These navy pleated shorts were another great find from the J.Crew sale (under $20!). The pleats and sophisticated fabric give them a bit of an upgrade so they can be worn dressy or casual. Probably not appropriate for most offices, I guess it depends on where you work, but definitely another perfect staple for summer and fall. I feel like this week is flying by, and tomorrow Craig and I are headed to NH for a few days to relax at his family’s lake house. We don’t travel often in the summer, why would you want to leave Newport? But I am so ready for a weekend full of relaxing, reading and swimming at the lake (no beach traffic up there!).  I’ve teamed up with a great group of bloggers for an awesome TopShop giveaway so make sure you enter below.


Who’s ready for another fabulous giveaway? This time we’re giving away a gift card to one of our favorite stores — Topshop! One lucky reader will have the chance to shop till they drop with a $300 Topshop gift card… and it just might be you.
