I'm All About Patterned Shorts

It's no secret on this blog that I am a lover of printed shorts - more specifically striped ones. They're pretty much my favorite part of summer & I just never seem to resist buying another pair. I just love to wear them with basic tees & tanks, and since it was FINALLY gorgeous here all weekend, that's exactly what I did!

I wore these shorts from J.Crew for our Mother's Day Picnic! I feel like the print & fabric dresses them up a bit, while my basic black tee & flip flops kept it casual. I got these back in March before my trip to Florida, but I just can't say enough about J.Crew's shorts in general. They have a ton of lengths to choose from & last forever!

For the home tour I went to on Saturday, I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking. But I also knew that it was a classy event. So I decided to go classic prepster with my yellow striped shorts, open knit sweater, and Sperry's. I was so comfy & blended right in. I think I'll be investing in a white Oxford shirt to wear with these though, then I'll really be prepping it up! 

Linking Up with Laura today! 


  1. Ah I need those Gap shorts! I just bought two pairs of patterned shorts from JCrew. One is Madras print and the other is red and white striped.
