Last night I went with a good friend to happy hour where we shared drinks, appetizers, and laughs. I don't have a very large circle of friends, but the relationships I have are close and very dear to me. Spending time with my friends gives me so much energy. I feel so blessed to have the people I have in my life; if only everyone could be so lucky to have friends like mine I think the world would be a better place.

This outfit kind of happened by accident since these shorts have been out of commission since I first bought them. When they came in the mail the hook part of the hook and bar closure was falling off, something I don't expect from a brand of this caliber. I still haven't sewn it back on because it's not a priority and I'm irked that I have to in the first place. Still, the shorts are great. They are lined and made out of some pretty sumptuous peachskin fabric. I want to make a pair sort of like this but a bit longer and in colors and fabric better suited to the upcoming fall season. I imagine wearing them with tights and cute ankle booties...a sketch is in order.

Hoping your week is getting off to a good start. Until next time,
