Brand New

Seattle, American Apparel, denim shorts, chambray, j.crew, street style, spring fashion, blonde

With the help of gift cards and discounts, I was able to get both these items for super cheap! The top is from J. Crew and has the cutest heart pocket! Based on that detail alone, I was completely sold. Plus, chambray was on my wish list for Spring!

The shorts are from American Apparel and are the most flattering shorts I've ever owned. I'm really not a shorts person, but I quite liked the way these ones looked. The high waist is awesome. I'm looking forward to styling them in a classic 50's sort of way.

I am fighting back the urge to talk about the weather. It's the #1 factor in deciding what I wear, but who really wants to read about that?

I learned to sew when I was little, so that helped a lot!

You, my friend, are well on your way to becoming a Style Icon on Chictopia. I can't wait!!!

I have vowed many times never to talk about weather, but it creeps in sometimes. It's so hard not to! Love those shorts, I think a good pair is one of the hardest wardrobe items to find.

GOODNESS! I certainly do.

Those shorts look so amazing on you. Like, wow.

I'm kind of speechless. I also cannot fathom how those are flats, but I will let that slide.

You look so perfect, so timeless, and so- gah. I am editing myself so I don't come across as a total perv. Ya dig?

Now, about the weather...

Hahaha, Zoe, that's the best comment. It made me laugh quite a bit. I think I'm standing on my toes in these photos, which is just as bad as wearing heels.

Thank you, dear!

I love the heart pocket on your shirt, that would have been a huge selling feature for me, too :) This look is so deceptively simple and well put together, you look amazing. You have might just have the best hairstyle I've ever seen. Love it!
