Pretty in Pink & Linen Shorts

Thanks for all your kind words in the last post (when I was talking about doctors being humans too!), I really appreciate it! It's been a rather tough week or so as D has been off traveling the world again on business and he's had to stay longer than expected. The entire time we've been together, it's been one thing after another. I suppose all that we've been through has brought us closer, but I wish things could be easier and we could have some normalcy (he agrees frankly).

As with all couples, we have our issues but as I've grown older (and matured), I've learned to communicate how I feel. I try not to tell my boyfriend what to do, what to think, what to feel... he should want to do what he does for me because he wants to. That said, despite the difficulties, I'm glad he asked me for my number!

Cardigan :: Staring at Stars from Urban Outfitters
Top :: Sparkle & Fade from Urban Outfitters
Bottoms :: Free People
Shoes :: Free People
Bag :: Proenza Schouler

I realized after I stepped out of my apartment this morning, I was wearing a very washed out looking outfit, what with the light cream and pale pink palette. My only real source of color were my shoes and my PS1. But I think it works well enough as weather transitions from Spring to Summer. It was a comfortable outfit to wear with the temperatures in the mid-80s.

What I love best about the outfit is the crochet cardigan. I love that it has this drapey, boxy look to it and it's comfortable to wear. It definitely can make you look dowdy depending on what you wear with it, but I think what I have paired with it works well enough despite the very washed out color scheme. And did I ever tell you something that makes me go <3 with cardigans are when they have pockets? (Same with dresses!)

Admittedly, the pockets aren't that useful, but I just like sticking my hands in them when I don't know what to do with myself! I realize I've gotten so used to wearing my Toms around, which are super comfy, that even wearing fairly comfortable flat sandals weren't enough support for my feet... I do adore the braided details of these sandals though I got for a really good deal at Free People!

The last really cute detail of my OOTD are the little bows on the linen shorts. I have to say, as I've gotten older, I really like wearing shorts that aren't short shorts. I guess I think it's more flattering to cover up more than to show off more, if you know what I mean?

Last but not least, because I can't help myself... my PS1!

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!


  1. I love the cardi, it's so pretty. And love your toe polish! It must be hard with D traveling so much, but hopefully it will all be worth it in the end! :)
