Last evening it was finally cool enough for a cardigan. I just bought these wide legged side button shorts from Banana Republic and wanted to try them out. I like that the fabric is a linen-like weave but is actually made from polyester and rayon. They are drapey and don’t wrinkle which is nice. The cut kind of reminds me of tap pants that you might see on a tap dancer in a Bing Crosby movie! The shorts hit right at my actual waist and there are small front tucks that are attractive. With all the sales at the stores, they were a steal at $16.50!
In our backyard we have a very eco-friendly five hole putting green and I thought it would be fun to show it to you with this fun outfit. I paired the shorts with a Loft sleeveless tank that is an interesting combination of navy, white, red, turquoise, and chartreuse. I know it doesn’t sound good as I write these colors, but in real life, I love it! I actually have a chartreuse cotton cardigan from J.Crew outlet (old) that was a perfect match!
I wore Stuart Weitzman nude suede laser cut, block-heeled sandal (old) that are comfy and extend my legline due to matching my skin tone. I added silver pearl stud earrings from Talbots, and a silver multi-stranded necklace from Evereve (old).
Even though I’m not a golfer, Mr. G.Q. (who is an AVID one) got a kick out of taking photos out on his putting green.
So lovely readers, do you think this style of short is flattering? Would you wear it? They are VERY comfortable, so I think they’ll be part of my summer line-up. Stay tuned…
