The Trouser Short

trousershortheader

As the weather continues to fluctuate through Southern California I am given the difficult task of dressing for both warm and overcast weather. Being within the confines of my work Biodome and it’s also fluctuating weather patterns has also proven difficult, where do I draw the line? I took a risk today by wearing a pair of floral printed trouser shorts. If the fact that I am wearing shorts is at all brought up I can at least mention their material gives them the “corporate” portion while the length gives them the “casual” side. If you couldn’t tell already, I am in love with printed bottoms. I believe they are something every girl (or guy) should indulge themselves in. Even if you are not a fan of prints, buy a pair of fun solid colored bottoms to spice up some of your everyday blouses.

P.S. I recently purchased this wonderful black blouse from the Conscious Collection at H&M. The material has the perfect weight to help it flow onto my body yet maintain it’s structure which has been seemingly difficult to find for me lately.

On another side note, I’m in dire need of a pedicure, I apologize for the naked toes! Happy Friday!

This past weekend Nick and I visited Laguna Beach to celebrate our one year anniversary. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve ever been on and the weather was perfect. Nothing like walking out of your hotel room and onto the sand. Aside from eating some amazing food, laying out and taking some long walks on the beach, I still managed to get a few shots of my outfits. The theme for this relaxing getaway… printed shorts. The first pair you see are from H&M. I got them for a steal last year as they started blowing out their summer items. The second pair are a printed trouser short from Forever 21 which makes them a little dressier. Both outfits are perfect for this vacation, simple, light weight, but still a fun pop of color!
