Short and Sweet

This post is weird for me. I went into this outfit shoot with Agnes knowing I’d hate 99% of the photos because I’m not the biggest fan of my legs. Having struggled with eating and body-image issues more-or-less my entire life, I try to be kind to myself about my body, but sometimes I fail big time.

I seriously considered changing outfits before we met up, but I forced myself to wear shorts in an outfit post to try to get over my insecurities and because I’ve been living in shorts on the weekends at the beach. I’d love to say I totally owned the shoot and loved my legs in all the photos, but that would be a blatant lie.

It was hard for me to sort through the photos and come thigh-to-face with my legs. Anyways, I don’t want to force you to listen to me body-shame myself for an entire post, so instead I’ll leave you with a few of the photos I liked most.

Let’s end this post on a high note. I am so excited that I finally purchased a pair of white Converse. I have this same pair in light grey, and I love them, but they don’t go with everything. When I was in Copenhagen and Amsterdam, everyone and their mother was wearing a pair of these and I scooted to Nordstrom Rack as soon as I got back to pick up a pair of my own. Best purchase all summer!

Spring Shorts You’ll Love

It’s finally the time of year when it’s warm enough to put away the pants and break out the shorts. However, I only have jean shorts and think it’s time to switch to something different. Here are a few ways to change up your shorts this spring.

Pastel is definitely in this season and has been seen everywhere. Pastel shorts are a nice alternative to jeans shorts, as they’re a bit dressier. J. Crew’s 3” Chino Shortis the perfect pair for any occasion. This style comes in a variety of colors, including colors like peach and daiquiri ice which is a mint color.

Urban Outfitters has a lot of great alternatives to typical blue denim shorts. I personally love the BDG Sailor Short, which comes in colors like yellow and mint. These shorts have simple buttons on the front that dress them up. At Urban Outfitters you can also find the Pins and Needles Lace Tap Short, which comes in black and cream.

If you love your jean shorts and aren’t willing to give them up entirely, try colored denim or a pair or shorts with some embellishment. These Forever 21 colored shorts come in colors like pink, turquoise and yellow and can brighten up any outfit. ZARA’s studded white denim shortsare a great way to change up your typical jean shorts.

Will you be trading in your blue denim shorts for something different this spring?

Fab Finds: Summer Shorts

Shorts don’t always seem to be a women’s first choice in bottoms, but this year the runways prepared us for shorts. Shorts are great, because they can be worn to the beach with flip flops or to a graduation party with heels. Wherever you are going this summer, you will find a pair of shorts to suit you.

Not looking forward to showing some leg? There are shorts for all body types. Bermuda style shorts with a heel tend to elongate your leg, short shorts show off your long legs and fuller shorts with cuffs conceal thighs. So, whatever your leg type is, go out on a limb this year and try a pair of shorts.

With summer in full swing, the heat can really get to you. And while some days you might feel like wearing nothing would keep you the coolest, that’s not exactly socially acceptable.  So instead of getting written up for indecent exposure, pull on some cute shorts and have everyone staring at you for all the right reasons.
