Well I finally got myself all dressed up and replicated the look! I had found this skirt at JCrew about a month ago on clearance, and when I saw it I knew it had to be mine. One thing you'll discover about me is that I am a stripe fanatic, I would pretty much wear them every day if I could (and I usually do). But instead of wearing them on top, they're now on the bottom.
I just got these short yesterday in the mail from Loft. First, can I just say how much I LOVE IT when stores are consistent in their sizing so that if I get the itch to shop online I KNOW the items will fit? Well, I LOVE IT. I bought these three items during an online promotion, and with some added discounts I had they came out to $11.25 each, down from $40, $40 and $50. That, my friends, is bargain shopping right there. And when they arrived I was smitten. The white shorts are like jean cutoffs, rolled at the hem and fit snugly. The blue pair are a cotton twill and such a fun color (a little more peacocky in real life... is that word?) and the ikat pink pair are a cotton/linen. I've really been in to bold colors on the bottom lately, and I've never owned white pants, so these white ones are a little step in that direction. Hopefully it will stop raining here soon so they can get some use!

When summer hits, not only do we get waves of heat, but also waves of color! I always feel my most bold in the summertime, wearing bright colors and patterns I wouldn't wear any other time of the year. But being a girl who loves the classics, this outfit gives you a bit of flare while still staying classic and a little girlie. JCrew is my all-time favorite store (though my bank account isn't a fan...) and even though I can't always afford their pieces, its a great source of inspiration for when I go shopping. Check back later this week to see how I did my own version of this outfit :)
