Short shorts, tall hair

Femmes, I'm short on time & mental energy at the moment while I prepare for my Big Trip, so I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you understand what I mean when I say that sometimes you just need to have really big hair for no reason at all, even when it's a Sunday, and you aren't doing anything more stimulating than walking the dog around the neighborhood with your boyfriend. Sometimes you just need to wear a spontaneous and gratuitous (half) hive with your floral print shorts, and nothing else will do.  


I've been looking for the best way to style these awesome shorts that I scored on sale at a J.Crew Factory store a few weeks back. First I wore them with a sheer, bright yellow t-shirt that I bought on the same spree. But I am also kind of liking them with this (very old) navy tank with a crochet detail at the neck.


Once again, I relied on my trusty Dansko Sam's to work with shorts—and I think they did. I've been doing this a lot lately, and they have managed to complete looks in a wide range of styles and registers, from denim cutoffs, to colored denim, and now print!


Of course, ice cream was involved. Although after sampling the divine soft serve in K.'s hometown this past weekend, I'm not sure a Mister Softee truck will ever be quite the same to my newly refined palate.


shorts: J.Crew Factory (available here)
shirt: very, very, very old—likely from Kohl's c. 2006!
purse: vintage (estate sale)
shoes: Dansko Sam
lipcolor: Wet N Wild "Don't Blink Pink"

Okay—now on to the edits of my conference paper that Meg just sent me!

xoxo,
melina
