Shorts Obsession

27 May 2011













If there is one thing that catches my eye it is quirky little details. Whether it be
interesting buttons or tiny bows, I am just a sucker for 'em! So naturally I have
become super obsessed with these Romwe shorts! First of all the color is so much
fun for summer. The bright shade of blue/green totally brightens up my day.
And secondly I love that they are totally 1960's inspired. I paired it with this
pale pink top for a fresh and summery look. Yet another piece with another detail
I love-a scalloped trim! The last photo is another way that I styled it the other day.

Anyway for those of you who do not know, I have not made it to Philly yet! The
Dallas airport I was flying out of apparently had damage from the tornadoes/storms.
Several flights were delayed at DFW so my flight got pushed back to tomorrow, Saturday
morning. I was a little bummed, I'll admit, but I am just thankful that my friends, family
and I were safe from all of the crazy storms that have hit the south/Midwest lately.
When I think about the terrible hardships that Joplin and other cities are facing
right now, I cannot complain one bit. My heart goes out to all of those who got
affected by the tornadoes.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful Friday. My next post will most definitely
be straight from Philly!! I have a few girls that I just cannot wait to meet up with-
Dylana from Color Me Nana, Veronika from Tick Tock Vintage, and Kim
from eat.sleep.wear. These bloggers have made me super excited for my new
adventures in the city. Lots of updates to come!

PS- The winner of the BonLook giveaway is Alexa from A Life In the Fashion Lane.
Congrats dear!

I've been stocking up on quite a bit of shorts, too, and I have one pair in the similar mint color. I love how you complemented the bright and the neutral, it's a very pretty look!

The tornadoes in this region have been pretty disheartening and scary, not to say that least. Just hoping we don't get any additional severe weather. Can't wait to see your new post from Philly!

I love, love these shorts! Perfect for summer!

If anyone shops at Old Navy (at least in Kansas and Missouri), you'll get 10% off your total purchase between now and June 6 if you purchase an item for the Joplin, MO tornado victims. They are accepting shirts, pants, baby clothes, socks and canned goods. All items will be sent to the Red Cross.

Hi Bonnie! I just wanted to say that I've just found your blog, well through your twitter, and I absolutely love it! You have amazing style and I must say that I adore these shorts, probably because I'm a sucker for such cute little details too.. I keep telling myself to buy classics but it doesn't seem to be working.
Anyway I hope you're well, I can't wait to have a little read through some of your posts.
