When I first put these shorts on, I was like “oh yeah, I’m keeping these babies” before I even looked in the mirror. They are hands-down the MOST comfortable item of clothing I’ve ever put on my body. (I mean, it didn’t hurt that they were under $40, too). So soft, so perfectly broken-in . . . long enough to wear without feeling like everything is hanging out . . . it almost didn’t even matter what they looked like. Almost.
The problem I have when I buy longer shorts is that they typically make me look wider than I am. Because I have to buy them large enough to fit my butt, the legs kind of stick out straight and make my thighs look bigger (where my big booty girls at – I know you know what I’m talking about!). So I just had to figure out how to make them flattering. The solution? A simple roll at the bottom gave them a bit more shape and voila – I found my new favorite pair of shorts.
I’ve been wearing this jacket on repeat lately . . . I love the moto details, longer length and the super soft material. It’s lightweight and perfect for layering throughout the spring and summer. Oh and these shoes?? LOVE. The color, the comfiness . . . I will be wearing these babies with everything from denim (obviously) to sundresses this summer.
American Eagle Bermudas (I’m wearing a size 8, but they’re pretty slouchy – a 6 would probably work as well) **The distressed shorts are still available in 00-4 but the same cut is fully stocked in a darker color without distressing.
Caslon Jacket (Also in olive green and in regular or petite sizes – I’m wearing an xs regular because I like the longer length)
