Today, I really wanted to wear my Zara shorts, as they’re my only pair of non-colored low-rise shorts. In my opinion, Zara makes the best stretch denim. My few Zara pieces are almost exclusively bottoms, as they make really great basics (I have these awesome resin-coated jeans my aunt brought me from England) as well as awesome statement pieces (my sister bought me a digital kaleidoscope print pencil skirt). I decided to pair it with the nude bodysuit and grey Litas because the colors seemed to go really well together. The wash on the shorts is a little hard to match to everything, but this was a combo I undoubtedly loved.

I also decided to make a little .GIF for you guys. Just me in my shoes :)

Wearing: American Apparel cotton spandex jersey short sleeve t-shirt leotard, ZARA denim shorts, Jeffrey CampbellLita‘ in grey distressed leather, ASOS perforated leather collar (similar with tree spike studs), and American Apparel sparkle calf high socks (c/o).

That collar necklace is great and I love the gif you made. Are you always comfortable walking in these? I’ve been meaning to try them for so long!

I like the pairing of the bodysuit with the shorts, the collar definitely is my favorite part of this outfit.

Thank you, Ti! I love the collar, too, but it doesn’t get much wear. It’s SUCH a statement piece that I’m so cautious of over-wearing it. Lol.

Thanks! I always find it helpful to get the camera focused and use it on manual. It’s even easier if you can press the camera’s shutter yourself rather than use a remote.
