Gingham Short-Shorts





Happy new month friends; welcome to the month of September. So, short, shorts have been trending for a while now and I really did not care for it and to tell you the truth, I thought it was a little juvenile to wear short shorts and being in my thirties, I did not think I had any business wearing short shorts until I went to Loft in the middle of the summer and saw this gingham print shorts. I fell in love with it right away but felt very sad when I found out that they were short shorts. I searched through the racks just hoping there would be one with a longer hem but there was no luck so I just left disappointed but I never kept thinking of the shorts.

Usually, when I see an item of clothing that I like but cannot buy right away, my prayer is usually that the item should go on sale but this time my prayer was that the shorts should go longer or that a "Bermuda-version" type should be released by the manufacturer because I love Bermuda shorts. Well,  the shorts did go on sale but the hem remained the same. I went in to the dentist a couple of weeks ago with the kiddos for their bi-annual cleaning and check-up and it just happens that there is a Loft store right across the street from our dentist. Well, I did go into the store after the appointment and here we are..:-).





Shorts: Loft
Tank top: Walmart
Jacket: Banana Republic
Sandals: Kelsi by Kelsi Dagger via DSW
Necklace: Express










I did find out that adding a blazer over this short shorts and dressing it up kind of elevates the look and gives it a more matured look rather than juvenile. I also decided to put on minimal jewelry just to tone down the look. This outfit would go on so many dinner dates with the hubby, I tell you and my hubby approved of it right away when he saw the look.
Would you dress up short, shorts like this even if they are denim short shorts?

  5. Dear Beauty, how good you finally discovered shorts for you as you look great in them! The gingham shorts you discovered are a very beautiful piece and I like it how you combined them. Personally I love it to wear shorts and I spend each possible moment in shorts ;) Even at the moment (although it is cold outside and we came just back from our daily walk) I'm still wearing shorts :)
    Happy weekend!
