Shorts - Citizens of Humanity, Shirt - YesStyle, Blazer - H&M, Ring - Vanessa Mooney, Bracelet - vintage, Shoes - 80%20

Still not officially warm enough to go without tights when I wear my shorts, but that's okay because these floral cutoffs by Citizens of Humanity give off spring vibes like no other. I wanted to keep things from looking to winter wear by throwing on my pastel pink blazer.

Just realized that I am verging on my one month mark here in Philadelphia. How crazy is that? Too much has happened since last May, and I don't regret a thing. I certainly have grown a lot as a person, and I feel like I have made a true home for myself here. I couldn't be happier anywhere else right now than in my sleepy little city on the east coast. My personal goals have grown enormously, and I see every single second as a second to savor. I find myself laughing every single day because there really is nothing to be sad about. Being away from California is hard sometimes, but the adventure of building up my individuality in a new city that I now see as a home is way more exciting. I just want to keep making the most out of each day, whether I'm working my butt off at work, focusing on special projects that infuse all of my passions,spending time with my friends and being silly, or dreaming up my next trip to someplace new. I've never felt more at ease with my life than right now (well, except when it comes to boys I guess), and that says quite a lot.

Happy Tuesday!

Thanks Cheryl for the pictures!

Gorgeous! I've been eying those Citizens floral shorts for a while... they look great on you.

I hate how the east coast weather keeps changing... I was wearing shorts a few days ago but now I have to layer up.

Happy one year Philadelphia anniversary :) I moved city and country last year so I know what you mean about building up your individuality - it can be daunting when your family/friends foundation is whipped out from beneath you but then it leaves more time/space in your life for new friends! Love this outfit by the way...the floral shorts are so sweet.

Subtle and not overdone, just how I like it. Keeping it simple on the top makes the shorts really stand out. I absolutely love florals. Super feminine and pretty.
