Reality Check. I really can’t think of a single place I would wear this in public and not feel like kind of an idiot. But with that said, Trev and I did have a pretty great time snapping pics of a silly, cutesy outfit against a backdrop of a perfect summer sky and lime green field.
Pairing short shorts with a midriff-showing, pattern mixing top is absolutely NOT a realistic look for me, but I loved how the checked pattern of the shirt was repeated in the small piping at the bottom of the shorts. It seemed too stuffy and awkward to wear the shirt tucked in, which was my original plan. The repeat is subtle. The outfit, not so much.
