wear it with: bow shorts

03 May 2011
it's time for this week's "wear it with" series! i've styled bow-embellished shorts, which are perfect for spring and a bit dressier and more polished than the traditional short. i stuck with flats this week, but pair these with platforms for a more glam look.


which is more your style: option 1 or 2?

Love both looks! I really love them paired with the striped tank! I have such a weakness for stripes

Option 1 for sure! I love a good, well-cut tee, and that clutch! So pretty and polished.

Johanna said...

Tough call but option 2. Such good taste my dear!

The bow shorts are so cute- love both looks but would probably pick #1 for myself- both gorgeous!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Absolutely lovely, but I think I would have to go with some more elevation on the shoes with my short lil' legs! I'm *LOVING* the sandals in that second look, though...I absolutely adore this series! (c:

Option 1 is my style definitely. The bow detail on the shorts and the clutch and there you have a great outfit, very appropriate for week days too, not only for the weekend. Hope you have a wonderful week, Ashley! xoxo Ada

I saw a pair of shorts like these on Modcloth, and I wasn't sure how to wear them. Thanks for the tips! I'm always looking for a fun shorts alternative.

Mo Pie, Please said...

I think my style is much more of the outfit on the right. I love adding color and that purse definitely belongs in my wardrobe. Although I DO like everything about the one on the left, too. Maybe I'm just afraid of it because it's the pale color of my skin, hah! Great choices though!
