I feel like it’s way too early to be discussing my shorts for the summer since lately the weather has struggled to even feel like spring, but I bought these shorts in hopes to manifest some warmer weather. Hopefully this works! I tried them on at home, styled them, and just had to share them with y’all today. So here are some mirror pics of me in my new favourite shorts (even though I’m sitting and you can’t really see them lol)!
What I love most about these shorts is that they’re longer than your typical denim shorts. I’m sure you know the ones. The shorts that make your butt hang out? The ones that could also be considered underwear? Am I sounding real old right now? These are kind of a mid length pair of denim shorts. Bermuda-style is what I want to say but maybe that’s wrong. I appreciate how distressed they are. I think it gives them a tougher/edgy vibe (more “hip”). Honestly, it’s what I feel most comfortable in these days. I do not have the body for the “short-shorts” anymore, and I’m okay with that!
Despite them being longer and not your typical denim shorts, I really do believe we’ll be seeing a lot of similar shorts this year. Not just denim ones, but in all other fabrics! I’m really into this boxer shorts trend and I have a few in my Free People cart at the moment lol. I actually purchased the shorts I’m wearing from Free People. I got a size 24 (shocking because I can’t fit in any other 24s!) and they’re called the “Sequoia Shorts”. If you’re wondering about the fit, they run a little big (which actually now makes sense as to why I fit the size 24 lol). The colour I picked up is “Surf’s Up” but they have a darker wash and a green pair as well. I’ll link them here if you’re interested: https://www.freepeople.com/shop/sequoia-shorts/?category=SEARCHRESULTS&color=106&searchparams=q%3Dsequoia&type=REGULAR&quantity=1
For the rest of the look, I wore this thrifted polo that was originally for my boyfriend (I think). I’m wearing a lot of my boyfriend’s clothes because I’m just not comfortable in this new body of mine unless I’m in something baggy. Does anyone else feel this way? I do get the confidence to wear tighter clothing and you can see that in some of my other outfit posts, but it comes in waves. Most days I want to wear something big and flow-y.
I got a lot of compliments on my socks on Instagram! These white frilly guys are from TOPSHOP a long time ago and I’m shocked I’ve taken such good care of them! They look as good as new! They’re like my current favourite socks to wear with these loafers. The infamous Zara ones. OH! This reminds me! I placed an order yesterday with Zara because THEY HAVE MORE SHOES THAT ARE IN A SIZE 5!!! I was so thrilled. I never get fancy shoes that come in my size! It’s such a rare occasion when I’m provided multiple options. When it comes to shoes that aren’t sneakers, I feel like I really have to settle. For sneakers, I just order the children’s version (Chucks, Vans, Nike Air Forces, etc.) I even get my Crocs in the Junior’s section! Anyways, I’m super excited to share with y’all my two new big girl pairs (if they even fit). Sometimes a size 5 will really feel like a size 6, but my fingers are crossed!
Jewelry is still the same. I haven’t changed the pieces that I’m loving. I mean, I guess that’s a great sign, right?! If you’ve been interested in any of my Mejuri or BonBonWhims pieces, I think they’re definitely worth it. I NEVER take them off. Well, I take them off to sleep but you know what I mean lol. The blue ring is from Neon Afternoon/ @neonafternoon on Instagram. My friend Holli is selling these brass rings coated in coloured enamel and she’s really taking off! I’m so proud of her! She’s got a ton of fab designs so you should really check her out! The final piece to this outfit is this baby canvas tote bag. I love this baby pink colour. I’m OBSESSED with baby pink right now. I really think it’s going to be a colour of the season. I’m not as obsessed with baby pink as I am with green, but it’s close. This bag was picked up at Aritzia a couple of years ago so I’m not sure if they’ll still have it.

I’ve got a one more fun thing I want to say before I go: MY SISTER AND I HAVE SHARED OUR SMALL JEWELRY BUSINESS ON INSTAGRAM! We posted yesterday and I was so nervous that I thought I was going to throw up. Even if it’s a simple introductory post, I still get so in my head about it. I guess I’m just worried about failing. I mean, I’ve never really had my own business before. But I won’t know unless I try! Please give us a follow! We’re @neverskipabead! I think our name is so cute. What do you think?! We’re going to have a ton of beaded jewelry options. I really want to experiment with different types of beads. Nothing is for sale yet but we’ve got things officially in motion and I can’t be more excited. I’ve learned so much from this, too. It’s a lot of work but I think it’s been rewarding despite not having any sales ha-ha. It’s a learning experience! I’ll have a full blog post about the brand coming soon!
I hope you’re all safe and well! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Until next time,
– Tiny ❤
