Hey girls! This past weekend it hit 90 degrees here in Dallas. Yep, 90 degrees. We get about 1.5 days of the wonderful 70s and then we're stuck in hotter than hell Dallas. Since it was only day 2 of the good 'ole Texas heat, I was still pretty excited and threw on a new pair of shorts I've been dying to wear. 

Top: H&M
Shorts: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Chinese Laundry - DSW
Sunglasses: Old Navy 
Earrings: Nordstrom Rack
Crescent Bracelet: Jewel Mint

Shop the look! 

I found these shorts at Nordstrom Rack when I talked Chris into "wasting time" while our house funding was going through. Good one, huh?! It definitely paid off. I had a giftcard to Nordstrom Rack from my birthday (yes, back in October) that I could not get off my brain. Not only that, but there's a new Nordstrom Rack in Dallas which is huge and new and clean and I couldn't wait to go check it out. 

It wasn't long before I spotted these lovelies and called it a day. They are the perfect short for summer, for real. Comfortable, light and just the right amount of length (I think). Plus, you can dress them up or down. Chris and I were just hanging around town Sunday while I wore them, but I could definitely see wearing them with a pair of cute wedges for a girl's day out or day-date with the hubs.

I also think they are going to be a hot item this summer. They are easy to wear and honestly I think any body type could pull them off. I mean, they aren't high waisted cut-offs... know what I'm sayin'?! 

What do y'all think? If you found a cute pair, would you buy 'em?

  1. Where is this new Nordstrom Rack?

    1. It's off the Tollway, right by Buy Buy Baby. I can't remember right now what else is over there.

  2. Love them! I'm glad you put them on the blog, especially after seeing them in person the other day! LOOOOOVE. If my legs were all covered in cellulite, I would totally indulge.

  3. Thanks, Cass! They are the most comfortable shorts ever! Plus, I love that they are multi-colored... adds just the right amount of spice. And hush, you could totally pull these off!

  4. That outfit is stylish, looks way comfortable, and cool. Thanks so much for linking up to the Be.You.Tiful Link Party!

  5. Love how comfy these shorts look! And I love the print - so pretty.
