Splash into Summer Shopping Event

Last night I had the pleasure to attend the Splash into Summer Shopping Event at Lou Lou in Old town Alexandria! The store has so many beautiful & unique pieces, but the best part of the evening was the gracious host Kate Julian from "Then, Life Gave Me Lemons". She's seriously one of the funniest people I know & when I need  some serious distracting her blog is my go-to. Ok, enough about my love of Kate (awkward) lets get to the pictures!! 
Yayy for fun neon window displays :)
Sipped on Honest Tea
Snacked on the Cash Money Roll (Crab+Jalapenos=Amaaaaazing)  from Flying Fish
more delicious sushi .. I seriously ate like 40 pieces 
I loooooved these recycled clutches, my favorite was the one that looks like a letter
Natalie's Sam Edelman leopard heels (My favorite shoes of the night!!)
Meaghan won for best hair last night with her effortlessly chic do :)
I honestly chased these girls down before they left the store just to grab a picture of them lol
I loved the <3 tights with the pop of red from the purse & the denim vest + summery dress combo, their unique styles complimented each other perfectly.
Yes, I finally wore the floral shorts that I wouldn't shut up about :) These are the shorts that I scored at the thrift store last Friday. Click here to see what else I got thrifting!
Heels-NINE WEST, Shorts-THRIFTED, Tank-F21, Bandeau-VS, Necklace-CHARMING CHARLIES

I really enjoyed my outfit it was really comfortable & cool enough for the high temperatures. I'm still debating on whether or not I should permanently cuff these shorts or leave them as they are, any opinions?!
To see more photos from last night check Kate's blog out here.
