i’m wearing: loft tank (old), nautical print shorts are from my fave vintage etsy shop yeye boutique, michael kors studded moccasin loafers (similar), michael kors watch and my hobo lorna crossbody bag c/o hobo.

i brought these shorts with me to palm springs and as soon as i put them on, i could tell my husband was not a big fan. his first words were “um, those look like grandma shorts…are they skorts?” i’ll admit they are a little flowy AND pretty high-waisted but i LOVE the print. so instead of tucking in a blouse, i paired them with this silk tank to make me look slightly less grandma-ish. i think? what does he know anyway?! =)

    I love them. Of course at first glance, I just thought it was a skirt. πŸ™‚

    I think I would like them better tucked in and belted…just for more shape.

    As much as we love hubby, fashion input maybe not so much? Of course these are adorable!!! His comments are always funny….you need to compile a list of his most hilarious fashion “insights”!

    Boys don’t know anything. No grandma’s top area (you know…boobs?) would look that great in that top. Silly boys.

    Hey doll,

    Thank you for the constant support, they look great on you πŸ™‚ StΓ©phane is always asking me when I will stop wearing over size clothing, if it was up to him I would be wearing tight form fitting clothing all the time, he has to learn πŸ˜‰

    I’m totally amused that your husband knows what a skort is HAHAHA!
    Love the print on the shorts, girl. Don’t worry, my BF definitely questions some of my fashion choices. You look greatttt.
