Leopard by Southwest
Equipment top (similar), Grane shorts (affordable version I love), vintage belt, and Zara heels (close version)
I'm in the midst of an obsession with printed shorts, and this particular Southwestern pair begged to be paired with another print. While short shorts are generally not high on my list of wardrobe staples, I find that they make for an effortless go-to summer look when styled with a long-sleeved top and unexpectedly sharp heels. It's that tried and tested formula of showing some leg but covering up on top that appeals to me.
As I tend to do when I become enamored with a certain style or item, I stock up on redundant versions. So you can probably imagine the steadily growing pile of printed shorts that's accumulating in my bedroom. All that's missing is a little bit of sunshine for these long summer days.
