ruffle shorts











I would be lying if I said that choosing to wear booties during July was a good choice, yes they look badass but the humidity was unreal while shooting.  I know everyone’s tired of hearing complaints about how hot it’s been but Mother Nature is mad at the world, this Florida girl has checked out of summer and it totally ready for fall.  The big Nordstrom sale only fueled my fall fire desire, which half of my haul arrived today and I’m in love!

I totally did not even attempt to put makeup on either, it would have just melted off… so ladies & gentleman you’re getting a fresh faced Taylor.  Not that I ever wear tons of makeup but I wear enough that I’m bold enough to take my sunnies off for at least a shot or two…not a chance for this one.

p.s. I have to announce that my hair has finally grown out long enough that I can put my hair in a mini bun without having to have bobby pins! (insert the praise Jesus emoji here).

* all of the pieces I’m wearing I’ve had long enough that they’re no longer available but I’ve linked all similar styles to the same stores I purchased each item from except for the booties.  The booties are the only ones I have linked that are from a different store than I purchased mine from but they’re the most similar pair I’ve found.

    I have heard that you Floridians are having a seriously odd and VERY hot summer. Sounds like it’s pouring rain one second, then boiling hot the next. I do NOT do well with humidity so all of the power to you! xx

    Okay stop it right now with the cuteness. You’re adorable. And those booties are definitely BA and I truly know the struggle with humidity and blog shooting. If it looks good we suck it up right? But I’m in GA and I am so over this heat too!
