get dressed . floral shorts

23 May

we took these photos a month ago (while we still had snow!) and now that it’s finally spring here, it’s time i shared them. if you’d like to see more posts like this (for little boys too), let me know and i’ll try to throw some into the rotation from time to time!

this is how we’re styling lila’s favourite new shorts :)

there are so many quick and easy ways to make a simple outfit just a little bit special :) and there are a ton of cute shorts out right now to choose from!

bonus: all of the tips above would easily translate for any other girly shorts too — think polka dotted shorts with a floral sweatshirt, lace shorts with a khaki vest, etc. limitless combinations!

which look is your favourite??

    Thanks for this awesome post! My favorites are accessorizing and mixing patterns. My little girl has some floral shorts from last summer that still fit so we might have to play with these ideas. Keep these posts coming….

    YES!!!! I am totally in love with this post, andrea! More for sure!! I would rock each of those outfits myself. Seriously, love them all. The last two are my favs.

    p.s. zara, please make those shorts in my size, I want!

    p.p.s. Lila looked like she was such a good sport for this – born model :)

    i love this post!! all those looks are so perfect! i have all boys so i’m tempted to steal these looks for myself! my favourite is a toss up between the tomboy look and the denim vest one!

    fantastic post and I love that there’s a nice range in terms of style and pricing.

  20. Mallory May 24 2013 at 12:50 pm #

    Yes! More posts like this. Lila is my style icon (I’m 26, and not at all pathetic). Boys looks would be much appreciated in this house too ;)

    Love Lila’s style! How does she fit in Zara kid clothes! She must be tiny! :)

  22. Nina May 25 2013 at 4:50 am #

    Is it bad that I am taking these style tips for myself? ;)

  23. Nitzalie May 25 2013 at 5:24 pm #
