Daily Threads: A Few of My Favorite Things

   
{tee and cardigan: target, similar shorts, similar boots, necklacesunglasses}
 
  

Y'all - this outfit is jammed-packed with things I love. Let me show you:

1. 80's inspired sunglasses (I may or may not have several other pairs)
2. A black and brown combination. 
3. Contrasting colors. 
4. A cardigan.
5. An easy, pulled together casual look. 
6. Shorts and boots.
7. A half-tuck.

I could live in this forever. Even husband spoke up about this look. And when he likes a look, I keep it around. I may have worn this twice in one week - what? Luckily, I have several pairs of shorts, different colored tees, and lots of cardigans. Hope y'all don't mind seeing every possible variation of this look.

Also, don't forget to ENTER this GIVEAWAY!

Love this look!! In my last outfit post I wore black jeans and a coral cardigan and I really liked the coral-black combo. So obviously, I really like your outfit :) xo

Laura said...

I would live in this look, too! It is the perfect "Hello, Spring" look!

Law Mama said...

Seriously, I LOVE this look. I must find some more flattering shorts... I'm still wearing a skinny jeans version of this.

Sam said...

Agreed for all except number one! (I need my glasses to see!) This looks so cute, I'm sad that I won't get to wear something like this for at least another two months, minimum. *sigh*

I'm like the way you are pulling off the look with shorts and boots together. I LOVE my flat cognac boots, it would be nice to keep them around all summer!

When people say "ya'll" I always giggle.

Also, i've never been one to wear boots with shorts and bare legs, but i've seen it on a couple bloggers and thought it looked good. So who knows! maybe you'll see me in it one of these days!
