June 22, 2012 in Glam: Style & Trends
At last, summer seems to finally be in full swing. I live for the exciting vacation festivities, but truly cherish the slower evenings of family card playing and eating warm baked apple pie, while the curtains flutter from the salty breeze. To me, that is a true vacation. Despite my tapping away at the keyboard to post, cellphone’s aren’t the first thing that we check every morning, weekly programming is deemed useless, and morning alarms are set on a permanent snooze.
Redefining women’s denim, these floral cutoff shorties are the go-to trend to combat your outfit blahs. These shorts are the perfect companion to your favorite white tee.
At first, I was tempted to pair it with a structured denim button-up, sleeves casually rolled (my summer go-to)…but, decided to try a different aesthetic to mix-it up. The light blue, floral print on these American Eagle shorties are quieter and more feminine than their loud and colorful sisters. Their frayed edge gives them a vintage and authentic feel – almost as if it is okay to get them a bit beaten-up, normally a “don’t” in conventional white bottoms.
How would you rock this new summer trend? A structured boy’s white collared shirt? Or, perhaps strutting the boardwalk on your own summer vacation? One thing’s for sure, I wish I could sport these shorts everyday if it meant that vacation would never end.
