I hope everyone is having a great week! My "staycation" has hit the spot and feels like the exact break I've been needing. I mean, this outfit was taken on Tuesday and I'm wearing shorts! I could never wear something like this for work. I bought these last Summer when I became obsessed with Loft's Summer collection. I do admit that they fit a bit better last year. Since my wedding, I've managed to gain about eight pounds so I'm working on losing them through eating healthier and exercising more. It's a constant struggle, but I know most of you ladies understand what I'm talking about so I won't go into any details (they aren't that interesting anyway. I was seeing a personal trainer for six months and stopped going due to cost so I'm on my own. Hubby and I are trying to get a good work-out routine going again). Anyway, I still love these orchid lace shorts and refuse to keep them tucked away because of a few lb's. How foolish that would be in this crazy heat! Paired with sparkle, sparkle, and more sparkle, they still made me feel fabulously Summery nonetheless.


  1. Those shorts are darling! I am glad that you have been having fun on your staycation.

  2. Love the color combo and your flats!! I definitely need to pair orchid with silver.


  3. Gorgeous pairing with the lavender! Those flats... kind of kicking myself. ;)


  4. Love those orchid shorts!! Very pretty for summer. :)

  6. Great shorts. I love Loft! I totally understand the weight struggle. It's so hard to find a routine and time to be the healthiest version of yourself. You look amazing!

  7. I am trying to get back into working out, too, so I can commiserate with you! (as I just ate frozen custard…) Glad your staycation was great! This is the perfect summer look and I love how you've mixed your metals! Carylee | morepiecesofme.com

  8. You look gorgeous Noelle, and I see we have the same favorite summer outfit! (Portofino + shorts FTW!) I love how you added sparkle here and there but it's so tastefully done and not blingy or obnoxious. At all! That's great that you and your husband are working together to keep each other motivated! It always helps to have a live-in support system!
