Memories Are Made of This

I'm trying not to wear these chambray shorts to death, but I just can't help myself! They are just so comfy and cute and basically go with everything! For instance, a floral blouse and striped espadrilles.

 This was the perfect outfit for a Memorial Day cookout. I haven't worn this shirt in ages, so it was fun to drag it out, dust it off, and style it up! The nice light weight cotton was perfect for a hot day. Btw, where did Spring go? Is it lost? Should we get a search party together? : (  I'm worried.

There's a great story behind these cute bicycle earings:

Crafted in Kisumu, Kenya, and finished by the Teenage Mothers Association of Kenya. TEMAK is "the last house towards the Obunga slums," the most destitute area of Kisumu. TEMAK was organized to provide job training. As a community center, the organization also provides the villagers an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues. Many of TEMAK's young women participate in making crafts, earning income to support themselves and their families. TEMAK has also become a craft center for the professional artisans and craftspeople in the town of Kisumu; providing local and international sales outlets that create a sustainable income for many in the community.

Kinda neat! And they make some super cute jewelry!

Blouse: H&M.
Shorts: Old Navy.
Espadrilles: Old Navy.
Bracelet: Trip to Paris.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day yesterday!
