I love summer. I love New England and Palm Beach. So obviously, I love Lilly Pulitzer. Back in May, I couldn’t leave St. Armand Circle without stopping by the Lilly Pulitzer store and, of course, I couldn’t leave without these Buttercup Scallop Hem Shorts! I love that they are bright, cheerful, and oh-so-Florida!
Unfortunately, I got home to Boston and didn’t know how to wear them! We’re such a preppy city, but I’m not exactly following the Prep Handbook when I go shopping. I tried a navy tee, a blue tank, a pink sweater, and a white off the shoulder top and nothing looked quite right.
“Kara,” you’re probably saying, “Just put a white t-shirt on and call it a day!” You’re right. A fitted white tee is a necessity in any stylish woman’s closet. Guess what I was missing? Actually, I’m still in need of one or five (long story) but I’m obsessed with the throwback 90s style of this sleeveless, mock neck. It’s not the best for humid days, but I just love how it fits! My favorite denim jacket finishes off my scallop hem short outfit.
I have to admit though scallop hem shorts and a sweater, even a thin, sleeveless one can be hot. Messy, Britney bun ahead!
