Shorts came out

Briefly, there was a day warm enough for shorts, and such a day should always be taken advantage of. These turquoise shorts had found their way into the donation bag, but have now been reinstated. This happens a lot.

  2. Super cute look! I want to wear shorts too. BTW, your photos look great. Do you have a photographer? Any photography tips?

  3. You look SO pretty! Reminds me of an actress that aaa I just forgot the name haha She is pretty tho, a latin one.


  4. So cute and polished. I love this belt!

  5. Ooooh, that anchor bracelet is such a fun little accessory! How have I not noticed it before? Nautical always seems so right on you no matter the weather. :)

  6. Woohoo for rescuing shorts, hah. I love them with the gold belt :)

  7. That belt is amazing! I am loving your blue on blue look - it is so refreshing! I hope the weather stays warm!


  8. I'm glad you decide to put them back into your closet/back into rotation - they look so relaxed and stylish. And that belt is perfect!

  10. I've tried this look before, but adding a gold belt makes such a difference! This is so cute!

  11. INDEED!!! Yay summer! It's coming! I love the mint shorts with the gold belt!

  12. I don't know how to say I love this enough. Perfection doesn't cover it either. I just absolutely adore this look!

  13. So happy for you that you can finally wear shorts after your long and hard winter, Lyddie!
    Beautiful colours and great with gold and silver.

  14. Keep these shorts! I love how you styled them with that pretty gold belt!

  15. That's funny that you had them in the donation bag and then pulled them out. I do that a lot too. This belt is so cute. I need a gold belt.

  16. I admit, this outfit is quite simple, but chic at the same time! You look so attractive and pretty;) Those photographs turned out great!
    Wish you a wonderful day ahead!)

  17. You glammed up those shorts and you look Great. Bring on the summer outfits. . .

  18. Wait… you put stuff in the bag and it sits there, for how long ?
    i try to give my stuff away latest a month and a half!
    I have to say I am glad you kept these, they are perfect in cut and colour.
    I also like the gold and silver mix you've made here.
    Very clever…. I am sporting the silver nails too!! but not from Essie but from CND :)

  19. I'm glad I'm not the only one whose donation bag has a revolving door policy - I just put several new things in mine last night... and then took a few back out! Funny how that works. These shorts definitely deserved to be rescued, though, the colour is so perfectly summery and it works so well with gold. If only it were even close to warm enough for me to start thinking about shorts... soon, I hope!

  20. I love the mint green shorts! You look so cute!

  21. Your shorts are such a beautiful color! Also, your nails look so amazing!!
    Ooh a donation bag seems like a great idea--I feel like that is something that I need to's just so hard to part with clothing that I never wear anymore because they have memories attached to them! But I guess donating is important, too haha
