fashion friday...short+sweet

FRIDAYS are my favorite days.  It's the start to the weekend and it's Fashion Friday!  I love shopping so I get so excited to "shop" for my Friday outfits.  I went crazy again this week and have put together three outfits.  I just can't help myself!

Summer is upon us!  It's been in the high 90's around here so it's clearly the perfect time for shorts.  I actually went through a phase a few years ago where I hated shorts and would never wear them.  I think it was a body image thing, but I'm over that...thankgoodness!

I am a fan of the bold, bright colored pants and it translates well into shorts too!  I've also been seeing some flowey shorts and I'm loving those too.  And there are lots of fun patterns shorts I've been seeing lately too.  Don't be afraid to take a risk!  You might just find you favorite pair of shorts.

Mint is obviously so in this season and I've been hooked the second I saw mint "things."  I love the classic feel of this outfit with the pop of mint, which makes it a little fun.  I saw this clutch at J. Crew and feel in love with the sort of has a chevron look too.

Yellow and blue are a perfect combination.  I've never really loved yellow, but I totally had a change of heart this year.  It's so cheery, how can you not love it!  If I was going on vacation somewhere tropical, I'd totally wear this fun casual outfit.

I saw this top from J. Crew (totally out of my price range...btw), but I fell in love because I love how comfy it looks plus it's PINK.  And those shorts from J. Crew too look casual, yet fun.  I love the gold accessories with the pink and navy.  I wish I had all these pieces to wear today!

I'm linking up with the lovely {av} over at long distance loving for my Friday's Fancies.  Check out some of the other great outfits fellow bloggers have put together.  It's one of my favorite parts of the link up.

I'm excited about this weekend.  Mr. H and I will be headed to the lake again, but this time it will just be the two of us!  While it's fun to share the weekend with family I must say it's going to be really nice and relaxing with it being just Mr. H and I!!  We asked a few friends to join us, but everyone we asked already had plans.  It must have just been meant to be for it to be us!  I'm totally okay with that.

We'll have lots of lounge time, game playing, TV watching, maybe a boat ride, and hopefully I'll be able to paddle board again.  Last time the lake was too choppy and I wasn't about to try and then fall.  Ha.

I'll be packing some shorts to wear this weekend.  Even though it's just going to be us, I can still look fashionable...right!!

I went shopping yesterday at Nordstroms Rack, and got some SUPER cute summer clothes. I think you'd be proud of me. I shall have to email you photos. Anyway, my favorite shorts I just bought.
