Fashion Cure for the Monday Blues

I love fashion, and I love photography. So, recently I decided to mix the two to show some fun summer colors and trends.

First, of course- the jorts. High waisted vintage jorts are a must-have this summer. They can be worn a million different ways, but I love them paired with a fitted tank and an open silk blouse. The purple and teal combo pops for a casual summer outfit. I also love these colorful Aztec platforms. They are so comfortable and add color to any outfit!
 Secondly, A hi-lo hem is very trendy this summer. I love the particular cut, because it gives you the loose flow of a maxi and the breeze of a short skirt! I paired this nude hi-lo dress with a hanging vest and tied it with a petite rope to create a nice waistline. The bright pop of color spices up the neutral color scheme.
I’m all about fashion on a budget, so I’d thought I’d show how both of these outfits were very affordable. The prices aren’t exact, but they’re all close!

Dress: Forever 21- about $20
Hanging Vest: Forever 21- about $30
Rope Belt: came on another shirt- free!
Platforms: Steve Madden, Dillard’s Clearance- around $25
Earrings: Forever 21- $6

Jorts: made from Goodwill jeans- $5
Teal tank: J. Crew on sale- $8
Purple blouse: J. Crew Clearance- $30
Platforms: Target- around $30
Gold Cuff- Forever 21- around $7
Necklace- Forever 21- around $8

P.S. Stay tuned for my next post to see how to make your own $5 Goodwill Jorts!
