I recently put together the 'Lookbook' page on the blog and realized that I have only posted TWELVE outfits since my first outfit post a year ago. What a failure! A travesty! An average of only one outfit a month. That's a rubbish effort if you ask me. So in an effort to boost the number of outfits I share I decided to start a new series featuring the ultimate summer staple: the denim short. Classic. Effortless. Indispensable. Jean shorts have been around since the dawn of time it seems, or at least since I first saw the movie Now and Then with Christina Ricci in her cool tomboy plaid shirt, and Thora Birch with her jello bra - and decided I wanted to be them. Since then I've been through a plethora of shorts, from the itsy bitsy to the teensy weensy (hello high school), and now I think I've finally found a pair that's juuust right. Naturally I've been living in them - I think the secret is I sized UP two sizes, for that Alexander Wang slouch. I wore it here with my Taylor Tomasi-inspired blazer, also worn here.
