This is going to be a super short post today…mostly because I ran behind on blogging duties due to internet lack of cooperation. So in fear that I will lose internet connection or just get that annoying little spinning circle that hangs on the screen and lets you do nothing, let’s get on with it!

  3. Thank you for hosting Shelbee and I to see you later today on Fancy Friday linkup! Have a great Friday!

  4. Sooo frustrating isn’t it? My laptop broke earlier this week too. I was like a woman with the worst pmt ! I hope you manage to get it sorted. Thank you for hosting x

    • Oh no, Laurie! I hope your laptop is back up and running! I hate when mine seems like it is working but it is so slow that I feel like I am in 1995 working on a dial-up connection when it take 15 minutes to process every time I click on something! It seems to be working okay right now….let’s hope it stays that way.

      Have a wonderful weekend!


  5. Those printed shorts are so cute on you! I love the draping of that top! Thank you for the linkup and have a great weekend!

  6. Love those printed shorts!!

  7. How about when I was working on Wednesday’s post on Tuesday night my computer was a hot mess. It took me hours. I thought it was a Chrome/Shockwave issue, but turns out it was my freakin’ computer again. After much playing around on Wednesday and Thursday deleting, moving files, cleaning up etc. it’s working again. I really need a new computer, but I keep nursing this one along because I dread the pain in the butt of setting up a new one.
    I love your shorts! I haven’t had any luck finding new ones that I love, but I did recently order a pair of chambray floral print shorts that I have high hopes for. I hope your internet issues get sorted out. Have a fabulous weekend!
    PS…Watch out for those suicidal sky rats! Lol!

    • When I started reading your comment, Debbie, I thought you were going to tell me a sea gull had something to do with your computer malfunctioning! Wouldn’t that have been a story?! Hahaha! I also need a new laptop but have been nursing this one along for the same reasons as you (and not wanting to shell out the money for a new one)! I’m glad yours is up and running again as is mine…for now.

      Chambray floral shorts sound lovely. I look forward to seeing how you style them!

      I kind of felt bad that I hit that dang bird, but it seems everyone I told said, “Good. They are disgusting!” Poor disgusting creatures!

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!


  8. Love your shorts Shelbee!! I have a pair sorta like them from Loft that I just got!
    Don’t you just love technology—when it works!!

  20. Shelbee, I love the teal-ish (?) color of your top. I also like the roushing that creates a pretty vertical line, very flattering! The top is perfect with those shorts. Great color combo on you. I like how you did a pop of pink with the belt. Those shoes have some great attitude! Love the outfit!

    • Thanks for stopping by McKenzie! All of these fabulous ladies are where I find inspiration to get dressed when I am floundering.
