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.

summer 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!

When my husband and I first moved to New York City, we never imagined we would be able to own a home. Nearly six years later, we’ve embarked on our most exciting chapter yet!
