Two things in this post resonate with me.  If you know me personally or see me on a regular basis, you know I wear these jean shorts almost every day.  I am a walking contradiction of myself.  I think this is is for a couple of reasons; I try to jam as much as possible in any allotment of time, literally running everywhere I go, and I simply don't have the time to consider the way I look.  My Grandmother would not like hearing this, but it is in any case, the truth of the matter.  That said, I do look forward to the opportunity to put my best foot forward on a special occasion (or blog post:), but in the meantime I say goodbye to my faithful shorty blues until the next season.  The second thing I want to share with you is THESE SHOES!  My dear friend, actress and designer, Ann Roth, sent me these shoes.  I planned on sending them back to her, but it is not going to happen.  I simply could not part once I put them on my feet.  I'm so excited, because Ann is sharing the love by offering 20% off her entire shoe and bag collection!  Just enter THEQUEENCITY (all caps) at check out.  Happy Shopping!  Happy Weekend!

Thanks for reading!!

  15. I don't think I'd be able to send those shoes back either--they're gorgeous! I was sad to put my favorite pair of jean shorts away too, but maybe I'll wear them with tights once it gets colder, who knows!

  16. I know that's it's hard to say goodbye to summer and fitting it all in (especially with peanuts ;) is always tricky. I love these shorts on you (maybe you you can wear them with tights for a little quality time this Fall or Winter? I also think these shoes are pretty spectacular. When you offer her promo code before there weren't any available in my size but with 20% off now maybe I'll have to look again hehe
