Colorful plaid will forever be one of those prints that just makes me crave summer picnics, sunshine, lemonade and afternoon bike rides! Several weeks ago I purchased this plaid tank from Anthropologie, and I’ve found myself wearing it on multiple occasions. It pairs well with white denim shorts, crops and these distressed denim shorts from Shopbop. The plaid tank has a shorter hemline that looks especially flattering when paired with high-waisted garments. Oh, and it’s on SALE for half of it’s original price!
When it comes to denim shorts, I’ve always had a difficult time finding a pair that fit me well. They’re either too short, too distressed, too baggy or ridiculously priced. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Early this Spring I was on a mission to find a pair (or brand) that I loved, and raided every major department store and online retailer in search of the perfect pair(s). It was the one thing my Spring/ Summer wardrobe lacked. Luckily, I found a two pair that I find myself wearing at least once a week.
The shorts I’m wearing in today’s post offer a distressed look without breaking the bank (I struggle with paying high prices for denim that is already destroyed). They run a little large, so I would encourage you size down! I also purchased this pair from Levis. The length is short, but tasteful. They run pretty true to size. If any of you have suggestions on where to purchase shorts, please let me know!
Also, thank you all so much for your sweet comments, text message, emails and well wishes as I embark on this new chapter in my life and in my career. Read more about it, here. I couldn’t do this without your support.
