MAN, I love watching the Olympics. I always get swept up in the drama, sweet victories and spirit of the Games — it’s just too enthralling to skip! Spent most of Saturday parked in front of the TV, completely guilt-free for spending copious amounts of time inside on a beautiful day.

These Mink Pink slasher shorts  are pretty perfect on their own but I’ll be putting my DIY spin on them in the next few days. A trip to the fabric store is on this week’s schedule!

YOU know how mostly everything is better WITH bacon? Metaphorically speaking about style, my bacon would be leopard print and anything with leather sleeves. They just make my outfits THAT much better.

Loving the minimalistic nature of a basic ankle strap, slingback with these Zara shoes. And of course, they now come in RED. Usually steer away from ordering the same style in a different color, but these may become another one of those exceptions to the rule.

Wishing you a great rest of the week!
