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.

Fashion Hit List: Denim Cut Offs

Cut off shorts. They are every where you turn this summer and I’m obsessed! I’ve recently been sharing some of my fashion obsessions with you lately, and this particular trend is one of my favorites. They are statement-making, comfortable, incredibly versatile and easy to style. Pair them with a modern blazer, blouse and strappy sandals or dress them down with a great graphic tee and pair of sunglasses.  They are and I see them definitely being an essential summer staple for summer for many seasons to come.

I honestly don’t know why I’ve waited so long to take part in this particular trend. There are options for all body types – as a curvy girl, I in particular like the boyfriend denim cut offs. Expect them to be making a debut on the blog in many future outfit posts soon.

What do you think of this trend? How would you style them?

Outfit Details:  top – target (old – similar),  jeans – old navy, wedges – kohl’s (I’ve got my eye on these), bracelets –  forever 21 (these still bring the bling), ring – macy’s , necklace –  kohl’s, sunglasses –  asos , lipstick – revlon “kiss me coral” , nails – essie “bikini so teeny”

 

In case it isn’t evident from the above pictures, it was just a bit…um….windy the day these pictures were taken. Maybe I should have named this post “Easy, Breezy and Craaaazy Hair“. Anyways…

I’m currently in a state of just wanting to dress comfortably. Maybe it’s the heat, but regardless, when moods like this strike, jeans, wedges and a cool tee or breezy top are my “summer uniform” Yes, I did say jeans during the summer, but hey, what can I say? I love me a good pair of jeans (f course the summer temps do make me wear a more of capri or boyfriend jean)! However, no matter how casual of a “dressing mood” I’m in, I always try to add a little bit of bling.   😉

What’s your “summer uniform”?

Fashion Hit List: Mirrored Sunglasses

sunglasses – old navy (similar at an AWESOME price! )

 

If you asked me to name one accessory that I am absolutely OBSESSED with for the summer, it definitely is reflector or “mirrored” sunglasses.  They make such an awesome statement and so easily added a great added punch or “pizazz” to even the simplest of outfits! I hope to be adding a few more pairs to my collection!
