Do you ever find yourself flipping through your favorite fashion mag and falling instantly in love with an item only to look at the price and scream "that's my monthly freakin mortgage, who can afford that". It happens time and time again....beautiful clothes are...well....expensive. BUT when I happen to find a brand that makes beautiful, well made, affordable clothes....I jump on them like white on rice (sometimes my southernness just has to come out :) ). These fantastic grid print shorts are from Sylvia & Luka and if you haven't checked them out yet then stop what you are doing and visit their site!!! PS I can't wait to show these shorts again once it gets a little warmer, the pleating detail on the sides is just perfection. Happy Wednesday skrillas :)

  7. Geeze louize. you have taken off girl. Your styling is perfection, and you're really pushing the boundaries of fashion. COmbining prints and patterns in new unexpected ways, messing with unique cuts, and just working it in general.

    I see why everyone loves you so much. It's really a joy to come here every day and see what you've got in store.
    Hope to see you on the front pages of Vogue soon.

  35. ohhhh my god how i love love love love this outfit! i'm obsessed with those grid shorts, and how you paired it with another black and white pattern was genius. i usually made the mistake of combining *too* many colors and need to remember patterns in similar colors look even more amazing. I checked out the site and there are just so many temptations!

  38. Best outfit ever!! I'm such a sucker for black and white, those shorts really are perfection. I'm off to check them out, and while I'm at it, I need to scoop me up a pair of those shoemint shoes! Who knew whites shoes could work so well in winter.
