Dressed Up Shorts

Despite the fact that I live in Hawaii, I’ve never been a shorts girl. I absolutely love wearing jeans and dresses, so shorts were never my go to bottom. I’ve sported them on rare occasions such as a trip to the beach (incredibly rare) or to band practice but other than that, I never reach for them.

Recently I’ve fancied a pair of cute flowy shorts to go with T-shirts or camisoles. I found an adorable pair of Joie shorts and the one pictured above was an incredible bargain from Forever21. Shorts are just as versatile as jeans and for the summer time, they look really cute. I wanted to see how I could dress up the pair above for a casual work day or for a night out. I paired them with a loose chiffon cami and my go to black heels as a grown up take on the basic short.
