Here's what I wore:
|crochet crop top from Express, print shorts from Target, black leather sandals by Mariella (a find at Marshall's!), Louis Vuitton purse, Heroine lipstick by M.A.C|
I spotted these shorts while shopping with my mom in Target. I almost bought them a size smaller, as to avoid making any alterations. While the smaller size fit, the fit was something that would relegate these shorts to beach wear and not walking around the city comfortably. My mom insisted on me sizing up and helped me realize what a simple alteration it would be-- due to the print and pockets, all I had to do was take an inch or so in from each size following the pocket line. Perfect! As I continue to grow and hone my style, I realize the importance of a great fit. Even when it requires some work.
