outfit schmoutift ((printed shorts styled two ways))


One thing I'm loving this summer is a good pair of patterned shorts. They're super comfortable and I'm finding they're more versatile than I initially thought.  I've bought three pairs so far and should probably slow it down or maybe sew some. I'm still scared of rompers, so this has been a perfect solution. I thought I'd show y'all two ways to style them in case you don't want them to be mistaken for pajama shorts ;)

OPTION ONE:
Tie a non-cotton/blouse-like tank or top at the side or let it stay untucked...whatever you fancy. It gives some texture without looking like a t-shirt. Worn here. 


details: shorts, tank, sandals - c/o riffraff ((discount code over on my sidebar!))

OPTION TWO: 
Tuck the bottom layer of a two-layered tank into the shorts and let the top layer flow freely. This gives the illusion of a romper without having to take the entire thing off when you have to pee. This digressed quickly, but I promise - it's cute. See? :)

details: 
tank - francesca's  ((i bought it in black too! love it))
necklace - old anthro. found here and similar here

BONUS OPTION: Chambray top with sleeves rolled up and booties. 
ANOTHER BONUS OPTION: graphic tank, sandals, headband ((shown here)) 

love.

  2. Those shorts are amazing! I'm scared of rompers too, I've been wanting to try one, but I just get to nervous of how they will look on me. I may have to join you in this patterned shorts. I'm also looking at patterned pants :)
