A Denim Story

Shorts: Hidden Jeans; Trench: Aeryne; Necklaces: Lavenda for Ann Revere; Boots: Alexander Wang; Sunglasses: Miu Miu

I have a very strange love-hate relationship with denim shorts. I’ve always loved the idea of them. Believe me, whenever I see my friends and/or other bloggers rocking them, I muster up the courage to wear them. However, I always feel like I run the risk of looking slightly hooker-y in them on account of my, to quote Sir Mix A Lot, ‘juicy double’.

However, this summer, thanks to the reign of the kimono, I seem to have found a solution. I threw on this Aeryne trench/dress to finish off this look, and voila, no chance of accidentally flashing someone! Also a tip for my hourglass figured friends: pair your denim shorts with a boyfriend tee. The loose fit nicely juxtaposes the tighter fit of the denim shorts.

Moral of the story: you should always dress for your body, but it’s possible to manipulate trends to make them work for you.

    Ahhh I love it! I always have the same problem with denim short – on me, I feel as though they look more hooker than high-fashion. Definitely going to try pairing them with a trench!

    I feel the same way! I can never find a pair I like though it seems like everyone else looks amazing in them. Love these on you with the fun embroidery.

    Lol at juicy double! Girl, I know exactly what you’re talking about, I’ve had the same struggle! Kimonos and dusters are such great ways to add more coverage, while keeping cool and looking chic. Thanks for sharing, girl, and I hope you’re having a very Happy Monday!

    lady, you styled these perfectly! They look great on you. Love the nail colour – and its matchy-ness to the embroidered rose on your short 😉

    I’m all about dressing for your body type and what makes you comfortable. Fun to see you outside your comfort zone with denim shorts. And the kimono is a great way to tie it all together for a pop of color.

    You look great in denim shorts! I have a love/hate relationship with them as well, since I don’t find them to be very comfortable, but I wear them anyways.

    This is such a cute look, love the embroidery on the shorts. I also love the addition of the kimono, it’s such a pretty colour. I’ve always shied away from shorts as I’m quite self-conscious of my thighs, maybe next summer haha. xx

    I feel you on this one, I am not a great fan of denim shorts, but I enjoy seeing how other people style them. This pair you wore looks cute and it’s spiced up by the floral embroidery. You didn’t look hooker-y at all :p. Wishing you a great day! xx

    You look gorgeous with those denim shorts, you should wear them more often. I’m a fan of denim shorts too, they are really comfy and easy to style with various tops.
