Neutrals and Acid Washed


Hello, hello! I’m in a really good mood right now. Literally, I just feel little bubbles of happiness billowing throughout my body and making my heart smile. Why? Because currently, life is pretty freaking awesome! I said it a couple of times in some previous posts, but the first few weeks of spring were not amazing. But those bad times are behind me, and I have so many good things to appreciate and be grateful for… but the best part of all: I’m fully aware of the good things, and I’m loving it!

I don’t want to share everything right now, but one reason I’m thrilled is because I’ve been spot on with one of my goals: blogging regularly. Not only am I regular with it, I’ve been enjoying it! I enjoy working with my best friend (and photographer), writing posts, having blog visitors, reading comments, checking out other bloggers, and enjoying this virtual community. It’s a blast… and there are many exciting ideas, plans, projects, and good things to come for All the Cute!

Since you’re here, I’ll share the links to my favorite places on social media, and I do hope you’ll connect!:


…So about this post. I adore the cognac sandals I have on. Wearing that lace up style was newer for me, and now I’m obsessed. If you look at my Shoe Lust Board on Pinterest, you’ll see some of the goodies I’ve got my eye on… Then there’s the acid washed denim shorts. Um… wow. I’ve never worn acid washed denim anything, and selecting the shorts was a random whim where my mind thought: why not? Because really… why not?

I pieced this outfit together, taking the striking appearance of the acid washed coloring as my base, and building up with neutral shades from there. I also believe the neutrals can be replaced with brights, like a striking pink or blue. What do you think? Do you see my earrings? I’m giving away 2 pairs to 2 lucky readers, details at the end!

  4. This is such a nice casual outfit :) I like the lace detail on your shorts, and you are right they will be easy to wear with so many colours, not just neutrals :) They do look great with neutrals in this outfit though!
