Outfit Post: Floral Shorts + Studded Ankle Boots







 
Prabal Gurung for Target floral shorts (similar here & here {on sale!}) || Zara studded ankle boot (similar here) || GiGi New York Uber Clutch in Indigo c/o || Michael Kors "Bradshaw" rose gold watch || J. Crew classic pavé chain link bracelet || Dogeared butterfly necklace c/o LuckyFabb West
 
You know that moment when you feel like you've finally hit your stride again? Well I don't quite have that feeling just yet.. but I am super excited about the direction our lives are taking. I think we've finally got our feet back on the ground, the dust is almost settled and I have [mostly] accepted that we are in NC.
 
I had lots of mini-dates, lunches and cocktails with new ladies last week and a shopping trip with my mom really prompted my change in attitude. My husband also went on a boys trip this weekend which allowed me to finally get my closet organized - I'll have to share some pics with you guys! I know that it will still take some time (we've only been here for 2 months!) but it's nice to be on the other side of the spectrum.. even if not towards the end yet :)
 
Speaking of mini-dates this is one of my outfits from lunch last week. It's like 90 plus degrees here but I still can't let go of my ankle booties. They're my freaking favorite and no amount of heat can stop me from wearing them. I'm practically living in the ankle boots and shorts combo. Do you have a crazy ridiculous favorite thing you wear not matter the weather? Come on and share.. don't make me feel alone! Happy Monday!
