Time & Tru Shorts Outfit and The Paper Bag Trend

We have to wait a few weeks for summer to actually arrive but days are definitely becoming warmer and that means shorts season!  Sunshine is supposedly headed our way this week and I want to be ready!

Great news about the paper bag waist trend.  It flatters everyone!  You can’t say that about most trends; most only cater to specific body types.  This one pulls in your waist and the material surrounding it is looser so you have room to move.

This top and shorts are from the Time & Tru line at Wal-Mart.  If you are new to this blog, please check out my recent Time & Tru posts (link below).  I’ve been pleased with everything I have received.  The quality is quite good considering the affordable prices.

These trendy paper bag waist shorts are a tad shorter than I normally wear.  The fabric is thin but not transparent. You would definitely stay cooler in these; they are a lightweight woven knit crepe material.  I did have to iron them after unpacking but haven’t washed them yet.  Hopefully, they will come out of the dryer wrinkle free. I am not a fan of ironing!  They have sold out in this color but have the olive green in larger sizes. I also found a few longer options.


I really like the knotted detail on this white tank.  It also comes in yellow, black and blue.  The faded black is next on my list to purchase.

The sandals are Tory Burch Millers in Vintage Vachetta which of course are not a bargain but I plan on wearing them for many years to come (yep, that’s called justification).
