Printed shorts and simple top

Happy Thursday!
I'm back... I took last week off to spend time with Jayden (and the twins) before he starts Kindergarten next week (aghh)! We had a great visiting the Children's Museum, going to playground, visiting another museum, and hanging out. I can't believe our elementary school years are upon us! Seriously, where does time go?! I'm getting a little sad realizing how big my big boy really is. Sigh.

About the outfit, I wore this to happy hour and dinner with B on our Anniversary weekend. I love pairing shorts with heels (I need all the height I can get!) but wanted to keep the outfit simple for the most part. Except for jewelry, of course, and the accessories. I love color, and will add it any way I can with my jewelry. I am learning, as I host my Stella & Dot trunk shows, that some women shy away from the bright and bold jewelry. So I am also learning to work with my basic pieces to dress up outfits.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. Such a cute outfit on you, the patterned shorts are fancy enough for a night out paired with the simple blouse you have on. I have really been into bright and neon yellows this summer, so of course I love the pop of yellow from your clutch! I would love for you to come over and link up with What Wives Wear - curlycraftymom.com
