Stripes and Brights

July 23, 2012

Last weekend we took a mini getaway to Orlando so I indulged in wearing the most summery clothes I have. In a day and half I must have donned three bathing suits, swim covers, and the brightest, comfiest clothes I own. Adore these new neon coral chino shorts from J. Crew I recently found on sale and paired it with stripes. Some of these photos don’t do the brightness of these justice… follow on Instagram (@avggirlsguide) for a great close-up. Proof of the brightness: As we were walking at dusk, my husband joked if we got separated my daughter should just look for mommy by searching out her bright shorts. I’ve now worn them again this past weekend both days (shhh, our secret). Have to get my use while I can!

 And, couldn’t resist this pic…. (daughter’s dress: j. crew, gem sandals via target). Can you tell we love stripes?
