I find this time of summer, hmmm how can I say this politely….difficult. We have done almost everything, the kids are bickering and bored and my patience tolerance is low. I practically got into a wrestling match with Levi last night trying to extract his front tooth that was literally hanging by a thread, I was scared he would choke on it in his sleep. The kid can break his arm and get two pins removed without a shedding a tear but pulling (I use this word generously) a tooth out evoked total hysteria for a couple of hours. Well I won the battle and he is toothless!


These J Crew shorts are the exact side zip style as my b&w ones (last seen here), they are by far my fav shorts ever. Flattering, comfortable and a longer 5″ inseam.


This is my go to summer outfit, when I m not wearing a dress that is. I love the bold colour combination and modern floral print of these shorts, paired with a chambray peplum top and I feel dressy casual.


Style Tip: To give your casual cotton shorts a dressier feel pair them with a tailored top, blouse or blazer. For a nite out throw on a pair of stilettos and voila, instant drama.


A statement necklace with the same palette pulls the look together and again glams it up…and how amazing are these turquoise Kate Spade cat eyes?? I also have a black pair and scored them both at Winners for $39.99…who hoo!

I am obsessed with these Banana Republic gold gladiators, they are from last season and I am totally kicking myself for not buying a second pair and a black pair…my brilliant sister-in-law bought multiples and I am so envious!

Wishing you all a day full of summer, sunshine and sunnies.
Your friend in fashion…amy.
