embroidered-shortsBelieve it or not, I’m not big on shopping. I love getting new clothes but hate going on the search for things I need. I tend to stick with pieces that are classic, timeless, and easy to wear, and have a few go-to places where I know I’ll find exactly that.

When you do find a good thing, you’ve just got to share. These embroidered shorts are it! Bright, comfortable, and finished with the prettiest details. Not too short, not too long and in a lightweight cotton-linen fabric. They’re perfect for summer. Plus, that blue!

Also worth noting: they’re lined and feature a smocked waistband (super comfy and a nice, flattering fit).

I’ve paired them with fitted tees and tanks and a fun statement earring and absolutely love them. If you’re in the market for a great pair of shorts, I am happy to recommend these. If you want something more neutral, they’re also available in white. You can shop them here.

Memorial Day PicksMemorial Day weekend is upon us, so I’ve rounded up just a few of my favorite picks for the holiday. It’s the unofficial kickoff to summer, and I’m thinking of all the fun memories of the holiday and the laid-back days it welcomes. Celebrating with family and friends, grilling outside, homemade banana pudding, lawn games, and maybe a dip in the pool, too.
