The Shorts You Need For The Season (and a Gucci giveaway!)

My “girlfriend” jean shorts have been on serious repeat these past few weeks, and this style in particular needs to be in your closet ASAP. The higher waisted fit makes it a flattering fit for any body type, and the well placed and authentically antiquing give them a lived-in feel that’s to die for. The best part about these shorts? They’re less than $20! I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the recent new finds from Forever21, as the quality and fit are pretty amazing for the price these days. Grab a couple pairs for the summer, because why not?

Given the amazing weather recently, I paired them over the weekend with one of my favorite sports bras ever by Alala, linked below, and it was perfect for an afternoon out at the beach. My favorite Nike wedge sandals were a perfect fit for this outfit as well. Since they’re a discontinued style, I’ve also linked my favorite summer sandals so you can achieve the same look.
