Outfit Post: Silk and Slouchy

May 30, 2013

My obsession with shorts continues (see the evidence here and here).

As always, when I am on the fence about a trend, I turn to Forever 21. It’s an easy way to give it a try without committing to a big price tag. I found these and I figured, why not. If nothing else, they can always segue into lounge wear. I love the print on these and they are seriously comfortable – guaranteed not to get all sticky and stuck on a hot summer day (sorry if that was a TMI).

And if you follow me on Instagram, you may notice that two of my 6 pm (aka the Zappos outlet) finds made their way in here – the yellow Supergas and the find of the day, this Rebecca Minkoff MAC (still amazing even if the strap was missing).

Oh and, no that’s not a fold line down the middle of the shirt – it has a seam there. I know, it had me fooled too.

Faux Leather T-Shirt: Forever 21 (can’t find exact but this and this are very similar); Silk Printed Shorts: Forever 21 (can’t find them online but I dig these); Yellow Sneakers: Superga from the 6PM outlet (these aren’t available but here’s more in other colors/styles on sale); Bag: Rebecca Minkoff from 6PM (Check out their selection of RM bags and other goodies here)

    Love those shorts! Have you shopped the BR Milly Collection yet? I picked up the elephant print and feather print shorts – they are seriously THE most comfortable and flattering shorts ever, worth the price IMO.

      Just went! Loved the shorts but since I’ve been on a shorts spree of late, I passed on them. I snagged a skirt, a sweater and a tee.
      it was all really cute though – hard to pick!

    These shorts are adorable! Can’t believe they are from Forever21.

  5. […] think the same thing can be said about this outfit. You probably remember these shorts from this more casual look. Here I’m dressing them up a little. My philosophy – add a blazer and anything’s […]
