wear / shorts
May 28, 2014

 

i’m dying over this romper from anthro, because i bought, pretty much, this exact outfit from a swap meet in california when i was in 8th grade.  actually, as i’m so clearly remembering i also came home with the coolest pair of ripped denim shorts ever, that were a little over the top for illinois and grown ups at the time. and while, we are talking 8th grade – these are cool + remind me of my umbro’s – remember wearing those?  let’s just keep going shall we?  i love these – but hey – why don’t they call them what they really are?  skorts!  lets all just dress like it’s 1990 this summer!  here are a few of my fave picks :

 


 

 

while, i’ll keep a few pairs of shorts for around the house and have tos (like when it’s sweltering), i prefer skirts and cute sundresses, like this this striped dress .

madewell always has my fave dresses.  this leopard shift dress its tops on my wishlist.

tell me about your summer wardrobe.  do you wear shorts + what brand / style works for you?

I’ve never given shorts too much thought, then I turned 30 and whammo! As the warmer weather crept nearer I fretted, am I too old for shorts?? I even asked my boyfriend to tell me as soon as he thought I no longer had any business in shorts (a dangerous request I’m sure he’ll never see through!).

I have decided that I am still OK with shorts, as long as you’re comfortable in them – whether they’re short, denim, linen, baggy – then they’re OK with me. Personally I like tailored high waisted shorts, I am a shorty and want to give the illusion of height!

I much prefer skirts and dresses too, but I have been known to wear shorts if they’re cute. I had a certain seersucker pair with tiny lobsters that I will definitely break out a few times this summer, but that’s probably it!

I’m laughing so hard at this right now! I feel the same way about shorts (even the loose distressed denim ones I’m wearing at the moment) — whenever I wear them out of the house, I catch a glimpse somewhere and am like “What am I wearing!?” I prefer dresses for summer but have had such problems finding ones I like this year!

Ah this one hit home. The secret is my friends… how you wear them. Riding so high your voice squeaks is never good..at any age. A pair of denim cutoffs with a classy BoHo top or vest and you are safe and stylish. x
