THE SKIRT SHORTS


I had promised myself no more shorts or quite frankly no more items below knee length. It’s a matter of practicality, seeing as I don’t have enough places to wear shorts to. However, when I went window shopping which wasn’t the smartest idea since I am trying to shop once a month, I found this awesome pair.
Funny enough I had initially walked away from it since I could not really figure where to wear it to and how to wear it but the price is great ($2) and I love this length for shorts.

What caught my eye about these shorts were the amazing pattern and of course the fact that it looked like a skirt. Styling it was not as hard as I had imagined, I reached for my brown top which has been in my closet for almost two years now. Then I opted for a statement necklace and nude pumps. Now where would I wear this too? Well, my friend is having a birthday party this weekend so I might sport this outfit, though I think with some sheer tights and a white blazer, this look might be appropriate for work.







Shorts: Thrifted // Top: Street Market // Shoes: Forever 21 // Necklace: H&M 

Where would you rock this look to?

  6. Glad you end up purchasing it. The price was also great as well. I think you did a perfect job paring it with the simple top. It just makes the pattern pop.

  33. Beautiful use of earthy tones here. I'm a huge fan of skirt shorts, too. I have no idea why I have such an affinity for them. I guess it could be that I'm a little self-conscious about my thigh area and they provide such great coverage and they're so comfortable to wear. :D I don't like tight shorts and booty shorts. >_< Plus, they're kind of vintagey (not a word, I don't think but whatevs hehe) and I dig that, too. ^_^
