There comes a day every single Spring, with a full on freight train effect and without fail. It happens right as the cherry blossoms begin to bloom, as the sun takes a little extra time before sneaking off for the night.
It's like that time Beyoncé dropped that entire album on us and now a fashion line (BREAKING NEWS!) and we all pretend we never saw it coming...
What could it be? My fashion-loving girls, you already know: ITS SHORTS SEASON.
And here I am. All in it. I'll take mine in the pretty pastel variety, s'il vous plait.
Coming right behind it is SWIMSUIT SEASON! (Formerly known as "bikini season" but the one-piece is having a serious come back, trust the Queen). Over on instagram I'm begging for some self tanner help (with a suntan illusion filter), hoping all eyes go to Nashville's pretty lavender blooms and that sun flare first.
To kick it all up a notch I've committed to matching my outfit color palettes to my favorite flowers and carrying a purse full of ranunculuses (to distract from my pale stems) picked straight off the counter of a new East Nashville super star: FLWR Shop.
(You should see the wallpaper in this joint).
In all truths I love crop-top-fest-style-convertible-ridin-shorts-cuffed-up-floral-printed days.
You guys know that. I'd just like a little warning next time.
p.s. thanks to Banana Republic for forcing the issue.
p.p.s. no really.
