Comfy Casual

Monday, May 25, 2015







A couple weeks ago I was out shopping with a friend and she mentioned how she was really into the lace shorts trend, but was't sure how she would style them and I made the comment that I really only wore them to the beach. ((And that is such a waste of lace shorts... that I knew I needed to find a way to incorporate them better into my wardrobe... and help others.))

I am not a t-shirt and jeans person, for some reason I just never have been so my version of casual is often times a lot less casual than others, but I am learning-and trying to change! (Like I just bought a boyfriend tee today) For me if I can pop up a simple tank and a cute pair of shorts and sandals... I'm ready to go. Especially in the summer when I just have spent all day in the sun, taken a shower, and am honestly feeling pretty lazy at this point of the day.

((Also how adorable is this living doll top with the bow... anything with bows basically can be defined as my obsession but this tank may take the cake.)) Immediately when thinking of what to pair with the pants that wasn't the average basic like black tee, I thought of how the bow tank could automatically dress it up a bit but still leave it looking casual.

Plus these lace shorts feel like pajamas, and if I can get away with feeling like I am wearing pajamas for most of the day while running errands... well you best believe I will take that chance.

Pajamas all day everyday in the summer and no one will notice... yes please ;)

  9. I never ever wear shorts but I bought a pair of the lace shorts for Florida. I realized... I need some kind of shorts to wear this summer so lace shorts might as well be it! I can't see myself in jean shorts at all! Your outfit is so cute :)

  20. Oh my gosh! I had lace shorts that I only wore once and eventually I ended up donating them because I just wasn't sure how to wear them. I love this bow top though! SO cute.

  21. You look fantastic and I love the top on you. Lace shorts can be tricky, and I totally agree about the cover-up choice! I'm the same way.

    Great post!!
