Spring Green

by Jessica Sturdy on June 15, 2012

A few weeks ago I received a bouquet from Skirt PR & H.Bloom. The gorgeous flowers lived for what seemed like weeks and made our living room feel like spring, even though Mother Nature wasn’t on board! The green blooms had me itching to find some threads to match…

When Loft was having their $30 shorts sale, I knew I was coming home with these. From a distance the print looks floral, but up close it looks like a watercolor tribal print. Whatever it is, I love it! My only complaint is how much the shorts stretched out while sitting at brunch. They’re a linen blend so please excuse the creases! ;)

Tee: Trouve (mine is a few years old, but here is the updated version) // Shorts: Loft (recent, check your local store!) // Sandals: Aldo (on sale for $21!) // Ring: Store in Naples, FL (similar) // Watch: Michael Kors (similar) // Spike Bracelet: ASOS // Animal Print Bracelet: Bauble Bar // Chain Link Bracelet: Spike the Punch // Sunglasses: ASOS

I would never have thought to pair black with this print, but I like how chic it looks and it kind of balances it out – nice job! :)

I always have the same trouble with linen. I’ve actually stopped wearing it for the most part. The print/colour of those shorts are gorgeous though.

Obsessed with these shorts…I’ve been eyeing the pink ones of a while.

Happy Friday!

I have these same Ikat shorts from Loft! I went down a size and that helped with them getting less baggy after a day of wear. Also, I paired mine with a lime green short sleeve sweater (also from Loft) and it really made the shorts pop! Just a suggestion. Looks good with black too!

I have been eyeing the same shorts there, but didn’t buy b/c they are linen…they also have some gorgeous all turquoise shorts with button details, did you see those? *swoon*
