Reader Request: Complementing New Shorts

Greetings Fashionistas,

What's good people? It's FRRIIIIDAAAAYYYY! Also known as the start of the 2-day break from work (I know, that makes it sound depressing). Anyhew, I'm headed out of town this weekend and I cannot wait to kick it with my girls. Yaaaaayyyyyy *insert happy dance here* I will be in the D.C. metro area so I'll try my best to hit up some of my blogger friends located in the area. It would be rude not to! 

Well, before I get out of here, let me share this reader request I received a couple of days ago from Kristi:

Can you help me find a blouse and shoes for an everyday look, with these shorts? 

I also included a link to the website just in case you needed another view.


Alright Kristi, thanks so much for the pic and the link to the actual website! I have some fun ideas for you and not knowing what your default style is (i.e. tomboy, chic, modern, whimsical, etc.) I totally threw in a bit of everything. My "every day" look is a bit all over the place so I assume most women I style for switch it up as much as I do. Now let's get started.
I made sure I downloaded the shorts from the website so that I could allow you to visually see my suggestions paired together. 

Look 1: I think pairing the shorts with a killer pump in a bright color will pop! In addition, add some patterns to create a chic and stylish outfit

Abrielle by Kelsi Dagger $125.00

Tie Back Printed Short-Sleeve Tee $24.50

Look 2: I know that sometimes we just want to take it easy with our style and I think a tee and sandals fit the bill. The top has horizontal stripes which is really trendy right now. Definitely an "every day" look. No fuss necessary.

Relaxed Striped Tee $9.80

Lipsy Flick T-Bar Jelly Flat Sandals $44.76

Look 3: Rock a well fit blouse and tuck into the waist of the shorts. Then throw in a pair of pumps and you have a classy and chic outfit.
Sheer Polka Dot Blouse $19.80

Waleo by Jessica Simpson $61.99

Look 4: A sunny hue such as yellow will certainly brighten your outfit. Rock a pair of thong sandals for a relaxed look.

BB Dakota Basha Crinkle Chiffon Blouse 

Dolce Vita - Isold - Tan Leather Thong Gem Sandal 

Look 5: I am all for adding a bit of edginess to any style. I think these shorts will work fabulously with a pair of tough booties and a graphic print tee.

Skeleton Club Tee $55.00 (on sale)

Ash Extreme Bootie 
$99.00 (on sale)

Look 6: If you vibe with the girly look, I would suggest pairing the shorts with a chiffon blouse and fun and practical wedges.

Chiffon Blouse $16.00

Finder by Joia $44.95

Look 7: For the girl that gravitates toward a tomboy style. I would suggest complementing the shorts with a short-sleeve or sleeveless button down shirt, a tie, and a pair of sneakers

Perfect Short Sleeve Cotton Shirt 

ASOS Chiffon Bow Neck Tie $14.32

Chuck Taylor Bleach Polka Dots $55.00

Well that wraps it up Kristi. I hope I've given you some good ideas for your fab new shorts! Have a great weekend and thanks for the request!

Facebook has one and the only one disadvantage. It is when you search for networking sites and see the main page of Facebook, you will notice that there is no information given before you register. By information I mean to say that nothing is mentioned that if you have to pay for registration or not. Mostly the social networking sites mention this thing on their homepage. Except for this information you can get all the other information about Facebook like rules and regulations, why you should become a member, etc.
Business Pages are like other user profiles on Facebook. They allow you to connect with others and can be created and managed by companies that want to increase their online presence and engage actively with customers.
