So now that the warm weather in NYC has started to stick, it's time to get my gams ready. That means shaving my legs regularly (I'm the girl that puts that task on the back burner during winter...unless you know there's a hot date involved wink wink), exfoliating and using my daily self tanner/moisturizer. (I prefer Jergens Natural Glow.) But this also reminds me that I need to examine my drawer full of shorts, in which I realize I don't have a drawer FULL of shorts. I have a drawer of SOME shorts.
It's not that I don't like showing off my stems, it's just that I don't usually like most styles of shorts from the past seasons. But I did dig up my fave go-to pair of shorts that I practically lived in during last summer: my mom's vintage Levi cutoffs. They're so worn in and distressed; they're perfect. However I want to make these babies last forever, so I figured I better stock up on some substitutes.
For a while now I've been craving everthing baggy, so why not apply that to my shorts? I love the ultra baggy shorts MK is wearing in the pics above. (Probably ultra baggy because she's ultra tiny..hey I'll just have to fake it.) I absolutely cringe when I see girls in super short tight cutoffs, like bottom of the cheeks are beginning to creep out...ick! I love the way MK pairs her baggy shorts with a loose tee. It looks effortless plus will keep you cool when the hot months approach.
I'm loving these Current Elliot ones from Singer22. And also these from Forever21 at a fraction of the price. I think the key thing here is the distressed look and cuffed hem. Denim shorts, like jeans, are so versatile that they can be paired with practically anything. I'm kind of digging the idea of pairing insanely baggy shorts with a wife beater. White trash city yeah! Plus how great are these also from Forever21.
Can't wait to get my hands on some baggy shorts. I'm thinking I may even cut up a pair of my mom's old vintage Levi jeans that are big on me. That could work too. Whichever ones you prefer just remember Glamour Don't: No Exposed Butt Cheeks. Ugh I cringe at the thought.
xx smile baby.
