Best Friends

Top: Old Navy (shop)  |  Shorts: Target (shop)  |  Cardigan: Target (similar)  |  Necklace: Forever 21
Wedges: Kohl's (shop)  |  Bag: Old Navy

All of your comments about my copycat outfit on Friday gave me the confidence to rock this colorful outfit at the San Diego zoo!  Our best friends visited with their newborn, so in addition to the zoo, our weekend was filled with barbecues, great conversations, and dirty diapers.  Can't get better than that.

I bought these coral shorts last week while I visited my other best friend, aka Target.  I frequently get mad at shorts because they're typically to the knee or 3 inches long, which barely covers anything on me and makes me burn my rear on leather seats in the summer.  And, who likes that?  These babies are perfect for me at 5" and will save my bum from getting burned this summer!

  6. This outfit is great!  In fact, I think I have everything in my closet to recreate this outfit.  :)  I'm sure you were the most adorably dressed person at the zoo!

  7. So cute! Love the color of those shorts! And I'm shocked at some of the shorts out there with a 1/2" inseam. Having your cheeks hang out the back is disgusting, and hazardous with those hot leather seats!! Im on the hunt for some colored bermuda length shorts that I can wear this this summer!

  8. Love the entire look! The color combo is great! I think I will have to pick up a pair of those shorts on my next trip to Target. They are the perfect length!

  12. I need to get to target and buy those shorts! It is such a pain trying to find mid length shorts these days! I'm all for short shorts but sometimes I like to leave a little more to the imagination. lol

  15. Great colors! I need to get on some colorful shorts stat - it's quickly getting to outdoor temperatures where I need to swap them for the colored jeans! Also, I need to learn some bravery from your shorts + wedges combo. I've never dared for some reason, but I think it looks great...

  16. I love this look!  Very colorful, but not circusy.  I can't wait to get to Target and try some of their new, longer shorts :)

  17. Those shorts are the perfect length. And all the colors are, of course, awesome. Way to go Audrey!

  18. You're SOOO cute! I have been wanting a pair of coral jeans, but I might just have to go get those shorts. I agree, finding shorts in the perfect length is the worst. Those are perfect!

    So glad you all had so much fun!

  23. Seriously, what is with 3" shorts? I look at American Eagle and I'm pretty sure they don't even cover the lady bits entirely. It's all about the 5 inch shorts!

  24. I might have to see if I can find these shorts in my Target. I am in need of some not-super-long not-super-short shorts. These are really cute on you.

  25. Hi Judith,

    YES, they are very comfy! I hardly feel an incline on the wedge because of the platform. They're on sale, too!

  27. this is such a cute, carefree outfit, I love these colors together! (And I know what you mean, it is so hard trying to find shorts that are long enouph, but not frumpy.  These look awesome, I'll have to see if I can find them on the website.) :)

    I love those wedges- especially in the orange color on their site! And, yes, what is it with the shorts? Seriously. I need to seek out those ones at Target because the last ones I tried on there were not appropriate!

  34. LOVE THIS!!! I have this top too and now I am determined to find some alternate pairings... so cute!

  35. Love the necklace too! Where can i get one?im from singapore but will try to order online if i cant find one around here. And great blog. I've been inspired by your pieces for almost a year but this is the first time Im posting a comment. Thank you for your time to update your blogsite and help me, well, look put-together. Before, my choices are either, too comfy or too uptight for my personality., now i get to inspire other people to dress smarter but still comfy! More power to you!
