Dazed & Confused – Coral Scalloped Shorts

posted on: Tuesday, May 16, 2017

These coral scalloped shorts are the perfect mix of colour & comfort to hang onto the last of those lingering warm days.

Goodbye summer.  Goodbye hanging out at the beach every day. Goodbye social life.


& hello to colder weather, assignments & having no social life. Who am I kidding? I had none to begin with but I really am drowning in a pile of assignments once again. This is a cry for help, incase there’s anyone out there who wants to finish my degree for me.


Using these Desert Daze shorts as an excuse to run around outside & pretend it’s still summer while the weather is still moderately warm. They are seriously comfortable with the wide waistband & high-rise style & they’re the perfect shorts for me to do a plethora of activities in, from running though fields trying to hug alpacas (literally), to lying on my bed & crying about how I always leave assignments until the last couple of days.


They also go with pretty much everything & I really wish I had gotten them during the summer because I can totally see me wearing them every day on the beach instead of at my desk.


When will I ever learn?

  • You look very fit, Shannon and I had no idea that you have a son. How old is he if you don’t mind me asking? Love that shorts on you, I have something similar but struggle to wear it as I have no idea how to style it.

    • Thanks, Shireen! I love these types of short because they’re so easy for me to style! But maybe it’s because I have a very lazy style haha
      & my son is 7, turning 8 this year 🙂 x

  • This shorts are really cute! I also like the mood of your pictures a lot! Oh you are having cold months soon, in Austria we are waiting for summer to arrive. 🙂 Wishing you luck with learning! xoxo

    You are so naturally beautiful……It doesn’t look like summer over is just yet? So tan and such a cute tank and shorts? Surely there is something to look forward to down under 🙂 I wish you the best of luck on your assignments and look forward to reading more posts!

    • Oh Kell! If only you could know just how much can be deceiving over here, down under! It’s sunny, but FREEZING! But then again, it’s probably hot to you because you guys get snow in NY! Haha Thanks for the luck! Missing you x

  • Those shorts are so cute. They look so lovely and at first glance look like a skirt. You look great!


  • You look gorgeous! Love the shorts!

    Summer just started for us. Hope you can get a break from assignments this weekend. These shorts are so cute. Love the color.

  • Love the mood of these photos! They feel so editorial and I can’t believe your son is taking your photos! He is doing such a great job!! Wishing you a great day! xx


    • Thanks, Andreea! He will be thrilled to hear that! 🙂 x

  • Ah, the fit of these shorts is so flattering and cool; you’re kind of reminding me of every. single. good. Australian. film. I’ve ever watched, haha. I hope the colder weather surprises you and brings you all kinds of social fun; though it’s also a pretty good excuse to curl up inside and enjoy your own company with films and food, right?! 🙂

    • Curling up inside with some food is definitely my type of social fun, Gabs! & I’ll take the Australian films comment as a compliment! I’ve always wondered how they get that oddly nostalgic look to them! Hope you’re getting some great sunshine over there! x

  • I like this simple casual look. It’s so feminine and chic in the same time 🙂

  • The shorts are gorgeous, I love the feminine scalloped detail and the coral colour – perfect for summer holidays! I only wish I had your legs to pull off myself. Stunning pictures, thanks for sharing.

  • Your shorts are so cute! 🙂

  • Lovely photos! Your shorts are so cute! 🙂 xx


  • once again your photos look editorial-worthy! And I didn’t realise your son took your photos, what a talented little one! your hair looks fantastic too. Wishing you all the best with your assessments as well. It’s nice to see your face again! have so much catching up to do on your blog! 🙂


  • Oh these are beautiful printed shorts! 🙂

    I’m doing something similar – although I haven’t bought any new shorts as I’m doing 6 months without shopping, I have been realising I didn’t wear my cute printed shorts nearly enough over summer. Seems to be too cold in Queensland to get them out again now, but maybe next week will be warmer after that big cold and wet weather is disappearing. Plus, running around after two toddlers is always good to keep you warm anyway, haha!

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend 🙂 Good luck with your assignments! Assignments are so boring, it’s easy to procrastinate and put them off!

  • We are hoping for warmer days and for summer to arrive here in London 🙂 Your outfit looks gorgeous – beautiful photos! Have a great weekend!

  • We are about to start summer, so I will see if I can hunt something like this down. A little longer maybe, my legs arent as pretty as yours, but I adore the color and the scallop details.

  • Beautiful photos, and I’m loving the outfit! Those shorts are so cute!


  • It’s funny reading about how it’s the end of summer in Australia, when it hasn’t even started in Europe. When I think about it, it feels so foreign to me! But your summer must have been worth ten times ours. These shorts are lovely, the colour is really pretty and the scalloped edges add cuteness to them. Good luck with your assignments!

    • It’s such a normal thing (that seasons are different across the world) but it’s a concept I still find hard to wrap my mind around! That you could just take a plane to the other side of the world & get some warm sunshine or some white snow! x

  • It’s getting colder in Australia, isn’t it? Bangkok is just hot, and rain errrrrday lol I don’t know what’s wrong with the weather nowadays. Anyway, you look very cute ka 🙂


  • Holly

    I really love these shorts, the colour and embroidery is so pretty! These photos are gorgeous too x


  • Ahh I miss the summer. The colder weather in Adelaide is making me so lazy. Love your photos by the way!


  • Lovely outfit! Perfect for Summer!

  • Rina Doria

    We totally have our seasons in reverse! I’m hoping to say hello to shorts and beach hopefully soon. The weather has been so bad here, it’s been really hard to even dress for Spring! I’m still wearing a lot of my winter clothes. I love the scalloped trim on your shorts and how vibrant the colour is, super cute outfit!

  • The location is stunning and lovely lovely outfit.

  • Yo, fit woman, you look so mesmerizing dancing in the wild field there. Why is there no social life during the cold months in Australia? You are so cute, hahaha. We all know your level of energy rise to the maximum when you do your assignments last minute, Shannon. Some people are built this way. Some like me, will most likely lose hair, sleep and had to repeat the whole semester or worse, quit! I love those shorts, bee tee dubs. So comfy and that tank top has the neckline I like! Definitely would steal this whole wardrobe from you. <3 xoxo

    • Haha you know me too well. There’s no incentive (in my head anyway) for starting early. Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise? x

  • Those shorts are fantastic! What a simple way to jazz up a look. At least you’ll have them for next Summer!


  • WOW this look is so gorgeous on you 😀 The shorts look so pretty! Fab blog xox
