As much as I want fall to be here, it most definitely is still summer! Shorts are almost never featured on my blog during summer because I have the hardest time finding a pair that fits me, looks nice and are still comfortable. But behold! I have found a pair that fits and they’re comfortable….and I think they look nice! (That brings my current shorts collection to 2 pairs!)
I picked these up in the most recent ModCloth sale, and they have been getting a lot of use lately! They’re true to size, and I like how well these shorts and sandals match too. These sandals are only available in a mustard color now, but I found a similar pair I linked to above. The sizing was kind of wonky with these sandals and I actually sized up a half size, but they’re super comfortable!
The day had started out cool enough that I thought I could get away with wearing a cropped cardigan and my little scarf. I liked that the cardigan showed off the buttons on these shorts. I wasn’t in the mood to show my belly button off, though. So, I put a cami underneath the cardigan and tucked it in. I really liked the way this outfit looked, but by about lunch time the temps were soaring, and I had to change.
So, the photos below are what I wore for the rest of the day, haha. I actually preferred this outfit more. The top is more comfortable, but it doesn’t show off the buttons on these shorts like I wanted.
