I'm so excited to be a part of Kimi's two bloggers, one garment series! When we decided to feature our high-waisted shorts, I knew I wanted to come up with a specifically spring outfit. I have plenty of crop cops and gauzy white blouses I'm planning to share with these shorts this summer, but for this post, I wanted to show how you can rock shorts before the temps really warm up.
As I was putting this outfit together, I walked out into the living room to get my lipstick from my purse, and Dago says, "Oooooh look at my little French sailor girl!" I have to say, I love it when I nail an outfit so well that he can tell exactly what I was going for. I was inspired to try out this scarf-tying technique after seeing it on actual-French girl Daphne from Mode and the City. I couldn't think of a more appropriate place to shoot these photos than an ivy-covered wall. When I commit to a fashion fantasy, I go all the way.
Since this post is supposed to be about my shorts, here are a few other ways I've worn them on the blog: with red stripes, with white eyelet, with Converse and a pizza brooch. Also, this outfit is the official spring version of this outfit from fall 2014.
Do you have a pair of high-waisted shorts yet? I definitely predict that spring/summer 2016 is going to be the time to pick up a pair! Be sure to check out how Kimi styled her favorite pair for more inspiration!
P.S. You know what else looks so cute with high-waisted shorts? Swedish Hasbeens. Run, don't walk: Shopbop is running a 25% off sale with code INTHEFAM and the beloved Hasbeens are included. Go now! (I bought the black Suzanne Sandals, but they just stocked the white Snake Debutante Sandals, so I may need to place another order!)
