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 ;)
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.
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? :)
