Attending my cousin’s high school graduation party yesterday brought back a flood of emotions and memories: reminiscing with friends over the memories created over the last four plus years, the panic of trying to squeeze in last-minute adventures before everyone goes their separate ways, and the mix of excitement and fear as you leave all your comforts of home to explore a new unknown future in a new city with new people. They are in the middle of the most exciting time of their lives and I’m seriously so incredibly jealous! I can’t believe it has already been EIGHT YEARS since my high school graduation, man how the time flies! Good luck Barb in all your future endeavors, I can’t wait to see all the wonderful amazing things you will accomplish!
As for the outfit, I am seriously NOT a shorts girl but actually love the simple sophistication of these high-waisted pleated shorts when paired with a classic ruffle tank and a bright pink cardigan (from my summer wish list) for a subtle pop of color! Plus, this outfit was perfectly comfortable, age appropriate, and stylish for a day full of car rides, eating, and lounging outside. Happy Monday everyone! Hope you have an extremely wonderful week!
