These Summer Shorts Make You Forget About Your Sticky Legs

July 11, 2016
Happy Monday beautiful people! I hope you all are having a great first day of the week. About a week ago, we finally made it go to The Museum of Fine Arts Houston to see the Kusama exhibit and rest of the museum. I’m sure most of you guys already know from the Snapchat and Instagram posts. I highly recommend visiting the museum if you are living in Houston. We spent the Sunday visiting the museum and went back on the following Thursday to see the Kusama since it was sold out. So, if you really don’t want to miss seeing the exhibition, I would suggest getting your tickets online in advance.

Okay, enough of the museum story!

If you are down to know about what kind of shorts to invest this summer and more summers coming up, this blog is just for you. πŸ™‚

Do you dream about having longer slimmer legs? If Yes,

We are in the same boat sister. Let’s be honest, most of us weren’t born with Miranda Kerr nice legs. I confess here that I don’t have the nicest long slim legs, but I learned how to play with different garments to give them more of a longer leg model illusion. By now, all you guys know I have a special respect for high-waist pants and skirts. As I said before, they transform your waist to its smallest version and make your legs look slimmer and taller. Even though they are great for all year around, I found my high-waist denim shorts and pants to be the hardest to wear in summer due to the high humidity in Houston. I know you are like me; we just hate having sticky legs in summer. Being said, high-waist flare shorts have been my favorite garment for the past two summers. The A-line shorts does the exact same job as the A-line skirt does. The waist is higher than usual high-waist shorts; it sits around your belly, which means smaller belly and higher waistline. Higher waistline automatically transforms your legs to be taller and slimmer even by wearing flat shoes or sandals. I honestly have people come up to me saying I look taller and trust me, I Love Love Love it.
Therefore dear friend, if you are not having a great relationship with your thighs at this moment and like to have longer legs, say hello to high-waist Wide-legged/Flare shorts this summer. People call these types of shorts all sorts of different names like, surfer shorts, A-line flare shorts or skirted shorts; so, be creative and call them whatever you like. πŸ™‚ Anything to give the impression of an A-line with at least an inch of aperture required between thigh and hem would work. Also, extra bonus point if there is a high-waist because it helps to raise the hip that is dropped low.
The shorts I’m wearing here are almost 2 years old, so it might be little hard to find them, but if I do, I will post them down below for you guys. I honestly don’t remember how many times I wore these shorts since they are so comfortable and easy to style. Even though the fabric is the mix of wool and silk, I have worn them all year around. I know the color black is really hard to wear in summer since it absorbs all the heat, but I guess the flare in these shorts makes everything breezy and cool on the bottom half. So, don’t be so critical about the color especially if the fabric is made out of cotton or silk.
  • Fabric Advice:

As far as the fabric goes, I suggest picking a mix of at least two textiles. What I mean is don’t go and buy %100 cotton or linen, because they will wrinkle up super fast especially when you are driving. What’s more annoying is having wrinkles all over the pleated layers. The shorts will end up looking like a hot mess after 15 minutes into wearing them and your money will swim its way down the drain.

For this outfit, I tried to maintain a casual daywear look. I paired the shorts with a plain white T-shirt and a pair of flat pink sandals just to have a bit of pop of color in the outfit. Since I was wearing a white canvas aka T-shirt on top, I wrapped my big necklace around my neck. After all, we were going to explore the museum; I needed to have my inner Greek goddess out before getting there. πŸ™‚
