Favorite Denim Shorts

Button Down, old (similar here and here)// Levis Shorts// Aerin Sandals// Apolis Tote// Target Earrings// Target Sunglasses// c/0 Jord Watch// RMS Nail Polish 

I pretty much live in denim shorts all summer whether I’m running errands, throwing them over a bathing suit, or pairing them with a tee and sneakers to one of my sons’ baseball games.  They’re so easy and classic, and when you find the right pair, they’re super flattering. After spotting this particular pair over on Jess’ blog, I  knew I had to have them.  She had styled them with a couple of bathing suits and I just loved the fit, wash and length.  They fit true to size and so far, they haven’t shrunk in the wash (bonus) so I’m very pleased with this purchase!  The other night, I threw them on with this breezy and light linen top and these Aerin sandals which I wear with everything (love this pair as well).   I’ve also been using this jute tote from Apolis non-stop.  I scooped up this particular version at the swag shop when I was down in Dallas for the Beautycounter summit but you can find other options here.  The inside is lined so it’s perfect for the pool or beach or as a roomy tote for running around town.  Plus, it has an inside pocket which I love for my keys and cell phone.

I hope you’re having a great week! I’m missing my daughter who is away at camp 🙁  But, on a brighter note, it’s giving me a chance to bond with the boys and try to savor these last few weeks of summer!

Why I Switched to Facial Oils

Why I Switched to Facial Oils

A few years ago, I switched from using my tried and true daily moisturizer to coconut oil, then to maracuja oil, and more recently, to this brightening facial oil.  Most of my friends look at me like I’m completely nuts when I tell them I use oil on my face but the truth of the(…)
