ok, lets get to it and talk about shorts. like or loathe?
people are passionate about the non-pants pants. did any of you used to watch what not to wear? the british version, and best version, that is? with trinny and susannah. those ladies were serisouly against shorts and i think it there style tips may have sorted my stance on shorts several years ago.
but, what about you? if you loathe do you still wear them? i know some people have totally given up on shorts, all together. compeltely against them. done and finished. i’m feeling like one of those people (at least this year). i have shorts, and i wear them around the house or by the pool, but other than that i kind of avoid them like the plague. i’m sure if my legs were longer, leaner and could catch a tan, than i might have a different opinion on the matter of shorts.
then there is fit. i used to wear those bermuda length shorts because they covered up a bit more, but then found that with my shorter build that wasn’t doing me any favors. so, i tossed out all my old navy long lady shorts and stocked up on the shorter j. crew kind (the 5″ chinos are my fave + a great length). this year, i’d really like to find a loose fitting distressed denim (not too short).

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