High School Emily would have laughed out loud at this outfit. Tucked in top, in shorts that aren’t meant to be high waisted? Not a chance. But High School Emily didn’t necessarily have to worry about metabolism slowing down or shorts being too short (not that they were then… but still, teacher status here). And y’all, this has become my favorite outfit for those days when I’m not feeling too confident in the visibility of my stomach. Truth be told, I really think it has to do with the size of the shorts. Which also happens to have colors starting at $8… no lie.
Tank Top // Shorts // Purse // Jack Rogers // Kendra Scott Necklace and Earrings
Does this outfit necessarily elongate me? No. But it does flatter my waist, which I’d vote is worth it to skimp on the added illusion of height. I also think this outfit would be really cute made even more laid back with the addition of a ball cap, I just can’t rock those (#curlyhairproblems).
On another note, I should have done a better job tucking my shirt in, but that’s what I get for changing in a car. 🙈😳Also, these Kendra Scott earrings? Thanks to Rocksbox being one of the best subscription services ever, I got them for a whopping $9. They are originally $55! The necklace and these earrings are, reluctantly, the only things I’ve kept from my Rocksbox, not for lack of want though. Feel like giving it a try? Use darlingdearestblogxoxo” to get a month free!
Friends, how is your summer going? I’m finally home from two absolutely wonderful weeks of vacation. It feels so good to not have an agenda right now. Fingers crossed that this will mean the return of a normal blogging schedule and an a bit more engagement on my side of things:)!
