♫: JUMANJI– Azealia Banks
One of my favorite places to get good deals on clothing is at Amazon.com. While I do not care much for the mega-retailer itself (I always strive to support smaller, locally-owned businesses when I can), and their website is one of the worst one out there as far as organizing a large pile of crap into something both easy to search and easy to shop, I think that is just it: their big pile of crap is not easy to search nor easy to shop, and so things tend to often go on clearance with plenty of sizes left.
I grabbed the coral Trina Turk shorts that I am wearing in my outfit below during such an occasion. I can’t exactly remember what I was searching for when I happened upon them (…1,500 live ladybugs? Ninja grappling hook!); but they were 40% off and I had a 20% off coupon (get your own here) burning a hole in my e-mail inbox as well.
I adore these shorts. Like most people, I usually associate tweed with being a fall/winter fabric due to its overall thickness, but these shorts are surprisingly soft and comfortable to wear even in warmer temps. They have a slightly higher-rise, which makes them great for pairing with blouses, and the 4-1/2″ inseam means they are longer but without being camp-counselor-ishly so.
