Club Monaco Giraffe Printed Shorts | The Style Scribe

How beautiful is the backdrop in these photos?! I love taking trips out to the Four Seasons at Aviara, located in Carlsbad, California. As I mentioned last week, I’ve been going out there every year since my early high school years – I kind of can’t believe how long it’s been! The weather couldn’t be better (sunny, mid-70’s) and with La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe just mere minutes away, there’s so much to do (and eat!). While we visit a few favorite haunts every year (my favorite is The Market – incredible), this year we were determined to step outside of the box and try some new places. A couple of those included The Marine Room (fancy dining looking out on the beach) and Rancho Valencia (gorgeous grounds + the best service I’ve ever experienced).

I wore this outfit to dinner at Jake’s in Del Mar, another spot we always hit while we’re in town. I found these shorts on major sale at Club Monaco before I left Dallas for Carlsbad, and knew they’d fit right into my vacation wardrobe. I wish more designers/brands would include giraffe prints into they’re collections – they’re so much fun and a little more unique + unexpected than a leopard print, don’t you think? However I might change my tune for this fab skirt and these slick jeans… I also love a good tiger print, which you don’t see very often either. These shorts are pleated to perfection, allowing the silk to kind of billow, if you will. I just threw on my current favorite tank and it was an easy day-to-night look! Some other adorable prints I’m eyeing for fall include this malachite print dress, this zebra coat (under $150!!) and this super chic Tory Burch sheath. What are your favorite prints?
