little arrows

This weekend went by much too quickly. It ended up raining all day on Friday so instead of spending the day at the beach, JD and I ran some errands, visited with family, and watched They Came Together. I really enjoyed the cameos, especially Jack McBrayer's very Kenneth like character. I miss 30 Rock. The rain finally cleared up in time for fireworks so we drove down to the dock and watched some local displays. The house right across the canal from us had some pretty serious fireworks that were exploding right above the car. It was wonderful.

I wore this Saturday evening out for a casual dinner & dessert date with JD. After spending the day at the beach getting an awkward sunburn just sitting on the deck at the house, I covered up with a lightweight sweater. I'm loving the silky shorts trend, they are seriously so comfortable, and I know these are technically from the "loungewear" section but I couldn't resist. The first thing I said when I tried them on was "these shorts would be so perfect in Tortola". When I pack for that trip, or any trip really, I try to pick things that can be worn multiple ways and days to get the most out of my suitcase (i.e. to dinner one night and to the beach the next day). These will definitely be making the list. I'm looking forward to dressing them up a bit more next time. 

I hope you had a great weekend, thank you for reading!

  17. I got the most awkward sunburn too... down the right side of my face and behind my ear. Unfortunately there isn't a cute sweater cover up available for this situation.

    LOVE these shorts and your hairstyle is just stunning!
