Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I document my adventures (and very likely my misadventures) in style, beauty and whatever else I may become obsessed with. I hope you find something inspiring. Have a nice stay!

Happy Monday guys!!! Mondays are just the worst, aren't they?  And it's not like I hate my day job, because I actually really like it.  But when you have a weekend like I did (literally like maybe 4 hours of sleep a night) it makes for a really groggy Monday.

Anyways, these shorts.  Let me list the things that I love about them: they're comfortable, they're gingham, they're not insanely short, they are versatile, they have pockets, they have a cute tie around the waist, and they're mustard.  I LOVE the color mustard.  I'm not one to really wear a lot of color, but mustard is definitely one on my list that I love.  I think it's because mustard is more of a neutral.  It goes with so many other colors (i.e. burgundy, grey, blush, eggplant, beige, navy, red.....seriously, a lot).  PLUS, mustard is appropriate for all seasons.  

With this outfit, I chose to let the shorts be the statement piece for obvious reasons and I decided to pair it with more simple pieces, using black as the accent color.  Which I really actually love about this look because usually black is the base color of an outfit.

Have an awesome week friends!
