Stayin’ Cool

I’ve been super into shorts lately, which, I suppose, isn’t that noteworthy since it is summer.  However, my summer go-to for years’ past has always been skirts.  So, I’m not sure where this new-found affection is coming from…but I’m going with it.

On this particular day, I wore my favorite yellow shorts primarily because they matched my cute new necklace.  This necklace, by the way, came from a children’s store I just happened to visit with a friend.  You just never know where you’ll find $6 treasures!

After a weekend of perfect summer weather (sorry, Colorado friends!), there is some rain forecasted this week.  While I’m not super excited about that, I’d much rather the rain come when I have to go to work than when I want to be at the pool/lake/not work.

So, I’m choosing to focus on the positives, and what better way to do that than with this cheery yellow?  Honestly, is there any happier color than a bright, sunny yellow?  Wearing it reminds me of my Clinique Happy days in middle school.  I used to say I could not NOT be happy while wearing that perfume.  And then one day I woke up and my body chemistry had changed, and I’ve not liked it since.  I’m still a little sad about it.

  • My “special occasion” perfume, Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme Intense – even if it’s not a special occasion
  • Fancy cupcakes
  • A margarita after a day in the sun
  • Clean sheets (even better if I didn’t have to put them on)
  • A full Hulu queue of my favorite shows
  • Psalm 37

Those are a few of mine – what about you?  I can’t wait to hear your favorite things!
