Welcome back, friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful fourth of July, and that you’re able to grab a few extra cups of coffee this morning to get back on track. I know I need as much as I can get! Before we dive in to today’s post, I wanted to remind you of two recent blog posts you may have missed… this gingham peplum blouse, and a couple of Target swimsuits you need now!

Now onto the highlight of today’s post and one of my very favorite color combinations, that age-old classic blush and white! When temperatures start to rise during these dog days of summer, I find myself returning to this color scheme again and again. There’s something so light and refreshing about the pairing that seems to take the edge off of stifling days!

While these shorts in particular are selling out quite quickly, it’s not hard to find fabulous blush basics for your summer wardrobe. I’ve included a few other similar shorties in the links above, as well as the image product scroller below. And if you’re color crushing just as much as I am, you’ll find a whole slew of other blush beauties (in all sorts of silhouettes) here!

Love from Texas,
