Very Cherry

I love the sales this time of year! All of my favorite stores, from J. Crew to Zara, are offering mega deals right now in an effort to clear out summer styles in order to make way for fall. Not being one to miss out on a good sale, I've been taking advantage of these deals over the last week or so.  In my shopping for these summer deals, I've noticed a pattern with some of my purchases in so far as many of the clothing items I've purchased are fruit themed! This obviously includes the cherry print shorts that I have on today, which I picked up for around $20 at J. Crew.

In addition to cherries, I've also purchased other fruit themed items including ones with watermelons, lemons and ladybugs. Yes, I realize that ladybugs do not qualify as fruit, but they do help to keep pests off plants (possibly fruit plants?), so I am going to throw them in the fruit mix as well! Why not?

Styling these shorts was easy! Online I saw that J. Crew had paired them with a striped ruffle top. Luckily for me, I have many such tops already in my wardrobe! In the future, I could definitely see these shorts paired with either a navy or red striped T-shirt or just a polo shirt for more of a preppy look. Just like a fruit salad, the possibilities for what to mix these shorts up with are endless!
