SUMMER SERIES:: JEAN SHORTS

9 Jul

 
I recently put together the ‘Lookbook‘ page on the blog and realized that I have only posted TWELVE outfits since my first outfit post a year ago. What a failure! A travesty! An average of only one outfit a month. That’s a rubbish effort if you ask me. So in an effort to boost the number of outfits I share I decided to start a new series featuring the ultimate summer staple: the denim short. Classic. Effortless. Indispensable. Jean shorts have been around since the dawn of time it seems, or at least since I first saw the movie Now and Then with Christina Ricci in her cool tomboy plaid shirt, and Thora Birch with her jello bra – and decided I wanted to be them. Since then I’ve been through a plethora of shorts, from the itsy bitsy to the teensy weensy (hello high school), and now I think I’ve finally found a pair that’s juuust right. Naturally I’ve been living in them – I think the secret is I sized UP two sizes, for that Alexander Wang slouch. I wore it here with my Taylor Tomasi-inspired blazer, also worn here.

TOP ZARA / BLAZER VINTAGE (similar) / SHORTS ZARA / SANDALS ZARA 2011 (similar) / BAG ROMWE / WATCH MICHAEL KORS / RING AMRITA SINGH
Stay tuned to see how I wear these shorts (almost every day) in my new summer series!

    I looooved Now & Then! I must have seen that movie a hundred times, lol. Classic. And love this look, and your hair! I'm thinking about starting to post outfit pics too, but I'm still a little camera shy. (I think there are a total of 2 photos of my since I really started blogging again in May. lol)

    Looks great! I've been wondering what to do with my old denim shorts… You've inspired me for next summer xx

    Me too I feel like watching it again now! I'm totally awkward in front of the camera, just take 100 pics and choose the best 3 🙂

    Thanks Nancy. I used a lot more than usual, I guess I should stick with it!

    The tip about sizing up is a good one! I've been looking for slouchy shorts, but perhaps I just need to try different sizes. 🙂 The blazer with shorts look is on my list of looks to try this summer. 🙂
