Stripes, Shoes, and Bags: Yellow Shorts

Happy Friday!

Any exciting plans for the weekend? 
My weekend is going to be very busy. Next week, we are moving to a new apartment and we have a lot packing to do! Wish us luck.

Today's outfit post is about color. I don't wear bright colors very often; I usually gravitate to "safe" colors - grays, blues, and blacks. Black always looks stylish, gray can be worn with any other color, and blue is my favorite. However, summer is the season when I try to add more color to my wardrobe.
The safest way to style bright colors is to pair it with neutral colors (white, beige, black, gray, brown). Other way is to combine a vivid color with a print which has this vivid color on it. I followed the first option and wore yellow shorts with matching ballet flats, white-navy striped crop top, and navy shoulder bag (white and navy are both neutrals).
These ballet flats are from Zara's new collection and have nice small pointy toe. Furthermore, they are very very soft and comfy! I find it really hard to find comfortable ballet flats that I can wear for at least an hour without blisters, but these shoes pleasantly surprised me.
I was wearing: H&M crop top (sold out, similar here and here),
Zara shorts (on sale now),
Zara shoulder bag (old, similar here),
Burberry sunglasses, and Kate Spade New York watch.

Thank you for reading,
