Do you buy birthday gifts for yourself? Looking back, I think I have a habit of justifying all my purchases in the month of May as if they are "birthday presents." This year I did things a little differently, though, and set my sights on one particular gift to myself: these J.Crew shorts. I mean...come on, have you ever seen a more "Nicole" pair of shorts?

This may just end up being my favorite outfit of 2017. It's got floral print, stripes, my color of the year, tassels, and the backpack I can't stop, won't stop wearing. I felt 100% comfortable in this look, despite it being a little on the loud. While I have a tendency towards bold prints, some feel more chic and wearable than others. You may be surprised to find that a pair of floral shorts with a giant bow are versatile, but I've coming up with so many outfits to wear them with! Don't worry, most of them involve striped shirts, so you have that to look forward to.

In case you haven't noticed, tie-waist shorts are a big trend this summer -- almost every retailer has a pair! I linked my favorites below so you can grab a pair of your own.
