STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I’m actually wearing shorts. On the internet and for everyone to see.
If you didn’t already gather from that introduction, shorts are probably my least favorite article of clothing. I find them to be pretty darn unflattering most of the time. They’re either too short, made for a teenage girl at Coachella, or do that weird gaping thing at the waist. It’s like clothing designers don’t have the slightest idea how a woman’s body is actually shaped. I wasn’t blessed with a thigh gap and narrow hips – in fact, I have the opposite on both accounts so I despise the act of shorts shopping. Come summer, I’m all about the skirts and dresses.
BUT, these black shorts are a saving grace if you’ve shared in my struggle. I found them to be quite flattering and I love that they aren’t just another pair of basic denim shorts. I always find that I need bottoms in black and white during the summer because you can dress them up for a nice dinner or event with a pair of pumps. I don’t need to search for any other pair – one is enough! And they are only $38 but they feel like they could easily be over $100.
I paired these shorts with different tops today to create two looks because I wanted to show how versatile they are. I loved this floral cold shoulder top because… who doesn’t love the cold shoulder right now? I tucked it into the high waste to create that hourglass figure but you could totally leave it untucked over a pair of skinny jeans for a summer date night. The second look features the (also) trending off the shoulder. Love this white top so much and can see it being super versatile this summer!
If you haven’t noticed, I’m also loving the Kendra Scott French Riviera collection. Both looks feature the rose and gold combo pieces and I can foresee them making an appearance all summer long!
