Styling $7 Paper Bag Shorts

Top: Old Navy | Shorts: Shein | Sunglasses: Shein | Shoes: Birkenstocks |

 Bag: Forever 21 (similar) | Necklace: thrifted 

Okay guys, I have something to confess. Since posting about the sweaters I got from Shein, I have placed 4 more orders from them. Honestly I just can’t pass up a good deal on trendy pieces that I may only wear a few times, so Shein is a great website for that! 

These shorts in particular were only $4.80 when I purchased them because of a sale, but even now they are only $7! Such an affordable way to test out a new trend! They are so comfy and perfect for the “paper bag shorts” trend of summer 2018. If you haven’t heard this term before, it is basically just referring to the ruffled waistline that resembles a cinched paper bag! I really like that this pair is neutral but still has stripes to make them a little more fun. The length of these shorts is also great, and the cinched waistline is flattering! 

Sunglasses are another great thing to buy from Shein if you prefer buying cheaper sunglasses. These were only $5 and they have become my go-to sunglasses of the summer. 

Overall this outfit is one of my favorites because it is affordable, cute, and comfortable. I love how these shorts are a bit fancier than just jean shorts and make it look like I put more effort into my outfit than I actually did.
