Fashion Friday – Off the Shoulder Black and White Shorts Outfit

Happy Fashion Friday!

Before we get to the subject of the day, don’t forget to enter the two giveaways happening on Running in a Skirt.  There is a $200 value yoga gear package, including a backpack mat holder, mat, towel, flip flops and tank.

Also for anyone with a dog, I have a free membership for a Dognition Assessment.  It’s a lot of fun and will give you some special insight into your pet.  Since it’s a pretty specific giveaway, the entries are lower so you have a good chance to win. You’ll also learn some fun games to keep their minds young– because healthy living should extend to our pets too! 🙂

On a side note, can someone explain to me why NBC has to show the gymnastics part of the Olympics after 11 PM?  Jeesh!  I’m allergic to staying up that late. 🙂

So back to the subject of the day now!  I know….. the proper Fashion blogger thing to do would be to move onto showcasing fall clothes at this point, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.  Summer is my favorite time of year and I don’t want to rush it.

I want to wear summer dresses, flip flops and shorts for as long as possible.

Black and White Shorts-8-2

Yes, I love new boots as much as anyone, but my true joy lands in fun summer outfits like this one.

I love the black and white combination in this outfit.  I used to wear the combination so much more when I was working at WLOS, but kind of pulled away from it.  The moment I slipped this on though, it just felt right.

Taking the shirt to an off the shoulder look updates this look for 2016.

Black and White Shorts-40-3

This look would be great for a Saturday on the town or visiting a local vineyard or brewery.  The black shorts and heels make this look more dressy than your average denim short.

Black and White Shorts-119-4

I like the length and cuff on these, it makes them easier to wear and more functional for adulting!

Black and White Shorts-1-1

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend and have a chance to enjoy something summery along the way.

    My closet if filled with black and whites! I simply love the combination! I too could live in Summer dresses and flip flops!
    Course a nice set of wedge sandals can just about dress up anything!

    Cute outfit. I am always wearing black. Last night I was glued to the Olympics watching gymnastics until midnight. I am paying for it today now.

    Beautiful! Love the look. And yes, staying up late for the Olympics is killing me too!

    I really don’t like watching the prime time coverage ?. I watched the gymnastics live and the commentators gave way better information than the primetime. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to keep calm if I waited to late to watch! I love Simone and Aly and I really wanted that redemption medal for Aly! Brought tears to my eyes when she finished her floor routine.

      Yeah- the prime time coverage is a bit odd. Especially what they choose to show and not show! Is it on

      • Meagan @ My Life as Mrs August 14, 2016 at 5:37 pm - Reply

        I think it was under NBC Olympics. If you watch signed into your network provider you have unlimited access to what they’re showing live online and you you don’t then I think they limit you to 30 minutes per broadcast.

    You look so cute Julie! Love the shoes!

    I hear you, I’m allergic to staying up late too!

    • JulieWunder August 14, 2016 at 4:38 pm - Reply

      Haha! I don’t care if it makes me an “old lady” either!

    Black & white might just be my two favorite “colors”! Love this look!!!

    this weekend is hike the Graveyard Fields and maybe hit a brewery or two

  12. I love the off the shoulder tops from WHBM. I usually pair them with capri but they look great with shorts too. Have a nice weekend!

    • JulieWunder August 14, 2016 at 4:36 pm - Reply

      They do! I love how timeless a lot of their items are.

  13. So cute! Love those off the shoulder tops.
