Typically living in Texas I embrace the little bit of cold weather we have because I know how hot it will be soon enough but enough is enough! Oh my goodness this stretch of cold, dreary, rainy weather just really makes me want to do nothing but spend the day in my pj’s snuggled up at home. While that is all good for a day or two it really doesn’t fit my personality very well. I need me some sunshine! Today’s forecast looks hopeful so I’m spending a little time encouraging the sun….come on little buddy…I know you can do it!!
If all else fails……
Maybe a little sunny shopping will help! I happened to receive a flash sale notification yesterday from J. Crew Factory and couldn’t help but take a peak at the Spring items. Do I even need to say anything about these shorts?? I had a credit at J. Crew Factory for a late return (obviously I have a habit of this) so these babies are on their way to me! I had never tried J. Crew shorts prior to last year but found them based on Shay’s recommendation and I love them. I typically have trouble finding a short to fit my thighs and waist but these hit just perfectly. You can find these shorts here. If you love the pattern but shorts are not your thing, you can find this same pattern in a scarf here or a dress here.
I also ordered these because I think with the discount they were like $19 so I couldn’t resist a color I don’t already have! The flash sale is no longer on but there is a 50% off sale so there are still some colors left in my fave 5 inch style for $24.50.
Dreaming of sunny travel too! We booked a getaway to California for March and I cannot wait! We will be staying in Marina del Rey to be near the team hotel and just seeing these views makes me feel a little warmer. This will be our first extended weekend alone since we traveled to Vegas in 2009! I’m really, really excited and will be working on planning some fun to fit in between baseball games. If any of you have any California favorites I would love to hear them! This will be our 4th trip to the LA area so we have pretty much done all the touristy things and I’ll be looking for some off the beating path fun.
Hope wherever you are today it is a sunny, beautiful day….if not in the sky at least in your heart!
