scalloped shorts

blouse: c/o: joe fresh // shorts: gap // heels: aldo // bag: h&m // watch: marc by marc jacobs

Scallop detailing seems to be everywhere lately.
I've seen it on countless items but what really got me into the detail were these Gap shorts. They're just so unbelievably cute, how can one resist? This girl could not! My reasoning? I don't own a scalloped pair of shorts ;)

I thought it would be fun to pair these shorts with a fun blouse. It's funny, I became completely obsessed with this blouse a few months ago because of the fun details but despite wearing it quite often, I haven't featured it on the blog until now! You know you have a lot of clothes when... hahah. Also in classic Melanie style the outfit needed a pop of colour and in came my favourite shade of red (NARS heatwave) and my bright clutch.  There you have it my friends, a classic outfit with some fun details!

Happy Wednesday!

Ps. HOW is it almost August? Seriously summer, SLOW down!


  1. Um, your justification for needing these shorts in your life is completely on point. The shopping addict in me would totally have the same logic.

    Loving this outfit so much. The blouse is awesome and because it's so different, there's another justification for us!

  2. Love those shorts and that cheeky top!!

  3. Not already owning scalloped shorts seems like the perfect reason to buy those! And I love your adorable, funky top! Great pops of color too!

  4. I LOVE that top Melanie.. So cute!

    xoxo, Kali

  5. I love how you paired your clutch shade with your lipstick shade. It adds that extra something to the outfit. :)
    The blouse looks awesome paired with shorts. Great combination :)
