Hello hello everyone! How’s your week been so far? Mine has been super busy but also super productive. I’ve gotten about 95% of my to-do list accomplished thus far so I’m gonna keep on truckin’! Tuesday I met up with a friend and we had a work session in the morning which was super motivating. Then I ran some errands, which included a pitstop by Nordstrom for the Anniversary Sale. The sale opens to the public tomorrow so I’m putting my post together today for you guys! I didn’t procrastinate on it, things just sell out super quickly so I thought I would make it as recent as possible for ya! 🙂 Drop a comment if there’s anything in particular that you would like to see!
I know I’ve mentioned how much I’m loving stripes this spring and summer. I mean, stripes are classic, so they’re hard not to love. But one striped trend I’m loving a little extra is striped shorts! They’re trendy yet classic and, most styles, are super flattering, ladylike, and classy! I snagged this cute pair a while back and have worn them a few times already! They’re stylish, comfortable, and a good length (no booty shorts for this girl).
I styled these striped shorts a little more simple with a classic white tank the first time I wore them, but I wanted to do something a little special for the bloggity! Since they’re linen (also loving linen a lot), I decided to go full on summer trendy and do a linen on linen look by pairing this cute, olive green, linen, cold shoulder top with it. I loved the olive green with the navy stripes! It was something a little different and the colors compliment each other really well.
I actually feel like this is a look you could take into late summer (ya know, just before you’re officially ready for fall) with darker shoes and a darker bag. But to keep things from feeling like they’re moving too fast, I paired light taupe espadrilles and a light straw bag with the outfit to make sure the outfit stayed on the lighter side.
What about you guys? Do you have a pair of striped shorts? How have you been styling yours?
