AJ Wears :: Anchor Shorts

Two things - I don't know what's happening. I remember Arkansas in August as moving into my dorm, sweating off about 25 lbs, and barely making it up and down the dorm stairs. So imagine my surprise at an Arkansas August that's amazing enough to sit on the patio at 4pm and then you need a sweater by 9! I'm in love. Secondly, today's ensemble is super chill but this is what I wear to run errands and patio drink. These espadrilles were an earlier summer purchase, but then I stepped in a giant mud puddle while I was walking my dog and almost destroyed them! After a Dawn and Shout bath, they're almost as good as new. To be honest, I really wanted the Tory Burch espadrilles, but they sold out and I'm not a gazillionare. Thanks, TJ Maxx!

PS - I accidentally published this like, last week. So if you've already seen it...oops! SAHRY. :)

Friday Favorites Remix :: Striped Blazer

Y'all. I LOVE this blazer. I don't know why I bought it, years ago, but it's absolutely one of my favorite pieces. It's that delicious stretchy jersey material so it's ridiculously comfy, and I seem to wear it year round. So seeing as how it's definitely a favorite - it was a no brainer for today's remix.

I found these anchor shorts at TJ Maxx when I was in Dallas and have been hanging on to them just waiting for summer. I'm aware that stripes + anchors is just about as much nautical anyone can take, so I went with pink instead of anything too "red white and blue".

What's with this look on my face? I think I might have accidentally taken this shot. Anywaysies, here's how I wore this blazer last week! Still mixing prints with bright colors. I might need some help breaking out of my shell this summer.

How did you guys re-wear your favorite pieces this week?? Link up below!

What I Wore :: Pool Party in the USA

I love a day off. Who doesn't? We spent our Wednesday off lounging by the pool and eating a brisket. Thank you, America, for being so awesome.

Today's summer duds are nautically inspired. Something about navy and anchors is just calling my name this summer. But instead of doing the typical red/white/blue with my sailor shorts, I decided to pump it up with a pop of pink.

Today's shoes brought to you by JustFabulous, some of my FAVORITES that I've ordered lately. Izzy comes in pink or yellow and she's just about as cute as can be! The rest of the outfit is Forever, minus my schnazy arm party which is BaubleBar, probably some quarter machine at a mexican food restaurant, and Target.

And just because I missed GPOYDW, Here's Zoey wearing a life jacket. She isn't much for swimming, but she's fast and looks stylish doing it.
