It's officially shorts season in Nashville!!!
CORRECTION: it's officially shorts season for Nashville transplants from Minnesota who believe anything above 50 degrees is tanning-on-the-beach weather. Which means my enthusiasm for high waisted shorts, sunglasses and kimonos is in full force.
Speaking of Minnesota, I got these big, wonderful bug-eye sunglasses while we were touring there last month. I saw a similar pair at Urban Outfitters for a couple bucks less, but decided to keep my FP sunnies because the temples of the glasses are much thinner. Glasses give me a headache pretty easily, which is why I wear contacts most days instead of my prescription lenses. But if thick temples don't bother you, ZeroUV has a nearly identical pair for $9.99!
TBH, 90% of the shoes I own are from DSW. I am obsessed. They've got a fantastic sale section and deals up the whazoo (as in $20 OFF COUPONS have been known to show up in my email inbox). I'd been on the hunt for a pair of black summer sandals, when lo and behold, I fish these Calvin Klein beauties out of the clearance section. The gold detailing on the heels won me over.
Now to address the anomaly in this fashion post: I am holding a book. I live five minutes from a hair salon with pink and white walls, so it seemed perfect to showcase my current read: Lena Dunham's Not That Kind Of Girl. I'd been wanting to read it for the longest time, and waited patiently until I spotted it at Target with a 30% off sticker (which made it cheaper than Amazon, my go-to "book store"). I like owning books because I can take my dear sweet time and pass them onto friends afterwards. Plus, there's nothing like a leafing through the pages of a crisp, new book...ahhhhh :) Not That Kind Of Girl is chalk full of blunt honesty, little nuggets of wisdom, and feels like the conversations you have with your girlfriends that remind you you're not the only one experiencing these strange, beautiful, confusing situations as you attempt to navigate this crazy world.
