summer weekends

To be frank, this outfit isn’t all that exciting, but I’ve worn some variation of it at least ten times this summer, so I figured it deserved a post on the blog. I think the reason I love it so much is due to the comfort of the shorts–they’re about a size and a half too big, which leaves plenty of room for delicious meals at restaurants 🙂 The shorts are also a good starting point for choosing different tops; thus far, I’ve also worn them with gray, green, and chambray (see that look here).

This particular summer weekend was spent taking Caleb to the library, enjoying lunch at Zoe’s, browsing through my favorite thrift and consignment stores, and watching a few episodes of Ozark.

How did you spend your weekend?

DSC_2505Although I bought these floral shorts several weeks ago (I mentioned them in my June budget post), I’m just now getting around to wearing them. I actually had assumed that I would have to wait until next spring to wear them, as my belly has grown quite a bit lately. I was pleasantly surprised though when I tried them on–they fit! Even better, I discovered that they’re actually from Gap’s talls section, which gives them a little extra length.

DSC_2493While I love this print, I’m finding that I really don’t have many tops that match the colors in it. The best I could do for this first go-around was a chambray shirt and a peachy/orangey belt. What tops would you wear with these shorts?
