Shorts That Go the Distance

My bright purple J.Crew chino shorts are arguably one of my best summer purchases. They're comfy, versatile and fun.  So fun, that I seem to live in them on weekends.  Today was no exception. I met with Magen, Monica and Mishelle (whoa, that's a whole lotta "Ms") for brunch at Tiny Boxwoods. If you haven't been there, it's amazing! I had the chipotle steak salad and their cinnamon coffee is to die for. I plan to sprinkle cinnamon in my coffee forever now. Also, the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. Rustic meets glam meets urban garden. It truly feels like an escape from the city with it's perfectly manicured gardens and wicker chairs. Sigh. I just want to hang out there for hours (we kind of did, haha).

I chose my trusty Zara tunic to pair with my shorts, and I sweat right through that darn blouse, but it looked pretty cute. I think I would have sweat no matter what I wore though, it was THAT hot and humid here today. I was wearing workout clothes as I ran errands later in the day and the sweating continued. Ick.

  10. I love your wedges!! I've been looking for both nude wedges and nude patent heels and I found a pair of heel by Corso Como that are incredible on nordstrom.com. The style is called "Del". They are a great alternative to the Martina's because they are more of an almond toe. The purple shorts are great!

  27. Love your blog and love your opinions -- I bought a similar pair of wedges -- my first Ivanka Trump purchase!

    Also love your YouTube videos -- ESPECIALLY the latest one on drugstore products. Had to go out and get two items -- the face moisturizer and the eye rewind corrector. Happy with everything so please keep sharing your favorite items!
