Fashion Over Forty: New Utility Shorts (again) with a Striped Shirt

Happy Friday! 

Surprise! I'm sharing another outfit featuring my new Olive Utility Shorts today :-) By the way, if you've been thinking about adding these to your wardrobe, they have now been marked down even more and are $19 but sizes are limited. I have both the Olive and Taupe, but have not worn the Taupe yet. However these olive shorts have been on repeat. They wash well and did not shrink. PS: Sizing down is recommended. I have them in 00 instead of my 0 and the fit is perfect!

Last week I styled them with a tie dye shirt and today I'm wearing it with a simply striped t-shirt which I topped with a cardigan.

Utility Shorts (Olive and Taupe) from White House Black Market (Now marked down to $19 - sizing down is recommended!)

This simple striped tshirt I've had in my closet for a couple of season. While I can't link to this specific top, I did find this navy/white striped shirt at Old Navy and think it would be a great alternative! And it's currently only $10 plus an extra 30% off at checkout. Unfortunately sizes are a bit limited here as well, but if you need a S, L, or XL or XXL then you're in luck!

My handbag is another oldie (but goodie). I did find this bag to be similar but quite expensive. Otherwise Amazon has some good prices and a great selection, but I  have no idea how well these bags will hold up. Many of them have great reviews!

I'm wearing these sandals on repeat. With the built in orthotics they are extremely comfortable and I love the thin strappy style. 

I always have a cardigan nearby in summer because I always get cold inside!! This pretty pink one is one of my favorites from last year purchased at LOFT. I found this pink cardigan currently available at LOFT. (Now an extra 50% off with Code: SMILE) It's a little longer than mine (I think) but perfect for the summer  months to throw over your outfit when indoors (and cold!) 

Open Cardigan from LOFT. 

Not much else to say about this look! It's hard to see in the photos, but I am wearing a tiny gold necklace with a sideways leaf charm. I've linked an option below.

Here are both looks side by side featuring these shorts. 
Which one is your favorite?

My kind of outfit but without the cardigan: still too crazy hot for that. Haven't worn my striped tops as much this year but still love them.

Olive shorts are a great neutral staple. I love how you styled these with the cardigan.

Cute summer outfit!

The pink looks really great with that green! Such a cute summer outfit!

Those shorts are so cute on you and I like the blush pink and olive combo! It's something I need to try more often, I have olive shorts that would look so cute with blush pieces but so far I've only worn blush with my olive jeans - this outfit has given me the perfect idea though, once the weather warms up! thank you!

Thank you for joining the #weekdaywearlinkup!

Hope that you had a lovely weekend :)
