striped shorts and vintage blouse - Thrifting Diva
Spring is here, so let’s pull out those shorts!  This week, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I are styling our shorts.  Check out Keren’s blog to see the details of her beautiful floral shorts. I am truly loving the pinks in her outfit.

Striped shorts and vintage blouse - Thrifting Diva Striped shorts and vintage blouse - Thrifting Diva I have had these shorts for a couple of years now, and I swear that I am able to reinvent them every time I wear it.  I purchased these shorts for only $5 online at Forever 21 during a major end of season clearance.  They were originally $22.  Retail stores have an amazing sales and clearances that can sometimes rival the prices you pay at thrift and consignment shops.  Don’t forget about them on your shopping list.

  1. Urgh shorts 😉 You both look fabulous, you both have great legs, but it’s something I only wear at home haha. And those embellished pumps are beautiful.

    Thanks for hosting again 🙂

  2. Both pairs of shorts are gorgeous. I am looking to add both some floral and B+W striped shorts this Summer. I am in love with the emerald blouse, also. =))
