Paperbag waistlines are so in right now and I am seriously obsessed. When it comes to pants, shorts or skirts you can’t go wrong! Paperbag shorts are perfect for summer too because they are not so form fitting and tight on your body that they actually keep you cool. This type of cut usually sits higher on the waist and usually has elastic with a belt or tie. Paperbag cuts are flattering on just about any body type too because they cinch your waist and can be a more relaxed fit or form-fitting.
I found these striped paperbag shorts a few weeks ago in Forever 21 but they literally sold out within a few days. I did link them anyway just in case they get restocked but I also linked a few other affordable options too! FYI I am wearing them in size XS.
YES I am very well aware that my legs are 100 shades lighter than my arms ….. The struggle is real ya’ll! You would think living in Atlanta and being that it’s 5,000 degrees everyday that I would have a crazy tan. Unfortunately I’m in my office most of the day so I’m pretty pale.
My ribbed tank is also on sale for only $5 HERE!!! It comes in 4 colors and I got it in the XS size but I plan to go back to snag the other colors too! My espadrille sandals are sadly not available online. I actually got them in Forever 21 too a few months ago but for some reason they never listed them online. I did link some similar options though below.
