The minute I laid eyes on these Juicy banana leaf shorts, I knew that I had to find a replica of something less expensive. I saw them featured on a few celebs in US Weekly, on other style blogs and at a Kendra Scott event. I just couldn't bring myself to spend the money on one pair of shorts.
I was in Target the other day, I know shocker, and randomly came across the ones I am wearing in this post. The print immediately made me think of the sought after Juicy ones that I couldn't take my mind of off. I will not lie to you, I did a small little dance as I swiped them off the rack and I whisked them away to the dressing room. I am easily amused.
Yes, I know that these are not an exact dupe of the ones I was drooling over, but they sure come close. In my opinion, they are just as dazzling and for a sweeter price tag. I looked online and couldn't find them, but they are in Target stores and the Mossimo brand.
I do believe that I may have found the perfect pair of printed shorts for less than $20. I plan on wearing these bad boys as much as possible this summer. They can easily be jazzed up with a dressy top and heels or could be thrown on over a swimsuit for the beach. I am all about versatility.
What expensive items have you been lusting over lately? Are you willing and waiting to find a less expensive version or have you taken the plunge and purchased?
While we are on the subject of fashion, I am over the moon to introduce you to one of my favorite style bloggers, Jenny from Crazy Style Love. Believe me, I am not just saying that because she is on my side bar. I have been reading and lusting over her style almost since they day I started blogging.
What I love about our relationship is that we are friends from other countries. You see, Miss Jenny resides in Canada . See, blogging does connect us to people from all over the world.
Just take a look at some of her home run, knock it out of the park looks.
Jenny is going places, people! She is featured in the latest Redbook magazine. Yes, I am sure she will sign autographs if you ask her. I might have squealed out loud when I saw her picture, my blog buddy, in the magazine. She deserves it and so much more.
If I could personally describe her style it would be classic, chic, feminine and BRILLIANT.
