time flies.

My bf’s gift to me: a Michael Kors watch!

Today, I hit the quarter century mark and I can’t believe how much time has flown by!  It only seems appropriate that my boyfriend got me my very first watch (at least since my Mickey Mouse wearing days).  Even though I’m still getting used to the extra weight on my wrist, I officially feel like a grown up.

I’m so lucky to have such amazingly supportive and loving friends and family in my life.  Thanks to all who have made turning 25 as fabulous (and painless) as possible!

So now that I’ve revealed my sick obsession with colored shorts, it’s time to start parading them around!  I’ve had a blast experimenting with different combinations in my closet, and so for this look incorporated my two favorite elements: floral and bright.  Even though summer is quickly slipping away, you better believe I’ll be getting the most of my colored shorts.

So I may or may not have recently gone on an online J. Crew binge.  But between the additional 30% off sale and the delectable selection of super vibrant shorts, I couldn’t help myself!

I’ve been waiting all summer for the perfect red shorts to go on sale, and when it did, I couldn’t just stop there.  Modern red, laquer yellow, African violet, mint green, honey tangerine — if these colors don’t scream summer, I don’t know what does.

P.S. As it so happens, there’s an additional 40% off (argh, if only I waited two weeks!) sale going on right now at J. Crew until Tuesday, July 26th.  Happy shopping and have a wonderful weekend!
