A Short Story

The Rubell Family Collection in Wynwood
{ZARA Blouse & Pink Shorts – BCBGMAXAZRIA Clutch – Bebe Studded Wedges
Henri Bendel & Forever 21 Bracelets – Lola Sunnies}

You first got a peek at this look in Microsoft Aims for Style in Miami. Funny thing is, this outfit almost didn’t happen. Let me explain… When I heard that ZARAone of my favorite places to shop, had just completely overhauled their Dadeland Mall store I was conflicted about whether or not to check it out. Fellow bloggers & friends warned of the major amounts of cash I would drop just by walking through the shiny glass doors. Some even likened it to the devil- but I went anyway! (They were right.) I loved these amazing pink tweed shorts at first glance, but my shopaholic guilt started to cloud my judgement. Are pink shorts a good investment? Will I get enough wear out of them? Good thing I shut off that little voice because I took them home and have been wearing them with everything! Here I paired them with an awesome floral silk blouse that I purchased during the same fateful shopping trip. Other options for pink shorts? A chambray shirt, sleeveless white button down, sheer blush tank… Moral of the story: If you’re second guessing investing in a piece that seems risky, think again! A bright basic like pastel shorts or printed pants can be the breath of fresh air your wardrobe needs. Shake things up and try something new this summer- you may end up loving the unexpected.

      Thank you! Glad I got these wedges before they sold out. They remind me of the Valentino rock studs (dream shoes!) 🙂
