last days of summer

last days of summer

As you might have noticed, I leveraged the last few days of summer to wear my purple Ksubi shorts that I most recently nabbed on the Shopbop sale. I've noticed purple creeping its way into my wardrobe lately. Such a tricky color. I don't always know what to do with it, but it's kind of like one of those smiley, happy people you can't help but like.

How awesome is this belt? B's grandmother gave it to me for Christmas last year.

Currently sipping a Pimm's Cup that my lovely husband made for me, watching some trashy television, and catching up on my blog reading - can't think of a better way to end an already-relaxing Labor Day weekend! Hope you all had a nice weekend, too!

  3. That's always how I like to end my weekends too! I love your purple shorts and I have also found myself wanting to bare the holy moly out of my legs before I can't anymore.

    Your belt is fabulous! What a great gift!

  5. Oh, those shorts are really wonderful!
    I've always had a soft spot for purple, and these are an especially nice shade.

    Chic on the Cheap

  9. Even on our hottest-hottest summer day here in the UK this outfit would be (sadly) very underdressed. All the better to see it on you in the glazing sunlight.
    Purple - I guess you can only love it or hate it; and the belt is a such wonderful present.

  10. Purple is one of my favorite colors, but you're right--it's often tricky to style. But those shorts are dynamite on you, especially with the stripes and accessories. But don't put them away just yet--they'll look gorgeous with tights and those killer booties of yours, especially with a slouchy sweater.

  11. Those shorts look really good on you! I'm lamenting the end of the summer but it's raining here all week, so no fun summer outfits for me! :(

  14. I love the belt. It's so 80's and glam. I struggle with bold colors in my daily outfits. You look so fab in those shorts.

  21. Okay. Your belt rocks! And yay to wearing purple. It's my favorite color. Didn't you feel all royal-like when wearing the purple shorts? No? Alrighty, I'll keep it moving.
