Thriftanista Style File: tie front shirt, high waist shorts

I think shorts are the perfect compromise for dress loving mamas on the playground. Even though walking shorts are pretty casual, you can spice it up with accessories. My "flare" today is bright purple lips, bright nails, a tie front shirt, and a couple of bracelets. 

The shorts I'm wearing are from a thrift haul last year. I love the bright color and I especially love the high waist. I saw the length on the zipper and knew they were a winner! My navel is as snug as a bug in the rug.

SN: Shorts would probably look better if I took the time to iron the very wrinkly material. One day.....

What a fantastic look! I've been really into yellow this summer too. The pop of the nail polish is so fun! When I'm on the playground like I was today w/ my LO (in 90+ degree heat!) I'm in little shorts and a tank running through the sprinklers.

Your playground look makes my playground look a mess. I'm now giving my tattered capris, tee, and flip flops the old *side-eye* LOL!

That look is hot. Love it!

Hugs and Mocha,
