Daily Threads: Floral Shorts




target tee and cardigan, belk shorts {similar}, UO pumps

Perhaps sandals would have been more fitting with this relaxed, casual look I had going on, but I just couldn't not wear these pumps with those shorts. I had to do it. I don't have a detailed pictures for you, but there is definitely some orange/coral specs in those shorts. I promise. Even if there wasn't, I might have worn these anyway.

I want to give a huge shout-out and thank you to all of you who voted for my look in the Design Your Look Contest over on Makeunder My Life. I came in 2nd place! Which means I got to pick out two pieces of Jess LC jewelry! Ah, I was so excited to hear my name announced and I'm even more excited to share with you all the pieces I picked out! Thank you again SO much for your votes - I couldn't have won without you!

I LOVE those shorts + the pumps. Such a great look... now you've got me wanting a pair of floral shorts. Also? Your legs were made for looks like this. They go on for miles!

I think the pumps with the shorts make the outfit! They give it such a cool "I'm sophisticated, but relaxed" vibe.

Congrats on your contest prize! That is awesome. I I loved your creation and can't wait to see what you picked out.

Also, this may sound weird, but: I have some similar patterned shorts that are less structured and more sleepwear, and this looks like something I wear to bed a lot! (Yes, even the cardigan. I love cardigans so much that I sleep in them sometimes.) But, without the heels, of course. Ha! So, of course I love this and was like "I could sleep in that it looks so comfy!) :)

aaez said...

oo those heels sure do spice up the outfit, such a fun look!!

kileen said...

congrats on coming in second place!! i'm loving those floral shorts on you and the pop of color from the shoes is amazing! definitely a wise pick. :)

Now you're making me wish I had purchased a pair of floral shorts while I was in Arizona, I saw sooo many that I loved, but by that time I was all shopped out! I'm glad that you wore them with those heels, they look fabulous!

I think the pumps are the perfect thing to wear with floral shorts, they just make the look feel so much more intentional.

I can't wait to start getting my shorts out this year!

I absolutely love those flowery shorts! I'd also tell you that your long skinny legs are gorgeous, but that would be weird. Oops, too late. ;-) Those shoes are fabulous too. They give the outfit that "wow" factor!

DAMN Linley, I have that Target t-shirt and I look like a man in it. No amount of cute floral shorts or incredible red pumps could turn it into such an amazing look on me as it does on you. Seriously have your man take you on a walk around town to show you off in this outfit. You look FINE.

Liz said...

I love floral prints. They look great on anything but these shorts have to be one of the best items. I have a playsuit with a very similar patter.

J'adore!

Those shorts are SO cute :D and I love the red pumps with them :D

Bre said...

Congratulations on winning! SO exciting!!!
Though sandals may have been a more relaxed look I love this outfit with your pumps. Besides it a good reason to be more dressed up even if you have no one to go. It's actually so cute that I may have to invest in some floral shorts.
Cheers,
Bre
