SUMMER’S SWINGY SHORTS

IMG_5957

Hi guys! I hope you all had a fab long weekend! Mine was spent in between LA and OC with my mom and sister. Our agenda included lots of yummy food, good convo and fab shopping. I am so grateful to have them both in my life and to get to spend quality time with them!

Today I am talking all things shorts. In the warmer temps, there is nothing better than keeping cool in a fab pair of shorts. I love that this season there are so many varieties of prints and styles. I personally love all the swingy ones, like I am wearing in these pictures, as they are so feminine + flirty.  I just couldn’t resist the fab print and comfy fit of these  by Lovers & Friends.. I paired them with this fun (and affordable) crop top (sadly only available in black now) from Topshop to give the look a super flirty feel.

For accessories, I wanted to make the blue of the shorts pop and to bring some more color to the look, so I went with my essential marine blue Celine crossbody. This thing is beyond fab as the three pouches come apart and can be used separately! And since they are separate, its a fab way to keep your stuff organized. Keeping with the emphasis on blue, I threw on my Schutz heels because are literally the same shade of marine (I love a matchy matchy situation).

Since the neckline of this crop is a deep v, I needed some necklaces to add some personality. I went with my current obsession, this star choker from Brooklyn Grace Jewelry (I bought two for layering purposes). How fun? I also threw on this fun longer spiked gold necklace from Gorjana (who I also adore!) For sunnies, I had to stick with all things blue, so I chose my mirrored Le Specs (well priced at $59).

I am super excited that Summer is upon us! I just hope that our weather here in SoCal starts to shape up (we have had the worst “May gray” that I fear is quickly going to change into “June gloom”) so I can wear shorts like these nonstop. Swingy and printed shorts are such a fab switch up from the ol’ jean shorts (which I love love too but changing it up is always good). Here are some other options that are currently on my wish list:

1. Lovers & Friends 2. Lovers & Friends 3.Splendid 4. Piper 5. Joie

6.Lucca Couture 7. Lush ($44!) 8. WAYF 9. ASTR 10. Band of Gyspies ($48!)

I hope you all have a fab Tuesday and start to this short week! Thanks for reading & happy shopping!
