorts, I highly suggest grabbing a pair while they’re still in stock (all sizes, too!) and if you have the short struggle like I do, size up!
