Happy Monday, my friends,
Back home again–just in time to get ready for our next little jaunt! Today I’m styling a pair of shorts with a shape that is fuller in the legs and has a tie at the waist. This style of shorts is trending now and will continue to through the fall.
I saw these J Crew shorts at Nordstrom–unfortunately NOT expected to be a part of the Anniversary Sale!– and fell in love with the style and color. So I picked them up just before the sale started, and inventory was already getting low.
I really love the tie waist and the floral pattern of the fabric. There are so many colors to tie into, or not at all! I decided to play up the olive with this cute tee–you can see the nice detail in the pleats on the sleeves–so cute! There are even nice pockets hidden in the pleats–love that feature! I don’t know what it is about pockets, but I just seem to love it when I find them in a fashion piece, don’t you?
I can see these shorts styled so many ways! With a white top and jean jacket, with a cold-shoulder blouse with billowy sleeves, or with a sweater–either cardigan or crew–or even a cute sweatshirt! It would look great mixed with a contrasting pattern, too, such as a stripe or simple dot pattern. I really like it with my neutral wedges, but it would look great with flat sandals or even sneakers! Booties would go well for a fall look.
I dressed it up a bit here with a statement necklace and tassel earrings but it really doesn’t need much.
This outfit could be worn to a casual party, a lunch or dinner date, or even shopping. It is always so wonderful to find pieces like this to mix and match and make multiple outfits.
Even in my current chubby state, this shape is flattering. Have you found a pair of shorts like these to add to your wardrobe yet? I think you’ll be glad you did.
Have a wonderful week, my friends. As always, thanks for taking the time out of your day to stop by my post. I hope you will check back in tomorrow. Thanks, too, for LIKING and SHARING my posts. I also appreciate that so many of you are following me on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook
