Friday my husband and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary. We are such homebodies that we stayed in the entire day and just relaxed. My husband made Salmon with Green Pea Mash for lunch and Steak with Red Wine Sauce and Smashed Potatoes for dinner. Both were incredible and I honestly can not choose a favorite.
For the longest time, I didn’t have shorts in my wardrobe. A Vegas trip last year meant they needed to happen. Shorts drive me bananas. If the inseam is too short they ride up, and then I’m constantly having to pull at them. Because of the insanely hot weather we’ve been having, shorts are the best option for beating the heat. Since I love printed pants, I had to get a pair of printed shorts. These black & white stripes were perfect. To glam things up a bit, I added a pop of color up top and a pair of statement earrings. Unintentionally, this outfit ended up resembling a bumble bee. Hopefully a cute one.

Ugh I have the same problem with shorts. Everywhere I go, they’re always too short! I do think loft and gap have some great, more modest options 🙂 I just love this color combo. And happy anniversary!!
So glad I’m not the only one who has a hard time finding shorts.
