soul claiming heat

sweater: J.Crew Factory shorts: thrifted necklaces: Fossil & F21 watch: Fossil shoes: F21
Okay, so I wanted to point something out here. It seems to me that on my blog, I tend to wear A LOT more shorts than other people. You always see these gorgeous layered outfits with leggings and sweaters and scarves that I love to wear in the fall and winter. But lets get serious for a minute, I live in FLORIDA. The daily high temperature is close to the 90's and as soon as you walk outside, you start sweating; no I am not kidding. So while I would love to wear those layered outfits all year long, I simply cannot, unless you want to see my faint from heat exhaustion. I want my clothes choices to be up to par, but for what's functional and practical for where I live. So, if you look through my outfits and envy that I wear shorts a lot, don't kid yourself, I would love to be wearing your layered sweaters and boyfriend jeans in 70 degree  breezy weather.

On another note, I cannot tell you how happy I have been moving back home. Family is something that is SO important to me and I missed everything about being around them. I can't get enough of family gatherings, large and small. Oh and in case you missed the newest addition to the family, Ashlynn Kate, (not claiming her, although I wish I could) here is some daily Sunday cuteness.

I wish I could wear shorts, I live in rainy Ohio where we can't wear shorts until June. I really like those shoes.

You wouldn't normally think those colors (red, yellow, grey) would go together so well, but they do! Very cute and pretty!

Thanks for all the love everyone! This was an outfit that I was unsure about at first, but I definitely grew to love it.
