bermuda shorts. white tunic top. military/utility vest. wedges. brown crossbody bag.

Class your shorts look up with chambray bermuda shorts, a white button up, and some wedges. Short, shorts are flattering on so few of us girls, and I think there is a time and place for (barley covers the cheeks) cut offs...which usually involves large bodies of water and an umbrella sticking out of a glass.  Target is one of my favorite places to pick up classier type shorts, and I love how they clearly mark how long the inseam is. I prefer at least four inches of fabric covering my assets. Target has been making this version of short for the last few years. I have them in several colors and in different lengths.  Linking similar items to the pieces in my outfit.

My favorite shorts from 3" inseam to 9", which is what I have on. 

vest options in varying price points.

casual spring outfit: green sweater jacket. skinny scarf. chambray shirt. straight leg jeans. flats.

Love this look for a casual day, yet still polished enough to go to a meeting, church, a casual date. Change out the flats for some pumps and you are ready for something a little formal...well, at least in the uber casual area I live! I pulled the skinny scarf off a shirt I have had for years. Check your closet, you probably have something that will work for this trend as well!

spring gingham outfit: sweater dress. gingham shirt. sneakers. shirt tied around waist.

Fitted knit dresses can be tricky in that they tend to accentuate the parts we would rather not...like our bums and tummies. A dark color can help hide lumps and bumps, and thicker material in a darker color is really a winning choice when selecting this type of dress. I really like this sweater dress for those reasons, and that a simple dress can be dressed up or down. A blue gingham shirt around the waist adds color and a spring feel, and as an added bonus it gives definition to the waist and covers the bum nicely! 

outfit details:
sweater dress and gingham shirt - Old Navy

fringe kimono denim on denim outfit. ripped skinny jeans. flats. jean jacket. fringe kimono.

I have been on the hunt for cut off shorts with some lace detail...the kind that cover your bum and leave a little bit to the imagination! So whilst grocery shopping at Walmart, I decided to check out the shorts selection. Total bust, however, I did come across this amazing fringe kimono for only $12.88!!!! I have dreams of wearing it over a bathing suit on a beach sometime soon and over a tank on cool summer nights.  Until that magical day happens, I am loving layering it over a denim jacket. Such a fantastic way to achieve a layered look as the weather warms. This kimono also comes in black/cream combo and multi print. They are much cuter in person than online.

<outfit details>
fringe kimono  - Walmart
jean jacket - Walmart
jean jacket - Old Navy - Mine is from several seasons ago, but this one looks identical.
ripped skinny jeans - Walmart - Mine are Old Navy, last year.
distressed skinny jeans - Old Navy - Another option.
grey boyfriend tee - Old Navy - My tee is vintage. Love this boyfriend style t-shirt that comes in petite, regular, and tall!
mint fringe sandals - Old Navy - These are so cute!
mint flats - Walmart- Another option.

Also, while at Walmart I saw this fringe vest cardigan that was adorable.

I love this look anytime a year, but especially for spring! A blazer paired with jeans is such a classic and sophisticated style even with an oversized t-shirt. So comfy! The skinny scarf trend is great for moms with little ones to accessorize an outfit without the worry of little hands breaking a necklace and something you can rock year round! I picked up my blush blazer for $10 recently at a Banana Republic Outlet. I literally did a happy dance! Good thing my husband was at another store at the time...
