Black & Floral

When thinking of florals I don't tend to associate blacks with the feminine print. However, when I came across these fitted high waisted shorts at Express I immediately thought of all the summer looks I could pair with the uncommon summer color. Tonight the honey and I set out for Newport Beach to do some celebrating {I will be able to mention what we are celebrating starting next week -- but don't worry no ring or buns in the oven are part of this one}. Wine was flowing and many cheers were in order. 

The evenings here in So Cal are polar opposite of the ones back East I am use to. No matter what time of year, a light jacket or long sleeves are almost always necessary. Which, I have to admit, totally messes with your summer outfits. Tonights floral shorts paired with a black flowy blouse, and nude heels and purse. No pops of color, no bright lips, I let the patterned shorts do all the talking!
