How to Style Shorts

How to Style Shorts



Tank (old, similar, love this one, too)
Bow Hat c/o// Red Tote c/o
Shop the Look:

I believe this is my last post from my Caribbean vacation! It's a bit bittersweet because I would like to be vacationing in the Caribbean every day, wouldn't you?!

 I wore this outfit on one of the 'at sea' days. Just a casual, easy outfit, but still 'nice' enough to walk around the ship. I cannot tell you how invaluable this hat and bag were. I wore this hat almost all the time I was outside to keep the sun out of my face (#terrifiedofwrinkles). And this tote was perfect for carrying along my big DSLR camera! 

I kind of loathe shorts. My legs are my least favorite part of my body. Even though I'm a decent height (5'6") my legs are short. I've never really had 'thin' legs, and it's always something I am aware of when it comes to what I wear. With that said, I find shorts to be the least flattering on me. But I feel like these shorts are a great way to wear shorts without actually feeling self-conscious. The structure is dressier and more lady-like so you don't feel so casual. I also find the higher waist slimming and actually all-around more comfortable. I also love the dark color- another way to seem dressier and more figure flattering! 

And as much as I would like to be vacationing 24/7, I really do think that it's important to live your life with a series of contrasts and I think it's even more important to realize that. A vacation wouldn't be half as fun if you were doing it all the time. It wouldn't be half as treasured if it was commonplace. 

You can't have good without bad and vice-versa and I think that's something that everyone needs to be reminded of from time to time. This week was less than stellar- and I really shouldn't be complaining, I try to keep that to a minimum around here!! It's just a reminder that it's not always going to be sunshine and roses and that's quite ok!
