Talk about a busy weekend!  I had a todo list that went down to my knees, but I was able to knock out almost everything {my mani/pedi unfortunately didn't make the cut}.   For today, I needed an outfit that was going to go from a dim sum brunch, to an oil change, to grocery shopping, and finally to a house-sitting checkup.  It was definitely going to be a day of driving all around town!

To stay comfortable {and stylish!}, I decided to pair a loose oversized sweater with some short shorts.  I stumbled across these linen shorts at Forever 21 when I went on a hunt for khaki clothing just before my safari, and couldn't pass them up.  They're perfect for the summer and I love the vibrant blue color.  They weren't safari-appropriate {blue = mosquitos!} but it was first on my "to wear" list when I returned home!

I think the baggy sweater perfectly balanced out the short shorts and the nude sandals gave my legs an little oomph in the length department.  Funny enough, when Adrian and I were grocery shopping, he laughed when he noticed another girl checking me out head to toe as I walked by and then stumbling as she tried to walk with her head still turned my way.  Oh the shenanigans you get when grocery shopping in 5" heels.  :)

And in case you missed it, I have a new giveaway:  $100 gift card for Fresh Faces mineral makeup!  I've been using this makeup non-stop.  In case you're interested, here's a little closeup of what I wore today:

You can also get 20% off at Fresh Faces right now with code CUTEANDLITTLE20!

And just because I really liked this picture, I had to sneak it in.  If you're ever in the Uptown area of Dallas, you have to ride the trolley.  Best part, it's free

    Kileen I don't post a comment that often but I have to say that I really love this blog and your wonderful sense of style. You are really an inspiration. I also got that bag because of you! Even though I never buy leatherette. I figured I would try it out and plan on wearing it with a maxi dress later this week.
    Anyways I can see why the girl almost hurt herself looking at you! ;-)

  8. LOL at the girl stumbling bc she was starring at you. In college, I walked past these 2 girls that literally stopped conversation just to give me a once-over. I'll just take that as a compliment HAHAHA

    I see that the F21 "Alexa" bag is holding up well even after your honeymoon!

  9. KILEEN! I think this is my most favorite outfit of yours. I love how you paired the browns and blues together, and who can turn down an M street trolley ride? Your posts always make me homesick for Dallas. Hope you have an amazing week! xo

    ReplyDelete

    it for pictures!

    ReplyDelete

    has changed so much over the years!

  22. my F21 "Alexa" bag is definitely my fave bag right now! i decided not to
    take it to Africa on my honeymoon though. everything I took on that trip
    was covered in so much dust and dirt that I'm sure this bag would've been
    destroyed. even my black Jansport backpack that i took is now brown, lol!

  23. You look so pretty in a light mocha colour!  I've tried this sweater on before and let's just say it looks WAY better on you!  And..I love the cute hair piece!  Looks like you had a nice weekend :)

  24. Hi there! So this may sound really bizarre but....would you ever consider doing a post on your closet?? I saw a blog post like that recently and thought of you! :) just wondering how you keep all your goodies neatly tucked away. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the Trolley shots! Super cute. The outfit just screams "fashionable summer" which is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would definitely consider a closet post! I actually need to do a shoe
    collection post first and then a closet post! first i need to actually
    clean up my closet a little though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a lovely set of pictures! Loving your weekend attire, especially that purse.  It looks like the Mulberry purse I've been lusting after but at such a nicer price point! 

    ReplyDelete
  28. i've been lusting after the Mulberry too and this bag is definitely a more
    affordable option. i'm absolutely in love with it! :)

  29. I really dig the blue of those shorts. I'm so in love with bright, brilliant colours lately. I really have no idea why I've not participated in the Colour Brigade yet...

    I used it and I loved it! Now I want the real thing :-) I am doing a no shopping challenge until end of November so I can save up for a Bayswater or alexa or both (hubby might get one for me as a combined birthday and Christmas gift). Oh I don't take pictures often. If I did I would definitely post! It is really nice you took the time to respond to my comment.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love your makeup! The blue shorts go really well with your neutral outfit!
