Chambray & Floral


Happy Friday Eve, friends! I can't believe another week is almost in the books and it's already the end of July! Time needs to slow.down. The Citi Open tennis tournament is here in DC this week, so you can find us there today. Follow along on Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7} for more!








Chambray Shirt: J.Crew Factory | Floral Shorts: J.Crew Factory | Neon Bag: J.Crew, old but still available in camel or black here {similar style/color here} | Earrings: Nordstrom | Monogram Necklace: Onecklace c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Bracelets: David Yurman {cuff here} | Wood Watch: JORD c/o | Lips: Snob, Turkish Delight

Needless to say, summer in DC is never cool, but it seems like the past week or two has been exceptionally hot -- the high for Saturday, Sunday and Monday is forecasted to be 100. What?? And since DC summers never seem to disappoint in the heat category, my search for shorts began a few months ago. Well, after a few months of searching, I finally landed on these cute, colorful floral shorts that are just the right length. Finding shorts of the appropriate length is often very difficult...#tallgirlproblems. But, when I spotted these, I fell in love with not only the length but that pretty print! 

And now, my latest accessory! My love for watches goes back to middle school when I thought it was the coolest accessory to have. I remember wanting this hot pink {go figure!} watch desperately and my mom told me that if I won my tennis match at this big tournament, she would get it for me. Well, the bribery worked and I was the proud owner of my new pink watch. Life was good! With time, I have become a little more practical when it comes to picking out a watch and these wooden watches from JORD might be just my favorite yet. I have admired JORD watches for a few years now -- with so many different faces and shades of wood to pick from, I love how unique these watches are. And for being such a statement piece, I love that it literally goes with everything. This particular time piece features a champagne-colored face with the natural zebrawood finish -- a perfect compliment to my gold bracelets! 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and see you back here on Monday!

P.S. I am so excited to be featured this week as the Spotlight of the Week! You can see the feature here. Thanks so much!
