I was out shopping for vacation-wear when I came across these cactus shorts from The Impeccable Pig! My first thought was Show Me Your Mumu, and I figured I’d try them out. If I loved them, I’d invest. I put these on and immediately fell in love.
Come to find out, they actually weren’t Mumu! And, they’re just under $50 – sign me up for another pair, am I right? The cactus pattern comes in a set, but I only bought the shorts because I prefer to match them up myself!
I’m smaller in the waist and thicker in the thighs, so I’m so picky about shorts, but these give enough room in the leg, with a stretchy waistband. The shorts are pretty breezy and wear well with a top tucked in or out. Be careful when drying them, though, because the lining doesn’t shrink, and the actual short material does. I definitely recommend hanging to dry!
The shirt that I paired with my shorts is from The Impeccable Pig too, but I bought it a little while back. It’s definitely become a staple for any patterned shorts or pants. You can never go wrong with a detailed white top! I’ll list some other favorite detailed white tops perfect for pairing with shorts below.
Y’all have seen these shoes before – I wear them with almost everything that I can. They’re super comfortable and the nude color goes with everything. I couldn’t recommend them enough, so much so, I wear them on repeat.
Funny story actually – when I was packing for California (naturally decided to pack the day I was heading back to my parent’s house before leaving on my trip), I could have sworn I had left these shoes in my car. I packed up my full bag, and even put my suitcase in the trunk. I was about to leave then reminded myself I should double check.
Surprise surprise, they weren’t in my trunk. I turned over my closet, workout bag, living room, laundry room, and could not find them. My roommate and I wear a lot of the same size and always borrow things from each other, so I texted her to see if she had borrowed them. Turns out she did and was out day drinking with some friends. I literally drove to her and made her switch shoes because I needed these for the trip. She said she hadn’t seen them in my closet before, which totally tells how often I wear them!
The blush fringe purse is an older one, but I’ve linked a similar one here!
