Sometimes, I find myself wishing that I had more variety in my closet– texture-wise at least. Because I’m mostly frugal and thrifty, I seem to be pretty limited to the usual cotton and polyester blend, which doesn’t even really bother me. I’m not a stickler for fabric. But when Zara is having a sale– a sale that brings a $130 pair of suede shorts down to $39, you buy it. YOU. BUY. IT. I saw them and I did not let go. I tried them on and crossed my fingers that they looked good on me. And if they didn’t, that I would find a way to make it work. They actually felt like a perfect fit, but there was one problem. THE. TEXAS. HEAT. While shooting this outfit, I could barely get them past my sweaty thighs, and then started laughing because I felt like I was Ross from Friends putting on those leather pants, saying “AAAAND THE LOTION AND THE POWDER HAVE MADE A PASTE!” I Well these gorgeous shorts, no matter how difficult they were to put on, look even better when accompanied with amazing accessories. The Lemon Drop Boutique necklace and cuff (which you’ve probably seen if you watched my Summer Haul Video) worked perfectly along with this belt from With Love From Rigby (which, by the way, is owned by the awesome Valery Brennan… I know right? Talk about #girlboss). So yes, even though suede isn’t an ideal summer material, you cannot stop me from wearing these shorts. Heck, I’d even wear them year-round.
