Gold Coast // Summer (please stay forever)

Hello sunshines!

Cheers to Wednesday and only having two days left in the work week. So last Friday, my quest to satisfy a sweet tooth and to get a beerita (an upside down corona in a margarita) turned into an impromptu Friday evening photo shoot. It was an extremely rainy week last week, so I was so happy when the weather was nice and the sky was blue Friday after work, especially since we only have so many summer days left (*sign*). What I have on are pieces of clothing that I’ve owned for years – my navy anchor print shorts is from J.Crew and my cream tie-back tank is from Asos. We were walking down Oak Street, which is home to many many luxury boutique, and light bulb went off in my head to pose by these stores....hopefully one of these days I'll be in a position to actually walk in (HAHA $$$$)!!!

I haven’t worn my navy anchor print shorts yet this ENTIRE summer so I had to pull them out for at least one wear before the fall gets here. My motto is to buy quality & classic pieces of clothing that lasts for years and that never go out of style! With fall on the horizon, I’ve started to look for on sale patterned shorts to stock up for next summer & beyond.

I'm still super obsessed with the new pieces of jewelry from my collaboration with Audaviv. Silver and rose gold, my two favorites to mix and match. Like I mentioned in my last post, the bracelets and rings are all adjustable, which is perfect for my tiny wrists and fingers :)! Check out Audaviv for your next new pieces of jewelry @ www.audaviv.com and use code GIRLS&THREADS for 15% off - free intl shipping included!

And....of course had to take a picture of the reason that led to this photo shoot....my Sprinkles Red Velvet cupcake :). YUM.

Top: Asos (similar here from Urban Outfitters only a few sizes left...Urban typically has more tie-back tanks so you could wait and see if they have more styles in the future, here from Vickerey ($$$), here from Lanston) // Shorts: J.Crew (old - see below for patterned shorts I'm eyeing) // Bag: Kate Spade // Necklace: Stella & Dot (old - here and here for cute layering pieces from Stella & Dot) // Bracelets & Rings: Audaviv // Shoes: Kelly & Katie ( I have these in cream lace as well - super comfortable & cute)

Last of all, below are some of the on sale patterned shorts that I am eyeing to wear next summer (all are from Nordstrom...some really cute ones from there!):
