A Walk in the Park

Printed Shorts for Summer

I don't mean to rub things in, but it was another weekend of pure weather perfection here in the Austin area. Things were busy, super busy, over the past few days. I cannot and will not complain. Between brunch with a local blog bud, our last volleyball match for the spring season, birthday party in the sun, sports fundraiser and a Sunday full of fun, the weekend flew by faster than a blink.

More Printed Shorts from River Island



The top and shorts are my first pieces from River Island and I could not be more thrilled with the quality and fit. For me, it is so hard find a pair of shorts that are not only stylish, but a length that are age appropriate; ones I can feel confident wearing. The Boho inspire printed ones I am wearing today did not disappoint. 

I have been ordering styles from UK brands for over a year now. While it may take it little longer to receive items via mail, the wait is well worth it. If you are unsure of the sizing conversion from UK to US, I found a sizing guide that will hopefully make things easier if you decide to order from across the pond.

I am off to push rewind on the weekend and watch the afternoon in the park with my husband, kids and our spotted four-legged friend. Once again, Monday, you came back around too soon.
