Gingham Shorts + Lace Top

Gingham shorts + lace top-2

Over the weekend, we went up to Tallahassee to move my sister Megan out of her dorm. I love the downtown Tallahassee area and jumped at the chance to shoot a few of my favorite outfits up there. Tallahassee is an interesting city– on one hand, it’s a major college town. #GONOLES. On the other hand, it’s a state capital and has a really pretty and has some quaint buildings and restaurants. I’ll be honest, the food is one of my favorite parts of going back! Oh how I miss Pokey Stix from Gumby’s, Guthrie’s ‘Gut Box’, and Waffle House. (We don’t have Waffle House in South Florida!) I always love driving up to relive my college days… even if it’s just to move my sister in and out of her dorm!

I really miss living there. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I called Tally home! Looking back, I feel so nostalgic thinking about my roommates and friends, the fun times, the football games, the VIBE! In so many ways, I still feel like that girl, and in so many ways it feels like a different life. My friends have grown up, gotten married, had kids. I always say I wish I could go back and know then what I know now… I would rule the world! It’s a fun place to visit, and even still… will always be home in a way. The one thing I DON’T miss was my horrible sense of style. To be fair, it was the early 2000s. (Not to date myself or anything lol!) It was the Britney era, and there were a LOT of things I wore back then that make me cringe, HARD.

Luckily, my style has significantly evolved. Speaking of which…

I am obsessed with these shorts! Aren’t they adorable?? They’re so perfect for the spring and summer… I’d love them also paired with a chambray button down, a cute crop top, or an easy white tee. Dress them up for a night out with some heels, or keep it casual as I did with some flat sandals or maybe a Converse. (Yes, Converse is basically my answer to ANY styling query!)

I love this lace top, and it’s SO affordable. Finding an amazing lace top at a good price point can be tricky… this one is amazing! BTW– sort of annoying, they list the sizes as separate items! I linked to the small, which is the size I’m wearing. If you need a size other than small, just type the style name into the search bar and it should come up in all sizes!

Check out the look below and tell me how you’d style these shorts in the comments!
