Pay attention very closely to the above picture. The above is something you’ve never seen before on this blog – me wearing shorts. This may not seem like such a big deal, but to me it is. Like every woman, there are certain things about my body I’d like to change and things that I’m uncomfortable with. For the past few years I’ve rarely worn shorts at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love shorts, especially distressed denim cut offs, but for whatever reason, lately I’ve feel quite self conscious wearing them.
But, with the last days of summer quickly coming upon us, I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone and tackle my self consciousness head on, and so….I went for it!
outfit details: blazer – elle (via kohl’s – SIMILAR), top – nasty gal ( last seen HERE , similar style), shorts – diy from old pair of boyfriend jeans, necklace – the limited, ring – the limited, shoes – nine west, sunglasses – steve madden (lusting over THESE)
I’ve been obsessed with distressed denim cut offs trend lately and have wanted to partake in the trend all summer, but I had yet to get the confidence up to try it out. I especially love this trend paired with a tailored blazer! Something about the juxtaposition of such a tailored modern piece paired with such a casual and edgy piece that is just right up my alley. So my friends, here is my first fair-weathered attempt at rocking this trend and stepping out of my “fashion comfort zone” so to speak. What do you think?
Would you wear this trend? How would you style it?
