Mini Haul: Shorts

Yesterday I spent de day with my mom. She came to visit me in Maastricht and we went shopping. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular so I didn’t have anything in mind I wanted to buy. Sometimes having something in mind almost always results in you not finding it. That was not the case with me. I bought some things I am really excited about to wear and I’ll tell you what they are.

I didn’t know what I was about to find in the stores. And let me tell you: I liked almost EVERYTHING! It was bad. I wanted to try on so many things, which I did. And I’m glad I did because sometimes things look cute in the store, but they don’t look good on me.  So, some things I wasn’t such a fan of, but other things I did like…a lot. I ended up buying 3 shorts for the summer.

I almost never buy new shorts. I’ve been wearing the same ones for a few years now and it never comes to my mind to buy new ones. For some reason I never really enjoy shopping for shorts. But this year they have so many cute ones.


The first ones I bought are these linen striped high waist shorts. They are blue and white, and they are very comfortable. They are from Mango, and they were €29,99.


The second shorts are these white flamingo shorts. I saw these once before on the Zara site, which is where bought them, and I fell in love with them the moment I saw them. They were €29,95. I’ve been looking for shorts with a cute print for a while. I really love the ones Vineyard Vines have but they don’t ship to Europe, unfortunately.  I am not a big fan of holes in shorts, but I didn’t really care with these ones, because they have flamingos in them! I think they’re really cute and I can’t wait to wear them.


The third ones I bought are kind of shorts but also kind of a skort. I used to wear skorts when I was really little, and I cringed at the idea that they were back in fashion. With these ones I thought they didn’t look that much like a skort, so I didn’t mind it that much. I thought the gingham print was very cute and the fabric is very comfortable. They were also from Zara and the costed €39,95.


What I love about all these three shorts is that it doesn’t take much to dress up. I can wear all of them with just a basic white t-shirt, put on some cute flats or heels, have some accessories with them and I’m ready to go. They’re almost a no brainer. They only problem now is that I can’t wear them yet… I still have to be patient for a little while till the weather is better. I can’t wait!

    Those flamingos are so cute! I feel like the others would look better on though perhaps? It can be hard to know sometimes

  5. These shorts are too cutie! I am horrible at going shopping myself, if I don’t have anything to buy I end up getting nothing. Hopefully the next time I hit the store I get lucky!
