urban outfitters tank (there’s still one on ebay), forever 21 shorts, zara box clutch, sam edelman yelena sandals

When I saw this pair of shorts at Forever 21 it reminded me of this top that’s been hiding in the back of my closet, though I didn’t initially think I’d pair the two together.  When I got home and found that they were a near-perfect match, I couldn’t resist the urge to construct a romper… or to break out my neon box clutch and these sporty (not sure what makes them sporty, but they feel sporty to me) Sam Edelman sandals.

Happy Friday!!!

A smaller dose of neon today against some nice neutral shades.  As much as I hate buying shorts (see this post), I fell in love with these awesome neon trim ones from Laugh Cry Repeat.  They have a nice high-ish waist with a good amount of room in the legs (I went up a size to ensure a looser fit), a formula that proves most flattering for bigger thighs.  Honestly, I don’t know why all shorts aren’t made like these, it gets so frustrating shopping for shorts when all that are offered are low-cut, booty-cheek-displaying hotpants that look good on approximately .0082% of the population.  Yes?

Happy No Pants Tuesday!

I’m wearing my Sam Edelman Yelenas today, complete with matching chrome nails. They’re quite similar to this pair of Chloes, but without the whopping $640 price tag – I would even say I like the Edelmans better.

I don’t mind buying knockoffs, but I know some people do.  It’s not that I don’t want or occasionally buy nice things, I just don’t always see the need to when I can get something so similar for the fraction of the price.  So while I’m painting the bottoms of all my shoes red (just kidding), I’m saving for the very special pieces, the ones no knockoff can come close to.

What do you guys think?
