Shorts for my Birthday

Shorts for Work

Here we go with a few shorts-themed posts. This is a casual day look that’s light and breezy and follows all my shorts requirements, being the mature 32 year-old lady that I am. These were found on my recent trip to Last Call, and are perfect for day because they are a lovely neutral color, and have a loose flare to them (which as I have mentioned before, balances out the shortness for me). They may also have wrinkles. I prefer to think of them as creases. Linen blouse, linen-y shorts? Espadrille wedges? Age-appropriate? Comfortable AND classy? I could go on, but I have presents to open.

  1. Too cute! That little bit of ‘flare’ in Summer shorts really does make such a huge difference, for me too. Lookin’ long and lean and lovely! Happy Birthday!! x

  2. First off, I think I’ve said this before on your last shorts post, but you can just pretend to be in your 20s a little while longer. I still wouldn’t think you’re in your 30s:) My friends have a theory that as we age we aren’t really “aging” due to all the preservatives in food products! haha!! We were drinking when we came to our theory but I think it has merit;) hehe…Anyways, I love the way you’re rocking those shorts with the wedges. Happy Birthday Too!!!

    Your Corso Como espadrilles are gorgeous, and those red sunnies make me smile. Shorts can be tricky waters to navigate, but you’ve found a great, flattering pair.
    Happy Birthday!!
