Happy Monday! I hope you all had a restful weekend! I wore this outfit last week in the midst of the cali heat! If you ever wondered what I wear to sleep, it’s actually quite similar to this outfit minus the heels, makeup, and oversized vest. Usually i’ll jump into bed with a pair of breezy shorts + a loose tank. These relaxed shorts with a wide elastic waistband + drawstring is possibly one of the most comfortable & breezy pair of non pajama shorts that I own.

A few  things that I can always count on to make me smile  1. A comfy & breezy outfit 2. An amazing work out ( I try to work out 3-5 times a week) 3. My “Radiant Skin” smoothie (the one i’m drinking above!) 4. and QT with the hubs. I’ve been making a conscious effort to  “Shut Off” on the weekends (hence the silence on instagram the past few days), and to spend more time with the hubs & my close friends.  Being the workaholic that I am, I mentally have to check myself from time to time as a reminder of the things that are most important in life- Love, Faith, Family, Friendship & Health!

Have a beautiful day everyone, and dont forget to prioritize the things that are most important to you this week!

You look like a professional model in this post..but thinking about this, you probably already are!


Take care, Alena X

I absolutely hate leopard prints on anything but I absolutely adore this outfit! Love how you are able to tone down the bold-ness of the shorts enough to make it casual but still fierce :)

Chriselle, you nail your outfit posts every time!
And lovely tips – everyone seems to be too caught up with “stuff” that it’s so easy to get side-tracked from their real priorities in life.

    Thank you ! Yes aren’t they just the perfect thing to grab and throw over your outfits during those seasons? =)

I love breezy shorts. I just found two pairs of tribal-print shorts from the 90′s in my mom’s closet and I had a hard time believing that they are from 20 years ago. They look so modern and are perfect for this hot and almost airless weather. :D
