I have to say that this is probably one of my favorite outfits so far this spring.  Shorts can be tough, but Rag & Bone really did these right with the stripe placement and the fact that they’re vertical.  Yes honey!  Vertical stripes are where it’s at!

I paired a white belt with this look because I wanted it to stand out against the darker colors.  Never shy away from wearing a belt.  If worn right for your body type, they are flattering and slenderizing and will nip your waist in just the right spot.  They can also carve out a waist that you may not really have or make you seem more proportional than you are.   So, I’m short waisted and busty.  A high waisted, thick belt can look so bad on me.  Like, really bad!  I tend to wear my belts a little lower on the waist to make my torso seem longer and more in proportion with my legs.  I’ve always been envious of the longer waisted girls that can pull of this look!  At any rate, know your body type and wear what makes you feel amazing!

I also have to tell you that if you don’t own any Pedro Garcia shoes, and can afford them, buy some!  I got these wedges last year, and they’re soo comfy!  I know, they’re also super high!  These wedges are probably the highest heel I own, but I love them.  Pedro’s are made in Spain and have the softest leather that really mold to your feet over time.  The velcro closure allows them to fit your feet exactly right.  They also make plenty of mid heel shoes every season!  I always have a pair on hand that are perfect for running around in all day.

Lastly, this bag though!  It’s so fun and playful!  Proenza designed some really interesting pieces in this collection.  It’s always fun to see the designers put a spin like this on one of their classic pieces!

Oh and the earrings!  I have found the perfect hoop.  For $68, this hoop by Argento Vivo is a must this season!  It’s all about earrings right now, and these make a statement without overdoing it.  This outfit was so much fun for me..can you tell the excitement?!  I hope you enjoy!

The Fit Guide: The top runs true to size, as well as the shorts.   The shorts maybe run a little on the big side, but still get your normal size because you don’t want these to be tight (the fabric doesn’t stretch at all).  The wedges also run true to size.  Some people go up a half size in Pedro, but I felt like these were fine in my true size.

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you’re having a great weekend!  Don’t forget to check my Instagram to see everything I’m doing in Palm Springs in the next few days!
