I have been seeing so many varieties of printed shorts lately. They are really fun for summer to bring a little more interest to your outfit than the ol' denim short. I found this pair at TJ Maxx for under $20. I love that they are close to a denim blue shade, so I knew I could wear them with just about anything. I also love that they have a little bit of a longer inseam than a lot of the daisy duke-esque shorts I've been seeing in stores.
I'd love to pick up another pair of printed shorts this summer- maybe something a little more vibrant! Check out a couple of my picks below and see how I would style them!
How You Can Wear This Look:
Next week's summer staple piece is a little white dress, so be sure not to miss Wednesday's summer lookbook post!
I saw a Julie G's on the 7 Deadly Sins of Fashion tag on YouTube and thought it would be fun to do. Today I'm exposing some of my fashion secrets and shopping tendencies, so keep reading!
1. Gluttony: What do you own in excess of extravagance in your closet?
The thing I have the most of are statement necklaces. I have so many that I'm starting to run out of room to store them. But does that stop me from buying more? Of course not :)
2. Greed: What type of clothing do you always have a desire to buy?
Lately its been casual dresses. They're all I want to wear this summer.
3. Sloth: When you are getting ready to go somewhere but feeling too lazy to find something to wear, what is your go-to outfit?
If I'm in a hurry or feeling lazy, I'll usually grab some form of skinny jeans/t-shirt combo. My shirt could be a Target v-neck, or one of my favorite basic striped tees.
4. Wrath: What makes you angry when shopping?
If I'm shopping, I'm generally a happy camper. A few annoyances would be if I wore uncomfortable shoes, can't find an item in my size, or when I go out looking for something specific and can't find anything that works.
5. Envy: Which celebrity's fashion sense or style do you most envy?
I love Lauren Conrad and Olivia Palermo's styles. If I had to pick another blogger's style it would be Gal Meets Glam or Pink Peonies.
6. Lust: Which store's outside appearance do you find most physically attractive, drawing you in?
Hands down J.Crew! But even though it might draw me in, I still never buy anything there (unless its a shirt that's 30% off the sale price! I bought one during their sale last Monday- coming up on the blog soon!)
7. Pride: Out of all the outfits you have put together, which are you most proud of?
This dress makes me think of my mom because she loves anything that's blue and white print. My siblings and I have bought her many a blue and white bowl, plate, or other home decor item over the years for her as gifts. Always an easy gift idea!
I have been loving wearing dresses this summer because it is getting super hot outside. And even on the days that is doesn't reach 95, the humidity is so high it feels even hotter. This dress is so easy wear with its light cotton fabric. I love that it's sleeveless too!
I had every intention of putting together a 3 Ways to Wear post for today...but then I got sick. I was home most of the week with a yucky cold and cough (otherwise known as an upper respiratory infection), so taking outfit pics wasn't exactly first priority. Instead, I present to you a casual Friday look! This top was such a fun find from Forever 21 (ummm, do I even own clothes from any other store?!?). I love the geometric print, cobalt, and I LOVE peplum, so it was perfect.
I've been on the hunt for silver jewelry lately ever since I bought a pair of silver ankle strap heels. I realized then that basically all the jewelry I own is gold!
I love a casual Friday outfit that can take me from day to night. These heels aren't too tall to still be somewhat "casual" (in my mind, at least!). All I have to do to take my work look to a night out is add a clutch! So easy.
I like to wear more color in the warmer months, but this black sheath dress is my favorite and I was determined to style it for summer. The best way to brighten up black is to add color to it! (kind of a no-brainer...) I chose to add my mint blazer on top to make my black dress more summer appropriate. The leopard pumps also add a fun touch. These heels are seriously so comfy! Another great Forever 21 find, of course. I added another pop of color with the lavender belt to mimic the purple color in my necklace.
Another idea to spice up a black sheath dress for summer? Add a bright button up underneath, and coordinating belt on top! I'm dying to try this with my teal gingham shirt.
