Ok, I couldn't stay away from printed shorts for too long. I swear the've got some type of hold on me or something. I must say though that these were one of my favorite pairs to style, so I definitely had some fun with this look!
How cute are these little culotte shorts? I was instantly drawn to the color combo & paisley print. They're so summery and chic! The first thing that I thought of pairing them with were the shoes. I got these lace up sandals a few months ago and never wore them. I never really knew how I wanted to style them. Sometimes I get something new and literally don't wear it for months. Do any of you do that too? Once these shorts came in and I tried them on, I just knew that they would be a perfect fit. I really like the cognac with the colors in the print. These would also look great with flats too. I have a pair of gold slip on sandals that I was also tempted to wear with these.
When it came to the top, I didn't want to wear a crop or a blazer like I usually do. I rummaged through my closet for awhile and came across this top that I got a year or two ago. It's simple, but has a really cool imprint that shows up much better in person. I love finding things that I have forgotten about because it always feels brand new again. I just tucked it in and then added on my favorite statement necklace to make it pop out more. I then decided to bring out the orange with this little cross body bag and completed it all with a matching lip. :)
