The tale of the JCrew Shorts

I was window shopping a few months when I came across this pair of jacquard print short at Jcrew. I immediately fell in love with the color --Neon Persimmon, the big pockets, and the structured silhouette. I instinctively grabbed a size 10 and went home with my new find.

As much as I love clothes, I am very frugal, and spending almost $70 on a pair of shorts does not in anyway fit into my budget. So I convinced myself that the I did not need the shorts and I took it back for a refund. 

A few weeks later, I went to my pharmacy which happened to be in a mall, and I decided to stop at JCrew to just "browse" (yeah, like that ever works). Lo and behold, the shorts were on sale for $20! At the register, there was a further discount and I paid a total of $12.49!! At that point, I knew the fashion gods were smiling down at me and wanted me to have the shorts. 

 Below is how I rocked it to a cook out the very next day.

I have no idea what I was doing here
It also comes in a faux wrap skirt style.
Happy humpday chicas!

The fashion gods were really with. It's a really pretty story just like your shorts. I used to have a green J Crew short. Was wearing it all the time till the colour finally faded away. Hahaha
