I'd meant to get this post up yesterday, but unpacking and getting settled at home again got in the way. That's life! We had a wonderful and relaxing time in Arizona over the past week. We were able to get a straight flight from Milwaukee to Phoenix both ways which made the travel much easier. Many times when we fly, we leave from O'Hare airport in Chicago because it has more flights and can be cheaper, but I'm so glad it worked out that Milwaukee had better flights this time. A 15 minute drive to and from the airport versus an hour and 15 minutes makes such a difference!

This was the only other outfit photo I managed to get while in Arizona. The weather was beautiful during our stay with temperatures in the 80s and low 90s during the day and much cooler at night. It was so nice to be able to wear some shorts! I just got this pretty yellow blouse last month at ThredUp and thought the sunny color would be perfect with my elephant print shorts. It was so appropriate that the Ageless Style Linkup featured yellow because I agree it's an under worn color! I love it paired with blue and turquoise. I even did a How To Wear Yellow post a while ago! It doesn't have to be a hard color to wear, you just need to make sure you find the right shade of it.

  10. Just love those elephant patterned shorts. The weather looks so nice there! I almost always try to book direct if I can, but sometimes if I'm lazy and don't book way ahead of time I don't have very many good options left.

  20. I love the cute scalloped hem on your top, and the elephant shorts are just darling. Sometimes the commute to and from the airport can be the worst part of the journey! You are lucky you were able to fly from somewhere so close!

  21. Yay for direct flights and spring get aways to warmer climes. I love Phoenix. We can easily drive there from home so wind up going out that way several times a year. Mostly for baseball.

    What a darling outfit. I am just beginning to dabble in yellow after years of hearing my mom's voice in my ear saying I looked seasick in yellow and should never wear it. Heading over to check out your post about wearing yellow next.

    Is your hair naturally curly? I love it that way. You have great hair but those curls are so fun and playful. And how 'bout those legs? Wow wee!!

    1. Thanks Leslie! Yes, my hair is naturally curly. I wear it like that a lot more in the summers because I just can't fight the humidity! :)

  22. Yellow indeed is the color of this year's spring, and I love it. Such a lively color, and looks so cute on you with the denim jacket dear. Those elephant shorts are super cute!
