Outfit: Houndstooth Shorts, Black Short Sleeved Sweater, and Yellow Tights

Do you ever try something on at the store, leave it, and find yourself unable to stop thinking about it? That's what happened with me and these shorts. Houndstooth is one of my favorite patterns, along with polka dots and leopard print of course. Anyway, Forever 21 only had an XS and M in these shorts so I tried on both but neither fit. Usually I'd just shrug and say, "oh well." This time I was convinced the elusive size S would indeed fit so I tracked down the shorts online and ordered away. I'm very glad to say I was absolutely correct and they fir comfortably and are super cute.

For their first day out I styled them with some new yellow tights and a thrifted short sleeved sweater. This sweater has an evil habit of shedding its hairs into my eyes. I think it's some sort of angora blend. (This time my eyes stayed hair free though!) These Boston Terrier flats haven't been getting enough love lately but they were perfect with my black, white, and yellow color scheme.

So did you guys have a good weekend? I spent time with my family and Matt so mine was pretty good. I did a little online shopping to get everyone Christmas presents too. Did you pick up anything from the Black Friday sales? I'm not sure if I'm going to take advantage of the Cyber Monday sales going on today. We'll see! I only have a few more gifts to get.

I hope you have a fantastic start to your week!

Houndstooth is one of my favourite prints so I can see why you had to track these down. For some reason that print is always so hard to find here... I can totally relate to what you wrote because it actually happened to me today. I tried on a dress weeks ago but didn't buy it because it was rather expensive but absolutely couldn't get it out of my mind... All week I have been tracking it down in my size and today I found out there was literally one left in the size I wanted and I just got back from picking it up at lunch time... Blog post on it soon I'm sure.
