Early Summer Wardrobe Challenge -Ten Items/Ten Outfits
Day 3 - Shorts and Pattern T-shirt
I am really trying to embrace wearing shorts this year but I have to admit I am still not there yet. Don't get me wrong, I love how cool it feels when I have them on but the whole self confidence thing is still not happening. But I listed shorts and a patterned t-shirt as our combination for Day 3 of the Early Summer Wardrobe Challenge and I'm going for it.
Today I'm styling a pair of grey/green bermuda shorts (same) and my favorite patterned linen t-shirt
(same) both are from Loft and just happen to be on sale right now. Because the shorts are grey, I was tempted to wear my silver jewelry but then I found these cute gold tone leaf earrings (similar) at Walmart for $2.88 and had to snag them. They say hypo allergenic and so far I am not feeling any kind of irritation. I have no delusion that the color will stay true but at that price I had to give them a try.
I am seriously trying to get some sun on my legs but for some reason they have been a bit reluctant to absorb any color and I have never had much luck with the tan in a bottle stuff.
I chose not to wear a necklace because the earrings make such a statement. I added a few bangles to my wrist, and I opted to wear my favorite flat gladiator sandals (similar) (similar) again which makes this outfit even more comfortable and easy.
This is one of those outfits that you just have to accept that you aren't going to look as good in now as you did 20 years ago and that's okay. My legs have a few small veins from banging my thigh on the side of a desk for nearly thirty years and some dimples (not the cute kind) that I wish weren't there but it is what it is and I can try to ignore the imperfections and enjoy the style or I can obsess over them and hide in the house. I'm choosing the former...what about you?
