I finally received my yellow bubble necklace and, shocker, I'm totally smitten.  I find myself grabbing for the turquoise one almost daily and I'm sure y'all are about sick of looking at it.  When I find something I really, really love, I tend to buy it in multiples and the bubble necklace is just one of those things.

Today was the first really hot day here in Texas and shorts were a must.  I kind of have a love/hate relationship with shorts but they are a necessary evil in such a hot climate but I don't always feel super confident in them.  I've mentioned before that I have a really small waist but a big butt and legs, so my solution is always to buy shorts that are at least 2 if not 3 sizes bigger than my normal pant size.  I don't like the look of tight shorts and I hate for them to dig into my legs when I sit.  These shorts are a great fit for me because they actually zip on the side instead of having a normal zip fly and button. I also always leave or have the pockets sewn on most of my shorts so they don't gape open.  I'm not going to carry anything in the pockets anyway, so it's fine by me.

How do y'all feel about shorts?  I would almost always choose a dress or skirt instead, but I'm trying to be a little more open minded with my options.  Summertime is officially here!

  1. The necklace is great in yellow Sarah!

    I'm a huge fan of shorts and also make sure they're not too tight/at least 1 size bigger..couldn't close the pockets though, love having those there to shove my hands in when I feel awkward!

    You rock them hun - should wear them more often!

  2. I think we're body twins! I also tend to avoid shorts, but these look amazing on you. I've had other j crew pairs and they didn't fit this well.

  3. Flippin' adorable!! The whole outfit is perfection, but the yellow bubble necklace takes it to the next level. Oh, and your MJ bag is incredible! :)
