Wrightsville Beach + Pom Pom Shorts

May 27, 2014

Hope everyone has recovered from their nice, long weekend.  Gosh, what a difference it makes to have 3 days off versus the regular weekend!  Casey and I decided to make a last minute trip to the beach, which is FOUR HOURS AWAY!!!!  We both grew up within minutes from the ocean and as much as we love the city of Charlotte and can’t say enough amazing things about it, the beach is the one thing it’s missing.  We are surrounded by huge lakes, lake houses, boats and pools, but nothing can really replace the beach in my opinion.  So here are a few snapshots of our very quick trip to Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington, North Carolina.

We were only able to spend two nights and one full day there because I had my friend, Stephanie’s baby shower on Sunday.  Steph is having a girl too and is due in July!

At least 12 people asked where my pom pom shorts were from that I wore on Saturday.  Aren’t they so cute?!!!  They were purchased recently from a small boutique in Parkland, Florida called Jatem, which I do not believe has a website (or at least I couldn’t find it), but here is their Facebook Page.  Below are similar shorts I was able to find online:

Pom Pom Shorts

ASOS: Watermelon, Elephant petite / Elephant regular

Kami Shade: Pastel Floral, Bright Floral (fyi, I have never purchased from this website, but they appear to have some cute things)


Impressions Online Boutique: Beach Bum (never ordered from here either)

Zappos: Rip Curl Brightside


PS- I am loving this new pom pom trend and have been living in a kimono that has them along the edge of it, which will be making an appearance on the blog very soon!
