Today's Everyday Fashion: Printed Shorts

I loved printed shorts last summer and this summer I think I love them even more! I prefer to pair a slim fitting bottom like skinny jeans or today's shorts with a much looser top, so I'm showing you two versions. One is neutral and slightly more dressed up with a lilac lace top (see it with a pencil skirt here), and the amped up version is paired with a neon tee and colorful sandals. I would wear both for errands on a casual day when the temperature is hot. Would you wear printed shorts?
