high waisted shorts

From Bad to Fab :)

So I have quite a funny story for you —

At the end of last winter, I bought an on sale, gorgeous oversized (I bought a medium so it purposely would be too big) sweater from J.Crew. I had only worn it a few times, when having left it on the wash, someone else put it in the dryer for me and it shrunk ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It was at such an awkward size, it looked like an 8 year olds sweater! I saved it anyway, in hopes I could give it a stretch or give it away to a little kid. When pulling out my winter clothes yesterday, I threw it in the wash with a pile of other clothes, and being forgetful Alex, I threw it in the dryer AGAIN. Now, It’s SO small, I thought I could probably pull it off as a crop top!

So therefore, with a few fixes, a sad and wasteful (of money that is) situation turned out not so bad!

Summer Daisies and Stripes

I posted an ‘Outfit of the Day’ post not too long ago wearing these same daisy shorts from LF Clothing with a different white crop top.
The black and white striped crop top is from Banana Republic. It was a handy-down from my mom from when cropped tops were in-style in the 90’s.
I wear this top with so many different shorts and wear these shorts with other different crop tops all the time! They’re two of my favorite pieces I have in my wardrobe and can be worn for any casual summer day ๐Ÿ™‚
