(Outfit Of The Yesterdays) Peachy-Keen, Minty-Green

 ♫: 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.

Love.

 


 

And another quick outfit, too, on a weird and cloudy day:

Jacket: Emerson Made, old (similar at Express) (similar at UO + take 10% off with code “SPRINGIT”)

Top: Isabel Lu, old (similar at Yoox) (similar by Tory Burch)

Shorts: J Crew Shorts in Lemon Zest (buy them here)

Shoes: Vince Camuto Prue Pumps (buy them here) (similar by Michael Kors)

Necklace: Forever 21, old (similar here) (and an option at Topshop)

Clutch: ASOS (buy it here)

  • Thanks Maria! I’m loving mint too, so you’ll probably be seeing it around here a lot–such a refreshingly pretty color, I think. ❤

  • Hee hee hee, thank you. <3

  • lorena

    I have those shorts, and I love how you paired them with black; especially the leather.  It looks great.  I also love the mint and coral.  Great color combinations!

    I thought those pretty minty bracelets were from J.Crew! Of course they are from F21 instead! If I ever see something similar there, I’m grabbing some. The coral shorts are adorable, and I bet you’ll be wearing them a lot!

    • Right? I do think J Crew had some that were similar, and so when I was hunting around for “similar products” to link to I was bummed to see the J Crew ones were gone. Forever 21 can have great jewelry, but the only problem is that it goes fast! Online, anyway. :)

  • I am weirdly fascinated by the fact that you can buy 1500 live ladybugs.  I almost, almost want to buy them just to see!

    I love that jacket as a finisher to the second outfit — toughens it up just right!

    • Hahahahaha, glad I’m not the only one!  1,500 ladybugs.  That’s…a lot of ladybugs.

    I’m loving these, but that second outfit, you look like sucha badass! ;)

    • Thanks so much, girlie! And yeah, their website…bleh. Not that I’m super knowledgeable with web design, but I’ve been around long enough to think that they could probably do better. It’s like the garage sale of the internets, kinda–never know what gems you might find if you have a few hours to dig around!

  • Curlijuli77

    I love to read your posts – they are so inspiring from the color perspective! I think since I started following you my closet had a color explosion:) yellow shorts are next on my shopping list!

    • Aw, THANK you! I love hearing comments like these, thanks so much!

  • I love both outfits!  My favorite color of the moment is mint and I love how you paired it with the peachy tweed shorts :-)

  • Love those tweed shorts – I have the hardest time finding shorts that aren’t too short because of my height, but these look perfect!  Also adore the black & yellow outfit – one of my fave color combinations lately! :)

    • Thanks so much, Kim! ❤

  • every time i see you in shorts, i start to think i can pull them off!!! for some reason, i always end up looking like all i’m missing is a fanny pack while on safari. lol. you look adorable! love love them on you.
