don't get waisted.

 the weekends have been flying by.
the good thing is that they have been filled
to the brim with good times.
in between the weird summer rain showers,
we have been blessed with glorious sunshine as well
and have been taking full advantage of it.
we spent both days at the beach swimming, stand-up paddling, body surfing, and picnicking.
i was even able to meet up with some friends
for an adult beverage...or two.

i got these shorts during the birthday shopping spree a couple months ago. it was a down-to-the-last-second impulse grab that i knew i probably wouldn't wear. although i love the look of
high-waisted shorts, it makes my already short torso
look even shorter.

  1. I am pretty sure these don't make you look short at all. It is amazing how tall you always look in pictures. I love shorts on you and the hat is a great touch!

  5. I am loving the hat and the wedges. The wedges look like the cream ones I have but mine are that cheap soda brand.
    Your purse is also very pretty.

  18. The shorts are so cute. I know what you mean about how it can make your torso shorter. I have the same problem. What saves you is your long lean legs.

  27. Since you're leggy, I don't think those high-waisted shorts make you look out of proportion. You look fab. Love the crochet purse and the necklace.
