Show Some Leg!

Let's talk SHORTS. I don't post a lot about "fashion" per se because I'm far from fashionable, but if there's one thing I love, it's a good pair of shorts! Not sure how you feel about them? Well, I've put together a little collection of my favorites and there's something here for everyone!

PATTERNED: This first pair is actually a DIY! Take a look at how to make your own! Aren't the floral pairs awesome? They're so 90's.

 DRESSY: It's hard to pair boots and shorts with class, but the girl in this first photo definitely pulled it off. Small details like the tiny scalloped edge on the second pair can make a huge difference.

JEAN SHORTS (LONG): Long jean shorts can be tricky. Here are a few ways to add a sometimes much needed feminine touch. The first and second photos both show a great way to dress these shorts up using tailored jackets. The woman in the bottom photo used accessories such as bracelets and rings to add a feminine feel.

 JEAN SHORTS (SHORT): On the other side of the spectrum, we have short jean shorts. There's no need to worry about making these feminine, but a few accessories never hurt. I love the brown belt with the ripped shorts in the first photo and the headband in the second.

KNIT: I honestly had never considered knit shorts until I started doing some research for this post but I LOVE this idea. They look so comfortable. Notice how both pairs of shorts are paired with a leather accessory. This makes them appear less like something you should just be wearing around the house. The clutch in the first photo reminds me of the one I just found at an estate sale and I love the belt in the second photo.

LACE: I can't get enough of these lace shorts! They are definitely on my "to make" list. One of each color (white and black) would be great!

SEQUINED: Ahhh yes, I saved the best for last. How awesome are these sequined shorts? They are incredibly versatile. Dress them up with a sheer blouse and accessories like the first photo, wear them with a vintage t-shirt like the second photo, or pair them with a pattern like the third photo.
