lavender shorts

  [easy-image-collage id=870]

In keeping with the summer theme of wearing colors, I thought I'd add some lavender shorts into the mix. There's no better time to wear something this color. The pastel and silk fabric really is suitable for the hot weather we've been having. I paired it with black, but it would work great with something lighter as well.

I've had my doubts about these Tibi lavender shorts before. I really couldn't figure our what to wear them with.

They're not exactly high waist, but they're not low rise either, so I could never find a belt to wear them with.

They look better with heels, so I chose some nude pumps to give this outfit a more chic look.

I tried tucking the top in, and I can't really decide which I like better. Untucked, the outfit has a more flowy look, but tucked in, the structure of the shorts shows more. They also hang better, and I don't need a belt.

I guess tucked in is better after all :P :P

I matched my jewelry to my lipstick (which is Viva Glam III by MAC). I think the burgundy color works well with the lavender shorts as well. It's an unusual pairing, but after trying it out, I realized it works. I also needed a chance to wear this burgundy bangle ;)

I have a lot of chains with this look, but they are both thin, and go with the loose structure of the outfit. By keeping the rest of the jewelry minimal, it is not too much gold overload, even if it may look it in the photo.
