OOTD: RED SHORTS // WHITE BLAZER // BLUE TOTE


Today's OOTD is a little more playful than most. I used to have a real issue with pairing short shorts with stilettos (i.e. super skank potential). But, if styled properly, the high/low contrast is perfect for lengthening legs and adding a little oomph to a basic shorts/tee ensemble.

And in retrospect, I didn't even realize the Old Glory color theme I've got going on here. Feel free to steal this look for your 4th of July outing....

I get so many compliments on my Calvin Klein Saffiano Tote. It's definitely one of my smartest buys from Marshall's! I couldn't find an exact link to the blue one like I have, but Lord and Taylor has the white and yellow version on sale for $171 (about $50 more than what I paid).

What do you think about today's look? Would you pair sky-high heels and short shorts? Leave a comment for me below!
