Outfit: Stripes with a Pop of Color


shirt (similar) // shorts // clutch // shoes // sunnies // bracelet (similar)

Even though this totally is not an outfit I would normally think to wear, I kind of love it! Since jean shorts are a little casual for me, a navy and white striped tee perfectly dresses it up while still keeping it fun and fresh. I paired it with my new clutch from Urban Outfitters (the fact that I found something there I love was quite shocking to say the least) for a pop of color and my metallic Sperrys to give it a nautical edge. And of course, nothing says nautical like my favorite rope bracelet by the Ropes Maine! This is definitely a new go-to outfit for those lazy summer days and I can't wait to find more ways to dress up a pair of jean shorts. Today's post is actually a link up with Scarlett from The Trendy Chick so be sure to check out her blog for lots of other outfits with fun patterns! 

Do you have any other fun ways to dress up denim shorts?
