x marks the spot

DSC00950 We're half way through our summer, and I'm almost done with my summer prosection job in the cadaver lab. The last five weeks have had a ton of events stuffed in, including family commitments, concerts, camping, and baseball games, and the next five are just as packed! We are going to Seattle for a whole week starting next week, and then more camping, baseball games, and enjoying the last few weeks of freedom. 

I've loved having this time to pick and choose what I want to do and wear. I'm sure you've noticed that these shorts have been on constant rotation, and that's because they are just so dang comfortable in the hot weather. Old Navy currently has a 30% off online sales [code: SURPRISE, ending the 1st], and I plan on picking up the grey pair as well. Based on the cost per wear, they'll cost me pennies in the end!

  1. I love this look (and have copied it shamelessly), but I adore that X ring. I'm so sad that Baublebar charges ridiculous amounts to ship to Canada. So sad! I've been looking for a ring like that for a year :( I'm jelly, is all.

    1. If you want, you can have them ship it to me (because of the free shipping in the US) and I bet I could get it up to you relatively cheap (at least much cheaper than what they would charge!). Let me know :)

  2. Umm, that top is lovely, and I just realized that I own a sleeveless look alike. I'm so glad you decided to keep it! Oh, Fran, you and your inspiration. Also, I felt a little alarmed when I didn't see you wearing glasses. I don't know why it alarmed me. Creature of habit, I suppose? Or, just your run-of-the-mill weirdo.

    1. I know girl! I think I look so much better with glasses on, but in the summer and being outside, sometimes I just need the freedom of sunglasses ;)

  3. I love the top! It looks really light and perfect for the warm weather! If I remember correctly, it's from Loft, right!?

    1. This one is from ASOS actually - a little pricey but I think it'll be super versatile! They keep having popbacks show up if you are interested in keeping an eye on it!

  5. Summer vacation is the best. I feel like I'm a better person because I got a break from the people that drove me insane during school!

  7. I have the black and grey pairs of these shorts, and I am starting to feel bad for all of my other shorts because they are just not getting worn this summer. They are perfect. Love this top! I'm glad you are enjoying your summer!

  11. I am envious of your break - I'm in desperate need of one! Thanks for the heads up on the shorts; I may need another pair or two for vacation. :)

  12. This blouse looks gorgeous on you!!!!! And I NEED this nail polish color and ring. Yes to everything you are wearing :)

  13. I'm just loving that ASOS top on you! I've recently become obsessed with ASOS (two orders in one month...ooops) and this top is in the process of convincing me to place another order!

  14. Love these simple neutral pieces - they come together to make a classic, put together look.

  15. They look great on you! I think a gray pair is well worth the money spent if you're going to wear them near as much as the black ones. I can tell you have a lot more freedom because all the back grounds in your pictures are different.

  17. Every time you post these shorts, I remember that I need to go buy them. I have the gray pair and love them, so I need to get the black pair! Shorts for the win!

  18. I love that blouse! It seems so light and cool without being too casual. It looks fantastic on you.

  19. Another perfect outfit, Fran! I love the details on this blouse, as well as that ring. I've been eyeing that style for a while now too... =)

  20. Love those shorts, they look comfortable -- and paired with the blouse it appears less casual. Perfecto!

  21. Sigh, that blouse :) So beautiful! I've been really into the blouse + shorts combo this summer as well - it's so comfortable, and I think it looks pretty polished :) I can't wait to hear all about your trip to Seattle - one of my favorite cities, and I'm dying to go back! My husband's cousin is getting married in Seattle this fall, so I realllly want to save up so we can fly out there for the weekend!!
