I know, I know – it’s been a while. I blame the summer in nyc, it’s just too much fun (kind of like this outfit)! When I woke up this morning with a strong urge to wear this pair of shorts. With the soft blush color and pleating detail at the waist, this high-waisted pair is perfect for summertime in the office. While I usually wear a button down with these shorts, I decided to break out of my box and try something different. I paused an extra second when looking at this nautical striped shirt in my closet and had a brilliant idea. The horizontal stripes in the shirt and the horizontal pleats at the waistline of the shorts work synergistic-ally and bring the two pieces together making this not just any ‘ole outfit, but a look. Add the heels and multi-strand necklace and lookout!, this is a phenomenal style. And it has a little French feeling, no?
Stripes are a major trend for summer, match yours with a piece that you wouldn’t usually think to pair them – chances are you’ll be pleasantly surprised like me.
