This is my first post surgery outfit post! Yay, I'm back! ;)
I'm not wearing any makeup, and I have to wear hats to keep the sun off my scar, but the family wanted to go to our local carnival so I rallied and threw this look together. My son went on a few rides, won a few games, and we ate great food. After 2 hours of that I went home and napped, followed by a 11 hour night of sleep! I'm getting better, but I'm just not ready for out all days yet! ;)
Okay, lets talk about my outfit. I LOVE these shorts! I feel like such a hypocrite!!
Kristin Hassasn asked me how I felt about printed pants (about 4 months ago) and I told her "not for me!". I thought if you're not a size 0 print would just make your butt look bigger then it is. Now, these are shorts, but I find myself liking some of the looser fitting printed pant styles I'm seeing as well. (sorry Kristin, I had no idea I'd like it! That's why you're a designer and I'm a shopper!)
Okay, back to the shorts. I love the retro feel to them and I decided to pair it with a loose fitting tank with lace detail, simple sandals, cross body bag, and a turquoise ring.

You look adorable for a day at the carnival. Those shorts are so cute and I love the hat too.

Glad you are feeling better!

Thats what I love about fashion...yes there are staples and things that always "work" for you...but it is fun to take chances and wear something you NEVER thought you would or could.
I just did a "shorts" outfit post too...and although NOT printed, I NEVER wear shorts and always dissed them on the blog....realizing that it may have just been the kind of shorts I was trying on that weren't wrking for me...now I LOVE my new gap shorts..so I guess we are both hypocrites girlie.
You look beautiful ..love the hat...and so glad you have recovered so well!

You are looking sooo good!! I'm not yet brave enough to try patterned pants (although I love the look of many)...patterned shorts are the perfect stepping stone! I love the daintyness of your blouse!

Those shorts are so cute!!! I'm normally not for print shorts either but when it's the right print and fit I can't help but love them!
