Orange Shorts Re-Styled


Ever since I wore these gorgeous shorts (here) I knew I wanted to re-style them in a more modern tone.  Enter the Inspiration Monday Series by twobirdsboutique.  This time they picked Ashlee Simpson as the inspiration and as soon as I saw the picture my mind flew to my H&M orange shorts.  But you know I just couldn't resist fine tuning the outfit a bit with my own touches.  I added this pretty necklace I recently got at H&M and instead of booties (please, it's 95 degrees) I wore these great wedge sandals I got in Las Vegas years ago.

Blouse:  H&M
Shorts:  H&M
Wedge Sandals:  (similar here & here)
Clutch:  F21 (recent)
Necklace:  H&M (recent)
Ring:  H&M (recent)
Sunglasses:  Chanel
Nail Polish:  Nails, Inc. 'Baker Street' (here)

  3. I envy you for that necklace. I saw it at H&M and I didn't buy it because I thought I wouldn't wear it. I'm so lame.

    Beautiful outfit.

  52. Dana!!!!! I'm back, love! Thank you for all your loving words while I was away. I really appreciate it and am thankful to have met such a sweet girl like you. I missed you just as much! xo

    Now, I am loving this outfit. I love anytime bloggers do restyles or remixes. Whatever you wanna call it. ;)
    I loved the previous nautical look with these shorts and I love this one as well. The flirty feel that comes with the orange and primary blue colors really gives the outfit that spunk! And I love that it also has the classic feel coming from the top and shoes in black and white. Absolutely lovely with those accessories, Dana! I missed your stylings!
