Happy Friday! Woohoo, it’s the WEEKEND!!! I don’t know about you guys but I’m so excited for the weekend. I feel like I haven’t seen my husband all week because we have been running different directions; so it will be nice to spend some time with him. We normally see each other pretty often compared to some couples and so I think its good for us to miss each each other some. You know what I mean? No? Okay, maybe that’s just me. Anyway…I digress. We are talking about these shorts today .
I came across these high waisted shorts when I was shopping at ZARA the other day. I thought the color combo was so pretty and I knew there were a few tops already in my closet that I could pair them with. Personally speaking, when I make a wardrobe purchase I have to think about multiple ways to wear the item I’m considering buying, because…BUDGET! Wouldn’t it be nice to go on a shopping spree and the word budget not exist? HA!
When I first picked up the shorts I immediately envisioned what top would look good with them. I looked around the store and didn’t see what I was picturing in my head. (Side note: Y’all, I do this all the time to myself.) Then I remembered…BUDGET. So, I quickly thought of three things I already own that I could wear with them. When you are shopping on a BUDGET like me, I think abiding by the rule of 3 is the way to go. (I’m prettttyyyyy sure I made this up, but it works for me.) Can I wear this item AT LEAST 3 different ways and can I wear it to AT LEAST 3 different occasions/places? For instance with these shorts, I thought of the 3 different ways to style them, then 3 different places I could wear them: casually to run errands, dressed up to go out and they were long enough to wear to church.
I thought a black and white vertical striped shirt would be so cute with the shorts but I couldn’t find one in the store so I just stuck with what I had in my closet.
I also had this blue and white striped scalloped top in my closet that I thought would look cute and casual with it. You can find something similar here and here. I picked up the flat sandals at Target last weekend.
The 3rd way I styled these must have shorts is with this SUPER soft yellow tee I had in my closet. The t-shirt comes in so many colors. Do yourself a favor and get at least one. You will want to wear it DAILY it’s so soft! I paired it with the tan wedges everyone is wearing. They really are comfortable and I’m a baby when it comes to uncomfortable shoes.
It was such a pretty day taking these photos but the sun was bright and HOT! I hope you guys like the outfits. You really could wear these shorts so many ways!
I hope you all have a fun and relaxing weekend!!!
Disclaimer: The shorts are not lined so they are a bit see through. I plan to have my seamstress line mine, but you could wear nude undies with them and be okay.
