Jade Green and Gold OOTD!

Happy halfway through the week lovelies! I actually have several OOTD pics stored up, so it was kind of hard to choose what one to use for today! Does this ever happen to anyone else? Since I am promoting my giveaway this week, I thought I would go with the one that includes the shirt that is being given away!
Jade and Gold Outfit of the Day
Jade green silk shorts with gold ampersand tee
Jade green silk shorts and gold ampersand top
Jade Green and Gold - Silk Shorts - Ampersand Top
 Top: Made In The Shade Shop Buy Here! // Shorts: Forever 21 // Sandals: Forever 21 // Bag: Francescas // Bracelets: Premier Designs & Charming Charlies

I was a little nervous to try out these shorts - when I first saw this trend, I hated it. But the more I saw of it styled in different ways, the more I liked it. When I saw these in this jade green color, and pretty affordable from Forever 21, I knew this was the time to test it out! These shorts do come in all black as well, and were just as pretty. I just own so many black things I decided to branch out a little. Forever 21 actually has several types of these shorts and all at affordable prices!
I love that these shorts can be dressed up or dressed down - and I love being able to wear that comfy top. This was such a great top for a day filled with errand running. This is one of the only times you'll see my hair up, because yes, it does in fact look like an old lady bun.  
Etsy Shop Giveaway!
Don't forget about the giveaway going on this week on instagram! It runs until Friday at 10am! You don't want to miss out!
What is your take on this new trend?
