I am so so in love with these shorts from Alice and Olivia! They are embroidered shorts that feel a bit velvet, although its not velvet material exactly. I think it fits the spring/summer season so well. It is also super comfortable to wear and it slips on perfectly. Especially with the "less is more" mantra trending, it was refreshing to put together an outfit with bright colors and patterns. But, of course to keep the outfit from being overwhelming, I kept the top simple with a black blouse and a lace detailed cardigan.
I've been really loving pairing a statement piece or bright color with black. I feel like black is always incorporated into my outfits some way, without making the outfit all black. All black outfits are chic and trendy, but I prefer to stick to more than one color if I can. The nude shoes to finish of the outfit goes well. As black and nude are neutral colors, they complement my orange back and colorful shorts well. Plus, nude shoes can elongate your legs, and being 5ft that's something I always need.
