When I am let loose in stores, I usually start reaching for the colorful tops and easy dresses, maybe another cardigan (or four), or even the shiny jewelry calling my name so sweetly. I tend to ignore the bottoms. Sorry, pants. Sorry, shorts. Sorry, skirts. It's just that the bottom half of outfits seem so much more like staples. I buy one thing in that category and it can last me through hundreds of outfits and lots of years! You know... Until they can't.
I've noticed the error in my ways and have been trying to zoom in on fun trousers and frilly skirts for me to go all grabby-grab-grab. Here are some favorites:
Is your heart racing with desire or what? The best part is I can see all of these pieces being extremely versatile. Both of the shorts and the skirt can be dressed up or down, and both pairs of jeans can go with a huge variety of tops and stylings. Can't you imagine an Equipment-like blouse with all of these? Or a chambray top tucked into the yellow skirt? Mixing prints with those tribal-print shorts? Parisian-chic with the black jeggings and a striped top. Color-blocking with the coral jeans. A preppy blazer with the lace scalloped shorts (by the way, I am still completely obsessed with scalloped edges. So fun.)? The answer is yes. Yes, you can. Snatch these up while you can, ladies!

Also, as I was scrolling through various websites looking for different options, I found these shorts and died a little bit inside. It has summer written all over it! Please, can I have?
