frugal feathers: we wear short shorts

a sunday post! wow! i absolutely love long, lazy weekends. and that is just what this one has been so far. tonight we are hosting some of our dearest friends for dinner. they are visiting from california and we are so excited to see them! they have a son who is two months older than amelia and i am really looking forward to seeing them interact now that they are both walking. i will try and take some photos of the kiddos and the dinner festivities that i can share later this week. i made some yummy white sangria that i am so excited to taste!!! mmm!!!

i'll be honest, i wasn't sure about posting these pictures. it has been so hot here lately and these jean shorts and crisp shirt were just calling my name the other day. it is such a cool, breezy outfit. but i am a mama, not a victoria's secret model (surprising, i know), and am not sure if mama should be wearing shorts this short (and sharing pics)! so i ran the photos by megan and she deemed them appropriate to post! and i trust her. so here goes...

shirt- Banana Republic, rummage sale, $3
shorts- Mossimo, Target, purchased new
shoes- J Crew, thrifted, Arc Value Village, $4 (on a 50% off day)
belt- thirfted, Arc, $1
necklace- garage sale, $1
bracelets- thrifted, don't remember the details

i hope you are all having a fab weekend. i know i am! i am so excited to share stories and photos later on this week.

  3. You are rocking this outfit! I am going to have to borrow this idea. Maybe you can be our inspiration Monday outfit photo one week.



  4. LOVE lazy Sundays - throw in a nap and I'm in Heaven! Mama or not, you have the legs for those shorts so work it lady! I'm looking forward to linking up again for tomorrow's outfit of the week. Enjoy your dinner (and Sangria!)

  5. Damn with great bod like that you should wear short shorts! Look great! Love your hair color too!

  6. You are adorable! And you look absolutely fabulous in those short shorts! Have a fun 4th!

  7. you are totally rockin' those shorts!
    i follow the Half Body Rule: if i'm wearing short shorts or a short shift dress, i'm wearing a 3/4 or long sleeve shirt or cardigan. if i'm wearing a low cut shirt i've paired it with capris or jeans.

  8. Totally appropriate and you look fresh, young(u are young) crisp and hot! I just tried white Sangria and it was so tasty. Happy 4th Nora. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  9. I don't think being a mother has anything to do with how short your shorts are... I mean, I wouldn't suggest strutting around in short shorts to drop the kids off at daycare or something but hey hah. You look good in 'em (and most definitely not trashy or dressing too young) and that's what counts.

  10. This is a great combination and you can wear it for sure!
