What I Wore {Patterned Shorts}

For some people they cave and splurge on purses, jewelry, shoes (guilty!), kitchen ware, or whatever may be your soft spot. For me shorts, shoes, and cardigans are my top three things that get me every time I see some that are calling my name.

 . lace shirt: T.J.Maxx | shorts: Gap | necklace: Old Navy

When I spotted these shorts at Gap (actually my sister did. But I stole the idea to try them on) it was love at first sight. I'm all for printed pants. As long as they steer clear of floral prints. (Floral prints on me (other than a shirt/scarf/dress) is a disaster). Then I tried them on and I was positive these babys would be coming home with me that day. 
The only hesitation I had was "how on earth am I gonna find shirts that flow with these shorts?" and of course money signs were flashing through my head.


Sure enough, the price was a little steep for me. Maybe that's cause I'm Dutch, or because I don't have a steady income, but I was determined. But, with a few coupons in hand it lifted a burden.
And for finding shirt combos? No problem. I question why my little heart was worried. I love to spice up a traditional lace shirt at any chance I get and statement shorts seemed like the perfect opportunity!


With summer here in 2 DAYS (AHHH!!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM. Actually you probably can tell by the capital letters and explanation marks) I'll probably end up wearing these every day for the next 3 months. Just kidding. People might start to wonder about me and send me out on a shopping spree so I can get a variety of shorts.
What things are you daringly adding to your summer wardrobe? Or what do you have to buy at every shopping trip?

On complete side note: Sorry for the lack of posting. We are finishing the year out strong and studying our minds out for exams. Next week our lives should be out of the textbooks and back to normal!

Love the whole outfit! I just bought a pair of mint green shorts with large white polka dots. And I'm struggling with what shirt to wear as well. The lace top is a GREAT idea!

Cute outfit! I have been thinking about stepping out of my comfort zone and getting some patterned shorts soon, but we'll see if I chicken out or not.

You're outfit is awesome and I always love your dressing styles.

Rachel said...

My weakness is most definitely shoes. I'm always attracted to them! I'm not a big shorts wearer, myself, but I really love your lace top. And being half-Dutch, I totally got your joke about being Dutch and cheap. It does tend to be true...
