My life is really just made up of an endless exploration for my next pair of shoes. And for the last two years, I have been on the hunt for the perfect boot. I promise you I have tried them all. There was even a time when I was almost desperate enough to buy myself a ridiculously expensive pair of Fryes, but those didn’t even make the cut. Well, now that I have found the perfect boot, I’m not really sure what to do with myself. I’ll be staring at the computer screen with my favorite shoe site pulled up and then realize I have nothing to look for. I have everything I need. I’ve met the one, and my search is done. Maybe I should start crocheting more now that I have all this free time..

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.

Exit Glamour!

My skants are back! That’s officially my new favorite word thanks to Cat. I fixed the button but it just means I have to starve myself all day to wear these. And that’s never going to happen. Not when chocolate chip cookies exist.

I love the idea of tying button-ups at the bottom thanks to Jenni! This outfit made me feel old (like classic-old, not like grandma-old – actually, I can see it now..) and glamorous…like Katharine Hepburn, which is weird because I’ve never seen any of her movies. But I did see The Aviator. Does that count?

I’m wearing a Gap shirt ($12), vintage culottes ($6), JCPenney pumps (free), and a vintage bag ($15) with vintage earrings that you can’t see ($1).
