Retro-Inspired

Shirt, Shorts Sunglasses and Scarf: Urban Outfitters; Clutch: Thrifted @ Lollypop Vintage; Shoes and Earrings: H&M; Ring: Vintage Spoon
Taking the trend of high-wasisted jeans into spring and summer with high-waisted shorts.  I found these at Urban Outfitters and immediately fell in love with their cool vintage feel.  Today's outfit is retro-inspired as I really wanted to channel the 70's.  There is something about that decade that I am drawn to when it comes to style.  To me, it exudes coolness.  So, I paired the shorts with stripes, platform sandals, a vintage crochet clutch, over-sized granny sunglasses and a colorful tangerine scarf.  Needless to say, I'm kind of happy it is shorts season again.  And I'm happy the weekend is only a couple days away so I can feel as free as this outfit.

Love! I've been on the hunt for high waisted shorts for a long time now, but I'm so tall that they always just end up looking like normal shorts-not so high waisted! You look gorgeous as always :)
