Outfit Highlight: Summer Ease

Happy Tuesday, my friends!

I meant to post this yesterday but after a long drive back from Chicago, all I wanted to do was fall facedown on my comfy bed. We had great weather while in Chicago and I’m so glad all I had to pack were tees and shorts and not worry about the weather turning chilly.

I actually wore this outfit on our way to Chicago. To me, summer is all about casual, easy, fuss-free fashion and I think this outfit is the perfect example. There is an element of ease about the summer that I love. These scallop-hem tropical print shorts that I happened to find at Kohl’s has become one of my favorite pieces of the season. I’ve been wearing them like every other day, no joke. And I just love the drape of this Banana Republic stripe pocket tee. The cool and sheer fabric is perfect for summer.

My relaxed attitude is also spilling over to my blogging schedule. Since my girls are out of school, I just want to enjoy the good weather with them while it lasts. Lord knows our summers are short. As much as I love blogging and visiting other blogs, keeping a strict blogging schedule is not a priority right now as I realize that time with my family is precious and I may never get it back with my girls growing up so fast. Just keeping things in perspective.

  2. I can’t seem to follow a strict blogging schedule either. I hate the feeling of a hobby becoming a job with a strict schedule, I don’t want that to take the love out of it for me. LOVE the Lauren Conrad shorts.

  3. I love getting pattern mixing ideas, your outfit is so cute and I am styling floral shorts and a striped tee next Wednesday. Thanks for linking up to “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me”

  4. I know how you feel about a blogging schedule. I’ve been feeling so behind! But you are right. Take advantage of the present! 🙂

  5. Such a stylish tee & shorts, love it! The pattern on those shorts is great, too. I know, our summer is almost over… this Sunday, we’ll have 2 weeks left of summer! I can’t believe it. It is hard to blog while the kids are home from school and enjoying time with the kids is so much more important. I love Chicago and its not too far from St. Louis. We really need to plan a trip there soon!

  6. I love the look of floral on the bottom and stripes on top. I just did it recently with a skirt and tee. Love those shorts and sandals. Such a beautiful Summery Look, Cynthia. =)

  7. Those shorts are way too cute! Love the scalloped edge 🙂 Happy to have found you via the September Issue, looking forward to following along with your blog XO, Diana

  8. Hello beautiful Cynthia! Love your look and everything about it. Really like the stripes with the floral print together. The scalloped shorts are super adorable and the gladiators are to die for (I am obsessed with gladiators, did you know?) And I am so happy your are enjoying your time with your girls and you are right, it is the best thing to do as you won’t get that time back. Life is all about balance and you are right on track. Wanted to tell you that I saw you in In Style magazine!!!! Congratulations!!! I got so excited when I saw your picture and I was like: That is my blogging friend Cynthia! Look at her!!! Anyways, have an amazing weekend and keep having lots of fun. XOXO, Jeannette
