Tribal print

Its been screaming hot here this summer with no chance of cool breeze or temperature drops in the evenings - weather conditions I have never experienced while I lived in Boston. Well its a no-brainer then - I have become a fan of shorts after moving to the Washington, DC area. Evidently, this summer, I added two types of shorts to my wardrobe - colored shorts which you have seen here and the tribal-print shorts in the pics below.

I am loving this print; its dark-colored and plus its an eye-catching print. I can already see it paired with neutral colored tops and of course blue tops too :) I think they are going to be a great alternative for printed skirts /capris.

This what I wore, one Saturday morning, while running errands ..my first choice to pair these shorts was a white tee and some matching jewelry. I added tribal-print cuffs to go with the theme :)

We shot these pics in an empty office building!! The lighting was unique and so was the background - J and I decided to give it a 'shot'. We were visiting the office of our town association in this building anyways..
Two birds in one stone, eh? ;)



 What I wore: Shorts - Calvin Klein@Nordstorm Rack; Top - NY&Co.; Jewelry - Sears; Flats - American Eagle; Bag - Coach; Aviators - Tory Burch; Cuffs - F21; Watch - Anne Klein

I have had my eyes on an ikat print shorts at Gap, but reasoned that in 2 weeks of summers in Seattle, I won't get a chance to wear them! You have styled them so perfectly and I would remember this in case I give into temptation and actually get those shorts!
