Mix and Match: Peasant Top and Colored Shorts

I told you a couple of weeks ago that I loved this gold chevron peasant top, so here's a Mix & Match feature with it for ya.  Peasant tops are kind of a thing right now, and this gold detailing keeps the top interesting but is subtle enough that you can work it into a bunch of outfits.  

I also really recommend a pair of colored shorts for the summer.  Target has a 5" (shown in this post) and a 3" pair of shorts that come in a TON of different summery colors like coral, light blue, yellow, red, this green, and a bunch of neutrals.  I really miss my coral shorts right now!

Outfit 1
Don't you love a great trouser jean?  This is a perfect complement to the boho feel of the peasant top.  I included a large crossbody (is much larger than appears in this collage) and an open-toe wedge to maintain the boho vibe.  I added a peachy coral accessory for a pop of color, but you could really add ANY color to this very neutral palette.  

(I'm not huge on bracelets, UNLESS they are elastic like this one.  The elastic helps the bracelets stay in place, whereas bangles, especially metal bangles, clink around all day making noise and sliding up and down my wrists.)

Shop Outfit #1:
Top: J.Crew Factory (on sale plus 30% off)
Jeans: Gap 
Shoes: Old Navy
Bag: Target (click here for lighter version that matches shoes)
Bracelet: Forever 21

Outfit 2
The green shorts add a fun pop to the neutral peasant top.  I brought out the gold in the top with gold accents in the necklace, earrings, and the shoes!  How cute is this pair of glitter sandals?  Looooove!  

Great outfit for errands or a casual summer date.  

Shop Outfit #2:
Shorts: Target
Jacket: Target
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Forever 21
Earrings: Forever 21

Outfit 3
I couldn't help but bring back the navy polka dot top from last week's post.  It's too versatile to not use it again!  While last week I showed an outfits for going out or work and one for a summer party with this top, here's one that's beachy casual.  I love it with green shorts!  I added a yellow tote to complete the summer look.  Plus, yellow and green look great together.  ;)

Shop Outfit #3:
Top: J.Crew Factory (click here for veryyyyy similar Kohl's version)
Shorts: Target
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Forever 21
Bag: DSW

I hope you're sporting a pair of colored shorts this summer!  


  1. Bright shorts are great! They make it easy to bring in color to an outfit and make your "tee and shorts" look a little more put together and polished. Great remix post as always! Love each and every one!

  2. i actually have that top!! but no clue where it is in my closet... LOL!!

    Sandy a la Mode

  3. Damn Target don't ship internationally :-( I love the green shorts!!!

  4. So many cute looks! I really love that peasant blouse--I'm hoping there will be a good Fourth of July sale so I can get it at a good price :)
    I practically live in colored shorts in the summer time--today I wore an orange pair!

  5. So hard to mix and match outfits!
    Think you're done it nicely!


  6. Love the outfits! Any other good sources for colored shorts? Target's supply is quite disappointing.

  7. Hey Paula! I'm not sure what you mean when you say Target's supply is disappointing. There seems to be plenty in stock in all colors and sizes.

    Old Navy has a couple of colored shorts, but not many.

  8. You are knocking these posts out of the park!
