Hello blogging world! I was going to apologize, AGAIN, for being a horrible blogger, but then I thought about it, and really, what’s the point? I have been living life to the fullest lately, and the computer is the last thing I was thinking about. I know all of you understand that. 

In the past couple of weeks my sweet, loving, hilarious, hunk of a boyfriend turned the big 3-0! It was a milestone birthday, and I’m so proud of everything he is - my best friend, love of my life, #1 supporter and the photographer behind this beloved blog. I don’t know what I would be without him, and I love him to bits! Ok enough with the mushy stuff, I’ll move on. :)

I actually had a semi milestone birthday last week as well. I turned 25 on the 23rd of July! To be honest I still feel all of 21 years old, so it is a bit odd to officially be in my mid 20’s – eeeek! I feel like I need to grow up, but I guess being young at heart is always a good thing, right?

Also, this past week our good friend Paul Ku was in town staying at our apartment, visiting from CA for a dealer bike event held in Park City (what are the odds of that?). Anyways, we had a total blast. Drinks were abundant, conversation was on point and laughs were non-stop. It was so nice for someone from our old neck of the woods to come and hang out for a couple of days. It reminds me of how much I miss all of my buddies back in CA. Hopefully, we’ll get more visitors soon (hint, hint)!

Now onto this outfit, it has been hot hot hot here in Utah lately, and I couldn’t resist slipping on my favorite cropped top and super high-waisted shorts, today. The perfect combination to beat the heat! I seriously have an entire dresser drawer filled with jean shorts, and the higher the waist the better. They are always my go-to for relaxed summer days. And what better way to show off these shorts than a billowing cropped top? Yes, I am wearing these shoes again. I actually have a pretty large collection of shoes due to the three years I worked at a shoe store, but I always gravitate to these bad boys. They seriously go with everything and are so comfortable!

If you’ve ever been to Park City, you’ll be familiar with the backdrop of this photo. What you see behind me is the infamous white barn. That sweet American flag is posted for the entire summer, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s basically the unofficial welcome sign to park city, my bike route for the farmer’s market and I couldn’t think of a better symbol to represent the juxtaposition of the historical and the modern in the city I live in.

Wow. This such a daring outfit. I don't think I would ever feel comfortable (or get away with) wearing such a cropped top with short shorts. Nope. No way. But you look so well in this outfit. I love the high-waist of the shorts.

Eda ♥ said...

Oh darling what I would do for a figure like that...you look beautiful as always - great style!
