I mean, hello. Can we talk about my natural scowl? My favorite way to show I'm having the best time ever is to look as serious and potentially angry as possible. Guys, this is how I show I know FASHION. But seriously, I'll work on showing a hint of a smile somewhere, sometime.

I bought these shorts at the beginning of the summer season and have been debating the best way to style them ever since. I finally landed on a dressier look, keeping the shorts the statement of the outfit with complementary neutral colors. I'm not wild about shorts in general, but I wanted to give them a try this season - I featured two on the blog so far so it's a good start.

I am obsessed with these shoes - this style has been trendy for about a year now I'd say and I've been waiting a.) to see how long it would stay and b.) for the perfect pair that wouldn't break the bank. I found this pair at Alloy (a longtime secret shoe haven for me) and got them during a flash sale. Also love this statement necklace that I snagged from Forever 21 - really helps jazz up the look and draws attention back to the shorts by living in the same color family. Baublebar and ILY Couture have some amazing sales right now - it's a good time to stock up on some statement pieces. The best part is they work in any season!

I haven't carried this bag in a while - I remember seeing it in Cosmo one month and realizing I had to have it once I realized it was from Aldo. I remember waiting for a table at Cheesecake Factory in the Providence Place Mall with manfriend and telling him I had to run to the restroom while I ran upstairs to purchase the bag. He's clearly a keeper for putting up with me.
