It’s been a crazy whirlwind of a weekend, but yesterday I had a wonderful time. Yesterday, my friend, Erica and I went around downtown, and did a little thrift shopping, while also snapping some photos. It’s finally getting warm enough for shorts, so that’s awesome! I did finally realize just how pale I am…it’s hard to tell I’m actually a California girl, I look like I spent months in Antarctica, or someone with very little sun! Anyway, I wanted to share my go-to transition outfit for Spring. Soon it’ll be too warm for it, but for now, I’ll be enjoying this look!

This outfit is super casual, with a touch of class! I like the idea of a classic blue blazer with shorts because it’s a little unusual. I feel like this outfit has a collegiate vibe, while still feeling young. I really adore a good blue blazer. Here’s to tanning soon, and relaxing on the beach with a good novel in the coming month!
The weather is starting to get to that point where shorts or short sleeves are an absolute must if you wish to avoid burning up. I love short season because I get to wear my J Crew chino shorts again! There is something about brightly colored, tailored shorts that make me feel ready for whatever I planned in the day. This color was on sale this season, so I took advantage of that and picked up a pair.
Every year, the first few times I wear shorts, I feel kind of weird. During the winter months, I avoid shorts at all cost and live in jeans and leggings. The first time I wear shorts I feel like I have alien legs or something. I know that sounds weird, but it’s true! I was also cursed (or blessed if you’re into the milky white skin) with a very very light complexion. Where I’m from, most people tan all year long, and never really go “all natural” as far as skin goes, so my skin also seems almost transparent when I first start wearing shorts. In recent years, I’ve learned to embrace my pale skin, but sometimes it’s a challenge. I think most girls feel a little more glamorous when their skin has a golden tone to it.
On another note, I got this sweater at Old Navy! Talk about a score. I love anything with a nautical theme, so I immediately jumped on this sweater when I found it on sale AND in my size. Spring is always a hard time for me because I just love sweater season, so when it starts to get too warm to wear sweaters I fight pretty hard.
