Beetle Juice

Shirt: Kohls/ Shorts: Lucky Brand via T.J. Maxx/ Sandals: Rue21/ Earrings: OldNavy/ Belt: Target/ Bracelet: Charlotte Russe/ Sunglasses: Gianni Bini 

This past weekend I attended the African American Culture Festival in downtown Raleigh and this is what I wore. When I met my friends downtown, one of them looked at me and the first thing she said was, "You look like Beetle Juice." If you know who/what Beetle Juice is, you would understand why I gave her a salty glare in response.

Despite being told that I looked like a zombie, I think this look was a hit, and perfect for the transitioning weather.Plus these shorts were on clearance for only $3! The inspiration for this outfit came as I was scrolling through my Pinterest boards and came across a neon green monochromatic outfit pinned beside a pair of black and white stripped pants. I instantly thought of these shorts and shirt and paired the two together!

This is a simple look that I would wear again with flats or heels. Pairing shorts with a button down is also an easy way to make daisy dukes a little less risque.


  1. I don't think you look like Beetlejuice! I love this outfit! Those shorts are awesome!

  2., friend! Robin Thicke looked like Beetlejuice at the VMAs. Your outfit is cute! I've only worn shorts once this summer, and now that the weather is starting to cool (and my growing baby bump has made all my clothes too small), I regret it. I love the way you paired yours with the button down and the pop of color in your belt.

  3. I don't understand the Beetle Juice reference, but I think you look cute! The striped top is really fun!
