KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend and welcome back to KCL Friday Finds! I can't believe it's back-to-school time already. Our kiddos are heading back to school this Monday, and my husband and I are ready to get on the Fall routine for sure. Soon after that, it'll be cooler weather (hopefully), more cozy nights at home, and all of the fun holidays that come with the approaching seasons.

In preparation for the Fall, I've been booking lots of product reviews and planning out the upcoming seasonal content, and I couldn't be more excited! In the coming weeks you'll see more in Fall Fashion, Fall Beauty, as well as Fall Decor. For this Friday Finds, take a little time to spoil yourself, because there are several must-have natural beauty products and some boho-chic jewelry that will transition perfectly from Summer to Autumn.

Organic beauty brand BaeBlu (pictured above) was born to revolutionize a shift in the industry. I've personally noticed this shift, as people are wanting more…

Last year it was all about solid-colored denim. For 2013, patterned shorts top the list of summer trends in shorts. Classic prints like floral and polka-dot are still widely available, but Aztec patterns in particular are very trendy this summer. I really love these Ikat-print shorts. Designer brands like Burberry and Lilly Pulitzer have well-tailored patterned shorts . However, more affordable stores like Old Navy, Kohl's,  and Target have a nice selection of women's patterned shorts under $20.

There are so many ways to wear the tailored patterned shorts. These semi-dressy cuffed shorts look great casual, but you can also dress them up with a blouse and even a blazer. Here are three ways to wear patterned shorts this summer.
