WHITE SHORTS: NASTYGAL (UNDER $50) | CROP TOP: NORDSTROM (ONLY $16) | PLATFORM SANDALS: SEYCHELLES | SUNNIES: FREE PEOPLE

I spend a lot of my time styling outfits, and I am always looking for stand out pieces that will create that perfect look. It always comes as a surprise to me when the simples looks become my favorite. This look is a no-brainer, just a plain crop top and a pair of shorts with a few fun accessories and yet it turned out so cute.

These paper-bag style shorts from Nasty Gal are super affordable at only $48 and also super flattering. The cinched waist is great for tucking in blouses and adds that extra touch of whimsy. I have been on a retro kick lately (did you see yesterday's post) and decided to keep things within the seventies era by adding my platform sandals and wire-rimmed sunglasses.

This entire outfit is under $200 (minus the bag) and can easily be re-created with pieces you might already own. Now if only Chapel Hill wasn't freezing at a mere 40 degrees, because I would definitely be rocking this look:)
