Pretty pastels

Hooray! Cast is gone. Photoshoot posts are back. Get excited yall!

Even though it's been a couple of months, clearly I'm still not over the pastel trend. But I don't have to be, do I?

I got these fabulous Different Stokes Shorts from Sugarlips right about the time I fell at the climbing gym and broke my arm. Yep, pretty traumatic, considering I wouldn't even let myself wear them until they had been photographed (Why you ask? Because I am beyond clumsy. Who knows what I could've spilled on them). Thankgoodness I live in the south where it stays warm enough for shorts until at least October! 

Oh but don't worry I also can't wait to pair these hotties with a patterned top and some tights/boots for the fall/winter months. I mean, these shorts are so cute and comfy that I have to wear them year round. 

Do you want a random sidenote/fun fact? Ok, we all know that is a rhetorical question and you're going to get one regardles, sorry. Basically I just need yall to know that the first day back on the "job" got attacked, yes attacked, by mosquitos during this shoot. 

I'm talking like at least 20 bites resulting in major welts and itching so severe and intense it felt like poison was coursing through my veins. My photographer ended up shoving Benedryl down my throat the second we got back to her house. I think this is what we in 'the biz' call "blogger problems"?

Ok enough chit chat. Down to business...
