I've been talking about transitioning away from short shorts for what seems like forever... and now I can finally back up all my talk. White was my color of choice (because owning white skirts and white pants apparently aren't enough). I went with the 4" inseam and think that might be the longest I'll wear for now... until I hit my mid-life crisis. I'm thinking a 3" inseam could also work and will be keeping my eyes out to replace my navy colored short shorts.

  1. I have to wear short shorts because I have super short legs. *sigh*
    But you have super long slender legs so you can pull off the longer shorts nicely! I love the scarf and the chanel bag with this outfit! It's a nice pop of color with the neutrals.

  2. Love this! The shorts and sandals and sweater go great together. Cute summer neutrals!

  3. Love that you matched a scarf with shorts! Most of my scarves are winter scarves, I need to add more silk and lightweight scarves to my collection. Any brand recommendations? :)

    reaches the sky

    1. J.Crew Factory has a bunch of lightweight scarves at a discount right now, in bright colors and colorful patterns. I'd also check out Gap, Old Navy, and Zara. Good luck!

    2. Just want to add, Zara Girl (along with other kid-friendly stores) have a great selection of lightweight scarves for cheaper too!

  4. Gah I still can't get on the shorts thing. I still have only one pair I think that I will wear "out". I usually only wear them when on vacation and somewhere like a theme park where a dress or skirt probably wouldn't be appropriate :P

    Shorts look amazing on you!

    1. Haha Elaine! I bet this is one of those "we're our own worst critics." Can I request a shorts outfit? I promise to give you my honest opinion :)

  5. I think you look great in both short and longer shorts. :) I am loving your scarf and purse combo! Have a nice weekend!


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
