AJ Wears :: Floral Shorts

Behold, the compliment shorts. No matter where I wear these things, someone stops me to compliment them. I'm not sure why I wear anything else.

Funny story about these shorts, though. They were almost the shorts that weren't. I had to make an exchange with Trunk Club and told my stylist she could toss some other stuff in there for me to check out. It was a particularly busy week so I didn't really get to do a full try-on and blog post, but the morning I was boxing everything up I picked up this bag and said, "Oh, this is a cute print. Are those shorts?" Mr. AJ and I are literally about to walk out the door and I ran to the bedroom to try these on. He was watching me try to shimmy into these shorts saying, "You're never gonna get those on." Which only made me shimmy harder because DARNIT I KNEW THEY'D FIT.

They just needed a little coercion. I was in a hurry, after all, and elastic is a stubborn beast. I took one look in the mirror and said, "Okay, those are cute," before tossing them aside and taking the rest of the trunk down to be picked up.

Long story longer, they fit, this was a great impulse buy, and I've worn them almost once a week since. They're not super expensive and look way cuter in person than on the website, so I'd give them a try if they have your size (these are the large and I'm a fairly solid 8/10 these days).

AJ Wears :: Wide Navy Pants

Y'all know I love full disclosure. These pants didn't zip all the way up today. So I found a shirt that would cover the zipper, and I went to work, because I'm fabulous and I don't need my pants to zip. I got these pants in NICE, FRANCE, yo. Pretty sure people are a lot smaller there because they only eat cheese and bread or something. Am I gonna let slightly small pants ruin my day? No way, Rosé.

Most people complimented my shirt anyway.

Lol. Sorry everything today is so old.

AJ Wears :: A Navy Dress

I should be ashamed, putting up a Fourth of July outfit on the FIFTH. But, I wore it on the fourth and then I went to bed when I was done watching fireworks, so what's a girl to do? Coming up later this week: A romper I wore five days ago. Clearly, timeliness and the blog don't mix.

If nothing else...you can never accuse me of putting things on the blog I didn't wear. Now if you'll excuse me, I have an American Flag tattoo I need to scrub off my face. It's been there since Sunday. America!

Dress, Tibi (rent it // buy it // similar for less).
Wedges, ShoeDazzle (another perfectly patriotic pair).
Bag, Kate Spade (similar from Forever 21).
