My "crazy" shorts

16 January 2011
















I don't care what anyone says, I love these shorts. I
thrifted them 2 summers ago and did a warm weather
post. Instantly I got a lot of mean anonymous comments,
namely one about my granny style haha. Anyways, it's
great to be able to wear them two years later in the winter!
I contemplated mixing them with another pattern but then
I decided- too crazy for me. Anyways, I had a great weekend and
tonight a few of my friends are coming back in town so its
going to be a SUPER girls night yay! Those are always
necessary.

School is starting up again for me on Tuesday, so things
will start to get quite busy. With school, my internship, and work
things might get a little crazy but I solemnly swear to keep
up with the blog!

The shorts are really cute! Big fan of the chunky cardigan too :)

Kirstin@CrimsonRosella said...

Don't ever listen to them. You are one of the main bloggers who have influenced me with "granny chic". The shorts are amazing and isn't it remarkable that you can still wear them 2 years later?

amberly said...

You styled them so well!! I didn't think they were crazy at all, just a wonderful pattern and goes great with the shirt and sweater! A little Navajo inspired?

Also LOVE your shoes! Where are they from?

Enjoy girls night!

Did those shorts used to be jeans? They remind me of the 80's style of jeans like from New Kids On The Block. They are defo different anyway, so who cares what those cowardly anons think.

Nnenna said...

K said...

They look a bit like cut-off climbing trousers... but in a good way...
