I’ve never been a shorts girl. I wish I was one! I’ve just always been so self-conscious about my legs. I guess I shouldn’t say I never wear them. I did wear maternity shorts the other day when I was out running errands. Ha! That’s right, I wore maternity shorts and I haven’t been pregnant for a year now. They’re pretty much the only shorts that really fit me. Or at least I thought they were. That is until I found this adorable floral high waisted pair of shorts for 50% off. Updated to add that I also found them here, in case the original link is out of stock in your size! Same great price!
I almost returned these and got a bigger size because they’re just slightly snug on me as you can kind of tell from these photos. I also have an extremely long torso so it can be hard to find shorts that fit. But these just worked! Plus I’m wishfully thinking that I’m going to lose a couple pounds over the next few months and that these will fit really great then (fingers crossed). I’m normally a size 6 in a dress and these shorts come in those types of sizes. But based on the reviews, I sized up to an 8 and I’m so glad I did because the 6 would’ve been much too small! So definitely size up.
And let’s not overlook the best part. The shorts are 50% off right now! So you can get them for under $50. I just think they’re stunning and had to share because I’m so excited that I was finally able to wear shorts again.
Another piece of this love that I just love is my white linen cami. I love the brown buttons down the front. I feel like it gives it a farmhouse vibe. Or maybe I should say farm-girl vibe. You’ll definitely see me wearing this tank a lot this summer to style a lot of different outfits. I think I told you guys on one of my recent blogs that I was looking for a plain white cami to style a bunch of outfits. And while I’m still looking for one without the buttons, when I saw this one I just thought it was so cute! I think a blouse-like cami is a really great way to make a look feel more dressed up and put together. I think you can easily tuck them into high waisted jeans and throw in some heels and a pair of statement earrings and it looks like a well put together look. Plus they’re great for layering under blazers for work. This one comes in a few different colors. But white is my favorite! I got my normal size, a medium.
Adding an iPhone pic below so you can see the nicer pics and an iPhone pic of the outfit. I feel like it’s even more flattering in the iPhone pic!
I feel like the top and shorts really speak for themselves. So you could totally wear a pair of nude heels with this look. But I thought the fuchsia pumps added a little extra something. And really you could carry any bag. I got this one for $10 when I first signed up for Just Fab. I’ve had it for a while and get so many compliments on it. And the last thing I’m wearing is a pair of white tassel earrings.
I am really loving this outfit in all of these photos because I feel like I look like I did before I had kids. Not only do I feel like it’s very flattering so my body looks more like I did pre-babies, but I just feel like the styling looks more like I used to dress before my kiddos. Don’t get me wrong, I love my mom uniforms! They’re super cozy and comfy and get me through the day. But there’s something about throwing on a killer outfit that just makes you feel good about yourself. I’m glad I have these pictures to capture me feeling that way in this moment.
Anyway, this is one of my favorite styled looks in a while. So I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have any questions about the sizing or anything. And did you read my blog about The Bachelorette yesterday?! If not, check it out!
