Spring Must-Have: Boyfriend Shorts!

We all know and love the boyfriend jean, so I am excited to see lots of boyfriend shorts at retailers this spring. I just bought two pairs from Old Navy (in both the light and dark wash) that I am hoping will fit just right. For me, a boyfriend short should be slightly distressed, and at least 3.5" long. The Old Navy shorts are 5" long, which I think will be perfect. 

These of course would make a super cheap and easy DIY. Head to your local thrift shop, find a pair of denim in a loose fit and chop those babies off to short size! 

I picked these examples of the boyfriend short in action to go along with my "Ladies Who Picnic" spring vibe ;) Paired with a simple button-down in a solid, gingham or chambray, and some strappy sandals and you are good to go! Which way to the park?

This is a very versatile piece that can go with anything from a tshirt and tank, or layered with a cardigan, blazer or kimono style blouse.

Spring Inspirations


To say I'm excited for spring to roll around is a vast understatement. This winter was a bummer. I just felt very out of sorts, and I'm not sure exactly why. The fresh start of a new season is giving me loads of hope right now, and I'm having a great time envisioning what type of vibes I'm looking for this spring. I'm finding inspiration in soft, simple colors, no-fuss outfits, and the art of the picnic. You know "Ladies Who Lunch"? I'm going for a "Ladies Who Picnic" vibe this spring. I'll let you know how it goes ;)  

What are you looking forward to and inspired by this spring? Let's chat!


Weekend Outfit Ideas

I got all excited thinking this weekend was Daylight Savings time...womp womp womp. It's not until March 8th. Serves me right for taking my nine year old's word for it. But, what made up for it is the fact that House of Cards season 3 is out today!! Basically all I'll need this weekend is some comfy lounge wear (this tee explains it all), but if you have somewhere nice or fun to go this weekend, here are some ideas for ya!

I realized haven't done a snazzy outfit in awhile, so let's get dressed up!


How To Style White Birkenstocks + A Look For Less

When Birkenstocks decided to become a cool kid trend last year, I first gave it a bit of side eye, but much as with a new pop song on the radio, they grew on me. Pretty soon I couldn't get the lyrics out of my head and I had to have a pair. I decided to wait a bit and see if I still liked them once the next sandal season rolled around, and well, here we almost are! I do in fact still like the idea of a Birk, in all their granola simplicity. Plus, granny alert, I need some flat sandals with a more comfortable and supportive foot bed due to a lurking arthritic knee. I swear I'm only 33. I'm also a poet who didn't know it.

A favorite has arose in the course of the year, and that is the white Birkenstock Arizona with the white sole. Today I have complied a bevy of beauties wearing the white Birkenstock in oh-so stylish ways. There really is a look to fit every style.

On a related note, I hate to break it to you, but Tevas are the new Birkenstock this year for sure. Insert major side eye here and come back next year to see if I have changed my mind.

I really love these classic looks, with the Birks styled with denim, button-ups and trench coats. The palettes remain fairly neutral, or you can add some fun with bright accessories like the last gal.

This is a great no fuss, no muss look. Pants in white or gray, and a solid color up top. Done and done.

Paired with a cotton skirt or dress, you get major easy breezy vacation vibes. These are the perfect walk all day sandal to pack in your carry on. Pass the umbrella drink stat. 

I allllmost bought a pair of the Arizona Birkenstocks in white during a President's Day sale on Asos. The whole site was 25% off, so they would have ended up being around $70 I believe. That is the cheapest I have found them. Generally they are around $100. I resisted though, because to be honest, that is still a lot for me to spend on something that I don't need. Target has pulled through with a look alike that is currently only $25. I'm still debating whether to splurge on the originals, or save on the knock off. What are your thoughts? I need some moral support here.
