I love nothing more than shopping for vacation-wear. It's my own little time to play out my traveling fantasies and there's something, oh, let's call is "zen-like" about envisioning what exactly it is I'm going to wear out on the beach. Or exploring a quaint little downtown. Or perhaps noshing on lobster and sipping fruity frozen drinks. You get my point. This past weekend I was able to visit one of my very favorite boutiques Standard Style in Kansas City. Their selection is absolutely jaw-dropping and the one thing I kept picking up were silk shorts! My favorite by far were the floral printed Karina Grimaldi beauties you see below. I love them for so many reasons - although they feel as comfy as my favorite pajama bottoms, they are structured enough where they don't look like it. I also loved the print - those big, pink flowers, didn't feel too "tropical" - like so many florals can - and were just down right pretty. I did not purchase these babies (I have enforced very strict rules for buying resort-wear, the first being that I don't allow myself to purchase anything until 30 days before my trip - unless the item is on sale. Or it's showing there's only one left at Shopbop.) But I will be for sure tracking down a pair in approximately ten days ;)
