Festive Fashion 101: Black Orchid Tropical Print Cut-Off Shorts
I stopped by the Black Orchid Denim showroom the other day with the Denim Therapy team to see what’s up for spring. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to see a visual vacation playing out right across the cotton fibers of their new tropical printed cut-off shorts! Check out my full review and more shots of these babies at Denim Therapy’s blog (where you can also click-through and buy a pair).
Are you wearing short-shorts this summer?
I sure am.
TGIF, violets. Go do something awesome with your weekend.
P.S. I read an amazing article today in the NYT that a friend passed along about ending the glorification of “busyness”. I think it’s a trap we are all susceptible to and it’s worth a read this morning (especially if you think you’re too busy to stop and read an article).
“Perhaps the world would soon slide to ruin if everyone behaved as I do. But I would suggest that an ideal human life lies somewhere between my own defiant indolence and the rest of the world’s endless frenetic hustle.

I’ve fallen prey to the I-can’t-I’m-too-busy monster, but it was even worse when I was younger. In college I’d routinely blow off friends on account of earth shattering busyness, then sit up playing bejeweled all night.
Chew on this over the weekend. Ask yourself if you couldn’t cut some superfluous crap from your schedule to see friends without talking about work/projects/how busy you are—or even just be idle outdoors for a while. I’ll do the same.
