a lace shorts and summer dress day

We did some mad yard-sale-ing this weekend.

Here's a floral, short romper-like dress I found for 3.00.
I'm wearing it today with these lace slipshorts from Walmart, and feeling kinda early 90's.

I like these shorts because of the lace, but my favorite slipshorts are the ones below from Walmart. They are great to wear with short summer dresses, and are made just for that purpose.

This is the first time I've seen them there, can't find them online, are they're already sold out at our Walmart.
If you can find them at your Walmart, good job.

Shapewear shorts work too, but are less comfortable.

Shapewear is tight, and if I'm wearing a summer dress, I don't want to sweat.  I want to be summery..twirling, with my arms up high like that lady in the blue dress.
The flip flops were new, found at the same yard sale. They were 5.00.

The lady said they are expensive, and the name is Yellow Box.

I don't know about that, but they are very comfortable, and will be fantastic for ditching sneakers and walking the boardwalk.

And yellow sounds like summer...
even though they are black.
