Why you Need Floral Shorts
While I don’t typically incorporate shorts into my usual every day wear, I must admit that there are some occasions where they are an absolute necessity. Consider scorching temperatures, beach outings, tropical vacations and summer pool party outings, as some of the main occasions for you to bring out those colourful floral shorts. They can be dressed-up or down as you please to compliment any occasion or to suit your own personal style. Given my personal style, I have opted to dress these orange and beige floral shorts up with a cream/off-white mid-length vest and clear heeled booties. Tailored shorts whether floral or plain have been around for quite some time and can be considered a wardrobe staple. I don’t see them going anywhere, anytime soon, so stock up, as they’re a great seasonal investment.
Background, Style, Fit and Where to Shop
So let me give you a little background on this look. These shorts are a few seasons old, and were purchased at the LOFT for a quick getaway to my island home Jamaica. It was early August when the summer sales were on an amazing downhill slope, so I ended up purchasing 3 pairs of shorts at the time, with prices ranging between $18.99 CAD and $24.99 CAD. I liked the fact that the LOFT’s tailored shorts came in 2 different in-seam lengths: 2 inches and 4 inches, so you can have the option of choosing a length that is most comfortable for you. From their current season, I absolutely love these scalloped hemmed yellow embroidered shorts . The shorts in this post are a 4 inches in-seam, I however do own the 2-inch in-seams as well which are also a comfortable length. I can assure you that your butt cheeks will not be peeking through the hem at all (Lol). Please note that this is not an ad, I just happen to really love the style and fit of the LOFT’s shorts. You can get similar shorts from Asos here, who ship world wide for free depending on your purchase amount.
This mid-length vest was an absolute steal from the Bloomingdales Outlet store in Saw Grass Mills, Florida and only $33.99; a sweet clearance rack discovery. A white/off-white vest is a fresh and beautiful accent to your summer wardrobe. I plan on pairing this vest with a white tank, distressed jeans and some heels for another summer look. Remember multi-functionality is key when adding pieces to your wardrobe. You can get a similar vest, here and here.
Clear Heeled Booties
These clear heeled booties are by Steve Madden and were purchased at Nordstrom, unfortunately I have no cool discount story to share about how I obtained them, but lucky for you, they’re on sale now. Clear sandals and booties are a big trend this season and the beauty of it is that you can wear them with absolutely everything. You can get the Steve Madden booties here which are now on Sale at Nordstrom or purchase the exact replica for a fraction of the price here.
Summer sales with crazy discounts are happening right now so hurry up and stock-up on your summer essentials and favourites, if you haven’t done so already. As with all my blog posts, I’ve shared links for you to check out the various stores where you can shop this look down below.
