I found these shorts the other day tucked away in some of my warmer things as I was pulling some things for fall outfits. (Which, for the record, was a presumptuous move. I could go swimming today and not get chilled.) Every once in a while, I'll forget about a piece that I own and then I rediscover it in my closet again and wear it more than before or sometimes I buy something a season too early and then find that I wear it all the time in the present season. These things don't surprise me. What does surprise me is I can't for the life of me remember when or how I bought these shorts. And I remember everything when it comes to clothes. Some people call it obsessive; I call it a natural ability. The only thing I know about these shorts is that they are from Gap last fall and they are in my size. But to be honest at this point I'm not even sure if they are mine. 

Is anyone missing a cute pair of shorts? Have you come in contact with me in the last 12 months? Did you leave your bag unattended at an airport or at a recent sleepover with me? You have 24 hours to claim or they are mine.

  10. Those shoes! Why haven't I seen them on Sole Society?!?!

    I love finding shit in my closet I totally forgot about. It does make me super sad when it still has a tag on it.....

  11. Love it! That's such a great blazer. I really have to start going to Gap more often. I always mean to, but get distracted by other stores in the vicinity, like J. Crew and Loft. 

    And your shoes are divine. Like all your shoes. You should show us your closet one of these days. I bet it's all kinds of pretty.

    Isn't it awful that all I can think of when I think "black and yellow" in my head is that awful Wiz Khalifa song?

  26. I would seriously consider stealing that blazer right off you! I love the darker cuffs and how well it fits you - maybe I just need another blazer? anyway, love the mix of colors and hope that you get to keep the shorts!!! :D

  37. Would it be weird if I told you I was looking through some of your posts from last fall just the other day (for outfit inspiration) and you were wearing these shorts, so when I saw them in today's post I thought to myself, "Hey, Kendi just wore these the other day!"  And then I read the story about the shorts and how you don't remember getting them.  And then I realized that I feel kind of like a stalker...  So, anyways, I loved the shorts when you wore them last fall and still love the shorts for this fall.  :)

  41. I really love this outfit! I mean I usually love your outfits but this blazer is amazing! And the shoes! And the purse! I want to love blazers but I always feel like I'm wearing a straitjacket...

  42. I like how the blazer makes it work-like but the shorts still make it heat-friendly (I almost wrote summer-friendly but it is officially fall!)

  52. I too have a knack for remembering where I got something, when I got it, how much it cost, and every time I've worn it (without looking at my blog archives). I can't say I've ever found something that I don't remember purchasing. You should definitely be suspicious. I hope they aren't exploding shorts...do you hear a ticking sound? On the plus side, if you're going to explode today and you're going to be remembered by your last outfit, this is a cute one.
