It is that time of year, the heat is on, and although I wear dresses most of the time, I do like to wear shorts here and there. I bought these eyelet chambray shorts from LOFT several years ago, and because of the flat front trouser style they are a bit more “dressed up” than you regular denim short. Last week, I posted an outfit with denim shorts and a red halter, if you missed that post.
I also styled this shorts another way in this post at Childress Vineyards, one of the many in the near the Lake Norman area. Being that the short are denim, you could certainly wear color – any color with them. I chose for this look and my last post to wear a neutral with added accent of a soft light pink in my shoes, bag and earrings.
I’ve always loved espadrilles and these Andre Assous light pink sandals have been worn frequently throughout the summer. Its a lovely shade and something different in an espadrille. I would wear this outfit in the spring and perhaps add a colorful neck scarf or statement necklace. In the summer, I like to keep jewelry at a minimum, and wear some fun statement earrings, keeping the outfit light.
Speaking of light, I took out my Balenciaga City bag in a pale pink for this look. This bag is one of the lightest i own and the leather is luscious. Its one worth investing in, but you can still find great deals on bags at places like Ebay, the Real Real, Bluefly and Poshmark.
Well, first it has been one of those weeks where i check to see if my head is on straight. Have you had one of those weeks lately? I had been battling a bladder infection, dealing with Gastroperesis symptoms ( i write about that in an upcoming post) and because of that forgot my dry needling appt this week!! Well, there is a bright side, we booked our vacation for October. I’ll tell you about that soon, on the blog. I think we all need a vacation once a year for our mental health and sanity! And there was ice cream. Yes, Sunday night we enjoyed some waffle cone and cookie dough ice cream while the puppies had their Bruester’s Doggy treat- a scoop of ice cream with a treat in a cup.
Back to my outfit
What I loved about these shorts is the light chambray material, but its the detail that caught my eye. Love the eyelet design!
