Aug 11, 2010

floral tap shorts

what I wore
floral tap shorts

This Spring and Summer I have been hooked on tap shorts, or what I was formerly calling "flowey" shorts.  I picked this pair up on sale at the Foreign Exchange at my local mall for $13.. yeap total STEAL!!
Outfit 1- my summer essentials

this Summer all I need are bold sunnies, cropped tops,
 tap "flowey" shorts, clogs, cross necklaces, and a bucket bag
F21 crop top
FOREIGN EXCHANGE tap shorts
JEFFREY CAMPBELL charli-c clogs
E-BAY sunnies
GUESS watch
ALDO bag
F21 cross


Outfit 2- print mix

not sure if you have noticed.. as of late I love mixing
clashing prints, and these shoes make it super easy
JEFFREY CAMPBELL "mariel" wedge
GUCCI sunnies


also wore these shorts here, definitely got my money's worth ;)

love these shorts!! I was actually trying to find out where you got them in the first post you featured them because they are great! and i love that you found out they are "tap" shorts...i def. did not know that lol and flowey shorts sounded official enough for me! ;)

you have to have a post with all your new F21 purchases!! Quite honestly I have only ever bought 2 items from a F21 store so I am thankful for online shopping and even still the US stores have so much more. Share!! :)

Have a great day babe!
