I Feel Pretty | Chambray, Pink and Whales

My style goal this summer was to break out of the daily summer rut of my typical tank top, shorts and flip flops.  It may not sound that hard but it has been.  Mainly because it’s HOT in Texas so that severely limits my options, especially when it comes to layering.

So when I paired up this outfit wearing my favorite chambray, a bubblegum pink tank and my embroidered whale shorts, I was pretty excited.  The layers are light enough to work even on a hot day and let’s talk about these shorts for a second.  I may have squealed with delight (and embarrassed my daughter) when I found them at Marshall’s.  They are just so darn cute!  Every time I wear them, I get compliments from strangers.  (You can find some similar pairs here and here.)
