As summer comes to a close (at least for me) I’ve been really cherishing my shorts! For some reason, it’s almost like I’m all about buying shorts because I want to get in as much “wear time” as I can before I can’t wear them anymore. This means that I’ve been trying to grab up all the fun cuts and colors that I can find–like these red scalloped ones!
For this outfit, I wanted to go with a sort of preppy type of vibe and pair a classic blue shirt adorned with pearls (I guess not so classic when you add bell sleeves and pearls on the front) with cute and fun shorts with a twist. The scalloped shorts style has had my heart all summer, I’ve just been waiting for the perfect pair! I’m so happy I finally found them while browsing Marshalls last week in the clearance section of all places!
These shorts were $10 and I felt like I died and went to heaven when I discovered that not only were they long enough (hate those booty shorts styles!) but they also were pull-on! Maybe that makes me a bit of a grandma but whatever–not having to deal with the annoying button clasp when I sit down is enough for me to die a happy woman!
I felt equally as lucky when I found this adorable top at Zara this past weekend. Okay, so it wasn’t on sale, but it was only $35 so I didn’t care. I can wear it to work and half the time that’s my only justification when I buy clothing (okay, more than half the time!).
I wanted to add a little more fun, so I sported my new ALDO palm leaf printed bag I got from Amazon a couple of weeks ago (linked here) and some fun new tassel earrings I scored in my Rocksbox this month.
Hope you all had an awesome start to your week! I hit the ground running yesterday at my new job (first day) and although I feel very busy, I’m loving every minute!
