Are You Ready to Wear Shorts?

The weather in the Northeast is teasing us.. one day it’s 60 degrees and the next it’s in the 20’s.  Then we had Daylight Savings sneak up on us! How did that happen so quickly? We are off to Florida for Spring Break and all I can think about is wearing a bathing suit, shorts, lightweight dresses and sandals!  I can’t wait!  To get in the mood, I rounded up some really cute shorts that work for the beach, to cruising around during the day and then paired with a pretty top for a night out.  I added in some really great wicker bags.. how fabulous is the circular one?? OMG!! I am dying! I really like the first look and found this One Shoulder Top, this bow back top, this blue detailed one and this seersucker (!) in blue that would look cute with shorts.

With Spring nipping at our heels, Ridgely Brode finds several cute shorts (and wicker bags) on her blog Ridgely's Radar to get us ready!

Perfect Outfit for a Summer Weekend

With the weather this past week hovering in the high 90’s it has been very difficult to find something to wear that is cool, comfortable and doesn’t look like a rumpled mess in the heat. I want to wear this loose, lightweight Cotton Voile Caftan over white linen shorts with neutral accessories.  It looks like it would be the perfect outfit for a hot Summer weekend.  What do you think?
