The Cool Girl Shoe to Pair with White Shorts

The saying “the shoes make the outfit” definitely applies to today’s look. Typically when people think of a casual summer outfit with denim shorts, they might think of pairing the look with sandals, sneakers, or wedges. But I’m pretty sure not many people are pairing white shorts with leather creepers for Summer, which is why this outfit is so much more elevated than your typical Summer look. The cool girl shoe of choice, these leather creeper mules from Coach are effortlessly chic, easy to slip on and go, and totally make a fashion statement. So the next time you’re looking to jazz up your tee + shorts look, consider a pair of flat mules or creepers instead. Don’t you guys agree that these shoes instantly add edge to an otherwise somewhat boring look?!

Another great piece to pair with short shorts is a boho style, long-sleeve blouse. Cover up on top so you can show off your legs. I’m all about proportions. This Tobi top was the perfect complement to the shorts, and the loose fit and billowy sleeves give it an effortless effect. To add a pop of color to my navy and white outfit, I chose my Vera Bradley watermelon bag that you might be tired of seeing, but I just can’t get enough!

For my jewelry, I went with bright pink tassel earrings for a fun touch, and a delicate silver necklace from Thomas Sabo. I also layered on two silver bracelets for a casual chic vibe. Finally, I chose a bright orange-red lip for an elevated touch.
