I hope your week is going well!  Is it sad that I'm ready for Friday even though it is only Wednesday?  Something about late nights and early morning meeting don't work well for me....

Even though it is summer and we all know how much I love color, there is something so easy and chic about black and white.  I love a great pair of dressy shorts, especially since we know how hot it gets here in Atlanta...  These shorts from Zara are perfect they are flattering, but not too tight.  A white top with interesting cutouts at the top and great accessories elevate this look from basic.  This is perfect outfit for dinner with friends/date night.  For a more casual look, I would switch out the blazer for a jean jacket (or no jacket depending on the night!).

Are you guys fans of dressy shorts?
