Thank you for all of the kind words about the Redbook award! You sure do know how to make a grown woman blush like a school girl. I slept with a smile on my face like a creepster last night. So thank you again, your kindness means a lot.
These shorts. These are the shorts that I put in my cart, took out of my cart, put in my cart, took out of my cart for the entire duration of the Nordstrom anniversary sale. I (obviously) ended up taking the plunge on the very last day. Once they arrived, I knew I made the right choice. I’m kind of on the ‘shop for fall’ kick right now so I’ve been drawn to mainly fall pieces anyways. I’m always on the fence when it comes to shorts in the fall. For me it works because Texas is hot until it’s not, you know what I mean? So I like the tougher feel of these shorts that definitely make them feel like fall. Plus I think that I’m into the tights under shorts thing again this year. I go back and forth with that trend each year (last year no) but this year I’m back with it. But let’s not talk about tights until we have to okay?

I also ended up browsing through Nordstrom’s Via C collection while I was contemplating the purchase of these shorts. Via C is their contemporary designers collections, I don’t usually find myself hanging around that department but I ended up finding a few things that I’d love to put on my high hopes list. (It’s like a wish list but with higher expectations.) Below I pulled a few of my favorites:
