Blouse: Urban Outfitters (I think)
Shorts: DL 1961
TWO warm days in a row...in CHICAGO?!? This is unheard of, and boy has it been great for my mood.
Enter: SHORTS! I realized earlier this week that I only owned one pair of shorts. I thought about why on earth this would be the case, and came to an odd conclusion...I really don't like shorts! I guess shorts feel too predictable for me, too vanilla, too casual.
So then, why did I put on shorts today? Turns out, I was just thinking about shorts the wrong way. I could never style my shorts in a way that I liked, and I thought it was a function of the shorts as such. What I realized instead, was that I just didn't have the right attitude towards shorts. Introducing: these new beauties. The problem was that I was treating shorts as a "new" piece of clothing, rather than just short versions of the denim uniform I wear every single day. When I began to look at it that way, it made sense! I just wear the same outfit I would wear with my long jeans, and pair it with my short denim instead! Problem solved.
So now, I have two pairs of shorts : both denim. I'm still not obsessed with shorts, so I think my shorts collection will stop there. But today I'm wearing shorts and I feel PERFECTLY MYSELF in them. Which is pretty great.
How do you guys feel about shorts? Do you have a particular way you like to style yours?
