Scalloped Shorts.

I know it's cliché, but I honestly can't believe we're at the tail end of August already.
July and August are always busy months for John and I. With both of our birthdays, our anniversary, and lots of other little events thrown in, summer's end always comes much sooner than we think it will. So when people start posting about the number of days left until pumpkin spice lattes, I'm looking around like "What? What month is it even?!" 
But I have done my research, and it is in fact August 23rd. And we still have one whole month of summer left. The weather is warm, but a slightly cooler breeze rolls around at night--perfect for a pair of cute scalloped shorts and a light sweater!

Bonus: the adorable high-waist shorts I have on below are on SALE for $9.99. Say what?! YES, $9.99.
They fit perfectly and I love the gold button detail as a simple, but classy finishing touch. 
(For size reference, I'm wearing a small.)  
Check the scalloped shorts out here and the rest of the outfit details below.

Hope your summer's been lovely, friends! :)

Ann Blanche Flats HUGE Sale Alert!

If you've been following me for a while, you know that I'm a big proponent of flats.
Not surprisingly (but much to the chagrin of my 25-year old self), the older me is more occupied with comfort. But, why not comfort and style?
In comes Ann Blanche. I've posted about my love of these super cute ballet flats before. But today I want to tell you about an amazing sale that they're having at Jane.com. Each of the flats available for the sale are only $14.99!!
The sale goes until midnight this Sunday (Aug 21st). But be aware that they have only a limited supply for the sale. So if you're looking for a pair or super cute and comfortable flats for a great price, hurry!! You can shop the sale here: http://jane.com/deal/232924

Stripes + Florals.

Why do I keep adding more stripes to my closet when I have more than enough to go around?
Because there is no such thing as 'too many' stripes; especially when they come in the shape of a versatile cardi!
Stripes are great for adding pizzazz to a plain outfit, but they're also perfect for pattern-mixing. Just make sure that:
1. The colors in your other pattern 'go' with the colors of your stripes.
2. The sizes of your two patterns play well together. Thinner stripes look better with larger florals and vice versa. 

The striped cardi I'm wearing below is from the ever-fab Catch Bliss Boutique-- and you'll probably want to get your hands on it ASAP because the last lightweight cardi that I posted sold out immediately.
So if you're considering buying it, hurry! :)
