short(s) story



j. crew linen shirt, j. crew shorts, hermès twilly


Here are the latest additions to my closet, purchased on my birthday! Colored shorts are definitely a personal favorite, as I have quite a few pairs of them. I swear by J. Crew shorts - they’re short, but not too short, they’re super comfortable and ultra versatile as they can be dressed up or down!
(We clearly can't get enough of J. Crew - hope you all love it as much as we do!)





P.S. We were thrilled to receive the Best Blog Award from
the lovely Elina from Lipstick Stars and Killer Heels
and from the lovely Teresita of Trend-ish!


Upon receiving the award, we must...
Share seven random things about ourselves
We have a maltese, we both speak Italian, we love watching America's Next Top Model marathons, we love cooking and baking, we love eating breakfast foods for dinner, we both play piano, we both love the beach.
   Pass the award to 15 Bloggers
Answer the following questions (Jilly/Sally/both)
Favorite color: White/Pink. Favorite song: "Under Pressure" by David Bowie/Queen (it's an inside joke). Favorite dessert: Ice Cream/Chocolate Mousse Cake. Biggest pet peeve: Chipped nails. When you're upset, you: Listen to music. Your favorite pet: Our doggie B. Black or white: White/Black. Biggest fear: FISH/Spiders. Best feature: My eyes. Everyday attitude: Happy. What is perfection: A day at the beach/Sushi with my family. Guilty pleasure: Reality shows.

A huge thanks again to Elina and Teresita, and congrats girls!

  63. Hi girlies!

    Thank you so much for the award! You are honestly too sweet! I must admit though, I was a little shocked considering the amount of fans you have! :)
    I have said a thank you to you both on my blog!

    You can still get that orange dress! There's more than one, it's a proper store unlike some of the other ones on etsy! *wink wink* We could do a matching post! haha.

    I love these shorts, gorgeous colour! I am so scared to wear shorts, my legs look funny, I can only wear ones that stop at the knee! I like it how you have added that scarf and the colour of that shirt is divine!

  64. I love this outfit! Thanks for giving me ideas on what to wear with colored shorts. I always end up with either black or white on top. Thanks for showing me that wearing colored shorts AND a colored shirt works well! :)
