Coachella Shorts

Shorts: Urban Outfitters   Tanks: AE   Sandals: Just Fab  
Say hello to my newest obsession - these tribal print shorts! I welcomed these into my closet when Corina and I popped into an Urban Outfitters before we went to see Ellie Goulding (recap of that here if you're interested). When I spotted this crazy print peeking out of the sales racks, I ziplined over there to investigate. For $20, I couldn't say no. These will be getting worn on repeat throughout the summer!

With Coachella inspiration still in the air (at least, for me it is), I decided to double up on the tribal print with my bandeau from Pacsun along with a bright tank top and these embellished sandals. It may be a tad over the top, but I love it! Remember when I said my bohemian side comes out when the weather heats up? It's happening. We're hitting a consistent temperature of 70 degrees, and I can't soak up enough of it. 

I had a random girl's night over the weekend, and this new pal of mine is someone I agreed to be workout buddies with - little did I know just when she would call on me to fulfill that agreement! Haha, we went to see The Other Woman, and when we came back to chill at my apartment, she remembered she still had to do her squats for the squat challenge she was doing. I decided to join her so she'd have company, and this small act of friendship spawned into a full on workout. We ended up doing arms, abs, 1 o'clock in the morning...

The rest of the night (er, morning?) we lay on the couch, wincing everytime we had to move. Haha, so that's how my girl's nights go! This summer I'll probably be relying on her to push me again like that though...I get so lazy during the hot months. I'd much rather lounge around in the sun than work out in it.

What are some of your motivations for working out? Do any of you have a workout buddy?

Let all that you do be done in love.

Ooooh, those shorts are fun! I love the print on them! UrbanOutfitters has some seriously cool stuff and it's nice when you can snatch an awesome deal on their sale stuff. I think I've bought maybe one thing that wasn't on sale and that was quite a while ago... hahaha. And those shoes are so fun, too! Seriously, the heel and those studs? They were made for you. :)

lol I'm sure you know about my 10 mile a day biking habit. Sometimes I try to squeeze pilates in there, too. XD My motivation is just to continue fitting into the clothing I wear bahahaha I don't know if that counts much.

oh, that's a fierce backdrop! me like! creates this very cool effect! and your colourful summery outfit is fierce too, Linda. those wonderful pants and gorgeous sandals are the best and I want them to be in my wardrobe too, haha.
anyway, no workout buddy for me. I work out when I feel like it and that's all. no obligations or anything. working out has to be a nice thing to do :)

Hi Linda, you look festival chic perfect, these shorts are the height of Coachella fashion, they look amazing on you, love the hot pink with it and the back detail is uber sexy! Great sandals. Thanks for your opinion on my last post, hope you're having a great week so far.

Mica T said...

Such a nice bright outfit! The pink tank is great with the shorts :)

Hubby has promised to be my workout buddy when I need to get back into shape after baby - as I don't think my usual dog walking routine will cut it, haha! But for now I'm resting and just walking Cooper daily to get some mild exercise in as per doctor's orders :)

Those are some great shorts, babe, the print is insane! And I love your Pacsun top too. As for the work-out ... And the motivation for it ... Both of those things are pretty much lacking in my life.:) I have to move my ass ASAP though. Not exactly at 1 o'clock, but at some point.:)

Haha, all I could think of was this picture: I'm sorry! You do look great and there's nothing wrong with some colorful, tribal print!

Kim Alston said...

Linda, you wear tribal prints well. Not everybody can pull it off. You do it so effortlessly. Love that pink top with that print. Great shoes too! It's good to have a workout buddy. It helps keep you motivated. So good for making friends with her. You guys should come up with challenges. Workout in different places etc. That'll keep you going. Me? I just walk. LOL

Toks said...

Wow, working out at 1 a.m. that is really brave. I work out at the gym, in the evening after work. The shorts are super cute and I love the way you've paired them with the fucsia top.

1. I bet, in those shorts, you would be the envy of every girl who attende Coachella. Those shoes are sicknasty, too -- the whole outfit is rad, basically. I love all the layers, patterns and textures. :)

2. I actually prefer to work out on my own. I just finished taking a weightlighting class and it was great because I could pop in my earbuds, go down to the weight room, and do my own thing.

The closer it gets to summer the more motivated I get. XD Nah. Just kidding. My job actually requires me to be in a suit twice a week so that helps. Mostly I shot for being healthy and strong, which isn't just exercise -- it's diet and lifestyle. So they all roll into one.
