A Sucker for Seersucker (Shorts).

     Summer fashion is my favorite, and I try to incorporate my favorite elements of it into my wardrobe all year round: things like touches of Lilly Pulitzer or pops of color, or even pairing some of my favorite transitional sundresses with scarves and tights for the cooler months! But there are some summer fashion pieces that sadly just do not work all year round. The good part of this is they're just that much more special to wear during the months when it is acceptable! A perfect example of what I'm speaking of would be something like these darling purple seersucker bow shorts from Lauren James. 

     The name of this blog is "Southern Belle in Training," and to me these shorts would be apart of any Southern Belle's summer wardrobe! The fun bow adds such a cute and unique feminine touch, and they are the perfect piece to be dressed up or down. Lauren James sells these shorts in a variety of fun seersucker colors! 

     Also- how pretty is this darling little bouquet of Trader Joe's flowers?! Under $5 to add a splash of fresh blooms and happiness to your day. I actually picked these up as a little apartment housewarming present for my Little and her boyfriend- right after these pictures were taken, I went to visit their new apartment for the first time! But the flowers were so pretty that I had to steal them first for these photos (and these!). Hope you didn't mind Julie! ;-)
