Shorts: Vintage via Savers (6.00)
Shoes: Ciao Bella via TjMaxx (30.00)
Belt: J.Crew outlet (old)
Necklace: Dolly & Boy

So even though there is practically a dress code of hiking boots, Carhartts, and flannel in my hometown, I still decided to dress up this weekend. I received this cute top from ModCloth on Thursday and couldn't wait for it to be warm enough out to wear it sans-cardigan. Well, I got my wish on Saturday, it was in the 80's! I paired it with a cute pair of navy high-waisted shorts and a leopard belt. I'm always a little hesitant to wear heels with shorts, but flats make my legs look stumpy, I stopped by TjMaxx and found the perfect pair: there's a platform but they are so easy to walk in!

Those high-waisted shorts are great, and I love the vintage look to this whole outfit. And your hair looks beautiful!

Morgan said...

I agree. Flats with shorts can be really hit or miss. I guess it just depends on the look you're going for. I think the wedges look great here. It pulls together the dressy-ness of the top. Well done.

You are stunning! I just want you to know that I found your blog 2 days ago (someone linked to it from the Newestwrinkle livejournal community), and by yesterday I had already gone through all of your entries, boo. You should also know that you completely sold me on that clear bubble umbrella and that I'm going to Target tomorrow to buy one. Keep up the great work! <3

Oh yes! I've seen that top on Erin and now you! damn I kind of wish I had it! Oh and I think I just bought the exact same shorts at "Village des Valeurs" aka Savers in Quebec, but mine are khaki! They fit exactly like yours, I can't wait to wear them with some wedges!
And your hair is gorgeous, as always.

That collar and the lace on the top is so cute and girly, I love the pale yellow color with the high waisted navy shorts!

Midwest Mayhem said...

Your top is precious.

Kristina Karenina said...

The blouse is INSANE! The cream lace with the collar is too much. I'd serisly throw on some leather shorts and more lace, but ugh I've got to buy it now hahaha.

Btw: My legs end up looking stumpy as well on flats, I end up just tailoring the shorts a bit at the ends/inseam to add a natural 'curve'/length to legs.

Liz said...

cute lace top.
LOVE the whole outfit.

Chloe, Butterfly Cupcakes said...

Your hair looks wonderful and I really love this outfit. That top is amazing and looks so good with those shorts and belt!

cait harri said...

Angie D said...

Aw :) Those shorts were born for you!

I think I need to take a trip to T.J. Maxx...I've been looking for a pair like that!

We also had lovely weather, and we took our boat for a ride on the lake :)

La Chapelière said...

Aah....leopard and lace! Who would've known?

briannelee said...

I love the blouse!!!

chicfaced said...

your hair looks amazingggg (but what else is new?) I like that you paired a vintage-y, uber feminine top with the more rugged shorts...gives it a bit of edge.

Kate said...

I love the combination of the lacey girlie top with the leopard belt!

Your hair looks especially darling in these photos.

I totally own that blouse too. You don't think it would go with anything - but it goes with everything! It looks great on you, too.

Aw :) I like how you can just take a plain pair of high-waisted shorts and dress them up with such an adorable lacy top and make a fab outfit out of it! Thanks for sharing :D
