So the other day I bought two new things. A pair of shorts and some shoes.
Two *totally* separate purchases. For two *totally* different functions.
I wasn’t supposed to actually wear them together. But by haphazard accident (or laziness), I did.
And the result was a very relaxed, effortless, “Sporty Luxe” look… which was so much fun to wear.
Bonds Summer Shorts – Lemon
I was walking through Big W to buy my son a lunch box. I spotted these cute, drawstring cotton shorts (RRP $34.90, but these were on sale for $20) and grabbed one in size 8. I needed some soft, slouchy shorts to wear around the house or when I go for a run or walk. Most of my shorts are denim, tailored with cuffs or formal looking.
They turned out to be soooo comfy that I just wore them all day! I wore them while walking my boys to school. Then I put on a cardigan while going to the shops to buy apples (I get cold in the air conditioning). Then I realised we were going out for lunch with my parents and of their friends (in the fancy part of town) so I QUICKLY grabbed a blazer to throw on top and changed my shoes.
Yep, so it turned out that the sporty luxe look is AWESOME, and I’ll definitely be doing more of it :)
Nine West Leather Wedge Sandals
I’m completely in love with these sandals. I love the design, the leather, the mid heel, and the fact that they were on sale.
They are a gorgeous pair of shoes… especially because they give my everyday outfits a nice stylish omph.
This style is called “Play FWD” and I’m wearing a size 5.
