the week of the striped shirt: day 3

For day 3 of "The Week of the Striped Shirt" I'm gonna throw out a little leg. Clearly this is me playing I really wish it was warm out dress up in my closet, but just imagine how fun it will be to throw on some shorts - mix some prints - and get out in the sunshine (hopefully sooner than later)!

Vintage scarf; vintage belt; Abercrombie & Fitch(!) shorts; MK boyfriend watch; Anthropologie bracelet; apparently no shoes.

Oh yes, those are Abercrombie and Fitch shorts. I thought I had purged that store from my closet years ago (save for a few really great sweaters) ... but apparently I was wrong, and apparently I'm glad about it. I believe I picked these up on clearance in the early years of college. They are a super soft, thin linen material, and came with a belt that is long gone. A year ago I definitely thought about sending them off to Good Will, because they are quite large on my finally somewhat-recovered-from-the-"freshman 15"-figure. Thankfully, something kept me from donating the shorts (laziness or intuition?) because now this sort of military/safari look is back in a big way.
