How to Look Good in Mom-Shorts

Despite my past endeavor in trying knee-length shorts, I didn’t want it to be a one-time thing since I’m all about modesty or something. Here are three more looks with my mom-shorts:

I paired my gray shorts with my yellow striped top. I always thought gray and yellow looked great together. Then I added my blue sequin flats…because blue and yellow go together too. At the last minute, I threw on my pearl necklaces that you can’t see here but I really am wearing them.

That sweet husband of mine sure knows how to capture me at my prettiest. This is my favorite look of the three. The trick is to make sure the shirt is fitted to offset the loose shorts. I could have rolled up my sleeves but I thought with that and the shorts rolled up would make me look like I was on Gilligan’s Island. I added some black and gold to the mix to make it a classic look.

I wore this yesterday. I like teals and blues with gray hues. I also like yellow with teals/blues. And you know I had to add sequins in…

Tips
  • Try shorts with a looser fit and roll up the hems.
  • Wear fitted tops.
  • Make it feminine – I added necklaces and sequins. Make sure your necklaces complement the neckline of your top too. For instance, you don’t want to wear a choker necklace with a top with a low neckline. Or if you do, that’s cool.
  • Pair your shorts with complementary colors…especially if you don’t want the focus to be on your bottom half.

Back When…like Thursday

Warning:  I wore this on Thursday. I’ve just been like sooooo buzy I’m posting it now. I don’t know why this would be considered a warning. Now it’s just long and obnoxious.

I haven’t worn this skirt in a while because it has a bleached stain! a;dslkjfakldjf!!!! Chase and I tried to bleach it in a white bucket but it just turned the inside of the bucket pink. I might try again later… It’s been so hot lately. I need more lighter skirts.

Got this belt-over-scarf idea and this hair braid from a couple of my pins. I LOVE THAT SITE xINFINITY. If you’re Pinned too, let’s be friends.

Today is my sister’s birthday……. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMOOLY!!!!! I’ll mail your present out like next month.
