Confession: I’m not much of a shorts wearer, like at all. I guess it’s not really a secret because I mention it EVERY Summer when shorts season is no longer avoidable. It’s not that I don’t want to wear shorts…I’m just super self conscious of my legs, and my curvier body type makes it difficult to find truly comfortable shorts that don’t ride up or give my thighs rug-burn. The only shorts I’ve absolutely loved were a pair of old, already worn-in Levis that I cut up myself. Usually in the summer, you’ll find me in a skirt or dress.
I think I’ve found a pair that I’m willing to wear: they’re high waisted and NOT booty shorts.
tee – J.Crew Salut! Tee, $32.50. My favorite graphic tee of all time. Seriously. The quality is fantastic, it’s lightweight and comfortable and well, blue is my favorite.
paperbag shorts – BDG High Waist Paperbag Shorts from Urban Outfitters, $49.00. These are the shorts that made me back into a shorts believer. I can’t get over how comfy they are. They have the perfect amount of stretch in them. Plus, I’m always all over the place and they keep their shape so well with minimal wrinkles. They also come in dark green.
wedges – Dolce Vita Wedge Lace Sandals at DSW, $89.95 I’m super happy with these Dolce Vita wedges. They are very comfortable and it barely feels like I’m wearing a heel at all.
