Lace Shorts & a Red Lip

Chicwish lace shorts c/o (on sale!!!) // similar striped long sleeve tee, love this top with lace sleeves
Celine sunglasses (not available online), really similar pair here & less expensive version here
Michael Kors straw bag (similar) // Michael Kors ceramic watch (similar)
Jack Rogers white sandals // Bracelets from J.Crew & my mom’s jewelry box
Essie nail polish in “mint candy apple” // Bare Minerals lipstick in “call the shots”

These lace shorts from Chicwish are a new favorite of mine (they are on sale right now – I also got these shorts too!). You can basically pair them with any color top, but I went with stripes because I’m diggin’ the nautical look right now (as you probably know if you’ve been reading my blog this summer). But seriouslyโ€ฆ lace, stripes and a red lip – that is a good outfit in my book! I’m also wearing my new Celine sunglasses in this post. There’s a store at Southpark Mall in Charlotte that carries themโ€ฆ I had been saving up and they had a 25% off sale so I just had to!! I can’t even find them online, but these Karen Walker ones are really similar and I love those too.

I’m super excited because my boyfriend is coming in town tomorrow to celebrate my birthday with me! He has some sort of “surprise” planned out (don’t worry y’all, it’s not a diamond ring) and he gave me strict instructions to be ready at 6:30 p.m. This is VERY unusual for him because the boy never plans anything, so I’m excited to see what he has up his sleeve ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyways, hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!

P.S. Don’t forget about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on – you can shop my favorites here!
