Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was lovely. Mine was very productive, but pretty calm for a summer weekend. I worked/packed up until about 7pm on Friday, watched Ibiza (new Netflix movie!), and went to bed on the early side. Saturday was more working and packing – except I took the morning off to go to solidcore, try Limitless for the first time (holy matcha latte with oat milk, I will dream about you!), and pick up my Nordstrom order.
Adam had been out of town all week, so once he got back on Saturday night, we went out for tacos/margs and got excited about picking up the keys to our new place yesterday! (Eee! More updates when I move next week!) After that, I scooted off to celebrate National Ice Cream Day with Hudsonville (in linen shorts!) – and after multiple hours in the heat and humidity, I was ready for a shower and another early bedtime. But early to bed means early to rise, which is necessary for my schedule this week anyway, whether I like it or not ?
But before I dive into what’s going on the rest of this week, let’s talk about my new obsession: LINEN SHORTS. As someone who doesn’t have the smallest hips/thighs – shorts can be really hard to shop for. Especially when you’re over 30 and want to stay cool in the heat, but also don’t want your booty hanging out! Sound familiar? (I know I’m not the only one who struggles with this!)
Let me just say, there is definitely a time and place for jean shorts (hey Cubs games!), but a good pair can be super hard to find. I personally have a few pairs I love, but I won’t reach for them every day. But linen shorts? This option is lightweight and breezy – and if you find a good high waisted pair, SO FLATTERING. I’m also obsessed with the fact that I can pair them with a crop top, and I don’t feel like I’m showing too much skin, especially when it’s crazy hot out and you have to figure out a way to stay cool!
In addition to sharing this fun summer look, you can read a fun interview I did on Lux & Concord today! We talk all about Lake Shore Lady, work/life balance, how to disconnect, the toughest thing about being a blogger, and more! Read it here.
And because I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t inform you about a good sale, it’s Amazon Prime Day today! The deals don’t start until 2:00pm CST – and I’m definitely curious. Apparently there will be lots of markdowns on computers, phones, smart home products, home goods, kitchen gadgets and more! This could be perfect timing with my move next week…
Do you have any linen shorts?
Also, I’m heading to the Bay Area tomorrow morning for a quick 48 hour trip with Jewel-Osco. I don’t have much time to explore, but if you have any quick recommendations, let me know in the comments!
