Thrifty Outfit Post: Shorts Dressed up for Summer

So here is my first official spring post (in addition to the previous Earth Day post)! I'm not usually a wearer of shorts, but I was inspired to pick some up when I was at my local thrift store a little while ago. I absolutely love skirts and dresses, but there is just something so easy and relaxed about simple denim shorts (especially when they are punched up a notch with a fancy sweatshirt and pair of flats!) Note this is the outfit I previewed in the previous post. 
The shorts are simple "boyfriend" shorts from Old Navy, so they're a little looser and more relaxed looking- I think they go along nicely with this incredible lace floral sweatshirt and sparkly gold flats. As well, these sunglasses were an impulse buy. I have my classic Ray Ban wayfarers and aviators, and I have wanted a slightly cat-eyed frame for awhile- the lighter brown shade of these make them perfect for spring/summer! I think this outfit could work for a casual day where I want the comfort of shorts but still want to look a little more put together. And another great thing to love about this look- it's thrifted from head-to-toe!
Floral/lace sweatshirt: no brand, $6 thrifted (via National Jewish Women's Council thrift shop

So excited to start sharing all of my spring outfits! I'm a spring baby, so it's only natural! Remember to check out www.thechickgoescheap.com for more posts.
