Splurge on: Shorts

With spring just around the corner, I'm more aware than ever of what's currently lacking in my closet: shorts. And it seems that shorts are one of those items that are more difficult to find at a thrift store. Which means I'll have to start looking elsewhere...and now!

So I thought if I had some extra cash, here are a few pair of shorts that I'd splurge on to fill my closet for this spring and summer. Keep in mind that "splurging" for me, a cheapskate, is probably not considered "splurging" by most people :)

1: ModCloth Little Lovin' Shorts
Price: $32.99
Color: Red, Black and White print
I'd style it with: A ruffled black tank top and flats with a cross-the-body bag.
Wear it where? Concert, music festival, thrifting.

2: Forever 21 Nautical Stripe Shorts with Tie Belt
Price: $15.80
Color: Blue and White Striped

I'd style it with: A white eyelet tank top, flat gladiator sandals and a large straw tote.
Wear it where? Boating, picnicking. 

3: Old Navy Frayed Cuffed Denim Shorts

Price: $32.99
Color: Denim
I'd style it with: Plain gray tee or tank, oxford shoes and an oversized studded clutch.
Wear it where? Dog walking, latte-getting, lazy Sundays. 

4: Etsy Seller OneCafeLatte High Waisted Romantic Shorts

Price: $40.00
Color: Hot Orange/Coral
I'd style it with: Tiny polka dotted print sleeveless top, wedges and doctor bag. 
Wear it where? Brunch, shopping.

5: ASOS Pleat Front Tailored Shorts

Price: $62.76
Color: Burnt Orange
I'd style it with: Cream lace top, platforms and large hobo bag.
Wear it where? Weekend working lunches, dinner with family.
Bonus: Take these into fall and winter with thick tights or knee socks. 

6: ShopRuche Anytime You Need Me Belted Shorts

Price: $39.99
Color: Olive
I'd style it with: Plain cotton tank top, flat sandals and small cross-body bag. 
Wear it where? Thrifting, antique shopping, music festival. 
*HURRY! There's only 3 pair left! eek! 

Price: $54.00

I'd style it with: Anything. Especially yellow. 
Wear it where? Everywhere! I am loving scalloped shorts, I'd probably live in these this summer!
