This is my ABSOLUTE favorite, girly-girl treasure of the summer. I am loving this high side slit maxi or tunic with shorts peeking out, and a LOT of leg screaming out. LOL
I have to admit, the top is hard to find, kind of. I did a lot of searching all over the web, and Brynn found it on some “ship from China,” website. The best part, the top was about ten bucks. So, I did some more investigating, and found similar, here: https://carousell.com/p/25210321/ - You can search high side slit maxi or high side slit tunic” and a zillion shots will come up.
The shorts were a piece of cake, (SouthMoonUnder) or from Blank NYC, depending on who has the better price. Blank NYC is usually pretty consistent with discounts if you Google. NEVER buy anything online without searching for a promo code or coupon. Even if they aren’t advertised, 95% of the time, there is something to be had, even if it’s 10 or 15%, which, if the option is retail, it’s better than nothing.
You can pair this with a bootie like this one from Steve Madden or this more strappy version with studs. Usually, the theory is to do a nude shoe to elongate your leg if you have other colors going on, rather than chopping it up, black, denim and black. But here, since the short is so short and the top is long, I felt the black shoe looked the best.
The neckline lends itself beautifully to my favorite, of course, a choker. Cotton and denim have longevity from season to season. Once that really crappy season of fall hits, you can pair the same top with a skinny jean and bootie, with a long cardigan for that forget me not summer look that you can rake leaves in.
